Health Service Functionality project Data Liaison Consultant Jobs Description
The WHO Health Service Functionality project’s main objective is to provide comprehensive, definitive, and routine information on health service availability throughout South Sudan, in support of the South Sudan Ministry of Health. This entails collection, harmonization, verification, analysis, and visualization of data points using service delivery data collected by various partners in South Sudan. The Health Service Functionality project has operated since 2018 and generated a database of over 20,000 health facility service availability reports. The HSF team then uses this master database to produce an interactive dashboard and routine bulletins that combine health service availability data with population, disease surveillance, and other relevant data to produce a rich picture of the health context in South Sudan. With quality information products routinely produced, the HSF would like to expand the availability, visibility, and use of this information in health system decision-making by key stakeholders, including MOH, donors, and implementing partners. The HSF team has already been in communication with and again the support of the MOH Undersecretary for these efforts.
As this is a complex project with numerous partners, WHO requires a strong, experienced Data Liaison consultant with demonstrated coordination ability and impressive information management skills to move this effort forward.
The main objective of the WHO Health Service Functionality (HSF) Data Liaison consultancy is to liaise with MOH, donors, and other partners to drive improved use of data and information in health system planning and decision-making. The consultant will be responsible for routinely engaging partners and stakeholders to assess analysis needs, share relevant analyses and information, and support use of this information for decision-making including via Data Review and Action Meetings chaired by MOH. He/she will also be responsible for routine data tasks, such as gathering data from partners for input and management in the HSF master database and support with other data tasks as needed. He/she will work in close collaboration with and under the technical supervision of the HSF Technical Advisor.
