Options Consultancy seeks two Leadership and Governance (L&G) Provincial Coordinators, to provide technical assistance (TA) under the D4D Thematic Area to the sub-national governments and enable delivery against the Nepal Health Sector Support Programme 3 (NHSSP3) objectives.
The L&G Provincial Coordinator will provide technical assistance (TA) under the L&G thematic area. The aim of this post is to provide effective technical inputs to the Provincial Ministry of Social Development (MoSD) and Provincial Health Directorate (PHD) to enable them to deliver against the objectives of NHSP 3, especially improving policy performance at the sub-national level through better formulation and implementation of new and existing policies, at the Provincial and palika level. Under the leadership of the L&G Thematic Team Lead, the L&G Provincial Coordinator will develop the framework for providing technical support under this thematic area at sub-national levels and oversee its technical delivery to ensure thematic priorities are met.
The main purpose of this role is to support government counterparts to carry out their governance functions efficiently, effectively, equitably and in a responsive manner, ensuring systems and structures are appropriate in delivering high quality and accessible health services. They will support NHSSP’s “politically smart and adaptive programming” objectives by understanding MoSD/OHD organisational functions and relationships in the system and contributing to effectiveness of those related to health programming budgets and expenditure.
The L&G Provincial Coordinator has overall responsibility for providing strategic technical direction to this thematic area within the focal province and ensuring integration with the other thematic areas. They will also support MoSD policy, planning, budgeting and programmes to be evidence-based by proactively seeking opportunities to feed evidence and influence decisions. They will lead at the provincial level to inform, share robust evidence, build capacities of counterparts in MoSD and PHD (and other relevant sub-national government bodies as needed) to identify policy and programme needs at the sub-national level and respond to them through evidence-based and well-designed initiatives that leave no-one behind. In particular, they will have to plan, deliver the TA and collaborate on an ongoing basis with other spheres of governance (and NHSSP TA) to ensure coherence in planning and implementation across the spheres.
