Palladium Group Recruitment for DRMS National Consultant

Company Description:
Palladium is a global leader in the design, development and delivery of Positive Impact - the intentional creation of enduring social and economic value. We work with foundations, investors, governments, corporations, communities and civil society to formulate strategies and implement solutions that generate lasting social, environmental and financial benefits.
We are recruiting to fill the position below:
Job Title: DRMS National Consultant
Ref No: req8649
Location: Nigeria
Project Overview and Role
  • The Nigerian HIV and AIDS resource mobilization strategy was drafted in the year 2012 by National Agency for the Control of AIDS (NACA) with support from DFID (ENR project). The document addressed how the Government of Nigeria could ensure the predictable and sustainable availability of adequate financial resources for the AIDS sector over the next 10 years (by 2022). That strategy concluded that, under a baseline scenario, a shortfall of resources would exist for much of the period under consideration, with a total financing gap for HIV and AIDS of Naira 732 billion from 2013 to 2022. Due to an anticipated decline in international donor support and increasing resource needs, the financing gap would continue to grow reaching Naira 141 billion in 2022, equivalent to 0.12% of GDP. The strategy advocated for public sector mainstreaming, decentralization and private sector contributions, social health insurance and efficiency savings.
  • A series of consultations were held with major HIV/AIDS stakeholders including NACA with corresponding review of several documents related to HIV & AIDS control and the Nigeria economy. A national HIV and AIDS resource mapping and strategy development document was developed and, after the results were validated at a National stakeholders meeting led by NACA, the following four strategic priorities were identified for the mobilization of resources for HIV and AIDS programming in Nigeria:
    • Increasing government allocation to HIV and AIDS programming through public sector mainstreaming and improved budgeting
    • Mobilizing resources from the private sector through alternate sources and direct contribution to HIV and AIDS programming
    • Increasing efficiency and equity in the management of HIV and AIDS resources
    • Strengthening the institutional arrangement for resource mobilization and capacity building for resource management, including financial reporting
  • These strategic priorities constituted the basis for implementing the resource mobilization efforts for HIV and AIDS in Nigeria. Eight years later, in the light of current realities and emerging issues, this document needs to be reviewed and updated. In November 2019, NACA met with the Health Policy Plus project (HP+) to discuss a potential collaboration. It was agreed that the current DRM strategy requires a thorough review and update in order to identify and step-up renewed efforts to mobilize domestic and private sector funding to cover the financing gap.
  • HP+ is a global USAID-funded project with a mandate across global, country, and sub-national levels to strengthen and advance health policy priorities in the areas of TB and HIV. HP+ aims to improve the enabling environment for equitable and sustainable financing of health services, supplies, and delivery systems through policy development, and implementation.
Primary Duties and Responsibilities
  • Historically, the HIV response in Nigeria has received enormous resources from international donors. To be on course to end AIDS as a public health threat by 2030, the country needs to increase the amount of resources available for HIV programming. In recent years, major donors have reduced funding for the HIV response in low- and middle-income countries. This shows an urgent for countries like Nigeria to begin to mobilize resources domestically for HIV and AIDS.
  • One of the key elements to ensure timely, coordinated and effective “home” driven HIV financing is the availability of a robust and innovative Resource Mobilization Strategy which succinctly articulates workable and practicable ways and means for growing the resource pool in-country. Some of the strategies included in the 2012 DRM strategy need to be reviewed and updated.
  • To this end, HP+ in collaboration with NACA will engage a National Consultant to undertake the development of a Domestic Resource Mobilization Strategy by conducting a robust resource mapping study with a costed roadmap of actions for updating the DRMS from 2021 - 2025.
Objectives of the Consultancy
Conduct a robust mapping of expected financing sources through:
  • Historical review of past performance on domestic resources to establish a baseline for DRMS 2021 - 2025 using desk review of relevant documents, and conducting a total of 12-15 key informant interviews (KIIs) with officers from NACA, FMOH, LSACA, NHIS, SHIS, private sector, and CSOs.
  • Estimation of prospective available resources for 2021 – 2025 by conducting desk review of relevant grant application, NSP 2021-2025, and other relevant documents.
  • Work with NACA to update DRMS 2021 - 2025 through:
  • Creation and/or reactivation of a multi-sectoral HIV DRM Technical Working Group (TWG) that will review the findings from the resource mapping exercise.
  • Facilitation of key stakeholders’ meeting to discuss and develop a revised DRM 2021 -2025.
  • Establishment of additional systems and processes for monitoring implementation of the updated DRMS with a clear and integral monitoring and evaluation plan.
Roles and Responsibilities of the National Consultant:
The National Consultant will work as part of the team of partners under NACA’s supervision and guidance while collaborating technically with HP+, UNAIDS, and WHO. S/he will be under the day-to-day supervision of the Deputy Director/Head, Government Resources Division and the overall oversight will be provided by the Director of Resource Mobilization, NACA. The Consultant’s responsibilities will be to:
  • Conduct the resource mapping exercise and carry out approximately 15 KIIs, with technical oversight from HP+. The methodology for the resource mapping, the KII discussion guides, and the list of people to be interviewed will be developed by HP+ and provided to the Consultant. HP+ will directly source identified information required from PEPFAR and carry out compilation of reports at HQ.
  • Work closely with NACA to update the DRMS, with technical oversight from HP+. The Consultant will develop detailed implementation steps for the DRMS and a comprehensive resource mobilization and partnership strategy that includes an analysis of past fundraising experience and best practice from different sectors, baseline assessment and projected cost versus available resources, the changing HIV financing landscape and the need to update the existing DRM framework, including HIV domestic funding through health insurance. This will also include support to structural, implementation and monitoring mechanisms for the DRM strategy.
  • Support the activation and strengthening of the HIV DRM TWG. The Consultant will be expected to engage and strengthen the multi-sectorial HIV DRM TWG to drive the implementation of the DRMS and build capacity of DRM TWG and NACA’s Health Financing Unit (HFU) to increase the effectiveness of their resource mobilization efforts.
  • Support the set up and activation of a dedicated HFU within NACA that will engage with the DRM TWG and other stakeholders, drive DRM efforts and serve as technical powerhouse for the DRM efforts.
  • Provide guidance to NEWPHAN and CISHAN on how to design, implement and monitor their DRM activities.
Expected Outputs and Deliverables
The assignment will be for a duration of 40 business days to be completed within a period of five (5) months. This National Consultant will be responsible for these deliverables:
  • A Resource mapping report, including a summary of all documentation reviewed to draft the report, and the detailed notes from all KIIs
  • Submit inputs for, and a thorough review of, the Revised and finalized DRMS
  • Provide support to HP+ coordinating validation meetings and workshops with key stakeholders
  • Demonstrated support to the reactivation of NACA’s DRM TWG and a functional HFU, including organizing a roundtable with the DRM TWG

Palladium Group Recruitment for LASHMA Consultant

Company Description:
Palladium is a global leader in the design, development and delivery of Positive Impact - the intentional creation of enduring social and economic value.

Job Title: LASHMA Consultant
Location: Lagos, Nigeria
Project Overview and Role
  • The Social Health Insurance plan known as the Lagos State Health Scheme (LSHS) is in line with the Lagos State Health Scheme Law (Law No.4 of 2015), which makes Lagos State Health Scheme mandatory for all residents of Lagos State, including employees in the public and private sectors, self-employed and the unemployed.
  • The Lagos State Health Management Agency (LASHMA) was established as a public-private partnership to promote, regulate and supervise the activities of the LSHS. Thus, LSHS is a system of advance financing of healthcare expenditure through contributions and premiums paid into a common pool, called the Lagos State Health Fund (LASHEF). It was created to provide a social security system that guarantees needed health services to people paying annual premium contributions. It is primarily a risk-sharing arrangement that can improve resource mobilization and equity in the healthcare sector.
The regulatory functions of LASHMA are:
  • The operationalization of the regulations unit of the Agency would enable many Lagosians who require the benefits of the health scheme but lack the necessary awareness and opportunities to get healthcare insurance for themselves and their families to onboard unto the scheme through domestication of the LASHMA regulatory functions. More so, monitoring and sanctioning of erring HMOs and healthcare facilities would further strengthen the health scheme and increased accountability and advocacy to encourage more Lagosians to utilize the LSHS.
  • To this end, HP+ wishes to engage a Consultant to undertake the development of a framework of operations for implementing the Regulatory role established by the Law in line with relevant stakeholders and policy framework of the Lagos State Health Scheme.

  • Registration of Lagos State Residents, Employers and Employees. Subject to the guidelines made under the Law, all residents should be registered under the Scheme. The LASRRA registration number is a pre-requisite for registration into the Scheme and itself grants eligibility and access to all benefits available under the Scheme. All employers from public and private sector are expected to register with LASHMA to obtain a Corporate Identification Number (CIN) and shall register their employees with the Health Maintenance Organization (HMOs) of their choice.
  • Registration of HMOS, Mutual Health Association (MHAs) and Allied Association

  • The initial phase of the Propcom Mai-karfi programme ran from 5th December 2011 to 31st December 2017. PM now has a three-year extension (2018-2021) to support the Government of Nigeria’s integrated security, political and economic response in stabilising and rebuilding the North-East.
  • The extension delivers interventions to facilitate systems development, stimulate market recovery, and rebuild livelihoods across the nine North-East states of Nigeria.
PM’s Agricultural Mechanisation Focus and Plans for Scale Up:
  • However, millions of smallholder farmers remain who are yet to access tractor services due to limited investment in the agricultural mechanisation sector and resulting in a dearth in the number of tractors available for service provision.
  • To this end, Propcom Mai-karfi is supporting the Nigeria Investment Promotion Commission (NIPC) to identify and map the opportunities for investment in agricultural mechanisation, expected to result in credible, bankable and investible propositions that attract investments from domestic and foreign sources into various points within the mechanisation value chain.
  • Since December 2011, PM has partnered with private sector actors to develop and implement successful models for enhancing the availability and supply of agricultural mechanisation services in Nigeria.
  • As a result, over one hundred and fifty thousand (150,000) smallholder farmers have benefitted from improved access to mechanised services and recorded improvements in productivity, incomes and livelihoods.
