    Location: Nigeria
    Schedule: Full-time
    Grade: No grade
    Contract duration: 30 days
    Contractual Arrangement: Individual service contractor
    Objective
    • Although the decentralization of health insurance was kick-started by the NHIS with support from key stakeholders, domestication was done by the states to fit their local peculiarities. This domestication which aligns with state priorities has resulted in variations in the design and operational modalities of the various schemes. There is a need to provide a common mechanism for coordinating and integrating these states schemes for efficiency and synergy while ensuring risk equalization across State pools.
    • This makes a case for the health insurance under one roof, which is an innovative approach for effective coordination within the health insurance space in Nigeria. This is to avoid duplication of efforts, streamline the roles of NHIS and respective SSHIAs, ensure risk equalization across State pools, while delineating the functions of other stakeholders including the private sector towards population coverage on basic minimum package of health services.
    • In light of the above, the NHIS has requested WHO to provide technical assistance towards achieving the above.

The NHIS commenced operations in 2009 and has had single-digit coverage due to challenges which include; constitutional, operational difficulties and failure of states to buy-in.
    • In order to encourage the states to buy-in into health insurance in the nation’s quest for Universal Health Coverage (UHC), NHIS decentralized the implementation of Health Insurance to the states in 2015. As a result of this strategic move, 34 States have already established functional health insurance and complementary schemes and are at different levels in the process of the implementation.
    Scope of work
    The Consultant will report to the Health Economist in WHO Nigeria. S/He will support the NHIS and SSHIS directly and in addition hold regular consultations with the relevant national and State institutions and key stakeholders. The consultant is expected to:

    • Support stakeholder consultations and workshops for consensus building on HIUOR
    • Articulate the resolutions arising from stakeholder consultations and desk into a single stakeholder owned blueprint for Health Insurance Under One Roof
    • Provide support using a template for unity of command and direction for all actors involved in health insurance implementation in Nigeria
    • Work with NHIS and relevant stakeholders to recommend strategies to overcome identified potential challenges in operationalizing HIUOR Blueprint
    • Ensure that the Blueprint contains a template for financial and operational integration for health insurance in Nigeria
    • Support production of draft HIUOR policy document for dissemination to the States
    Specific Deliverables:
    • Successful workshop (s) with the participation of relevant stakeholders
    • Framework for coordination of all health insurance initiatives developed by consensus
