Associate, Health Financing

Thu, 08 Sep 2016 00:00:00 GMT

Overview  In 2005, CHAI signed a Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) with the Government of Malawi (GoM) to strengthen health systems in the most challenged districts, provide national support to HIV/AIDS drug pricing and programmatic work, support the pilot and scale-up of prevention of mother-to-child transmission of HIV (PMTCT) initiatives, expand access to ART for children, strengthen Malawi’s lab system, and scale-up an integrated nutrition Program for children. CHAI’s support to Malawi has expanded to include Human Resources for Health (HRH), Vaccines (pneumococcal and rotavirus), and Health Financing. CHAI’s health financing program is working with 10 of these countries to support Ministries of Health to substantially and sustainably improve access to essential health services for their populations. Health financing is often insufficient and overly reliant on donors and individuals paying out of pocket at facilities. Low income countries in Africa and South East Asia see over half of the global disease burden, are home to 40% of the global population and account for only 3% of health spending. Donor contributions for health have plateaued, and in many countries are likely to decline in the coming years. Domestic resources for health are increasing, but the rate of growth in government spending dedicated to health fluctuates and is often insufficient to meet population needs. In addition, resources that are made available may not be spent efficiently. Healthcare providers face stock-outs, ration services among patients and charge informal or formal user fees, which can act as a deterrent for patients, and particularly the poor, to seek care. The Clinton Health Access Initiative (CHAI) seeks an Associate, Health Financing to help the Government of Malawi (GoM) address challenges of limited resources for the health sector. The Associate will be based in Lilongwe, Malawi and will report to the Program Manager, Health Financing within the Evidence for Impact Cluster. Malawi faces a challenge of limited resources for the health system, and CHAI has partnered with the government to seek new sources of financing and to realise maximum impact from existing financing. Currently the MoH is undertaking the development of the Health Sector Strategic Plan II (2016-2021) and revision of the country’s Essential Health Package (EHP). Over the next few years, CHAI will support the Department of Planning and Policy Development (DPPD) to overcome the health systems constraints to deliver the revised EHP to the entire population, including the quantification of key systems gaps and prioritization toward a phased EHP scale-up plan. In addition, CHAI will support DPPD in the development of systems and processes that will be improve coordination of government and donor financing for health systems investments toward Universal Health Coverage. Responsibilities Working in close collaboration with MoH, the Associate, Health Financing will: Serve as a trusted technical advisor to the MoH on a broad range of health financing and systems issues, enabling MoH to mobilize more resources into the health sector and distribute them equitably, effectively and efficiently; Collect, clean and analyze data on various areas of the health sector to quantify the available resources, costs and gaps in the health sector to inform planning, budgeting, and aid coordination; Support the MoH in operationalizing the delivery of the revised Essen[...]

Vietnamese Facilitator for Immigrant Fisher Outreach and Advocacy Pilot Program

Fri, 16 Sep 2016 00:00:00 GMT

For the past two years, Just Health Action and its partners have established a Vietnamese and Latino immigrant Advisory Groups (AG), representing two communities who may be eating contaminated seafood from the Lower Duwamish Waterway Superfund Site. Using a Participatory Learning & Action Model (PLA), the AG’s and interviews with community members have taught us that fishing provides them with health, cultural, spiritual connection to nature, and food security benefits. In turn, we have taught them about contaminated seafood in the Lower Duwamish and how consuming salmon is a safer option than eating resident seafood. In response, they shared ideas about outreach and alternatives to fishing the Duwamish River. Both the Vietnamese and Latino AG’s top request was to develop a community advocate peer training (promotores) program where the community can conduct their own outreach on fishing regulations and healthy fishing through a four phased approach: (1) Information: Meet with promotores to determine what they want to learn and hold ‘expert’ workshops; (2) Training: Develop curriculum and train promotores; (3) Outreach: Promotores conduct outreach in the communities; (4) Advocacy: Promotores present community needs to decision makers.

Vietnamese facilitator role and responsibilities
 Recruit 4-5 community advocates (promotores)
 Attend team meetings
 Co-plan workshops with team
 Co-facilitate workshops
 Assist in translating/interpreting meeting notes
 Help develop and translate curriculum
 "Mentor" promotores - Assist in outreach efforts or whatever their needs are
 Assist in presenting to decision makers
 Help prepare reports
 Provide cultural knowledge and expertise

Skills needed
 Fluent in both Vietnamese and English (Oral a must, written highly desired)
 Facilitating small groups
 Basic understanding of environmental health concepts and environmental justice

PhD position in vitro assessment of human variability in toxicology (1,0 fte)

Wed, 21 Sep 2016 00:00:00 GMT

Job description The Toxicology Division of the Institute for Risk Assessment Sciences (IRAS) is looking for a PhD candidate who will work in the in vitro toxicology group with Dr. Nynke Kramer on the ‘TK-TD MoHV’ project funded by European Food Safety Authority (EFSA). The objective of the project is to develop a web-based tool for EFSA and other toxicological risk assessors that integrates in vitro toxicokinetics (TK) and toxicodynamics (TD) assays to predict the variability in human health effects associated with chemical exposure. The same dose of a chemical or chemical mixture may induce largely variable toxic effects in humans. Currently, non-cancer risk assessment accounts for species- and inter-individual variation in toxic effects by applying a default, generic 100-fold uncertainty factor to derive an acceptable daily intake (ADI). The PhD candidate will work on devising a more mechanistically-based, chemical- and toxicity pathway-specific strategy to estimate the human variability in toxicity using in vitro cell based assays with TK/TD modeling. Data-rich chemicals are to be tested in batteries of in vitro cell-based assays to estimate the variation in liver and kidney toxicity. Qualifications We are looking for an ambitious PhD candidate with a strong interest in cross disciplinary research. An MSc in pharmacology, toxicology, (computational) biology, chemistry or related discipline is required. An affinity for kinetic modelling and statistics is advised. A background in cell culture and analytical chemistry is recommended. [...]
