Job Title: Financial Costing Expert

Job Ref.: req7868

Program Activity
Consultancy to lead the costing of the 5-year National Strategic Plan (NSP-TB for 2021-2025) for NTBLCP and other related financial analysis to ensure appropriate budgetary allocation for the NSP activities
Background

Health Policy Plus (HP+) is a global USAID-funded five-year project with a mandate across global, country and sub-national levels to strengthen and advance health policy priorities in the areas of family planning and reproductive health (FP/RH), HIV, and maternal health.

HP+ aims to improve the enabling environment for equitable and sustainable health services, supplies, and delivery systems through policy development and implementation, with an emphasis on voluntary, rights-based health programs.

HP+ will help public health and policy leaders attach higher priority to their national and sub-national health needs, secure sustainable financing, advance health equity, and monitor policy implementation to ensure gains stay on track.

HP+ aims to secure long-term enduring change by working with coalitions both inside and outside of health and showing common cause with neglected populations and other development actors. Central elements of HP+ revolve around building in-country capacity, institutionalizing achievements of past investments, and promoting country ownership of programs and initiatives.

HP+ also provides support to the National Tuberculosis and Leprosy Control Program (NTBLCP) in the area of sustainable financing for TB. Currently, NTBLCP is drafting its National Strategic Plan (NSP-TB) for 2021-2025 and HP+ is supporting it to cost the NSP.

The NSP-TB is a crucial document that will drive the activities of the NTBLCP in line with the vison and mission of the program. Effective implementation of the NSP-TB requires accurate costing of the NSP and analysis of the NSP performance in the past years.

Roles and Responsibilities
The consultant is expected to be a full-time consultant and will be required to develop finalized cost estimates for the NSP-TB and analyze the financial gap for the NTBLCP in the last 5 years. The analyses will also include the cost of monitoring the progress towards the NSP goals.

Specific Role of the Consultant includes:
Review the draft NSP (2021-2025) to identify the details of the thematic areas to be costed.

Review the budget of the 2015 – 2020 NSP and the expenditure till date to help with the financial gap analysis.

Prepare and present clear and standard methodology for the costing exercise taking into consideration relevant recommendations from recognized institutions such as WHO and Global Fund.
