  • 07/05/17--13:19: Kenya: Health Economist
  • Organization: Living Goods
    Country: Kenya
    Closing date: 04 Aug 2017

    To achieve Universal Health Coverage it is critical for governments and bi- and multi-lateral donors to prioritize and invest more in community health. Living Goods is committed to providing the evidence and support necessary to enable this shift in budgets and priorities and are working closely with the Government of Kenya alongside key partners to build a country-specific investment case to demonstrate the precise value of investing in community healthcare and where savings can be made. Living Goods is supporting hiring of a consultant to carry out research, modelling, and costing out the investment case for funding community health in Kenya, which will help us:

    • Prioritize community health: Ministry of Health (MoH) values the investment in community health and prioritizes budgeting and funding community health initiatives
    • Shift in how community health is funded: Major donors such as USAID, World Bank and UNICEF designate higher proportion of funds to community health in Kenya, and donors embrace more innovative modes of financing to mobilize large-scale resources
    • Better quality metrics, data collection and reporting: highlight the critical metrics that can be improved by community health which should prompt donors and governments to align their KPIs and invest in better data collection methods
    • Increase Payment-by-Results financing for community health: Increasing the interest in Payment-by-Results by creating a more compelling value proposition for investors and donors to fund community health. This is intended to increase both the amount of funding available and direct funds into the most impactful initiatives increasing efficiency of resources deployed

    Project plan

    The investment case is for the whole country and not for specific counties, so the consultant is expected to:

    • Engage and manage stakeholder engagement to ensure relevant views are represented, and key stakeholders are brought into the process
    • Work with the MoH and relevant stakeholders and experts to design the methodology for the investment case consistent with the model created by the Financing Alliance, investment cases done in other countries and the UNICEF Community Health Planning and Costing Tool.
    • Collating data sets and information from interviews and secondary data sets to ensure a robust approach of determining ‘value’
    • Analyse the data to show the return on investment for community health
    • Develop deliverables to communicate and disseminate the findings

    Key activities

    • Stakeholder engagement

    Developing an investment case that accurately incorporates the true costs and benefit of community healthcare requires a deep engagement with the relevant stakeholders in government, donor and broader healthcare providers, especially to understand the differing impacts in different contexts i.e. urban/ rural, coastal/ inland.

    A steering committee and other key stakeholders must be engaged in the process of developing the investment case if it is to really shift perceptions of community health and catalyse a change in how it is funded and for the findings to be accepted by the wider health community.

    • Data collection and analysis

    Illustrative data and analysis required (not an exhaustive list):

    Costing of CHW program

    1. Recruitment
    2. Training
    3. Stipends and reimbursements (travel, lunches etc.)
    4. Supervisor time and costs
    5. Equipment, supply chain and logistics

    Return on Investment (Value of CHW programs)

    • Short-term value for money compared to facility-based care across the following services:

    • Vaccinations

    • Neonatal care

    • Family planning

    • Malaria

    • Community Management of Acute Malnutrition (CMAM)

    • HIV

    • Tuberculosis

    • Direct savings to the economy

    • Saving of child and maternal lives – Impact of ICCM

    • Reduction in cost of treating advanced stage diseases

    • Savings related to lower total care needs and treatment infrastructure including associated services for the population

    • Impact of education on basic hygiene and sanitation, education on childhood disease identification, immunisation nutrition, family planning on reducing disease

    • Impact of demand creation for sanitation/ hygiene/ nutrition products which prevent disease?

    • Indirect value

    • Effect on catastrophic cost for health care resulting from health crises e.g. Ebola/ cholera

    • Economic impact of reduced stunting and better educated population (reduced childhood illness)/ economic impact of increased employment

    • Increased productivity from a healthier adult population

    • Disease elimination – eradication of diseases

    • Broader benefits

    • Greater female empowerment women

    • Reducing patient costs

    • Enabling data collection on civil registration and vital statistics (improved policy making, avoidance of disaster e.g. energy and water crises etc.)

    • Enabling additional service delivery

    • Differences in costs, savings, broader benefits of community healthcare in different regions, community healthcare delivery systems, urban/rural contexts and different regulations and policies in different counties.

    Qualitative insights

    Collate qualitative insights for key stakeholders including how to prioritize different types of data, how to best build the case and the impact of different contexts on different value levers. A qualitative narrative will be expected alongside the numbers to explain where things could not be costed but value still exists.

    Scenarios

    The investment case should not be an absolute number but needs to show how different coverage levels, suites of activities and slightly different staffing structures result in different return on investment. Therefore, it is expected that the analysis will provide different investment scenarios to show the investment case for example for, full CHW coverage such as in the current policy versus partial coverage in just the highest need areas.

    • Report development and dissemination

    The consultant will collate the data and insights from stakeholders and analysis into a user-friendly report that can be used by stakeholders to advocate for increased investment. There will be opportunities to engage key stakeholders to review draft documents and feedback into the final set of deliverables. The report will also need to include a literature review of relevant investment cases previously done and other relevant studies.

    Deliverables and timeline

    Deliverables:

    Organization: American Red Cross
    Country: Philippines
    Closing date: 17 Aug 2017

    Background

    TTL Program Background

    The Tindog Tabang Leyteno (TTL) program is a 3.5 year USD 20 million program collaboratively implemented by the American Red Cross (ARC) in partnership with the Philippine Red Cross (PRC) towards the promotion of community resilience in areas affected by Typhoon Haiyan. The goal of the TTL program is “to contribute to building safe and resilient communities by identifying and addressing various factors that will help people sustainably rebuild their lives, livelihoods and assets while ensuring that future climate, environmental and disaster related risks are addressed and/or minimized.” The project strives to reach this goal through three objectives: “to increase PRC capacity in community based recovery and preparedness to enhance community resilience”, “to increase communities’ capacity to adopt resilient practices”, and “to increase household and community access to safer and more sustainable infrastructure and resources”. Although the program is implemented in an integrated fashion, program activities generally fall into one of six sectors: Shelter, Infrastructure, Livelihoods, Water, Sanitation and Hygiene (WASH), Health, or Disaster Risk Reduction (DRR). To better understand community needs the program uses a community-driven approach in which decision-making is led by Barangay Recovery Committees (BRC). These BRCs serve as key points of contact between the program and community and are instrumental in the planning, implementation, and monitoring of program interventions. A detailed description of sectoral interventions implemented to-date follows below:

    Shelter sector interventions include the Core, Shelter Retrofitting Assistance (SRA), and IDEALS programs. The Core program is intended for households with severely damaged homes and provides households with one of two PRC approved core shelter designs in addition to a latrine and provision of training on Safe Shelter Construction Techniques (SST). The SRA program provides households with moderately damaged homes with a cash grant, in-kind construction materials, technical oversight, and training on SST. The IDEALS program provides legal support for households with tenuous land rights towards improved land tenure.

    Infrastructure sector interventions include the construction of Community Solar Lights, Multi-Purpose Halls, Community Drainage Systems, and a Stepped Pathway. All infrastructure projects were identified through the Participatory Rural Appraisal (PRA) process and are included in the communities’ Community Action Plans (CAP). Infrastructure selected for support were chosen based on a mix of community needs, interests, vulnerability, and capacity.

    Livelihoods sector interventions include the CCG Program, Agri-Extension Program, Skills Training and Enterprise Development (STED) Program, and the Community Managed Livelihood Program (CMLP). Through the CCG Program, households who lost productive assets during Typhoon Haiyan were provided conditional cash grants for the recovery of their livelihoods. These households were required to provide a proposal outlining their plan for replacement of assets and expenditure of granted funds were closely monitored against the initial proposal. The Agri-Extension Program provides households with agricultural production and marketing trainings for swine, poultry, fisheries, and vegetable producers. Following the trainings, households are then eligible to receive farm inputs or a cash grant to support the utilization of the production techniques learned during the training. The Skills Training and Enterprise Development (STED) program provides out-of-school youth with formalized skills training courses through local accredited technical institutions. Courses identified include welding, cooking, automotive, carpentry, and plumbing courses. Following the completion of the training courses, individuals are provided toolkits or cash grants towards the achievement of employment. The Community Managed Livelihoods Program (CMLP) provides established community groups and associations with cash grants towards the purchase of income-generating productive assets and with trainings towards the improvement of the group’s functioning.

    WASH sector interventions include the Participatory Hygiene and Sanitation Transformation (PHAST) Program, Child Hygiene and Sanitation Transformation (CHAST) Program, and the construction of water systems and latrines at the community and household levels. The PHAST program is a participatory process that seeks to address the major hygiene and sanitation issues faced by the community. The program provides trainings to community members on good hygiene and sanitation practices and supports the identification of hardware interventions required within the community. The CHAST program is similar to the PHAST program but focuses on schools and seeks to address the major hygiene and sanitation issues faced by schools. The program provides trainings to students on good hygiene and sanitation practices and supports the identification of hardware interventions required within the schools. Based on the hardware needs identified by the PHAST and CHAST programs, the WASH sector provides Level-1, Level-2, and Level-3 water systems within the community as well as providing latrines at the household level.

    The Health sector interventions includes the Community Based Health and First Aid (CBHFA) Program is a participatory process that seeks to address the major health issues faced by the community. The program provides trainings to community members on good health practices and supports the identification of interventions required within the community to promote good health.

    The DRR sector interventions includes the Community Based Disaster Risk Reduction (CBDRR) Program, Contingency Planning Program, Household Preparedness Planning Program, and DRR in Schools Program. The CBDRR Program is a participatory process that seeks to raise awareness of key DRR concepts within the community. The program provides trainings to community members on good DRR practices and supports the development of a community disaster risk reduction plan. The Contingency Planning Program works with communities to develop the Contingency Plans for the major hazards faced by the community. The Household Preparedness Planning Program works with households to develop household preparedness plans. The DRR in Schools Program works with schools to help train students and teachers on key DRR concepts

    TTL Program Scope and Reach

    The TTL program is currently operating in 4 municipalities and 23 barangays across Leyte Province in the Philippines. The targeted barangays are mostly non-contiguous and include densely populated urban barangays as well as remote rural barangays. Currently there are around 28,000 direct beneficiaries and an estimated 30,000 indirect beneficiaries.

    TTL Program Stakeholders

    In addition to donors and community members and government officials in the 23 targeted barangays, program stakeholders include ARC National Head Quarters staff, PRC National Head Quarters staff, PRC Haiyan Task Force Leyte Chapter staff, and PRC Leyte Chapter staff. The program also works in close coordination with the International Federation of Red Cross and Red Crescent (IFRC) and 14 other partnering national societies operating under the movement.

    TTL Program Surveys To-Date

    To date there have been three major data collection efforts conducted by the TTL program including an initial household profiling of all households within the TTL target areas, a baseline survey, and an evaluation of the program’s cash-based Shelter Retrofitting Assistance (SRA) program. A detailed description of each of these data collection efforts follows below:

    TTL Program Household Profiling

    The TTL program has previously conducted a census-based household survey of 5,706 households within the 23 barangays. Data collected included basic socio-economic data. This census-level data has been essential in providing data for beneficiary selection for program interventions and was used for the creation of beneficiary identification cards that are the backbone of the TTL program monitoring systems. These beneficiary identification cards have allowed for complete and efficient reporting and have allowed program managers to better understand the integration of program activities.

    TTL Program Baseline Survey

    The TTL program has previously conducted a baseline survey in August 2015 with data collected through a household-level survey administered to 563 households selected through simple random sampling with one-stage stratification by municipality. The baseline survey sought to enable the eventual assessment of the program’s effectiveness and impact against the outcome and goal level indicators included in the program logical framework.

    Shelter Retrofitting Assistance Evaluation

    The TTL program has previously conducted an evaluation of its Shelter Retrofitting Assistance (SRA) program which to-date has provided 3,459 households with cash grants averaging 426.30 USD per household and corrugated galvanized iron sheets averaging 12.82 per household. The SRA program has additionally trained 3,321 individuals on safe shelter techniques (SST). As the SRA program approached its end in May 2016, the need for an evaluation was established with a goal of better understanding the Relevance and Appropriateness; Efficiency; Effectiveness; Impact; and Sustainability of the program as well the program’s alignment with the RCRC Movement Fundamental Principles and Code of Conduct. The evaluation additionally sought to inform ongoing and future operations of the RCRC Typhoon Haiyan Operation as well as provide necessary information to ensure the TTL Program upholds it obligation to ensure accountability to beneficiary communities. The evaluation was undertaken across June, July, and August 2016.

    Scope of Work

    The TTL program is currently finishing its final year of implementation and is seeking to conduct a mixed methods evaluation using a sequential explanatory approach. The evaluation seeks to first understand “what happened” through the analysis of quantitative data collected through an endline survey designed to understand progress against outcome and goal level indicators outlined in the program Logical Framework. The evaluation then seeks to understand “why it happened” through the analysis of qualitative data drawn from existing secondary data and through the collection of primary data. In support of this evaluation, the TTL program is seeking a consultant to provide technical support related to endline survey tool development, enumerator training, data collection supervision, data analysis, and presentation of findings as well final evaluation question of interest formulation, tool development, enumerator training, data collection supervision, data analysis, and presentation of findings and recommendations.

    Endline Survey Detailed Overview

    Endline Survey Objectives

    The main objective of the survey is to collect quantitative data necessary for calculation of endline figures for goal and outcome level indicators within the Logical Framework.

    Endline Survey Geographic Scope

    The survey will cover the 23 target barangays of the TTL Program from the municipalities of Alang-Alang, MacArthur, Mayorga, and Tacloban City.

    Endline Survey Target Population

    The target population includes all 5,706 households with the 23 target barangays. The population includes 1,194 households in Alangalang, 1,112 households in MacArthur, 1,626 households in Mayorga, and 1,774 households in Tacloban. The average households size is 5.1 individuals with the eldest male in the household generally considered the head of household.

    Endline Sampling Frame

    The sample frame for the endline survey will be the household profiling list which includes all households within the targeted barangays. The household profiling list is considered to cover the entire population of interest. The sampling unit will be the household.

    Endline Survey Mode of Data Collection

    The mode of data collection will be personal interviews with data collected using Samsung Duos cellular phones running the ODK Collect survey application.

    Endline Survey Main Audience

    The main audience for the data collected from the survey will be the TTL program staff. All TTL staff efforts will be measured against the outcome-level indicators measured through the study. Additionally, ARC program delegates, ARC field management, ARC NHQ senior management, and PRC NHQ senior management will have special interest in the findings from this study. The survey will largely be used to better understand impact through comparison of baseline and endline data and will be used as an input for a final program evaluation, special information bulletins, case studies, and technical briefs.

    Endline Survey Sample Methodology

    The sample methodology will be a single stage stratified random sample.

    Endline Survey Sample Precision

    Survey estimates should have a level of precision less than or equal to 0.05.

    Endline Survey Sample Size

    The sample size for the study has been calculated as 600 households by the TTL staff however the consultant will be responsible for reviewing the calculations upon arrival. The finite population correction factor has been applied for each strata and a nonresponse rate of 15% is estimated at the strata and project level.

    Endline Survey Sample Stratification

    The sample design will be a single stage stratified random sample. The strata for this sample will be the municipality. The sampling unit will be the household and the selection methodology will be systematic random sampling within the strata. Clustering is not required because of the close proximity of households within the barangay.

    Living Goods aims to improve the lives of tens of millions of underserved people by transforming community health services across the developing world. We have developed a model that has been independently proven to reduce child mortality by 27%. And we do this extremely cost-effectively at a net cost of less than $2 per person per year. Our goal now is to scale this impact. Living Goods is on a rapid growth trajectory—we plan to expand our direct operations from 1.9 million people to reach 5.8 million people, almost tripling in size by 2020. However, to achieve multi-national scale and to truly create systemic change, we need to do more than grow our own direct operations. We must also scale through large, strategic partnerships with NGOs and with government. Living Goods presently works with many of the world’s leading visionary organizations across the corporate, social and government sectors. Current and past partners include BRAC, Care International, the Clinton Foundation, Marie Stopes, and PSI. With these ambitious goals, our PartnershipsDepartment and Business Development Department are both rapidly expanding, but continue to work closely together to scope partnerships and to raise significant funds from bilateral, multilateral and institutional donors in the US and globally.

    The Opportunity

    Living Goods is looking for an energetic, enthusiastic graduate to support two departments that work closely together. The role will spend approximately half their time working with each department.

    Partnerships: The Partnerships team in Living Goods is tasked with spreading our impact through policy and partners.

The candidate will support Living Goods Kenya and Uganda teams with setting up business development systems and processes and making sure new systems and processes are being used and refined—this will include processes to track new funding opportunities, manage relationships with implementing partners, and support proposal development.

    This is a flexible, exciting role supporting both departments which are squarely positioned both at the heart of Living Goods’ strategy and at the leading edge of our drive towards transformative change. We are seeking a pro-active person early in their career looking to get experience in a fast-paced health focused social enterprise at the forefront of innovation in international development. This position will require an exceptional eye for detail, solid writing, research and communications skills, and a drive to work hard. Successful candidates will be highly organised, able to take initiative and be willing to pitch in to support a variety of tasks when asked. As both teams continue to grow rapidly, this role has the potential to become an integral member of the Living Goods team, with scope for the individual in the long term to specialise according to their interests.

    This is a full-time role, based in Nairobi, Kenya. You will report to the Deputy Director, Business Development, with a dotted line report to the Senior Manager for Strategic Partnerships.
