|Starting Date :|
(date when the selected candidate is expected to start)
|Duration of Initial Contract :||(1) One Month|
|Expected Duration of Assignment :||(1) One Month|
UN field personnel in Somalia are deployed in areas where national medical facilities are often nonexistent or substandard or inaccessible. UN field personnel in Somalia are exposed to various health and security hazards that may result in disease; psychological trauma and life threatening injuries. Dedicated, effective primary health, occupational health and emergency medical services may mitigate negative outcomes of trauma, injuries and health complications providing better chances for saving lives as well as for faster and better recovery.
The objective of the United Nations (UN) Clinic is to provide primary clinical care and occupational health services to all locally and internationally recruited personnel of the UN Common System and their recognized dependents in countries where the locally available medical facilities are considered inadequate as determined by the UN Medical Services Division (UNMSD).
Under the overall management of the UNDP Deputy Country Director, Operations, and the technical supervision of Medical Services Division, healthcare services provision will result in optimizing the health and well-being of UN field personnel and their eligible dependents in Somalia.
UN Clinics in Somalia are presently administered as follows (UN Clinics administered by UNDP, administered by UNDSS MERT as well as UN Clinics administered by UNSOS):
Harmonization of the healthcare delivery provided by the UN Clinics administered by UNDP, UNDSS MERT and UNSOS Medical team will streamline the medical care in Somalia. The harmonized system will maximize the use of the manpower and standardized available resources to provide high standard of medical care to UN Staff and their eligible dependents.
It is vital that the available medical facilities are used to the maximum of their capacity at the lowest possible cost.
Duties and Responsibilities
A successful candidate should have prior experience of similar projects of cost-cutting measures of medical facilities as well as previous experience in assessing UN owned medical facilities, i.e. UNDP and DPKO/DPI. The consultants’ efforts should focus on finding areas of the operation of the medical facilities where cost optimization will not lead to deterioration to the quality of the health services being offered. They should assess the facilities and equipment, coverage of beneficiaries per region and sources of financing vs the long-term strategy and financial sustainability. The consultant will have to interview a number of stakeholders, including but not limited to, UN Physician, DSS and UNSOS focal points, prior to making the final recommendations and suggesting viable options. The consultant should also assess the administrative costs of the medical facilities. The consulting will preferably be knowledgeable and familiar with the scope of services provided by the UN Clinics administered by UNDP, DPKO/DPI.
