Health Policy Plus (HP+) is a USAID-funded, five-year, $185 million project awarded to Palladium (formerly Futures Group) on August 28, 2015. HP+ has a mandate across global, country, and subnational levels to strengthen and advance health policy priorities in HIV, family planning and reproductive health (FP/RH), and maternal health. It 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, and by strengthening in-country partners’ capacity to navigate complex environments for effective policy design, implementation, and financing aligned to their priorities. We carry forward proven approaches to preserve achievements. These approaches inform how we manage programs and engage with stakeholders, and tools and techniques improve decision making and the achievement of predetermined goals.
Under predecessor USAID- and other donor-funded projects, Palladium, and its partners have worked for several years with Mozambican partners and stakeholders to improve the enabling environment for HIV; FP/RH; and maternal, newborn, and child health (MNCH). In the past decade, Palladium (as Futures Group) led the USAID global Health Policy Initiative (HPI, 2005–2010) and Health Policy Project (HPP, 2010–2015). The latter was active in Mozambique and several other East and Southern African countries. HPP Mozambique collaborated with USAID and the Government of the Republic of Mozambique (GOM) Ministry of Health (MISAU) from December 2012 to August 2016 on a field program that supported RMNCAH (Reproductive, Maternal, Neonatal, Child, and Adolescent Health) costing, modeling, gender, advocacy, and capacity strengthening experience.
Through Law No. 09/2002 from February 12th and its regulation approved by the Decree No. 23/2004 from August 20th, the State Financial Administration System (SISTAFE) was created with the aim of modernizing the Financial Administration systems in Mozambique. In an effort to modernize the system, a software to support SISTAFE was created and called the e-SISTAFE. To further this modernization the Ministry of Economy and Finance (MEF) identified the need to integrate the Planning and Budgeting functions into a single instrument, which resulted into restructuring the State budget subsystem into the Planning and Budgeting subsystem.
However, the different program structures throughout the country do not allow for automated mapping of existing activities from the various Ministerial Modules, which inhibits the ability to elaborate and execute the state budget via e-SISTAFE. To ensure that the separate ministerial modules are linked to e-SISTAFE, the MEF requires support to revise the conceptual model and programs at the Ministry of Health (MISAU) and to ensure that budget elaboration and execution can be performed via e-SISTAFE.
The MEF and the Ministry of Health have requested the assistance from HP+ to consolidate the planning and budget functions, via a module that will work in conjunction with e-SISTAFE to produce the desired results. The ultimate goal of the new module is to increase effectiveness in health governance and achieve a more responsive, participatory, transparent, and accountable health financing system. The HP+ team will work with the MEF and MISAU to collaborate on the development and implementation of the new module.
HP+ is seeking the services of a qualified individual to provide technical assistance (TA) to MISAU in Mozambique. The TA will be expected to work closely with MISAU, MEF and HP+ to design, develop, and implement informatics solutions for the planning and budgeting module of e-SISTAFe.
