Belgian Development Agency Jobs in Uganda

The Strategic Purchasing of Health Services in Uganda (SPHU) Intervention is part of the Indicative Programme of Cooperation (ICP) 2012-2016 negotiated between Uganda and Belgium. The Belgian contribution is 6,000,000 €. The Specific Agreement will be for a duration of 42 months. The duration of the actual implementation phase is set at 30 months.


The SPHU intervention will work in close collaboration with the current interventions of the bilateral Belgian Cooperation in the health sector (ICB II and PNFP) and consolidate them into a Programme Approach.

This will be done in view of supporting the scaling up the Result Based Financing (RBF) experience in the Rwenzori and West-Nile regions towards a sustainable national RBF strategy, rolled out in other regions of the country, under Ministry of Health (MoH) leadership and in collaboration with other Development Partners supporting RBF.

This experience will also feed the longer-term reflection on strategic health financing and more specifically the development of National Health Insurance Scheme (NHIS).
