Consultant II at the Management Sciences for Health Jobs in Nigeria


  • The Management Sciences for Health (MSH), a global health nonprofit organization, uses proven approaches developed over 40 years to help leaders, health managers, and communities in developing nations build stronger health systems for greater health impact.

  • We work to save lives by closing the gap between knowledge and action in public health.

    Overview

    Background

  • The overarching aim of the Global Fund Resilient & Sustainable Systems for Health RSSH project is to improve the health and well-being of the Nigerian people by identifying and addressing systemic issues affecting the optimal delivery of health services in Nigeria.

  • The resulting high-level interventions have been designed to follow the Global Fund’s framework for RSSH that is built on the essential building blocks of WHO for a well-functioning health system.

  • The RSSH grant aims to continue strengthening and expanding the capacity of systems to address health issues in a sustainable, equitable and effective manner, including for the three diseases.

  • By strengthening systems for health, it is also expected that they will be prepared for and able to cope with any potential future shocks.

  • While disease grants provide preventive, diagnostic, treatment, care and support services, as well as help strengthen disease-specific enablers to ensure effective implementation of disease programs, RSSH investments contribute to addressing system- wide constraints that not only affect the three diseases but other health programs as well.

  • To this end, the Global Fund’s RSSH investments help strengthen the level of integration of national HIV, TB and malaria programs into national systems for health.
