USAID Jalin Project Job Vacancy: Office Administrator - Jalin MOH Secretariat, Jakarta

The USAID Jalin Project
Scope of Work
Office Administrator-Jalin MOH Secretariat
The USAID Jalin Project (hereafter referred to as “Jalin” or the “Project”) is a five-year initiative implemented by DAI Global, LLC and its consortium of partners to work with USAID to facilitate and support partnerships through a co-creation process that brings together a diverse range of public and private sector actors in six provinces—including North Sumatra, Banten, West Java, Central Java, East Java, and South Sulawesi—to leverage domestic resources, increase the pace at which reliable local evidence is made widely available and utilized to design and implement local maternal and newborn health solutions.

Jalin contributes to a maternal and newborn health movement in Indonesia that: (a) brings together actors, including those traditionally outside the health system, to use local evidence and global best practices to co-create, test and adapt local solutions; (b) addresses evidence gaps by identifying where and why maternal and newborn deaths are happening and uses that information to co-define and create local solutions; (c) engages the public and private sectors to co-finance scalable local solutions to support partnerships and ensure that the poor and vulnerable have access to essential services; (d) catalyzes new and existing partnerships, local solutions and co-investment through a whole-of-market approach across the projects areas of technical focus; and (e) fosters a culture of learning and adaptation.

Jalin’s Theory of Change is as follows:
If MNH evidence is available and compellingly communicated, and influential MultiStakeholder actors are engaged, then constructive and inclusive partnerships, solutions, and advocacy can flourish and these efforts can spur an MNH movement that contributes to reducing maternal and newborn mortality in Indonesia, specifically for the poorest and most vulnerable.
