Palladium Job Vacancy: Business Consultants To Support A Health Technology Start-Up Business HP+ Project, Jakarta

Led the Palladium, the Health Policy Plus (HP+) is a five-year project funded by the U.S. Agency for International Development (USAID) implemented by a consortium of partners

The project’s HIV activities are supported by the U.S. President’s Emergency Plan for AIDS Relief (PEPFAR). Globally, HP+ works to strengthen and advance health policy to improve the enabling environment for equitable and sustainable health services, supplies, and delivery systems in the areas of family planning and reproductive health, HIV, and maternal health.

In Indonesia, HP+ is generating critical data and evidence in close partnership with the government of Indonesia to be used by policymakers, civil society, and the private sector to improve maternal and newborn health, HIV, and health financing programs and outcomes. Health Policy Plus project (HP+) is supporting PPJK (Pusat Pembiayaan Kesehatan dan Jaminan Kesehatan, Kementerian Kesehatan RI) to develop the technical guideline to realize non-infrastructure PPPs for health. PPJK is also keen on ensuring that the policy development process mobilizes the support of the various government and private sector entities to implement this policy once in place. This includes testing potential PPP ideas and piloting them as model cases for other relevant stakeholders to learn from and to build confidence in this innovative financing model for health.

As strengthening private sector engagement in health is increasingly a government priority, it is important to ensure that innovative, private sector initiatives focused on this area can achieve sufficient scale and sustainability. While there are several incubators and accelerators focused on the Indonesian market, there are few focused on healthcare and digital health. USAID can support this gap by ensuring that innovative private health start-ups are identified, supported, and put on a path toward scale and sustainability.

HP+ will deploy local business consultants, as needed, to support expansion of the private sector portfolio, such as developing the business plan and financial projections, hiring specialized technical expertise to support the business team, provide necessary legal advice in registering, monitoring and evaluation, develop product positioning and marketing materials, and product launching.
