Staffing of the Project Execution Unit Enhancing Health Services Delivery Project

The Ministry of Health & Wellness will be implementing the Enhancing Health Services Delivery Project, designed to improve access to services provided at public health facilities.  This initiative reaffirms the Government of Jamaica’s commitment to the abolition of user fees in public health facilities and builds on previous efforts to reduce wait times for services and will result in shorter wait times for admissions as well as shorter hospital stays.  The project will be implemented under three components: (i) Diagnostic Radiology services (ii) Elective surgeries (iii) removal of social cases from hospitals

The services of the following Consultants will be required to provide technical and administrative support to the Ministry of Health & Wellness in the coordination of this project.  Responsibilities will involve working closely with the Technical Programme Advisor, the Project Manager, the Regional Health Authorities (RHAs), private service providers and international development partners to determine and implement appropriate arrangements for the short term outsourcing and subsequent reintegration of those services that are the primary focus of the project.
