ThinkWell is a health sector development organization with deep experience in designing, implementing, evaluating, and diffusing new solutions to persistent health system challenges. Using approaches rooted in analytics, we have supported health financing reforms in over 30 countries.
ThinkWell is implementing the Strategic Partnership for Primary Health Care (SP4PHC) project, a five-year program focused on improving how pooled government resources are used to pay for primary healthcare services – especially family planning (FP) and maternal, neonatal and child health (MNCH) in the context of pro-poor health financing schemes. The project is operating in six countries of which Burkina Faso is one.
The Senior Policy Advisor position, based in the General Secretariat of the Ministry of Health in Ouagadougou, will lead implementation of the SP4PHC program in Burkina. Our goal is to support government to more effectively purchase family planning (FP) and maternal, neonatal and child health (MNCH) services in partnership with both the Ministry of Health and the Caisse Nationale d’Assurance Maladie Universelle (CNAMU) and in alignment with the Global Financing Facility (GFF).
The successful candidate will have experience in providing high level technical advisory services to national governments and will have political skills to build and navigate partnerships. The candidate must be prepared to work independently, and as part of a small, distributed team.
Job Location: This is a full-time position based in the Ministry of Health, Ouagadougou, Burkina Faso.
Reports to: Joint Management between SP4PHC Director and MoH Counterpart (TBD)
