MEASURE Evaluation works in collaboration with other countries to strengthen their health information systems (HIS) to generate high quality data that used for decision-making. It is a cooperative agreement, leader with associate award, project funded by the United States Agency for International Development (USAID). The University of North Carolina (UNC) is prime recipient of the award, and there are five partner agencies: ICF International (ICF); John Snow, Inc. (JSI); Management Sciences for Health (MSH); Palladium Group (PG); and Tulane University (TU).

Background

Under the USAID-sponsored MEASURE Evaluation project, Palladium developed the Reproductive Health Cost Reporting System (RHCRS.) The RHCRS is a management tool that can help health service delivery organizations to capture and analyze existing financial and other data on a regular basis. It is designed to treat financial, commodity, labor and other cost data as inputs to a system that allows service delivery organizations to estimate what it costs to deliver specific health services, what the cost drivers are and how these costs may differ across service delivery points, across regions and over time.
Palladium is piloting the system in one or two to-be-selected non-governmental health service organizations in Abuja, Nigeria. A consultant is being recruited to assist with the pilot. This will be a short-term consultant who will report to the Technical Lead based in North Carolina, USA. All applicants must be based in Abuja, Nigeria.
