The success candidate will be offered Consultancy Contract. Applications from qualified female candidates are encouraged.


 

  1. Background

As part of IOM’s support and cooperation to the Government of Indonesia in the handling of refugees, Migration Health Division (MHD) of IOM Indonesia, provides basic and life-saving healthcare services for refugees under the RCA Programme (Regional Coordination Agreement). For over 10 years, refugees have been able to access health services through community clinics (Puskesmas) or private clinics in their city with the support of the local health department. While this system effectively manages majority of medical cases, for more advanced and chronic care, MHD staff based in field offices continued to facilitate access to secondary and tertiary healthcare services such as specialist outpatient consultations, emergency, and hospitalization via a referral mechanism.

Given the protracted stay of refugees in Indonesia due to limited resettlement options and small number opting to voluntarily return to their home countries of origin, IOM anticipates a need to explore an alternative system for health services that still fulfils the following health objectives: Enable equal and quality access for refugees to a healthcare service at all levels while minimizing the disparity with local hosting communities; Foster self-reliance and reduce dependency on IOM health team within the refugee community; Improve efficiency in the administration and financing health services delivery while freeing up staff time for human centered programming; Minimize time that staff spent on the approval referrals, collection, and verification of treatment invoices; prevent delay in closing accounts due to late arrival of invoices; and free up time for medical staff to effectively monitor the quality of healthcare service providers, preventing over-treatment and over charging.

 

For reasons above, since 16 March 2021, IOM has piloted a one-year programme of health care service delivery model using health insurance system in Makassar, Tanjung Pinang and Batam.  However, for comprehensive analysis, relevant data from all parties involved such as IOM, health insurance service providers, healthcare service providers and refugees as beneficiaries are required to explore and identify efficiencies and effectiveness of the program.

 

Therefore, evaluation from external/independent consultant is needed as reference to determine extension plan of this program and scaling up to other locations.
