March 30, 2020



Through the USAID-funded Health Technical Assistance Project (BANTU),
Palladium supports USAID Indonesia’s Country Development Cooperation
Strategy (CDCS) by rapidly leveraging specialized short- and long-term
technical assistance to USAID; USAID-funded programs; the Government of
Indonesia (GOI); and other organizations and agencies as required.

Seen as one of the foundations for economic growth and social cohesion,
Indonesia strives for the extension of social protection coverage to the
entire population.

Indonesia has introduced a three-pillar social security system, namely:
Social Assistance, Compulsory Savings and Social Health Insurance.

The Law on Health Social Security Providers (No. 24/2011), elaborating
the implementation of the National Social Security System, stipulated
universal health insurance to commence in 2014. As part the GOI’s social
health insurance program (JKN – Jaminan Kesehatan Nasional), the Social
Health Insurance Provider (BPJS Kesehatan) was launched on January 1,
2014. The goal is to reach Universal Health Coverage (UHC) by 2019.

Palladium is seeking a long-term Senior Health Financing (HF) Advisor,
to work closely with USAID/Indonesia’s Office of Health and be seconded
to the National Council for Social Protection in Indonesia (DJSN – Dewan
Jaminan Sosial Nasional), while working closely with the Ministry of
Finance, Ministry of Health, Social Health Insurance Provider
(BPJS-Kesehatan), Bappenas (Planning Ministry) and the Poverty Reduction
Unit (TNP2K).

While DJSN is tasked with overseeing the implementation of the larger
National Social Security System, the overarching aim of this assignment
is to assist in the generation of evidence to catalyze increased
domestic resource allocation for the health sector, while reducing out
of pocket payments and improving resource allocation for achieving
better population health outcomes.

The Adviser will serve as an expert resource to DJSN and as a Health
Financing Advisor to USAID. S/he will provide policy, strategic,
technical, analytical, and programmatic guidance to DJSN; other GOI
counterparts (as appropriate); USAID/Indonesia; and USAID’s Implementing
Partners (as appropriate). S/he will bring specialized health
financing, analytical and policy development skills and experience, to
be applied with a specific emphasis on ensuring financial protection for
the poorest and most vulnerable, while meeting the GOI’s stated goal of
achieving UHC by 2019.

The position is based in Jakarta, Indonesia, with some domestic travel.
