Chemonics seeks a health workforce development specialist for Human Resources for Health 2030 (HRH2030). HRH2030 supports USAID/Washington and field missions in strengthening human resources for health to increase the accessibility, availability, acceptability, and quality of the health workforce needed to improve health outcomes and advance universal health coverage. HRH2030 is designed to 1) increase the performance and productivity of the health workforce; 2) increase the number, skill mix, and competency of the health workforce; 3) strengthen human resources for health and health systems strengthening leadership and governance capacity; and 4) increase the sustainability of investment in the health workforce. HRH2030 is implemented by Chemonics International. At the global level, consortium partners include Palladium, the University Research Company, ThinkWell, American International Health Alliance, Amref Health Africa, and Open Development. HRH2030 is in the process of beginning program activities in the Philippines. In support of the Philippines Department of Health’s (DOH’s) goal for human resources for health — that is, an “Adequate number of health human resources at all levels with competence to deliver universal health care through the continuum of preventive, promotive, curative and rehabilitative health interventions” — HRH2030/Philippines will support to the DOH to strengthen the deployment, training, and management of a fit-for-purpose and practice health workforce to improve access to quality family planning, maternal and child health, and tuberculosis services for vulnerable populations. This goal will be realized by achieving three main objectives: improving skill sets, competency, and distribution of the health workforce at the primary level; strengthening human resources for health leadership, governance, and performance management; and improving the use of data for human resources for health decision-making at central and regional levels. This position is based in Manila, Philippines. We are looking for individuals who have a passion for making a difference in the lives of others around the world.
