Organization Description:
Palladium is a global leader in the design, development and delivery of Positive Impact - the intentional creation of enduring social and economic value. We work with foundations, investors, governments, corporations, communities and civil society to formulate strategies and implement solutions that generate lasting social, environmental and financial benefits.

For the past 50 years, we have been making Positive Impact possible. With a team of more than 2,500 employees operating in 90 plus countries and a global network of more than 35,000 technical experts, Palladium has improved - and is committed to continuing to improve - economies, societies and most importantly, people’s lives.

Palladium is a child-safe organisation, and screens applicants for suitability to work with children. We also provide equal employment to all participants and employees without regard to race, color, religion, gender, age, disability, sexual orientation, veteran or marital status. Palladium develops and delivers solutions that create positive impact for communities, businesses, societies and economies. We transform lives and create enduring value by working with governments, corporations and non-profit organisations. We create positive impact through more than 100 current projects with more than 2000 employees operating in over 90 countries.

Palladium implements the USAID-funded Health Policy Plus (HP+) Project. HP+ works with key stakeholders to advance health policy and financing for family planning and reproductive health (FP/RH), HIV, and maternal and newborn health at national and subnational levels. The project aims to improve the enabling environment for equitable and sustainable health services, supplies, and delivery systems through policy development and implementation, with an emphasis on voluntary, rights-based health programs, and by strengthening in-country partners’ capacity to navigate complex environments for effective policy design, implementation, and financing aligned to the existing priorities.

Assignment Overview
The Government of Indonesia (GOI) and partners would like to understand the impact of the Jaminan Kesehatan Nasional (JKN) on various social issues. The HP+ project is collaborating with several partners to provide technical assistance to the GOI for related analyses over 2016-17.

One component of this analysis is to assess changes in the health market caused by the introduction of JKN. Notably, GOI and its partners seek to understand the shifts in the operation, finances, business models, and strategies among private health providers and related networks, pharmaceutical companies, and health diagnostics providers to respond to the market opportunities and incentives created by JKN.

Data collection will take two forms: (1) HP+ plans to conduct key informant interviews with individuals in leadership positions among large hospital and clinic networks and companies, focusing first on those headquartered in Jakarta and surrounding areas, and later expanding to those with headquarters elsewhere. The purpose of these interviews will be to gain insight from the leaders of the healthcare industry on the perceived incentives and disincentives of JKN, and how their business and the sector as a whole has changed pre- and post-JKN.

(2) HP+ plans to conduct a multi-province facility-level provider survey to gather quantitative data on changes to service delivery volume, types of services offered, human resource, infrastructure, and the finances in response to JKN. The overarching scope, data collection approach, process, and results will be guided by a consultation group of private health sector champions. A detailed scope will be provided to the successful candidate, but in general the analysis will focus on health market dynamics in service provision, pharmaceutical production and retail, as well as diagnostics, pre- and post-JKN, especially as it relates to evolving business strategies and approaches to reach the lower income segments of the population.

HP+ seeks a qualified, experienced consultant to assist in the private health sector market analysis. The consultant will work with the HP+ Private Sector Technical Lead to conduct the key informant interviews of business leaders. S/he will also facilitate the roll-out of the facility-level provider surveys by engaging appropriate umbrella organizations to secure approval for collecting data at the facility level. As necessary, the consultant will liaise with the consultation group to validate the data collection approach, process, and results.

The consultant will work closely with HP+ staff in-country and remotely. Only Indonesian nationals or those authorized to work in Indonesia will be considered. S/he must be based in Jakarta.
