Job Description

Opportunity:

The Local Health System Sustainability Project (LHSS) under the USAID Integrated Health Systems IDIQ helps low- and middle-income countries transition to sustainable, self-financed health systems to support access to universal health coverage. The project works with partner countries and local stakeholders to reduce financial barriers to care and treatment, ensure equitable access to essential health services for all people, and improve the quality of health services.

Continuing professional development (CPD) is an essential approach for health care providers (HCPs) to improve relevant competencies and is required for continuous quality improvement of health practices for better health services. Jordan developed and published the Health Professional License Renewal Bylaw Number 46 in the Official Gazette in April 2018 and issued instructions in September 2021 for all licensed HCPs in Jordan (approximately 155,000) to complete a required number of CPD hours every five years to renew their practice licenses. Article 5 of the Instructions stipulates that an HCP must submit their application for re-licensure three months minimum before the end of their license period of performance in January 2023.

USAID’s Continuing Professional Development Program (CPDP) is a USAID government to government agreement that supports the Government of Jordan’s (GOJ) efforts to improve health care professionals’ (HCPs) competencies to deliver quality health services through the institutionalization of a mandatory continuing professional development system (CPD) for professional license renewal. CPDP will assist the Ministry and other stakeholders to activate the Bylaws and the CPD Instructions.

LHSS seeks a qualified Advocacy and Communication Advisor to support the MOH in implementing the CPDP communication component and supporting the Activity communication activities.
