Palladium seeks an experienced local Afghan Private Health Sector Development Advisor (PHSDA) for USAID funded Afghanistan Helping Mothers and Children Thrive (HEMAYAT) project. The project objective is to increase utilization of high quality Family Planning and Maternal, Newborn and Child Health (FP/MNCH) services through culturally-appropriate and cost-effective interventions to strengthen and enhance existing primary care services provided through the Ministry of Public Health’s (MoPH) Basic Package of Health Services (BPHS) and the private sector. The HEMAYAT project will also strengthen referral systems to Essential Package of Hospital Services (EPHS) at the provincial level towards improving the continuum of care, especially for vulnerable populations. The project will provide technical leadership on FP/MNCH issues in Afghanistan by serving as a platform for increasing learning and knowledge sharing between a wide range of partners. The project will also increase the availability and quality of BPHS and private sector services and institutionalize evidence-based interventions into the health system
