ResultsinHealth (RiH) is an international advisory agency, specializing in
public health and development. It offers services to governments,
non-governmental organizations, bilateral and international organizations,
and financing agencies. RiH has a passion for the development and delivery
of effective health care to disadvantaged populations, for the design of
effective technical interventions, and for actively fighting the major human
epidemics. A major component of RiH´s portfolio is its responsibility for
procurement and supply management (PSM) systems in almost 70 countries,
through a collaborative agreement with one of the largest Local Fund Agents
of the Global Fund to Fight AIDS, Tuberculosis and Malaria. Products
procured under Global Fund grants generally include medicines, diagnostics,
lab materials, medical equipment, and preventive materials such as
long-lasting insecticide treated nets and condoms. RiH wishes to contact
experts who can assist in the assessment and monitoring of systems to
procure and manage those health products. Services relate to the full cycle
of selection, quantification, procurement, quality assurance, storage,
distribution, inventory management, management information systems, and
rational use of commodities.

Experts will assess and monitor PSM systems, with the aim of ensuring best
practice and risk minimization for the Global Fund. Work carried out will
allow the Global Fund to provide feedback to Principle Recipients and direct
them to appropriate systems strengthening efforts. Experts will work under
the supervision of RiH's senior PSM experts. Activities may involve onsite
PSM assessment visits, or desk reviews of planning documentation. Requests
often come at short notice, and responses must be swift. Missions typically
require 1-2 weeks onsite activities, with rapid reporting thereafter. 

Successful candidates have a university degree in pharmacy, health or a
related area, and several years of experience in international procurement
and supply chain management of health commodities. Hands-on experience is a
non-negotiable requirement. Training in pharmaceutical procurement,
international tendering, pharmaceutical supply chain management and/or
project management are desirable, as is experience in the management and
implementation of HIV/AIDS, Malaria and/or Tuberculosis control programmes
in developing countries.

ResultsinHealth experts have a strong commitment to health and development,
and a special interest in issues related to public health. They have an open
mindset, flexible attitudes, and an entrepreneurial approach. Strong
interpersonal skills are indispensable, as are strong self-management skills
and an ability to deliver in a timely fashion. They express themselves
clearly and concisely, especially in written form.

Excellent verbal and written knowledge of English is a key requirement. All
reports will have to be written in the English language. Additional language
skills (especially French, Russian, Spanish, Portuguese and Arabic) are very

RiH support:
RiH works with a system of peer-review and discussion within the wider RiH
team, and senior PSM experts coach more junior colleagues to strengthen
their skills and experience. Deliverables are also reviewed to ensure
consistency with internationally accepted good practice, regulations and
requirements. Given the strong academic approach of the RiH team,
significant emphasis is placed on the promotion of objectively verifiable
data and reference sources.
