Job: Business Strengthening Consultant - Banyan Global, Tanzania

Sustaining Health Outcomes through the Private Sector (SHOPS) Plus is a five-year global, USAID-funded Cooperative Agreement awarded to Abt Associates and partners in September 2015. The mandate of SHOPS Plus is to increase the role of the private sector in the sustainable provision and use of quality family planning (FP), human immunodeficiency virus (HIV)/ acquired immunodeficiency syndrome (AIDS), maternal and child health (MCH) and other health information, products, and services. The project seeks to harness the full potential of the private sector and catalyze public-private engagement to improve health outcomes. By increasing the participation and effectiveness of the private health sector, SHOPS Plus improves the equity and quality of the total health system.

For Tanzania’s rural and urban poor, Accredited Drug Dispensing Outlets (ADDOs) are often the entry point to the health system. Underserved populations in the Mwanza region depend on ADDOs for access to essential health commodities and services. While ADDOs play an important role in health service provision, the quality and financial sustainability of ADDOs vary widely. Numerous ADDOs struggle to accumulate sufficient working capital, particularly rural facilities that are challenged to replenish inventory during the rainy season. In order to address these challenges, the SHOPS Plus project is undertaking a business strengthening program focused on ADDOs in the Mwanza region.

Responsibilities

  • Participate in assessment activities designed to inform the business strengthening assistance program for ADDOs in the Mwanza region;
  • Provide assistance and support to Banyan Global home office personnel in the design/ adaptation of business training and coaching materials;
  • Participate in a training-of-trainers (TOT) on training content and participatory methodology (either remotely, in person, or both);
  • Deliver a series of trainings focused on business strengthening skills for ADDOs in the Mwanza region, and potentially in other regions as well;
  • Provide one-on-one business coaching for ADDOs in the Mwanza region and potentially in other regions as well;
