If you are searching for a career/employment opportunity, why not take your time and try out on this one? Here is another Job Opportunity In Thailand: Consultant – Advocacy and Training Materials: Pursuing the UHC Agenda Towards Equity through eHealth, Health Infrastructure and Unique IDs
Organization: UN Children's Fund
Closing date: 17 Oct 2015
The HIV/AIDS section, UNICEF East Asia and Pacific Regional Office (UNICEF EAPRO) is seeking an individual consultant to develop training and advocacy materials including video presentations to support nationals and regional eHealth capacity development, advocacy for policy and decision makers and support fundraising with prospective donors for the Asia eHealth Information Network (AeHIN) Open eLearning platform/repository and regional interoperability lab.
As governments actively move towards multi-sectoral approaches for achieving Universal Health Coverage (UHC) and strengthening health systems, advocacy and training is needed to promote greater country ownership for the post 2015 agenda and equity.
“National-scale shared Mobile Health Technology/Electronic Health (m/eHealth) infrastructure is a public good and is considered as being similar to other national infrastructure projects (e.g. water, sewage, electricity, etc.) Such m/eHealth infrastructure may be leveraged to improve population health, liberate trapped value in existing health Information and Communication Technology (ICT) silos, and support important UHC initiatives. To mitigate project investment risk and to stimulate public and private sector innovation in health ICT, it is recommended that a regional “interoperability lab” be established to bridge proprietary databases and separate information systems. The laboratory will provide expertise and services in four key areas: Training, Tooling, Teaming and Testing. Ultimately, the mandate of the lab will be to:
- Mitigate investment risk on national-scale m/eHealth infrastructure deployments; and
- Support capacity-building in health ICT; and
- Act as a catalyst for innovation by the public and private sector actors in national care delivery networks.” 15-06-04 MEHealth Lab Concept Note Draft 0.1 Derek Ritz,
