Consultant - Coordinate a Household Health Expenditure Survey - Abia, Ebonyi,Osun

Health Policy Plus (HP+) is a USAID-funded five-year project awarded on August 28, 2015. HP+ has a mandate across global, country, and subnational levels to strengthen and advance health policy priorities in family planning and reproductive health (FP/RH), HIV, and maternal health. It aims to improve the enabling environment for equitable and sustainable health services, supplies, and delivery systems through policy development and implementation, with an emphasis on voluntary, rights-based health programs, and by strengthening in-country partners' capacity to navigate complex environments for effective policy design, implementation, and financing aligned to their priorities.

In Nigeria, HP+ is working with the Federal Ministry of Health and the State Ministries of Health of Abia, Ebonyi and Osun states to conduct a Household Health Expenditure Survey (HHES) for the above-mentioned states. The survey will provide estimates of household expenditures on health (types of goods and services; providers; household income level) that will be critical to inform policy decisions to improve access to quality health services, particularly to support evidence-based heath financing and social protection reforms being undertaken by the states.


Study Scope
The objectives of the Household Health Expenditure Study are to:

  • To determine the incidence and nature of expenditure on health incurred by households with a view to estimating the amounts of "out of pocket" (OOP) payments for health.
  • To determine the amount households are willing to pay for health insurance premiums.

The following are supporting objectives:

  • To understand the patterns of healthcare utilization of households in the three focus states.
  • To determine the incidence of catastrophic health spending amongst households.
  • To determine the knowledge and attitude of households towards health insurance.
  • Estimate the Willingness to Pay for health insurance across different socioeconomic groups.
  • To achieve the study objectives outlined above, Palladium, through the HP+ Project, is seeking a Survey Manager to support the implementation and management of the HHES.
  • The successful candidate will be engaged to complete the components of the HHES as described above and will work collaboratively with HP+, the Federal Ministry of Health and the State Ministries of Health involved in the study to achieve the study objectives
