Integrated Health Projects Administration Unit (IHPAU) 

Closing date: Monday, 18 July 2016 (23:59 SL time)

The Ministry of Health and Sanitation (MOHS) works with development partners, implementers and various Government Departments to deliver health care services to the Sierra Leonean Population. In 2013, MOHS established an Integrated Health Projects Administration Unit (IHPAU) in the office of the Permanent Secretary. IHPAU intends to integrate all donor-funded projects to be centrally managed by one coherent unit that is integrated within the MOHS structure. This approach will reduce project management-related transaction costs for the MOHS; ensure better alignment of donor-funded projects with country priorities including the use of national systems to support implementation.  Typical donors to the MOHS include the World Bank, GAVI Alliance, the Global Fund, Africa Development Bank, UKAid, the EU and others. As an integral structure of the MOHS, IHPAU is responsible for ensuring strong financial management, encouraging integration of programmes, facilitating timely procurement of pharmaceutical and other supplies, and efficient monitoring of project implementation. MOHS is seeking an exceptional candidate to fill the following senior leadership role within IHPAU.

Postgraduate Medical Training & University Teaching Hospitals

The Ministry of Health and Sanitation (MoHS) of the Government of the Republic of Sierra Leone has the overall responsibility of providing leadership and coordination of health services in the country. In fulfilling that mandate, the MoHS constantly develop policies and implements programmes and interventions aimed at providing safe healthcare services to patients at an affordable cost and in the most efficient manner.

Consistent with the above, the government of Sierra Leone established the College of Medicine and Allied Health Sciences (COMAHS) in 1989 to train medical practitioners who will provide safe and high quality healthcare services to the people of Sierra Leone. To date, it remains the only Medical School in the country. While the institution has been indispensable in the overall delivery of healthcare in the country, it has never attained the status of training specialized medical doctors and currently, all doctors trained at COMAHS have to seek specialized training from other countries in the sub-region or elsewhere. The practice of sending doctors for specialized training in other countries is both expensive and does not always produce the desired number of specialists since many doctors fail to return home after completion of training. Consequently, the number of specialists in the country has constantly remained low and therefore inadequate to meet the needs of the country.

This unfortunate situation was exacerbated by the outbreak of the Ebola virus disease when many doctors died within a short period of time, leaving an already understaffed health system struggling to cope during an emergency of global proportions. To address this situation the Government of Sierra Leone through the Ministry of Health and Sanitation is embarking on establishing a local Post Graduate Medical Training Programme as one of its flagship programmes to increase the supply of specialist doctors in the country.  This will be established by the enactment of the Teaching Hospital Complex Administration Act 2016 and the Sierra Leone Council of Postgraduate Colleges of Health Specialist Act 2016.

MOHS is seeking to fill the following positions for the Postgraduate Medical Training and University Teaching Hospitals, to be located at the various hospitals in Freetown
