About UN Careers-Project Clerk for HEART
According to the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development, the United Nations Development Programme (UNDP) is the UN’s global development network. It promotes change and links nations with information, expertise, and resources to assist people in creating better lives. In order to empower people and create resilient countries, we are present in more than 170 countries and territories, working with local governments and citizens to find their own answers to international and domestic development concerns. The unfinished business of the Millennium Development Goals is addressed in the UNDP Indonesia Country Programme 2021–2025, which was developed in collaboration with the Indonesian Government. It also supports national efforts to promote the 2030 Sustainable Development Agenda.
The portfolio of UNDP Indonesia deals with supply chain management and health procurement for MoH priority programs like AIDS, Tuberculosis, Malaria (ATM), and immunization. The procurement process was managed by UNDP Indonesia, which also made recommendations to the government and funders on how to improve procurement management. In meetings for input on the Global Fund Program’s ATM supply chain and procurement issues, UNDP also participates.
During the Covid-19 pandemic, there are delays in the production and supply of HIV medications as well as a reduction in the money allotted for HIV to support the Covid-19 response. The HIV program’s implementation to increase ARV treatment was impacted by this circumstance. Under the GF grant period from 2018 to 2020, efforts have been undertaken to launch a modest PrEP trial program. Yet, political and policy obstacles have made implementation difficult. According to WHO recommendations, TLD will gradually replace other ART drugs as the first-line treatment of choice for newly diagnosed patients, starting in DKI Jakarta in late 2020, then spreading to the provinces on the islands of Java and Bali, and finally reaching all provinces by the end of 2021.
MOH has agreed to increase MMD as part of the subsequent Global Fund grant for 2021–2023. The goal has been set for MMD coverage to rise from 30% in 2021 to 40% in 2022 and 60% in 2023. For MMD, there isn’t an official policy, though. 2020 saw the implementation of a review of HIV procurement and supply chain management, and UNDP will follow up by continuing to offer technical support to MoH to enhance these processes, particularly during the COVID-19 pandemic.
By implementing policy advocacy actions in the nation’s decentralized health system, UNDP will collaborate with WHO and UNAIDS, the Ministry of Health, and other relevant government organizations on the preparation of PrEP, the transition to TLD, and the adoption of MMD policy.
The Indonesian government will get considerable support from UNDP as part of the global Covid-19 response in order to improve supply chain management and national procurement. Our assistance includes supply chain management technical assistance, emergency response, and procurement of health supplies, particularly for HIV/AIDS.
In order to achieve this, the Project Clerk will support the UNDP Health Governance Project, work under the technical direction of the Health Governance Cluster Project Manager, and engage with teams from the Democratic Governance and Poverty Reduction Cluster (DGPRU).
