GAVI Job Overview

The Immunisation Financing and Sustainability (IF&S) team provides technical expertise to countries, in collaboration with other Gavi secretariat units, especially the Country Support unit whose Senior Country Managers (SCM) manage the grants.  The IF&S team brings strong technical expertise in public and health financing, health systems, aid effectiveness and policy dialogue, financial management and accountability. A priority issue for Gavi-supported countries is to sustain their immunisations services and programs once Gavi phases out its financial support over a period of 5 years (accelerated transition phase) during which countries are expected to move from co-financing to full financing of vaccines.

The Programme Officer (PO) has a key role in the IF&S team in calculating countries’ co-financing requirements and monitoring and reporting country performance. Also the PO will provide immunisation financing trends and performance and support analytical work. The PO will work closely with the Director, Head and Senior Managers in the unit as well as Gavi’s Senior Country Managers (SCM) and Alliance partners, particularly UNICEF Supply Division, to coordinate the implementation of Gavi’s co-financing policy and support countries to ensure sustainable financing for immunisation. The PO will master Gavi’s co-financing, eligibility and transition policies in order to provide substantive support and analysis and proactively engage with other Gavi teams and partners.

Main Duties & Responsibilities

Within the above context, reporting directly to the Director, Immunisation Financing and Sustainability, the PO will work in close liaison with the CP teams, other Gavi departments, and the Alliance partners, the main duties being:

  • Oversee the calculation of countries’ co-financing requirements;
  • Lead interactions with UNICEF Supply Division to monitor country co-financing payments and procurement of vaccines and provide regular progress reports for internal and external platforms as needed;
  • Analyse immunisation and health financing data and information on Gavi countries – prepare co-financing forecasts, immunisation costing and financing projections, fiscal space analyses, GNI projections, and other data analyses as required;
  • Manage integration of the co-financing, eligibility and transition policies into Gavi processes and systems, such as related to the country portal, decision letters, internal databases, participation in the Forecast Group, guidelines, and other processes as required;
  • Advise Gavi’s SCMs on the co-financing policy, ensure timely communication on co-financing requirements, progress, and default status, and implement and monitor payment plans;
  • Support the drafting of key documents on co-financing and financial sustainability, including updates to the Board and Programme & Policy Committee of the Board;
  • Provide substantive support and analysis for relevant countries on implications of Gavi’s co-financing policy and support, prepare country fact sheets, and updates on co-financing activities for country, regional and global level;
  • Provide analyses and input for policy and programme development work as required;
  • Review and provide inputs for Joint Appraisals on co-financing/immunisation financing issues;
  • Participate in country missions as required;
  • Participate in other functional roles as and when required.
