  • Sichuan Neonatal Health Program Evaluator

    Sheung Wan, Islands District, China Children's Medical Foundation

    Position Title: Sichuan Neonatal Health Program Evaluator

    Reporting To: Program Director & Executive Director

    Commitment: Full Time, 8 weeks beginning Jun 28th, 2016

    Location: Hong Kong and China

    Celebrating its 20th anniversary, Children's Medical Foundation (CMF) is a Hong Kong registered charity that funds sustainable programs in child health. With an extensive network of 29 hospital partners across China, treating one baby every hour, CMF expands lifesaving healthcare initiatives for newborn babies in poor, rural China. Please visit www.cmf.org.hk.

    Background: In 2010, Children's Medical Foundation began implementation of the Comprehensive Neonatal Health Project (CNHP), a sustainable program aimed to raise the overall capacity of neonatal care in rural China, thereby lowering the Neonatal Mortality Rate (NMR).

    The four components of CNHP include:

    1. Neonatal Care Unit (NCU) – Through partnership with state-owned hospitals, we were able to introduce a new training and equipment model to key hospitals in less developed regions.
    2. Neonatal Resuscitation Program (NRP) - Doctors and nurses from lower level medical facilities are trained in crucial skills to save babies born with asphyxia or who require urgent care.
    3. Mobile Emergency Response Unit (MERU) - A critical link between lower level medical facilities and CMF Neonatal Care Units, babies are safely transported in a customized ambulance with appropriate neonatal life support equipment to receive intensive care.
    4. Save-A-Baby Fund (SAB) - Financial assistance is provided to families living below the poverty line to cover intensive care treatment costs for their critically-ill newborns.

    Intended as a pilot, implementation was targeted to Guizhou, Sichuan and Yunnan provinces. If proven successful, CMF could collaborate with a larger organization to implement the model across China.

    Objectives: To evaluate the impact of the CNHP in 4 locations in Sichuan province, with a focus on measuring identified KPIs related to Outcome, Accessibility, Sustainability and Cost-Effectiveness.

    Output: 1) A 30-page report with 5-page executive summary, 2) A Powerpoint presentation on evaluation methodology and findings, 3) Data and recordings to be delivered in an organized manner.

    Compensation: USD4,000. In addition, cost of travel to/from HK and to/from China, and accommodation and food during the evaluation period in Sichuan is included. The Evaluator is responsible for additional accommodation and other personal expenses incurred.

    Requirements

    • Trained in health or medical project management and/or experience developing health programs
    • Graduate degree holder preferred; those in ongoing studies in area of public health welcome
    • Excellent verbal and written communicator in English and Putonghua
    • The evaluator is expected to work collaboratively with a team to conduct the evaluation. The team, which includes a China counterpart, neonatal expert, Program Director, two Program officers and an intern will help collect data, conduct interviews, survey materials and collate information for analysis. Coordinating of logistics with stakeholders is underway.

    Interested parties should please send cover letter and CV to bia@cmf.org.hk with Subject heading: "First Name, Last Name, Sichuan Program Evaluator" by June 17.
