About Futures Group Global Outreach

Futures Group Global Outreach is implementing the Health Sector Resiliency Project (HSR), a five year contract funded by USAID. The overall goal of HSR is to support the Government of the Islamic Republic of Afghanistan (GIRoA) to foster a strengthened, reformed, and increasingly self-reliant Afghan health system prepared for the decreased donor support anticipated over the coming decade. The HSR Project acts as a resource and a catalyst to the MoPH and other GIRoA entities as it considers and implements critical sector-wide reforms that are required to make the system more resilient and sustainable. The project primarily focuses on governance, health finance and human resources for health and engages both the public and private components of the health sector.

Hospital services are currently provided free of cost in Afghanistan, which results in low quality delivery of health services. Therefore, it is necessary that the Ministry of Public Health and relevant stakeholders take action to solve the issue of low quality and the lack of financial resources by applying user fees. To overcome the challenges in user fees application the Ministry of Public Health worked on a legal solution and developed a user fees regulation which is recently approved by the cabinet of Islamic Republic of Afghanistan. The cabinet has also approved the authority to hospitals for managing their procurement, financial and human resources activities.

Job Summary

For proper management of user fees and effective financial management the Hospital Finance Expert will work closely with relevant hospitals’ finance team to better implement the daily financial activities and build the capacity of hospital finance staff to independently perform all hospital financial activities in compliance with government financial rules and regulations.
The Hospital Finance Expert reports directly to Hospital Reform Advisor.
