  • The U.S. Agency for International Development (USAID) launched the new Health Finance and Governance (HFG) Project to increase the use of priority health services by strengthening health finance and governance systems in low- and middle-income countries. The HFG team, led by Abt Associates, brings significant experience working with Ministries of Health and partners at all levels of the health system to build country capacity to expand access to health care, particularly to HIV/AIDS, tuberculosis, malaria, and reproductive health services.

    To increase the use of health services and improve health outcomes, countries need strong health systems that are well-managed and country-financed. HFG, a five year (2013-2017) project, will support country partners to implement innovative and catalytic activities that advance their health system priorities.

    Abt Associates therefore seeks a qualified candidate to support the general operations of the HFG Nigeria team in Abuja.
