IFC promotes private sector investment in health by supporting projects that will have a positive impact on national health systems and will deliver value for money.
IFC supports the private sector’s role in increasing access to quality, affordable healthcare across three pillars : health services, life sciences, and medical technologies with a combination of investments, advisory, disruptive innovations, and upstream reforms.
Healthcare providers use hospital accreditation and external peer assessment processes to assess their level of performance and to implement ways to continuously improve.
and (ii) International healthcare accreditation. However, the existing assessment schemes have their limitations, which have constrained them from providing services to healthcare providers in countries without national accreditation or with a lower level of sophistication : (i) National accreditation schemes are only available, recognized and implemented in a limited number of countries, such as the US, UK, EU, Canada, Australia, Romania, Malaysia, Thailand, China, and India.
They also vary considerably in quality, size, and cost. (ii) International healthcare accreditation schemes are focused on full-service and international-standard hospitals with high level of sophistication.
The facilities requesting accreditation must pay substantial fees and devote significant amount of time and resources to prepare for and undergo the international accreditation process.
A key developmental target for IFC investments in the health sector is to promote the delivery of quality services built on sustainable business model platforms.
The IFC Healthcare Quality Assessment Tool is designed to provide a tailored assessment to healthcare providers who want to assess and improve their quality, but currently don’t have access to either national or international schemes, or need additional support to prepare for formal accreditation.
The tool is designed to be used to assist hospitals to complete on-site assessment of their quality care of care and safety of the hospital environment to identify how well they are meeting defined priority (or core ) standards.
IFC will also use core components of the assessment to evaluate entities it is considering for investment.
The Operations Officer for Health Quality will be responsible for delivering the health quality assessment and related advisory services with IFC clients in Africa as required for pre- and post-investment support, and for upstream client engagements for relevant cases.
The Operations Officer is also expected to contribute to IFC awareness and thought leadership activities in healthcare quality.
The core deliverables will be :
Povertyhas no borders, neither does excellence. We succeed because of our differencesand we continuously search for qualified individuals with diverse backgroundsfrom around the globe.
