Palladium develops and delivers innovative, locally relevant, evidence-based solutions to improve the health and well-being of people around the world. Since 1971, we have assisted governmental and non-governmental agencies, foundations, and the private sector by designing, implementing, and evaluating programs in HIV/AIDS, sexual and reproductive health, population and family planning, maternal and child health, infectious diseases, and gender. Palladium has deep expertise in policy and advocacy, research and strategic information, health markets and private sector engagement, modeling and economic analysis, patient monitoring and management/HMIS, strategic consulting, and program management.

Project Profile
Palladium has recently been awarded a cooperative agreement to implement the USAID Health Informatics Governance and Data Analytics (HIGDA) in Kenya. The purpose of this activity is to support ongoing efforts to strengthen national and county-level health sector organizational and management capacity in health informatics, monitoring, evaluation, and learning.

The Palladium led HIGDA team includes PATH and Jomo Kenyatta University of Agriculture and Technology (JKUAT). Together we bring technical expertise, national and county-level relationships, and strong technical strategy to achieve HIGDA goals. We will collaborate with the Palladium led projects USAID HP+, USAID CMLAP and CDC KeHMIS, to use creative digital solutions and ICT and through implementing industry standards, to turn recent GIS investments into sustainable outcomes.

The project has two sub-purposes:

  1. Strengthened national governance for health informatics, monitoring, evaluations, learning and accountability systems
  2. Strengthened capacity of national and county Ministry of Health (MoH) on data analytics

A 28 person team will be recruited to work in Nairobi and 20 high burden counties to achieve the project results. Palladium is recruiting 23 staff, PATH is recruiting 2 staff and JKUAT is recruiting 3 staff. The team will be led by a Chief of Party also based in Nairobi. Palladium staff in Nairobi and our international offices will provide routine technical and administrative support and assistance.
