Options Consultancy Services Limited (Options) is a global team of experts and innovators tackling some of the world’s most pressing health challenges. We work with leaders and change makers around the globe to bring health strategies to life. We provide ideas, advice and technical know-how that enable our partners to build a path to lasting change.
With 30 years’ experience in global health, we collaborate with our partners to explore existing evidence, combine expertise, scale up ideas and co-create solutions that accelerate change. This includes collaborating on policy design, managing initiatives, building powerful coalitions and galvanizing social movements. Our impact is felt across whole communities, with a focus on women, girls and those who have been marginalized.
Gender equality and social change are at the forefront of our work. As part of MSI Reproductive Choices, all our profits go back into supporting MSI’s own mission of children by choice, not chance. We believe in a world where everyone can access the high-quality health services they need, without financial burden.
Options has worked in Nepal for over 25 years. During this time, our work has focused on enabling women and children to access the healthcare they need by overcoming financial, geographic, and social barriers and facilitating long term systems change. We have worked at all levels from national to district and palika, and through local communities, supporting the delivery of successive Nepal Health Sector Programs. Our portfolio focuses on strengthening the devolved health system, supporting government leadership and delivery of the Nepal Health Sector Support Programme (NHSSP) since 2010 – now in its third phase of Options led implementation.
Options is preparing to bid for the anticipated USAID-funded health systems strengthening (HSS) project in Nepal. The Activity will work to strengthen health system at municipality, provincial and federal level focused on maternal, newborn and child health to increase access and equity in health care.
The Chief of Party (COP) will be responsible for the overall strategic leadership, managerial oversight, and technical direction of the project. The COP will lead the implementation team and serve as the key point of contact for USAID, government, program partners, and other stakeholders. They will also coordinate closely with other USG projects and development partners to ensure joined up approaches and complementarity with other health and governance programs. The COP is accountable for high quality delivery of the program within the budget parameters. The post holder draws support from Options’ global management services. The role reports to Options’ Director of Global Health based in Options’ London office. Coordinating the inputs of the team from Options and partners, they will ensure that program objectives, outcomes, and deliverables are met and that financial, operational, and reporting requirements are in compliance with USAID regulations and Options’ policies and processes.
