Fellowship opportunity with Equity Insurance Agency in Nairobi, Kenya
 
Micro, small and medium enterprises (MSMEs) face many risks that increase their vulnerability and affect their ability to produce. Insurance is an effective risk management solution for MSMEs to manage these risks. The Facility will partner with Equity Insurance Agency in Kenya to provide effective insurance solutions for the MSME clients of Equity Bank. The project includes client segmentation, bundling, and delivery through bank branches and alternative delivery channels such as agents and digital platforms. The fellow will be responsible for supporting this project and also working through a change management process to position EIA to more effectively serve the MSME segment in the future.  See the terms of reference for more details about this position. 
 
Two fellowship opportunities in the public health sector in East and West Africa
 
Ensuring equitable progress towards Universal Health Coverage (UHC) is a top priority for developing countries and donors alike. Yet, progress is not equal across all segments of society. The Facility is working with various national health insurance schemes in East and West Africa to implement digital solutions to improve enrolment and renewal processes thereby improving health systems to achieve Universal Health Coverage. The projects will focus on: market segmentation in relation to optimal Pubic Private Partnerships (PPPs), the application of FinTech to health insurance specifically targeted to the informal sector, process digitisation through the development and building of IT infrastructure/digital platforms, designing and implementation of alternative distribution strategies and change management. See the terms of reference for the public health sector projects for more details about this position.

The deadline for applications to the fellowship positions is 10 August 2016 (midnight CEST). Click here to apply now. More information about the Fellowship Programme can be found by clicking here.
