Advise Policy Formulation
PHOA serves as bridge between its members and the policy makers including with key government bodies such as FMOH (FMHACA) and FMOE (HERQA). Key activities under this initiative include:
- Developing and enforcing the implementation of Scope of Practices (SoP) for Health Officers: PHOA worked with FMHACA to developed SoP for Health Officers. PHOA will continue to work with FMHACA and the technical working group to ensure the SoP of health officers met the expectations of its members.
- Task Analysis for Health Officers: PHOA started working with USAID’s Human Resource for Health (HRH) project which is implemented by Jhpiego to do task analysis for health officers. So far PHOA had meeting with Jhpiego and reviewed the plan to implement the task analysis exercise; gathered important documents to pull from the list of tasks that are being performed by health officers; and identified roles of PHOA, Jhpiego and FMOH in the activity. PHOA along with Jhpiego and FMOH will continue to work on finalizing the task analysis for health officers.
