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.
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 enrollment 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 digitization through the development and building of IT infrastructure/digital platforms, designing and implementation of alternative distribution strategies and change management.
