Abstract


Background: The Ministry of Health of Timor-Leste has realized
that they should work together with other stakeholders to
achieve their vision and mission due to insufficient human
resources and budget. Therefore, the Ministry of Health has
established collaboration with AusAid and other development
partners through mechanism of coordination. However, the
mechanism is not yet implemented fully.
Objective: To evaluate foreign aid policy in coordinating AusAid
donor and development partners to fund human resource development
program (in the HSSP-SP project) through the mechanism
of coordination in the Ministry of Health of Timor-Leste.
Method: This was a qualitative study with a case-study design.
The respondents were 16 people, consisting of 13 persons
from the Ministry of Health and 3 persons from AusAid,
World Bank and development partners.
Result and Discussion: The Department of Partnership Management
had not been optimum in managing and controlling the
project/program and activities of the donors and working partners.
The approved action plan and budget were relevant
with the proposal made by the Ministry of Health but planning
for human resource development was unclear and was not
based on the work force gap faced and priority in human
resource development. The project had impact on human resource
development but the process of staff re-placement
was not in line with the principle of the right man on the right
place. Regular consultative meeting could facilitate the approval
of action plan and budget for human resource development.
However, the mechanism of coordination was less effective
because there was no specific instrument or mechanism
to do alignment and harmonization and it only focused on
collective gain and there was too much pressure and demand
to staff from both the Ministry of Health and partners. Constraints
and challenges from political aspect and human resource
capacity had hampered the process of coordinating
AusAid and working partners.
Conclusion: The implementation of foreign aid policy to coordinate
AusAid and development partners to fund human resource
development (in HSSP-SP project) following the mechanism
of coordination in the Ministry of Health of Timor-Leste
had run well enough but still received lack of support from
human resource development planning based on institutional
development.
Keywords: policy evaluation, mechanism of coordination,
human resource development, donor agency
