Purposes and Objectives
Over the last three years, UNICEF Tanzania has been supporting the Ministry of Health, Gender, Elderly and Children through the National AIDS Control Program (NACP) to improve VMMC services in the country. The support has been continuously for the past three years through upstream support to the NACP and the VMMC technical working group (TWG). To date, UNICEF’s technical support is understood as having contributed to improved program data analysis, coordination and the standardization of the national VMMC package and guidelines. This work was supported through a dedicated technical assistance staff who has completed the TA support to the government.
Going forward UNICEF would like to focus on a few strategic deliverables which remain to be achieved under the current donor and government agreements which necessitate the recruitment of a technical consultant to support the achievement of these deliverables.
The specific purpose and objectives of the consultancy assignment are as follows.
Methodology and technical approach
This assignment involves consulting and documentation of different sources of information including those related to UNICEF VMMC support to the Government through NACP. The consultant will conduct desk review of documents, consult with government, IPs and development partners and develop an inception report. For the specific assignment on documenting UNICEF VMMC supported activities to the national program, the information will rely on available secondary data from the VMMC supported activities to the NACP, technical working group meetings and at national level and beneficiaries where relevant. For the documentation of the VMMC pilot project in Dar Es Salaam, this assignment will involve site visits and observation of provision of services at site level and participation in the VMMC internal quality assurance process for gathering data. The consultant will be expected to convene some consultative meetings with VMMC officials at national level and any relevant officials from implementing partners. The consultant will also be required to have a thorough understanding of both the VMMC sustainability road map and the implementation manual. A consultative process will also be required when developing the monitoring score card for the implementation of the sustainability manual.
