Examination of teenage pregnancy in World Vision Ireland’s PGII and HPP Programmes
Organization: World Vision Closing date: 19 May 2021 Terms of Reference (ToR) World Vision Ireland was established as a registered Irish charity in 1983. World Vision Ireland’s primary objective is to support our field operations, both in terms of our core long-term development programmes and humanitarian & emergency relief. We do this by raising private, institutional and Governmental funds, by informing the Irish public about humanitarian issues as witnessed first-hand by World Vision in the field, and by influencing Irish Governmental policy in the areas of long-term development and emergency relief. World Vision Ireland is a member of the World Vision International partnership, which is both the largest emergency relief and Child Sponsorship agency in the world. Background World Vision Ireland is one of Irish Aid’s six key partners for the implementation of Irish Aid’s Programme Grant (PG) II cycle (2017- 2022) and Humanitarian Programme Plan (HPP) (2019 - 2022). World Vision Ireland’s Programme Grant (PG) II is called Access: Infant and Maternal Health Plus (AIM Health Plus). AIM Health Plus is a maternal and child health programme being implemented in Uganda, Tanzania, Sierra Leone, and Mauritania. The goal of AIM Health Plus is to reduce neonatal and under-five mortality rates by 20% and maternal mortality ratios by 15% in each of the Programme sites between 2017 and 2021. To achieve this goal, AIM Health Plus focuses on five outcomes:1) Children and their mothers are well nourished 2) Children are protected from illness and are managed appropriately when ill 3) Children and their caregivers' access and utilise essential maternal and newborn care (MNC) services 4) Health Governance and partnerships strengthened at micro, meso and macro levels 5) MNCH outcomes accelerated and amplified through the use of digital technology. HPP is a protection and education programme being implemented in Somalia, South Sudan, Sudan and Syria. The three common objectives are: 1) Displaced children aged 3-6 are protected and provided with educational and psychosocial support 2)Improved access to quality primary and life skill education for girls and boys in target community (IDP and host communities in Sudan and South Sudan; children in fragile contexts in Somalia) 3) Increased protection against GBV for women and girls and access to empowerment opportunities. All programmes share these objectives except for the intervention in Syria which does not include the education component (objective two). Sub-Saharan Africa has the highest regional rate of adolescent pregnancy in the world. In 2018, the estimated global adolescent birth rate was 42 births per 1,000 girls aged 15 to 19. In sub-Saharan Africa, the regional adolescent birth rate is more than double the global average, with 101 births per 1,000 girls aged 15 to 19. The implications of teenage pregnancy are multiple. Pregnancy is both a barrier to girls’ continued education as well as a consequence of dropping out given its association with child marriage. Teenage pregnancy also carries extremely high health risks. Worldwide, complications related to early pregnancy and childbirth are the number one cause of death for girls aged 15 to 19 years. In both of World Vision Ireland’s PGII and HPP programmes, rising rates of adolescent pregnancy has been identified as a challenge. However, while the programmes address the issue, neither programme was designed to directly address teenage pregnancy. COVID-19 is further increasing the chances that adolescent girls will be exposed to different forms of gender-based violence and the risk of pregnancy. World Vision Ireland seeks to understand the drivers of teenage pregnancy in it’s eight programme countries. It further seeks to examine the nuanced responses taking place within its current programmes, and more widely, and how this can inform future World Vision programming. Scope of Work This piece of work aims to outline the drivers of teenage pregnancy in the context of World Vision Ireland’s programmes. It further seeks to examine the responses taking place within World Vision Ireland’s current programmes, within the World Vision International programmes and by peer agencies. Based on this, recommendations can be made to inform World Vision Ireland’s future programming. While the approach to this examination is open to the consultant, it is expected to include: • An extensive literature review and analyses of background information on teenage pregnancy, evidence, approaches, and learning. • Key Informant interviews with relevant programme staff, World Vision International staff, peer agency staff. • Key Informant Interviews with government officials • Key Informant Interviews/FGDs with beneficiaries and community groups Due to COVID-19 restrictions and limitations on travel to and within programme countries, a remote approach is preferred. Outputs The expected outputs are: • A research approach and action plan outlining timeline and key deliverables • Preliminary findings shared with World Vision Ireland • A final report that sets out methodology, findings, conclusions, and recommendations. The report should be no more than 30 pages long excluding annexes and with an executive summary. Timeframe The consultancy work is scheduled to start in June 2021 and the following milestones are envisaged: • Expression of Interest – to be submitted by 19th May 2021. • Research approach and action plan completed 25th June 2021. • Literature and documentary review, KIIs and FGDs 31st August 2021. • Final report by September 30th, 2021. Management of Consultancy Clodagh McLoughlin, Senior Programmes Officer - Development Programmes (PGII) and Aoife Reilly, Senior Programmes Officer - Humanitarian and Emergency Affairs (HPP) will manage the consultancy.Consultant Requirements The consultant should have research skills. In addition, they shall have the following expertise and qualifications: • At least 10 years of experience in working in the field of SRHR; • A background in social science or similar discipline (International Development, Development Economics/Planning, Public Health) • At least 5-7 years of demonstrated leadership in qualitative and mixed methods research projects • Extensive expertise, knowledge, and experience in conducting multi-country research projects • Fluent in English.

Examination of climate and nutrition in World Vision Ireland’s PGII Programme
Organization: World Vision Closing date: 19 May 2021 Terms of Reference (ToR) World Vision Ireland was established as a registered Irish charity in 1983.

World Vision Ireland’s Programme Grant (PG) II is called Access: Infant and Maternal Health Plus (AIM Health Plus).

To achieve this goal, AIM Health Plus focuses on five outcomes:1) Children and their mothers are well nourished 2) Children are protected from illness and are managed appropriately when ill 3) Children and their caregivers' access and utilise essential maternal and newborn care (MNC) services 4) Health Governance and partnerships strengthened at micro, meso and macro levels 5) MNCH outcomes accelerated and amplified through the use of digital technology. AIM Health Plus implements World Vision (WV)’s “7-11” strategy, a package of seven interventions for mothers (e.g. attending antenatal class, increased folic acid and iron supplements) and eleven for children younger than two years (e.g. exclusive breastfeeding, vaccinations, eating food rich in Vitamin A and iron for growth) which are high-impact and low-cost, intended to reduce mortality and morbidity among mothers, new-borns and children. The 7-11 strategy employs three core project models to bring about 360-degree support for behaviour change related to maternal, new-born and child health (MNCH) practices at the individual, household, community and environmental levels. These models are: Timed and Targeted Counselling (ttC) at the household level through community health workers (CHWs). ttC is a World Vision model whereby the “7-11” interventions covering the first 1,000 days of life are promoted to mothers and their supporters through home visits by CHWs, using a timed and targeted and dialogue behaviour change counselling approach. Community Committees (COMMs) at the community level. This approach consists of health-focused community groups empowered to coordinate and manage activities leading to increased community capacity, improved community health and strengthened community health systems and civil society. Citizen Voice and Action (CVA) at the environmental level. Citizen Voice and Action is World Vision’s primary approach to community level advocacy. It aims to increase dialogue between ordinary citizens and the duty bearers who provide services to the public. It also aims to improve accountability from the administrative and political sections of government (both national and local) in order to improve the delivery of public services. AIM Health Plus has been implementing these core project models in partnership with local Ministries of Health (MoHs). In addition, the programme has been focusing on strengthening health facilities’ capacity to provide quality health care and delivering context-specific nutrition interventions to address the barriers faced in each programme site to improve nutrition outcomes. The first objective of the programme is to ensure children and their mothers are well-nourished. Results from the mid-term review showed high rates of food insecurity at household level (% households that are severely food insecure rage: 11%- 50%) while children 6-59months with a minimum acceptable diet ranged from 17% - 49%. The mid-term review further showed that showed that stunting rates of children 6-59months remain high across all programme areas. While there was some improvement in the percentage of children 6-59months who were wasted or underweight, the rates were still high. Countries in Sub-Saharan Africa are particularly vulnerable to the impacts of climate change due to the region’s reliance on rainfed agriculture, highly variable weather, and high rates of poverty . Though AIM Health Plus has introduced context-specific nutrition interventions to improve nutrition outcomes, challenges to food availability and diversity remain. Changing weather patterns are being experienced across programme areas with longer dry periods and less predictable wet seasons impacting food production and availability at community and household levels, as well impacting household nutrition. World Vision Ireland seeks to examine the patterns of climate change and nutrition across the four AIM Health Plus programme countries. It further seeks to map the nuanced responses taking place within the programme and what learnings can be taken from this to inform future World Vision Ireland programming. Scope of Work This piece of work aims to examine, and correlate, the patterns of climate change and nutrition across the four AIM Health Plus programme countries. It further seeks to map and examine the context specific approaches taking place to improve household food security and diet diversity within the programme. Based on this, recommendations can be made for future programming, particularly within the context of predicted changes in climate and weather. While the approach to this examination is open to the consultant, it is expected to include: • An extensive literature review and analyses of background information, evidence and learning on patterns of climate change and nutrition across the four AIM Health Plus programme countries • Mapping and analyses of context specific approaches taking place to improve household food security and diet diversity within the programme • Key Informant interviews with AIM Health Plus programme staff, local partner staff, World Vision International staff Due to COVID-19 restrictions and limitations on travel to and within programme countries, a remote approach is preferred. Outputs The expected outputs are: • Approach and action plan outlining timeline and key deliverables • A learning brief summarising key findings and recommendations (Maximum of 4 pages). • A final report that sets out methodology, findings, conclusions, and recommendations. The report should be no more than 20 pages long excluding annexes and with an executive summary and include a case study on actions that have worked well from AIM Health Plus, World Vision or further afield.Timeframe The consultancy work is scheduled to start in June 2021 and the following milestones are envisaged: • Expression of Interest – to be submitted by 19th May 2021. • Research approach and action plan completed 25th June 2021. • Learning brief and report by August 27th, 2021.Management of Consultancy Clodagh McLoughlin, Senior Programmes Officer - Development Programmes (PGII) will manage the consultancy.Consultant Requirements The consultant should have research skills.

Course Manager the Fellowship in Medical Humanitarian Action / MSF Academy for M&E and Field accreditation (m/f/x)
Organization: Médecins Sans Frontières Closing date: 18 May 2021 Course Manager the Fellowship in Medical Humanitarian Action / MSF Academy for M&E; and Field accreditation (m/f/x) 04/05/2021 Médecins Sans Frontières (MSF) is an international humanitarian aid organization that provides assistance in more than 60 countries to populations in distress, to victims of natural or manmade disasters and to victims of armed conflicts, without discrimination and irrespective of origin, religion, creed or political affiliation. CONTEXT General Academy The MSF Academy for Healthcare is an initiative that has been created with the aim to increase the quality of healthcare provided by our staff to the patients we assist in the missions. The Academy has a growing portfolio of projects addressing specific learning objectives of different categories of healthcare staff in MSF. All these projects are chosen in line with overall MSF operational and medical priorities. A large focus is on MSF’s national staff, especially in the countries with the largest gaps in human resources for health (HRH) capacity. Presently, a lot of effort goes to nursing staff of MSF hospitals in Africa. More recently we added skills in out-patient departments as a new program. The Academy develops adapted curricula and invests a great deal in clinical mentorship in the wards. Presently the nursing training programme has projects in CAR, South Sudan and Sierra Leone and it is planned to be expanded to other countries in the coming years. We hope to install a much stronger learning culture within the MSF operations. Beyond MSF projects, the Academy connects also to health authorities to work on accreditation of its learning and punctual support to governmental programs. The Academy works also on two projects to develop longer term, academic courses. The first is a Post-Graduate Diploma in Infectious diseases, the other a masters-level course for medical managers in the organisation. These courses are developed in collaboration with existing universities. Finally, there are also a couple of scholarship programs that send MSF staff to high quality schools in Africa, either to become certified nurses or specialist nurses in anaesthesia-reanimation. The portfolio of the Academy is planned to develop further, so new projects can be added in the coming years. The Fellowship in MHA has the aim to improve the quality of MSF operations through the development of the competencies of the Medical coordinators and PMR. The objective is to propose a 24-month, work-based learning course, focussed on the specific competencies of the MedCo and PMR. A detailed plan of learning objectives has been finalised already, build around 8 key competencies, that include a good introduction in epidemiology and statistics: · Competency 1: To design operational strategies for the country considering context needs and policies · Competency 2: To ensure optimal operational management of medical interventions · Competency 3: To manage and support medical team · Competency 4: To coordinate and or manage emergency preparedness and response · Competency 5: To coordinate pharmacy management · Competency 6: To be an active actor of the organisation’s positioning contributing with medical humanitarian analysis (networking, representation, communication, advocacy) · Competency 7: To facilitate operational research · Competency 8: To manage the health of the staff The Academy aims to maintain the same overall educational approach in all its projects: competency-based learning; as much as possible on-the-job training with the presence of strong tutors or clinical mentors; and seeking to achieve appropriate accreditation for all trainings, often in collaboration with partner teaching institutes. Nature of the function The function will have a dual role: · Course Manager of the Fellowship in Medical Humanitarian Action (estimate 60% of the time). · As a part of the MSF Academy Global team, in charge of the management of some of the other projects (in coordination with the other managers) and pedagogical priorities of MSF Academy courses in the field (40% of the time) as accreditation, quality assurance. For the Fellowship the function will be responsible for: · Coordinating the finalisation of the pre-implementation preparation of the course · Facilitating the collaboration and communication between course stakeholders (e.g. subject matter experts, tutors, administrative personell and students). · The overall management of the implementation of the course · The monitoring, quality assurance and evaluation process, to inform further development of the program · The pedagogical follow up of the course and pedagogical support of the participants and the tutors In regards to project management, the number of projects are increasing and there are still more technical profiles in the team than project managers (3). It is planned to coordinate the tasks regularly in the team and assure an efficient distribution of roles.
