UNICEF is inviting applications for an individual consultant to identify bottlenecks within the health sector which contribute to sub-optimal access to post-violence GBV services
Below are the objectives of the assignment:
- Facilitate stakeholder consultations workshop to identify critical gaps in the health sector response to post violence care for AGYW (Adolescent Girls and Young Women) and build a sense of ownership across MOHCC units/departments.
- Identify and support MOHCC to address gaps in the policy or regulatory frameworks (as related to the health sector response to post violence care) for delivery of quality sexual violence services including access to PEP. Essential components: facility level guidelines for management of sexual violence, including referrals; access to all necessary medicines and supplies; record-keeping and reporting procedures including medico-legal documentation for forensic evidence; free services for survivors.
- Develop and distribute national standardized site level tools, such as checklists (e.g., for IPV screening, stock management, supportive supervision, process flow charts), and standardized templates for district referral guides and flow diagrams. Expand distribution of GBV protocol and GBV register once finalized.
- Support the MOHCC to adapt and implement the rollout of a comprehensive GBV Quality Assurance Tool (including those of partners such as PEPFAR, JHPIEGO, CDC, WHO, 2017) in selected sites to measure quality of post violence care in clinical settings against a set of service delivery standards and identify key gaps and challenges in service provision, develop and monitor action plans and recognize progress and achievements.
- Support the MOHCC to identify critical, site level training needs including mental health and develop a plan to address them, factoring in the HRH crisis and sustainability issues.
- Support the MOHCC to integrate key children and adolescents’ friendly skills (common clinical signs and symptoms of violence and mental health assessment (including for child survivors) and how to provide appropriate care) into nurses’ pre-service curriculum.

- Attending a kick-off meeting with UNICEF.
