Project Review Consultant - Papua New Guinea
7/08/2014

CARE International in Papua New Guinea (CARE PNG) is seeking to review two projects that are working in Sexual, Reproductive and Maternal Health towards the aim of redesigning both projects, and bringing them together under one programme.

CARE PNG has developed a Long Term Programme (LTP) which places SRMH, women’s empowerment and gender equality at the centre of its programming and operations. 

Designed around the women’s empowerment framework, the Maternal and Infant Health (MIH) Project seeks to integrate sexual and reproductive health (SRH) and gender and power issues with the staples of health development to address underlying and intermediate causes of maternal and infant death and disease. 

CARE’s Youth SRH (KTA) Project embeds its understanding of sexual and reproductive health among young people in the context of social determinants of health, with recognition of the impact that post-crisis rehabilitation has had on the young people of Bougainville.

The review will look at the strengths of both projects, and where they struggle, and make recommendations on how the strengths can be shared and built upon as the two projects are brought under a single SRMH project umbrella.

Interested parties should submit a CV, letter of interest addressing each of the selection criteria, and specifications of their daily rate by August 31 2014. Queries and applications should be directed to: recruitmentpng@careint.org under the subject line: SRMH Consultant.
