How can you make a difference?
BACKGROUND
In 2018, UNICEF has started supporting PORALG to develop and pilot a child rights monitoring report card. The report card design was approved by PORALG management following an assessment and consultation process. The report card has been piloted in three regions and six districts namely Dodoma (Kondoa and Dodoma City), Iringa (Iringa MC and Kilolo DC) and Songwe (Momba and Mbozi DC).  The aim of  introducing the Child Monitoring Report Card has been to  decision makers such as District Executive Directors (DEDs), councilors, District Administrative Assistant (DAS), District Commissioners (DC), at district levels and regional levels (Regional Commissioner- RC, Regional Administrative Secretary-RAS) to make informed decisions on the basis of a snap-shot overview (report card) of critical indicators on child well-being progress and on child-focused service delivery and program and budget performance.
Recommended:
The project was implemented in four phases where Phase 1: Assessment of situation of child related data availability, quality, needs and use; Phase 2: Development of the child right report card; Phase 3: Integration of the child right report card into the IMES Phase 4: Evaluation of the pilot Phase to inform the development of scale up plan. The Phases 1, 2 and 4 have been completed. In the course of pilot phase, the following products were made available:  final pilot report, the design overview (PowerPoint), the template used during pilot, sample report cards, the manuals. These are the main sources for the review.

There are several ongoing initiatives that can inform development and facilitate the institutionalisation of a report card for child-focused indicators. At LGA level, PO-RALG has developed a comprehensive Monitoring and Evaluation Framework for the period 2016/17-2020/21 and the Integrated Monitoring and Evaluation System (IMES) designed by PO-RALG, under support of PS3. In addition, Tanzania has made considerable efforts towards introducing a central management information system in the context of the Tanzania Statistical Master Plan. The USAID/Tanzania Public Sector Systems Strengthening (PS3) project supports the Government of Tanzania to strengthen public sector systems to promote the delivery, quality, and use of services, particularly for underserved populations.

This assignment therefore seeks an individual national consultant who has an extensive experience of working on Child rights and wellbeing with LGAs on data management issues or monitoring and evaluation to support to carry out an evaluation of the pilot phase of a child rights monitoring report card. 

PUPPOSE AND OBJECTIVE OF THE STUDY
Purpose of the review
The purpose of this review is to provide evidence to fine-tune the design, finalize process steps, prepare IMES integration, and prepare scale up plan for the child report card.

Objectives
The overall objective of this assignment is to evaluate the pilot phase of the child rights monitoring report card at district and region levels of Tanzania Mainland.

The specific objectives of this assignment are:

  1. Assess the feasibility of the Child report card in terms of accessing data, analyzing data, and use of data for decision making,
  2. To understand the relevance of the user manuals and proposed indicators
  3. Document the motivation and capacity of users in using the child report card
  4. Document challenges facing the institutionalisation of the child report card.
  5. Map out key steps, milestone and other requirements for integration of Child report card into the IMES
  6. Document lessons learnt from the pilot phase
  7.  Provide key recommendations for improving the design   of the child report card, data collection and compilation and scaling up the child report card.

SCOPE OF WORK
The aim of this assignment is to conduct a review of pilot phase of child report Card that was tested in six districts of Kilolo, Iringa MC, Dodoma City, Kondoa DC, Momba DC and Mbozi DC. The study will take place in all six districts so as to get a better overview of the variety of experiences and capture different challenges faced by LGAs in the course of using the Child report card. The focus of this study is in terms of what we learned from the pilot (e.g. on capacity, on user-friendliness of the template, feasibility in terms of accessing data, review of the manuals, on the data environment, the user perspective) and how that can inform design, implementation process, and integration into IMES. The study will focus on the number of reports card produced at district level, number of staff trained on the use of the report card and number of times the data from the child report card have been discussed in decision making bodies at council level. The consultant is required to produce a 20-pager assessment report with well-polished executive summary excluding appendices.

To provide technical support for the coordination and strengthening of integrated community health systems in Tanzania, with a focus on operationalization of community primary health care structures aligned with strategic guidance from the Ministry of Health, Community Development, Gender, Elderly and Children (MoHCDGEC) and President’s Office of Regional Administration and Local Government (PORALG) in close collaboration with relevant partners and stakeholders.
UNICEF works in some of the world’s toughest places, to reach the world’s most disadvantaged children. To save their lives. To defend their rights. To help them fulfill their potential.
Across 190 countries and territories, we work for every child, everywhere, every day, to build a better world for everyone.

And we never give up.
For every child, [Health]
Background, Problem Statements, and Justification
As a result, the focus shifted from the late seventies onwards to volunteers to support community health structures, often externally funded. Three decades of fragmented volunteer programs continued  in vertical priority health issues such as HIV/AIDS, Nutrition, Family Planning etc. Each of these projects supported volunteers but activities varied in scale, training content and  duration, and the extent of engagement with existing or potential health structures and the community itself. Limited coordination and lack of a comprehensive primary health care approach further isolated these approaches.
Today, the goals of integrated primary health care at community level have still not been realized, and for rural communities, access to care remains inequitable. Recent research shows that 66% of women in Tanzania faced at least one key barrier in accessing health care, primarily the costs of treatment (50%) and distance to the health facility (42%) (Afnan-Holmes et al, 2015).  This is further demonstrated by the fact that in Tanzania, 86% of urban women give birth in a health facility compared to only 54% of rural women, 50% of urban children with diarrhoea are taken to a health provider while only 40% of rural children get treatment, and timely postnatal care for newborns is much more common in urban areas (61%) than in rural areas (35%) (MOHCDGEC, NBS, OCGS & ICF, 2016). These inequities are even more pronounced in certain regions, with 94% of births taking place in health facilities in urban Dar Es Salaam, compared to only 40% in Simiyu, which is 93% rural. (MOHCDGEC, NBS, OCGS & ICF, 2016).
Social protection, nutrition and environmental sanitation are three areas where progress has been limited in scale not the least due to the poor integration of these interventions into an overall community health structure supported by multi functional community and social welfare  cadres.
Although Tanzania has made commendable progress in extending life expectancy, controlling communicable diseases and reducing the deaths of children under 5 in recent decades, the number of maternal and new-born deaths continues to be unacceptably high. Each year in Tanzania, more than 110,000 children under five and 8,000 mothers die, mostly of preventable causes, with pneumonia, malaria, and diarrhoea accounting for 55% of deaths in children aged 1-59 months (Afnan-Holmes et al, 2015). With the current national human resource gap estimated at 65%, a large percentage of this gap exists at the dispensary and village level in rural areas, and therefore, “task shifting”of primary care functions from professional health workers to community health workers (CHWs) is considered to be a means to improving the health of millions quickly and at reasonable cost (Hirschhorn at al, 2006).

MODE OF APPLICATION: APPLY ONLINE
CHWs with a broad health and social welfare mandate are relevant to function as the essential bridge with and between social and health structures. As part of this, the recent government health policy (2019) stipulates that strengthened community health structures (including CHWs) need to be put in place to address the multidimensional health needs in an integrated manner. To date, despite relevant policies and strategies being in final stages of approval, implementation of task shifting as well as integrating cadres of community-based social and health services providers into the formal health sector in Tanzania has yet to be fully developed. 

How can you make a difference?
1. Intervention
The Government of Tanzania (GoT) through MOHCDGEC and PORALG has recently updated the national Community Based Health Programmes (CBHP) policy guideline and the national CBHP implementation design to facilitate coordinated implementation of CHW programmes in the country. The overseeing role for the implementation of the two policy documents is vested in the CBHP unit of the Health Promotion Section – MOHCDGEC. The CBHP unit, although seriously understaffed, is supported by a very active Technical Advisory Group (TAG) where other key ministries, departments and government agencies (MDAs including PORALG, MOF, POPSM, etc); technical experts and academicians; community health implementing partners and donors meet regularly under the chairmanship of the assistant director of MOHCDGEC HPS to provide technical and financial support to guide the ministry in its coordinating, monitoring and governance role.
Recognizing the technical gap in the CBHP unit of the MOHCDGEC HPS, UNICEF Health section is proposing to recruit an experienced consultant to provide technical support to the key ministry/ies and partners for the coordination and strengthening of integrated community health systems in Tanzania, with a focus on operationalization of community health systems and structures aligned with the new national CBHP policy guideline and implamentation design.

UNICEF, in coordination with members of TAG, could play a pivotal role in moving the policy and implementation strategic guidance  forward with technical and financial support to MOHCDGEC HPS, while other donors have pledged support for implementation of CHW activities at community level through LGAs. Improved community health systems and structures with effective community health and social welfare workers serve towards achieving sustainable development goals (SDG) 3 – to achieve health and well-being for all; SDG 5 – to achieve gender equality; SDG 9 – innovation for all; SDG 10 – growing equality; and SDG 17 – to promote private-public partnerships. 

2. Tasks, Deliverables and Timeline
The consultant is expected to work in close collaboration with UNICEF Tanzania in the following tasks:

  • To support the Assistant Director of the HPS and the CBHP unit of the MoHCDGEC in guiding the process of implementing the new national CBHP policy guideline and implementation design, including to establish a learning agenda to inform implementation research, to monitor progress and to reflect on results achieved.
  • To support the Assistant Director of the HPS and the CBHP unit of the MoHCDGEC to shift the focus of the Technical Advisory Group (TAG) from CHW agenda only to integrated community health systems; to advocate for the active involvement of PORALG in this process; and to ensure harmonization and coordination with relevant community and primary health care structures across programmes and cadres.
  • To ensure that UNICEF Health section and the Children and AIDS section (CAIDS) are kept informed on the CHW agenda and community health systems policies to ensure strategic decision making and follow up of lessons learned to guide priority setting and work plans within the respective sections.
  • To advise UNICEF Health, Nutrition and CAIDS sections and collaborating regions (Kigoma, Mbeya and Songwe) on technical aspects of the implementation of the newly updated national CBHP policy guideline and implementation design such as financial mechanisms, integration of support from various programs (including integrated community case management of childhood illnesses – malaria, pneumonia, diarrhea) and links with official and unofficial community structures, e.g. adolescent peer educators.
  • To promote coordination of programmes related to community systems and structures within UNICEF Tanzania Country Office (TCO) through supporting the CHW Task force and its transitioning to a community systems task force to enable coordination and integration of activities within TCO
  • Provide expert guidance to the implementation of UNICEF supported CBHPs in Kigoma, Mbeya, Njombe and Dar es salaam regions, including strengthening community based  strategies to support adolescent living with HIV and their families

The consultant will provide technical expertise to UNICEF and MOHCDGEC on supporting the roll out of the Community Health programme. This may include a variety of areas such as policy and strategic guidance, advocacy, training, job tasks and other aspects of Community PHC implementation, logistics and costing of programming etc. The consultant will review all policies and materials related to Community Health and support the government in coordination of all agencies and internally in the MOHCDGEC, as well as assisting the CBHP unit in their role of monitoring the programme.

The Technical Advisory Group, donors, implementing partners, academics and others are crucial to the success of the CHW programme, and the consultant will act as a liaison among agencies, facilitate quarterly meetings, prepare meeting notes and ensure smooth functioning of the TAG. The consultant will also coordinate among government ministries in relation to community health and CHWs, such as with the PORALG and other relevant departments, as well as ensuring that CBHP and CHW roles and programming are reflected in a variety of MOHCDGEC strategic documents and materials.

Deliverables:

  1. Documentation, minutes and action plans based on  interactions and  quarterly meetings on implementation and coordination with the TAG – MOHCDGEC HPS/CBHP and PORALG
  2. Learning agenda for CHWs and community health systems agreed by TAG members, MOHCDGEC HPS/CBHP and PORALG
  3. Update reports/presentations for UNICEF TCO health and Children and AIDS sections as well as other stakeholders and donors on progress of implementation of new national CBHP policy guideline and implementation design
  4. Policy/advocacy briefs for UNICEF senior management from lessons learned implementing new national CBHP policy guideline and implementation design
  5. Policy/advocacy briefs for MOHCDGEC and PORALG senior management from lessons learned implementing new national CBHP policy guideline and implementation design
  6. Advocacy for the integrated community case management/basic curative services (iCCM) for childhood illnesses (malaria, pneumonia and diarrhea) including conducting and facilitating a symposium/consultative meeting engaging key stakeholders to push iCCM agenda forward
  7. Conduct field visits for technical support to the implementation of CHW programmes in Kigoma, Mbeya and Songwe regions, and share reports and lessons learned to UNICEF, the Government (MOHCDGEC, PORALG), LGAs and implementing partners

UNICEF works in some of the world’s toughest places, to reach the world’s most disadvantaged children. To save their lives. To defend their rights. To help them fulfill their potential.

Social media is a powerful tool to raise awareness of child rights in Tanzania and keep audiences and stakeholders updated and informed on UNICEF Tanzania’s activities in the country. It helps build public interest, highlight key challenges and generate conversations and engagement around child rights and related issues.
UNICEF’s Global Communication and Public Advocacy Strategy has highlighted the need for a ‘digital first’ approach in line with the growing influence of digital media across the world. Internet penetration is growing significantly in Tanzania with the number of internet users rising to 23 million in 2018, with the majority of those using their handsets to go online. Mobile phone use has surged in Tanzania and other African countries over the past decade, helped by the launch of cheaper smartphones and data services. Social media is becoming increasingly more relevant in Tanzania especially in urban centers and in the country’s largest cities. Tanzania has a growing population of young people who are the most active users of social media. Social media, therefore, must be an integral part of UNICEF’s advocacy and communication strategy and a key tool in our engagement with young people.
UNICEF Tanzania launched its country website in 2012 and its social media sites in August 2011. Over the last year or so, there has been an increase in UNICEF’s voice, reach and engagement on social media platforms-Facebook and Twitter. In line with GCPAS and the ‘digital first’ strategy, TCO was successful in reaching out to audiences through a proactive social media approach. UNICEF engagement on social media led to an increase of over 5000 followers on Facebook and over 15000 followers on Twitter, over the last one year. TCO has also engaged with digital influencers to further boost our reach and engagement.
There is scope to do a lot more. There are more than 14 million active internet users in the country and social media is increasingly being used by young people to stay connected. It is a critical opportunity for UNICEF to connect with the growing online audience and maximise our brand, reach and engagement on digital platforms.
In order to take forward and strengthen UNICEF’s Voice, Reach and Engagement, the Communication, Advocacy and Partnerships team is recruiting a Digital Communication Officer to support content creation and design as well as managing office’s social media analytics 

How can you make a difference?
