Description of the goods or services required
IPPF is a global service provider and a leader advocate of sexual and reproductive health and rights (SRHR) for all. IPPF provides SRHR services in 172 countries and runs approximately 65,000 service points worldwide. IPPF is currently implementing The Women's Integrated Sexual Health (WISH2ACTION - W2A) programme.
WISH2ACTION - W2A programme is the UK Government's flagship health programme designed to transform the lives of millions of women and girls. Funded by the UK's Department for International Development (DFID), WISH will provide integrated and holistic sexual and reproductive healthcare to millions of additional users across 27 countries in Africa and South Asia from 2018-2021.
Through a consortium of IPPF Member Associations (MAs) and five internationally recognized organizations and led by IPPF, WISH2ACTION prioritizes the most underserved women and girls, particularly youth under 20, the very poor, and other marginalized populations (including people with disability, people displaced or affected by humanitarian crisis, and people living in hard-to-reach areas). Areas of integrated service delivery supported through WISH2ACTION include comprehensive family planning services, safe abortion and post abortion care, STI and HIV testing and treatment, counselling, SGBV services, and cervical cancer screening. The exact package of care, range of services, and nature of integration between services differs by country and by service delivery channel depending on factors including the legal context, government policy and provider capacity etc.
IPPF seeks a contractor to take responsibility for the Communications Strategy of this multi-country, integrated Family Planning and Reproductive Health programme. This position will serve to raise awareness about the WISH2ACTION programme goals, objectives and benefits among key public and private stakeholder groups, emphasizing communications support, comprehensive media outreach and publicity; and supporting project partners to share information on core project components.
