TERMS OF REFERENCE (TOR) FOR A CONSULTANT TO TRANSLATE FP STRATEGY AND COSTED IMPLEMENTATION PLAN (CIP) DEVELOPED FOR PUNTLAND STATE OF SOMALIA

Background/Justification

In 2015, Somalia became an FP2020 commitment making country, and in 2017 the government revised its commitment to ensure access to quality reproductive health services, including family planning, in emergency and crisis settings from 50% of facilities offering FP services in 2017 to 80% by 2020.

Although there is an existing reproductive health policy in Puntland that supports FP services, there is a need to develop a FP-specific strategy and costed implementation plan that is owned by the government and that will guide the government in allocating the necessary public funds for FP services. This would also guide the MOHD giving a clear direction in prioritizing FP service provision while engaging with other stakeholders.

Save the Children recently has secured funding from FP2020 to support the Puntland government by creating an enabling policy environment that supports the delivery of quality family planning services. With the current modern Contraceptive Prevalence Rate (CPR) for women estimated at 14.2% and an projected population of women of reproductive age (WRA) at 760,000[1], we hope that over 107,920 Women of Reproductive age will potentially benefit from the full implementation of the proposed policy.

In light of this, Save the Children is seeking the services of an individual consultant to translate a Family planning strategy and Costed Implementation plan for Puntland state of Somalia.
