Call for Consultancy to Conduct a Baseline Survey for the “Improving Maternal and Child Health in Greater Mandera County, North Eastern, Kenya” Project

Reference Number: IMP-02-CN-1603

Health Poverty Action works with some of the poorest and most marginalised communities in Africa, Asia and Latin America, often in very difficult environments.

We work to enable these communities to achieve improvements to their health, promoting this as one of their fundamental human rights.

In June, 2012 HPA received funding from Department For International Development (DFID) to implement an MCH project in Mandera County, North Eastern, Kenya. The project will be implemented in close partnership with the local NGO, Emergency Pastoralist Assistance Group (EPAG) and the Ministry of Health

The overall objective of the project is to improve maternal and child health (MCH) outcomes for marginalized pastoralist communities in Mandera, Kenya towards the achievement of MDGs 4 and 5.

The objectives of the baseline survey include

1) To determine the current levels of knowledge, attitudes and practices of community members in the greater Mandera County in the areas of maternal and child health (MCH) including immunization, maternal health emergencies, Harmful Traditional Practices (HTPs), HIV/AIDS, TB  and other STIs,
2) To collect data relating to the indicators in the project log frame, that will be used to monitor the project, and
3) To determine the status of indicators relevant to the target health facilities, located in the greater Mandera County
