UNICEF Consultant Jobs in Kenya


Job Details

  • UNICEF is the world’s largest provider of vaccines for developing countries, UNICEF supports child health and nutrition, good water and sanitation, quality basic education for all boys and girls, and the protection of children from violence, exploitation, and AIDS.

  • UNICEF is funded entirely by the voluntary contributions of individuals, businesses, foundations and governments.

    Activities and Tasks Specifically, the key task for the consultant will be:

  • Conduct feasibility assessment of the CBHI
    The assessment will look at the feasibility of introducing a CBHI in Garissa.

  • The analysis will take into account community-specific dynamics and will entail broad and in-depth consultations and interviews with stakeholders.

  • These will encompass community members and community structures and organizations – notably other possible solidarity-based ones – as well as health providers, relevant institutions and stakeholders.

  • The analysis will look at the willingness and commitment the community has towards establishing a CBHI, at the existing social capital and at the level of risk aversion of potential members, to provide suggestions on the key features that could make a CBHI likely to succeed.

  • Moreover, the assessment will determine the main health needs of the pilot target group (i.e. pregnant and lactating women that benefit from the NSNP), in order to identify actual demand-side and non-medical barriers (e.g. transport costs) that constraint access to essential health services.

  • The identified constraints will help inform the future benefit package the CBHI could offer to its members and that would need to include non-medical costs.

  • The analysis will also include a desk review of national and international relevant practices. It will keep into account that in the long-term the CBHI should be absorbed – or at least closely linked – to the NHIF.

  • Draft the design of the CBHI and map the relevant stakeholders

  • Based on the feasibility assessment and on the inputs gathered from stakeholders, the consultant will draft the design features of the CBHI, possibly providing few options and highlighting their risks and advantages.

  • The consultant will also undertake a mapping of relevant stakeholders, whose contributions will help inform the design.

  • The
    feasibility study and the design will need to be validated by the community and the Garissa county government in a dedicated workshop.

  • Devise a plan of action for the implementation of the CBHI

  • The consultant will prepare a plan of action for the implementation of the CBHI, that specifies milestones, timelines, actors involved and key actions, highlighting risks and mitigation measures as well.

  • The plan should also foresee dissemination activities and ensure the introduction of the CBHI maintains a community-based and participatory approach throughout its phases.

    Work relationships

  • The consultant will be responsible for the production and finalization of the deliverables and will work under UNICEF administrative and technical supervision, in close collaboration with the Garissa county government.

  • The consultant will engage with the main health and social protection stakeholders in Garissa, and particularly with local players and relevant community structures and organizations.

  • The consultant will report to the Social Policy (Social Protection) Specialist in UNICEF KCO and will work in close collaboration with the Social Protection and Health teams in both UNICEF KCO and Garissa Zonal Office (ZO).

    It should be also noted that:

    • Payment is on satisfactory completion of deliverables duly authorized by the Supervisor of contract.

    • Specific deliverables of acceptable quality must be submitted at the planned times.

    • Performance will be evaluated considering quality of deliverables, consultation with stakeholders, timeliness of deliverables of and comprehensiveness of work as defined in the terms of reference.

    • The consultant is expected to carry out the design process in accordance with professional communication development standards
