Consultants – JHU-CCP Breakthrough ACTION Nepal Project
Breakthrough ACTION Nepal is a 20-month USAID funded project with the overall objective to strengthen the institutional and technical capacity of the Government of Nepal (GON) to design, implement, evaluate, and coordinate effective social behavior change (SBC) programs. The key GON partners are the National Health Education Information Communication Center (NHEICC), Family Health Division (FHD), and Child Health Division (CHD).
The Breakthrough ACTION Nepal team will support NHEICC to actively collaborate and work in close coordination with SBC, service delivery, and other multi-sectoral partners and stakeholders at the national, provincial, and local levels to understand the changing SBC system for health, take advantage of the opportunities to strengthen the system, and resolve challenges that have arisen due to federalization and other factors. In line with existing governmental policies and priorities, NHEICC, in coordination with FHD and CHD, with the support of Breakthrough ACTION Nepal, will seek to provide the necessary support to the SBC system and strengthen the capacity of health units/coordinators at the province and local levels to prioritize funding for designing, implementing, and evaluating SBC programs.
NHEICC will work with Breakthrough ACTION Nepal to identify priority issues and analyze existing data sources in Nepal from the government and partners to fill gaps in knowledge and inform SBC activities throughout the country pertaining to reproductive, maternal, newborn, child, and adolescent health and nutrition in Nepal. The project will ensure to make the data user-friendly and easily accessible for critical decision-makers at appropriate levels.
Breakthrough ACTION Nepal will support the implementation of formative activities, including a comprehensive data scoping exercise (which will include a desk review of existing data and the development of evidence maps to summarize existing evidence) and the application of a network and stakeholder mapping tool to assess the current SBC landscape.
