Public Health Specialist Consultant – Abt Associates


Public Health Specialist Consultant – Abt Associates : The USAID-funded Sustaining Health Outcomes through the Private Sector (SHOPS) Plus project (2016-2020) is helping CRS strengthen its institutional capacity. In addition, SHOPS Plus is organizing an evaluation of the GGMS project. The purpose of the evaluation is to assess CRS’s performance in implementing the GGMS project and to inform USAID/Nepal about possible future directions for programming of social marketing in Nepal. Specifically, the evaluation will assess three areas:

  • CRS’s performance in reaching GGMS project objectives and CRS’s overall contribution to FP provision in Nepal and to national strategies.
  • The impact of GGMS and CRS activities in the private health sector, including the level of private sector engagement under GGMS, how CRS may have contributed to growing the total market for health products and services, and whether there are opportunities for more public-private partnerships.
  • Future opportunities for developing the private health sector in general and integrating social marketing in a private health sector strategy.

Given SHOPS Plus’s close involvement with CRS in implementing GGMS, SHOPS Plus is seeking three short-term external consultants to conduct each of the three components of the evaluation listed above. This scope of work details the purpose, tasks, deliverables, timeline, and qualifications for a Social Marketing Specialist to conduct the first component.
