Detailed description of project Back

Action to improve access to voluntary family planning and reproductive health care and to overcome the barriers has not been efficient and sufficient in the past on the part of countries themselves, due to the controversy and sensitivity surrounding sexual and reproductive health and the low importance often given to women’s health — but also because governments have not been successful in reaching the vulnerable groups, such as young, unmarried women and the poor and marginalised populations. The role of civil society organisations (CSO) in complementing and supporting the efforts of the public sector is therefore essential. The purpose of the Call for Proposals “Promoting sexual and reproductive health and rights — universal access to reproductive health” is precisely to complement governments’ and donor agencies’ bilateral efforts by promoting the role and work of CSOs in advocating universal access to reproductive health and rights, and showcasing cost-effective and sustainable service delivery, with a view to accelerating progress towards MDG5.B in the world’s poorest countries and regions.

The objective of this consultancy is to recruit a team of assessors to assist the Contracting Authority in the selection of the best proposals received under this Call for Proposals and to achieve a high-quality, complete and coherent selection process of projects in line with the criteria set in the Guidelines for applicants
