Oxfam Canada is seeking an experienced and qualified research consultant (individual or team) to design and lead a qualitative research initiative, data collection, and analysis on the topic of strengthening health providers’ abilities in delivering sexual and reproductive health (SRH) services to adolescent girls and young women in Ethiopia, Mozambique, and the Philippines.
Oxfam Canada (OCA) is an affiliate of the international Oxfam Confederation networked in over 90 countries as part of a global movement for change. Our mission is to build lasting solutions to poverty and injustice with a focus on improving the lives and promoting the rights of women and girls. For more information on our organization, please visit us at www.oxfam.ca.
Oxfam Canada is currently implementing an approximately 40 million CAD portfolio in SRHR programming, via its Sexual Health and Empowerment (SHE) and Her Future, Her Choice (HFHC) projects. Part of Oxfam Canada’s theory of change for its SRHR programming is a focus on research, including participatory action research, to generate evidence, knowledge and learning for SRHR programming, policy, influencing, and advocacy. In this regard, OCA will undertake a Research Series over 2021-2023, with the first topic focused on unpacking the most effective ways to work with service providers and strengthen their abilities in addressing the SRH needs of adolescent girls and young women (AGYW). The research will more specifically understand:
• the challenges faced by health providers in Ethiopia, Mozambique, and the Philippines in providing comprehensive, youth-friendly, gender-sensitive SRH services to adolescent girls and young women (AGYW); and,
• strategies that may help to address such challenges.
