Job Title: EIMS Consultant
Location: NEPWHAN National HQ, Abuja (FCT)
Duration of consultancy: 47 Days
The civil society organizations (CSOs) in Nigeria contributed to the national response to COVID-19, particularly with regards to facilitating access to essential commodities and routine healthcare services. One of the key strategies employed by the ATM network in response to the disruption of essential health services include the strengthening of community led monitoring systems to identify gaps in the facility, community and government institution-based service delivery systems. The community-led monitoring (CLM) activities of the CBOs will be targeted at supporting efforts at preventing, treating and strengthening systems on COVID-19 containment. It will address gaps in the systems through an institutionalized monitoring system which will be created to facilitate the prompt detection of service disruptions and will translate these findings into advocacy agenda and social mobilization strategies to improve service uptake and enhance the quality of services received by clients.
The CLM initiative is aimed at utilizing a data-driven approach to improve service delivery and client outcomes for end users of services at the facility and community levels. The CLM will enhance knowledge and awareness among community members on COVID-19/ATM and health, build capacity of community networks to increase COVID-19 case findings, active case search and contact tracing and follow up for testing campaigns; facilitate co-monitoring of HIV, TB and malaria with COVID-19 at community level to determine access, availability, accessibility, affordability and quality of services; and link the findings to the advocacy agenda and accountability platforms to enable targeted action at local, state and national level. The ATM Network will work in a total of 18 states in year 2022 & 2023.
