About the Consultancy Service

  • IRC is leading a research study in Central African Republic (CAR) and Nigeria that aims to examine practices and experiences of care along the referral pathway from BEmONC to CEmONC facilities and identify recommendations for strengthening referrals and improving experiences of care for clients, particularly those seeking care for obstetric complications.
  • One of the objectives of this study, which began in September 2022, is to assess referral structure and capacity at BEmONC and CEmONC facilities in order to understand readiness to provide adequate counseling and services to women and girls. 

The Purpose of the Assignment

  • To support with undertaking formative work and ultimately writing country reports that summarize the landscape and identify key implications for the sector.

The Specific Objectives
Specifically, the formative work entails:

  • A desk review: of referral protocols and standard operating procedures (SOPs) from IRC and implementing partners, and national- or sub-national level policies and protocols 
  • Reviews of secondary data from health information systems: extract and analyze data from relevant health information systems at the national and sub-national levels (local DHIS or HMIS systems) to capture population size, rates of facility deliveries, birth rates and related mortality rates, and caesarian section rates.
  • Key informant interviews: (approximately 10 per country) will be conducted with partner program managers and supervisors, MoH representatives, and other stakeholders to capture their perceptions of and experiences with how well referral pathways are operating, and suspected barriers and facilitators to careseeking and referral adherence.

Duration of the Consultancy Service:

Master Plan:

  • The country reports that emerge from these practicums will inform the design of the research study, including facility site selection, key informant interview guides, and referral audits.
  • The study will result in recommendations to strengthen the referral pathway so as to improve quality of care, access to care, timeliness of care, and health outcomes – and these recommendations will be first informed by the formative work undertaken by the students.
  • Examples of work the intern could accomplish during the placement (Please give a clear sense of the type of work that a student could expect to do, recognizing that student and preceptor may re-negotiate specific details as the internship experience unfolds):
