  • Since October 2016, Helen Keller International (HKI) and Effect: Hope are supporting Vitamin A Supplementation and deworming programs in 3 counties: Kilifi, Kwale and Siaya. The program focuses on supporting the County Health Management teams to plan, implement and monitor routine delivery of VAS and deworming (VAS+D) and Malezi Bora events. The project also entails a strong support to gender equity.

     

    Consultancy to support the final evaluation of the HKI every Child Thrives project in Kenya

     

    The project is organized in 4 streams:

    • Stream 1: Strengthening the local health care system by increasing the capacity of local community health workers (CHWs) and volunteers to implement an integrated NTD-MDA and Vitamin A supplementation program for boys and girls under 5. This will be accomplished through cascade training for these CHWs and volunteers using a comprehensive toolkit.
    • Stream 2: Increasing the coverage of vitamin A and de-worming for boys and girls under 5 using an existing community based Neglected Tropical Disease (NTD) Mass Drug Administration platform combined with micronutrient supplementation. This will include implementing community preparedness protocols to ensure all eligible children are included and all gender or disability related barriers are addressed.
    • Stream 3: Increasing knowledge and demand for vitamin A and de-worming through community engagement around vitamin A deficiency and the need for supplementation as well as de-worming in children ineligible for school-based programs. This will be accomplished through a participatory approach.
    • Stream 4: Ensuring equitable access to vitamin A and de-worming for all eligible boys and girls under 5 (6-59 months). This will be done by ensuring that all gender and disability based barriers to the program delivery are identified and addressed to maximize equitable program access.

    As the project ends in March 2020, a final evaluation of the project is required. HKI is therefore recruiting a consultant to support the design, implementation and reporting of this final evaluation.
