Social Solutions International, Inc. (Social Solutions), through the Coordinating Implementation Research to Communicate Learning and Evidence (CIRCLE) Project, will be implementing a four-year Developmental Evaluation (DE) of USAID/Tanzania’s Boresha Afya Project.
The USAID Boresha Afya project aims to support the Government of Tanzania (GoT) to increase access to high quality, comprehensive and integrated health services, particularly for women and youth. The project is implemented in three zones of Tanzania, namely Lake/Western Zone, North/Central Zone, and Southern Zone.
The purpose of the DE is to inform, support, and evaluate the innovative and adaptive development of health service integration in the three zones of USAID Boresha Afya. The DE will support innovative, dynamic implementation by exploring evaluative questions, as implementation proceeds, and by routinely gathering and reporting evaluative data to provide the implementers and other key stakeholders with timely feedback on the results of implementation efforts. The DE team will work closely with USAID, implementing partners, and the Government of Tanzania (GOT) to assess key indicators of health service integration. These will include service quality from the points of view of patients, providers, and managers; health-service utilization; and efficiency. The DE seeks to enhance the impact of the USAID Boresha Afya project by providing timely feedback to make course corrections, in order to increase uptake, efficiency, and quality of integrated health services.
Social Solutions/CIRCLE Project seeks a short-term Developmental Evaluation Design Consultant who will be responsible for developing the design (evaluation plan) of the DE in consultation with USAID/Tanzania, implementing partners and the GoT. The consultant will be based in Dar es Salaam, Tanzania for the duration of the consultancy (up to 90 days, beginning in September 2017) but may also travel locally to the zones of the USAID Boresha Afya project.
