Seeking Technical Experts

The High Impact Practices in Family Planning (HIP) Partnership is looking for technical experts to do a full update on the HIPs briefs on Mobile Outreach Services, Educating Girls, and Community Health Workers.  The members of the technical expert groups work with a writer who, with guidance and input from the experts, writes the brief.  The brief development process can be found here.

We seek experts with research and program implementation experience.  Ideal skills are below.

  • Mobile Outreach Services and Community Health Workers (CHWs): Experts with experience implementing and conducting research about both more-advanced large scale CHW programming as well as more nascent programs; community outreach, community mobilization, communication and outreach using CHWs and community leaders,  health provider capacity building for mobile service delivery (informed choice FP counseling, long-acting and reversible contraceptives, permanent methods, etc.),  
  • Educating Girls: Researchers and program implementers with experience working across sectors (education, health, and gender) with experience in positive youth development and/or work that addresses the social determinants of health. 

Each expert will serve as a volunteer on a small team of 5-6 experts and 1-2 members of the HIP Technical Advisory Group (TAG) to update one HIP brief over a two year period. The level of effort will be highest during 2022 as the teams work with a professional writer to prepare the brief for review by the TAG in December. This includes required participation in a one day introductory virtual meeting in early May 2022 and a two-day virtual meeting in May/June 2022 to launch the process and regular meetings thereafter to finalize a draft. 

Selections will be made by the HIP Partnership Co-Sponsors: FP2030, IPPF, UNFPA, USAID,  and WHO/IBP, and BMGF. Applications are due March 11.
