The USAID 4Children project is seeking proposals for two pieces of work in violence against children (VAC) prevention.

CONSULTANCY: Developing an identification tool to facilitate the identification and support for children at risk of or experiencing violence in clinical care settings in sub-Saharan Africa

Maestral international, as part of the 4Children consortium, is seeking a highly qualified consulting team to develop a simple identification tool to enable health workers to identify children and adolescents who are at risk of or experiencing violence in HIV clinical settings.

The identification tools will be drafted and piloted for use in HIV clinical settings in low- and middle- income countries, specifically PEPFAR funded sites, but the tool should have applicability and be used trhoughout facilities across clinical settings, such as pediatric and MNCH clinics, outpatient, emergency and in-patient settings and adolescent-friendly health services.

The consultant or consulting team will be expected to draft a tool based on existing global evidence about identification of and response to all forms of violence, which is evidence-informed and safeguards children's best interests. The draft tool will be piloted in two sites in sub-Saharan Africa before finalization and dissemination.

The work will be overseen by 4Children in fulfillement of its approved 2017-18 workplan.

This consultancy will be conducted in parallel with a related consultancy: ''Developing training curriculum for integrating Violence against Children Prevention and Response Interventions within Clinical Settings''. The two pieces of work are complementary and 4Chidren will facilitate synergies between the two processes.

The deadline for proposals in Monday 30 October 2017.
