UNFPA South Africa is implementing its fifth Country Programme which started in June 2020 and contributes to the achievement of UNFPA’s transformative results of ending unmet need for family planning, ending preventable maternal deaths, ending gender-based violence and sexual transmission of HIV, and to achieving national commitments to accelerate implementation of the International Conference on Population and Development (ICPD) Programme of Action.

The Gender Dynamics Pillar of the Country Programme is focused on two results: (a) Strengthened civil society and community mobilization to eliminate discriminatory gender and sociocultural norms affecting women and girls; and (b) Increased multi-sectoral capacity at national and provincial levels to prevent and respond to GBV. To deliver its Country Programme, UNFPA prioritizes interventions focused on evidence-based policy dialogue, advocacy and knowledge management to guide scaling-up of best practice models, while targeted capacity development at national and provincial levels advances reaching those furthest behind. UNFPA operates its Country Programme at national and also provincial levels, targeting three provinces: Kwa-Zulu Natal, Eastern Cape and Limpopo.

The consultancy will support UNFPA South Africa by documenting select methodologies and approaches to gender equality, GBV prevention and community engagement on social norms change for further advocacy and scale-up. The consultant will also be requested to document select case studies within the scope of GBV services integration in the health system which are being piloted by UNFPA and partners in three key districts.

Closing date 22 October
