UNFPA South Africa has supported the Department of Health to implement the integration of Sexual Reproductive Health and Rights (SRHR), HIV and Sexual Gender-based Violence (SGBV) services under the 2gether 4 SRHR programme. The programme aims to improve the SRHR of all people in East and Southern Africa (ESA), particularly adolescent girls, young people and key populations.

The scope of the programme in South Africa is to strengthen the provision of integrated SRHR, HIV and SGBV services focusing on two UNFPA supported provinces; the Eastern Cape (EC) and Kwa-Zulu Natal (KZN). Three districts in these provinces were identified to have the least progressing indicators on poverty, maternal mortality, HIV and AIDS prevalence and gender based violence, including sexual violence and harmful cultural practices. These were Alfred Nzo and OR Tambo districts in the Eastern Cape and uThukela district in KwaZulu-Natal.

In the inception phase, 10 clinics were supported in the Eastern Cape’s districts and five clinics in KwaZulu-Natal. A baseline assessment was undertaken when the programme commenced. Thus the purpose of this consultancy is to conduct an endline review in the 10 facilities in the Eastern Cape and 5 in KwaZulu-Natal. The end-line review will collect data against the same indicators that data was collected for at Baseline for the interpretation of observed changes and impact of the programme. The consultancy also makes inferences to the effectiveness and overall performance of the programme objectives. The consultancy will also include the close out workshop to be undertaken with national stakeholders.
