A.

UNFPA MID TERM REVIEW OF THE 7TH COUNTRY PROGRAMME

UNFPA, United Nations Population Fund, is the world's largest international source of funding for population and reproductive health programmes. UNFPA works with governments and non-governmental organizations in over 150 countries as the lead UN agency for delivering a world where every pregnancy is wanted, every birth is safe, and every young person's potential is fulfilled. UNFPA assists countries to formulate population policies, programmes and strategies in support of sustainable development.

The 7th Country Population Programme (CP7) of UNFPA in Ghana began its cycle in 2018 and will end in December 2022. The Country Programme was developed by UNFPA in partnership with the government and other stakeholders; and was submitted to the UNFPA Executive Board on September 2017 for approval.

The Mid-Term Review (MTR) is being conducted to assess programme results, review the strategies and provide forward looking recommendations that will improve the effectiveness of the CP7 and provide initial direction for the next Country Programme. It will also examine the relevance, suitability and appropriateness of the initial objectives and strategies set at the programme design stage.

Mid-Term Evaluation of the United Nations Joint Programme on Empowering Adolescent Girls through Improved Access to Reproductive Health Education and Rights-Based Quality Sexual and Reproductive Health Services in Ghana

UNFPA and UNICEF are International development agencies working jointly with national and international partners towards the execution of their mandates. UNFPA works towards making a world where every pregnancy is wanted, every birth is safe, and every young person's potential is fulfilled. UNICEF’s mandate is to ensure that the world becomes a place where the rights of every child are realised and protected; that their basic needs are met, and they are provided with opportunities which will enable them to reach their full potential.

In January 2018, the Government of Canada through Global Affairs Canada, approved a joint proposal between UNFPA and UNICEF on strengthening sexual and reproductive health and rights of young people through scaling up reproductive health education in Ghana. The Joint programme entitled “Empowering Adolescent Girls through Improved Access to Reproductive Health Education and Rights-Based Quality Sexual and Reproductive Health Services in Ghana” targets as primary beneficiaries, adolescent girls 10 -19 years in and out of school, married and unmarried. The secondary beneficiaries will be girls aged 20-24 years. Special attention will be given to vulnerable girls such as Kayayei (migrant girls) and those living with disabilities including those in humanitarian situations (refugee camps). Again, other beneficiaries will include communities, health workers, men and boys and allied stakeholders. The Joint programme among others also aims at reaching 500,000 young people 10-24 years with Reproductive Health information and education; 25,000 adolescents aged 10-19 years with family planning services; 150,000 women 15-49 years with modern contraceptives; 5000 adolescent girls 10-19 years through mentorship programmes; and 100,000 adolescents 10-19 years with information on sexual and reproductive health through social media platforms.

In support of the above assignments UNFPA is hiring the services of a national consultant/institution to conduct a mid-term review of the 7th Country Programme (CPD7). Concurrently, UNFPA and UNICEF are also hiring the services of a consultant to conduct a mid-term review of the United Nations Joint Programme on Empowering Adolescent Girls through Improved Access to Reproductive Health Education and Rights-Based Quality Sexual and Reproductive Health Services in Ghana (AGP)

The two assignments overlap as the UNFPA component of the AGP is also a part of the CPD7. The consultants/institution will thus be required to harmonise methodologies and data collection tools with the view of collecting information from the same UNFPA and UNICEF implementing partners. In response to the objectives of each assignment. The Consultants will detail how they intend to do this in their inception report. In addition, the consultants will produce two separate MTR reports (one for the AGP and the other CPD 7) and conduct two different validation meetings.
