Syria- Damascus

UNFPA in Syria is contributing that every woman and girl has the right to have access to affordable reproductive health care and be effectively protected from gender-based violence in developmental and Humanitarian contexts. UNFPA and its implementing partners (23 Implementing partners) are scaling up efforts to implement 4 components, namely: Reproductive health including maternal health and family planning, b) Gender including comprehensive GBV prevention and response, c) youth empowerment, and d) Population and demographic including the support of data generation and dissemination. UNFPA is supporting health facilities and the operation of outreach mobile teams, procurement of medical equipment and supplies, capacity building on RGH and GBV, operation of women and girls safe spaces, supporting youth skills and social integration and improving data collection and disseminations.

 

Beside increasing the effeteness, efficiency, and sustainability of the developmental and humanitarian assistance, UNFPA has been putting an emphasis on the quality improvement in all its programmes. Several actions were taken to understand the level of quality at both horizontal (geographic) and vertical (technical and thematic) but due to different reasons including the limited capacity and security considerations, these initiatives were not optimally implemented. The CO has recently been working at developing checklists to assess the level of the quality of services but it is still a draft. The current quality improvement checklists focus on the program and operation of both UNFPA and the implementing partners, highlighting the importance of system building and improvement as well as establishing a client feedback mechanism to get feedback from the beneficiaries. As such, UNFPA CO found appropriate to recruit a consultant to support the improvement of the quality of UNFPA program through:

 

-           Capacity building of concerned professionals through training and ToT

-           Preparation of quality improvement road map

-           Preparation and finalization of quality improvement system including tools and checklists

 

Under the guidance and supervision of the Deputy Representative, with daily working relation and follow up with the Assistant Representative, the Quality Improvement Consultant provides support/advice in all aspects related to improvement of the quality the 8th Country Programme components including the humanitarian response projects.

 

The quality improvement consultant demonstrates a client-oriented approach, tact and ability to work with people of different national and cultural backgrounds.
