Terms of Reference – Policy Mentoring International Consultant
Myanmar is facing a disease transition towards increasingly greater burdens from non-communicable diseases (NCDs), in contrast to burdens that were previously dominated by communicable diseases and maternal/neonatal and nutrition disorders. The health system in Myanmar requires assistance to respond effectively, and the government has set an ambitious goal of universal health coverage of health services for the whole population by 2030.
The purpose of this assignment is to provide UPH and UM2 with initial technical support and mentoring in the analysis and development of health policy for Myanmar, including an assessment of current policy development capacity at UPH.
Interested consultants are invited to submit an Expression of Interest (EOI) for delivery of the assignment. The short EOI (about 2-4 pages) should include:
1. Proposed methodology and any comments on this ToR and Outputs
2. Clear work plan including outputs/deliverables and detailed time frames (subject to start date agreed upon by consultant and HelpAge)
3. Total costs including daily rates and any additional costs anticipated
4. Appendixes (not included in the 2-4 pages)
a. CV of the consultant(s)
b. Contact information for 2 professional references
c. 1-2 relevant reports previously produced on policy analysis or development, if available
The costs of the air travel to Myanmar will be met by HelpAge and do not need to be included in the EOI budget. Selection of the consultant will be performed by a HelpAge / Thammasat University project committee and based on the experience of the consultant, the quality and relevance of the EOI, and the proposed budget, keeping in mind value for money within the resources available. Final negotiated terms and fees will be specified in the consultancy contract.
The deadline for submission is midnight 6 December 2015.
Please contact Ms Chitlekar Parintarakul at firstname.lastname@example.org for further information or to submit your EOI.
