DREAMS M&E Specialist

Location: Windhoek, Namibia

Posting Date: 01/24/2018

Deadline Date: 02/09/2018

Starting Date: 02/01/2018

Description

The Namibian Ministry of Health and Social Services (MOHSS) is the custodian of health and social services and oversees, provides and regulates all public, private and non-governmental sectors in the provision of quality health and social services. USAID is a partner to the Ministry’s efforts and provides technical assistance, directly and through specialized local and international organizations, to support the Government of Namibia’s delivery of high quality, evidence-based, public health programs to all Namibians.

USAID/Namibia, as part of the USG DREAMS interagency team, is the lead USG agency for the provision of monitoring and evaluation (M&E) technical assistance to support DREAMS implementation and monitoring. USAID/Namibia has identified critical gaps in local capacity to monitor and evaluate adolescent girls and young women (AGYW) programming. This will have a major impact on DREAMS implementation if not addressed.

The primary objective of MEASURE Evaluation is to enable countries to strengthen their systems to generate high quality health information that is used for decision making at local, national and global levels. In Namibia, MEASURE Evaluation will provide technical assistance to the MOHSS and others implementing DREAMS activities to monitor and evaluate programs at the national and local levels.

The DREAMS M&E Specialist consultant will work closely with MEASURE Evaluation staff, based in South Africa, to support the National HIV Prevention Coordinator develop, roll out, and implement the M&E Framework for DREAMS in Namibia.
