Contraceptive Security Indicators Data Collection Specialist at CHEMONICS

Chemonics seeks a short-term consultant to serve as Contraceptive Security Indicators Data Collection Specialist for the USAID Global Health Supply Chain Program – Procurement and Supply Management (GHSC-PSM) project. GHSC-PSM is the primary vehicle through which USAID 1) procures and provides health commodities, 2) provides technical assistance to improve partner countries’ management of the supply chain, and 3) collaborates with key international stakeholders to support global health initiatives.

The consultant will support contraceptive security activities under the GHSC-PSM Population and Reproductive Health (PRH) TO (TO3). The globally recognized concept of contraceptive security (CS) is the condition where everyone is able to choose, obtain, and use a wide range of high-quality and affordable contraceptive methods, when they need them, for family planning and the prevention of sexually transmitted diseases. Multiple factors across several sectors contribute to the availability and accessibility of contraceptives within countries, including political commitment, financial capital, partner coordination, capacity, client demand and utilization, product quality, and commodity availability. This year, we are also interested in learning about how the COVID-19 pandemic has affected access to family planning and have added a short section on that subject.

GHSC-PSM continues to conduct the Contraceptive Security Indicators Survey every other year, following on USAID’s collection of this data since 2010. GHSC-PSM last conducted the survey in 2019 and received surveys from 43 countries, as well as an additional 7 countries in Latin America and the Caribbean in 2020 through our partner, ForoLAC, a working group of the Reproductive Health Supplies Coalition (RHSC). This year, GHSC-PSM is disseminating the survey to approximately 50 countries, including both GHSC-PSM presence and non-presence countries. Once collected, data will be analyzed and disseminated to various audiences and stakeholders to support program management and advocacy efforts in each country and globally.

The consultant will lead the data collection of the 2021 Contraceptive Security Indicators Survey in Honduras. The survey is comprised of qualitative and quantitative questions divided into the following eight sections:

  1. Leadership and Coordination
  2. Finance and Procurement
  3. Commodities
  4. Policies
  5. Supply Chain
  6. Quality
  7. Private Sector
  8. Impact of the COVID-19 pandemic

Each section and its accompanying indicators, their purpose, and data collection methodology are explained in the Data Collection and Usage Manual (which will be provided to the consultant). Respondents are requested to answer the questions through a combination of drop-down menus and free text spaces in the Excel questionnaire, as well as selecting the most accurate description of the data source used in the columns on the right. The data should come primarily from key informant interviews, including key personnel from the health ministry, members of the national committee that works on contraceptive security, donors such as UNFPA and USAID, private sector representatives such as pharmacists, distributors, or nurse/midwives’ associations, and others. A detailed list of key informants and other data sources can be found in Annex A of the Data Collection and Usage Manual. Sample key informant questionnaires can be found in Annex B.
