In addition, the consultant will provide coordination support to USAID MCHN’s technical assistance work in Kampala to strengthen a harmonized and efficient approach to the implementation of Division and site-level RMNCAH, Nutrition, Family Planning, QI, and HMIS strengthening activities.

Roles and Responsibilities
• Work closely with the Division Family Planning focal persons and other family planning actors in Kampala to implement and scale up evidence-based high-impact post-partum family planning (PPFP) programming for facility-and community-level interventions, based on local and global best practices.

• Conduct annual refresher training on the U.S. Family Planning and Abortion legislative and policy requirements that govern U.S. foreign assistance targeting MCHN and sub-grantee CSOs’ staff, and health workers at supported health facilities.
• Coordinate Division and site-level technical support activities implemented by USAID MCHN teams, ensuring a coordinated and harmonized approach to avoid duplication and instead promote synergy, cross-leveraging, and convergence.
• Provide technical support for the integration of Gender, Adolescent, Youth, and marginalized groups’ interests and concerns across the MCHN and Postpartum Family Planning programming and service delivery at the health facility level.
• Closely work with the MEL team to implement division and site-level HMIS strengthening activities including data verification exercises, performance review meetings, and activities aimed at increasing routine data utilization to guide the investment of efforts.
• Represent the USAID MCHN Activity at relevant meetings or other events as may be appropriate.
• Perform other duties as may be assigned by and agreed upon with the supervisor.

Requirements/ Qualifications
• Bachelor of Nursing, Public Health, or health-related disciplines. Possession of a Master of Public Health will be an added advantage.
• A minimum of 3 years of experience in implementing district-led programming approaches to build capacity and provide technical and logistical support for improved access and utilization of family planning services in Uganda.
• Knowledge of the current national and international family planning policies and guidelines.
• Demonstrated skills in collaborative engagement, program planning, use of CQI to improve systems and processes, and knowledge management.
• Ability to work independently in a complex environment, and manage high-volume, fast-paced workflow.
• Previous experience in a USAID-funded program is an added advantage.
