For every child,

Purpose of Activity/Assignment:

The adaptation of mWater and other data management tools to improve program monitoring for UNICEF Guinea Bissau brought to light numerous possibilities of application. The progressive use of these tools for now program monitoring triggered a raising call for its use to support project and sector statistics e.g., EMIS for the Ministry of Education. These tools, if effectively used, are intended to increase the efficiency of service delivery to the population. It is the case of the use of mWater tools for statistics and monitoring of vaccines, vaccination coverage and community vaccination promotion.

This consultancy aims to deliver data support directly to counterparts and partners at the subnational level, more specifically to health area managers and school inspectors. The Field Data Consultant will also provide training and support during the data collection period ensuring quality and accuracy.

The Field Data Consultant is also expected to support partner reporting on KRC#8 indicators during the implementation of sanitation programs.

The proposed consultancy is necessary to enable UNICEF Guinea Bissau to expand its support for the use of smart data collection tools including water. On the other hand, it aimed to address the data quality control and visualization gap since it will allow transferring data review and visualisation competencies. Consequently, this action is expected to enhance ownership in the health and education regional offices.
