In September 2016, a new DFID Mozambique programme ‘Health Transitions’ was approved. The purpose of the programme will be to support health system reforms for improved reproductive, maternal, neonatal, child and adolescent health (RMNCAH) in Mozambique. The programme will achieve this through three main components: 1. Supply side support to strengthen health policy and service delivery Provide technical and financial support through a UN Consortium (consisting of UNFPA, UNICEF and WHO) to strengthen health systems for improved RMNCAH delivery. Management and policy support will be provided at the central level while at the sub-national level up to three provinces will be supported to deliver quality health services in communities and health centres. The support which should not be any larger than 23 500 000 GBP should complement the Global Financing Facility, a new global financing platform for RMNCAH for which Mozambique becomes eligible in June 2017. 2. Demand side support to generate demand for family planning Provide up to 5 500 000 GB to create an enabling environment for adolescents in rural areas to be able to delay or space pregnancy. This is likely to include innovative approaches such as work on social communications to address behaviours around sexual and reproductive health as well as engaging with the market on family planning services. This second component is the focus of these terms of reference and this contract opportunity. 3. Coordination and oversight of UK investments in the health sector The total UK footprint in the sector is bigger than our bilateral programme. We will work to ensure that there is increased coordination across UK investments in health whenever possible. We also want to align better with other stakeholders in the sector to reduce duplication and ensure that we get the most out of our investments. This component which will be up to 3 300 000 GB will include an independent assessment of the overall programme to ensure that lessons feed into ongoing implementation. This call for competition focuses exclusively on component 2: Demand side support to generate demand for family planning. DFID is now seeking a Service Provider to take forward component (ii) above on support to building demand for and access to family planning especially for adolescents. Given that this component is framed within a wider three year (therefore short term) health sector programme and UK spending round (until March 2020), we expect this FP component to pilot innovative and, or catalytic approach/es with potential for scale up and integration into longer term programming in future. Therefore the SP shall commit to being fully prepared in the event any decision is made to scale up (increase) or scale down (decrease) the scope of the programme.
