The overall purpose of this assignment is to assist the Country Office and MoH to conduct the knowledge, attitude and practice survey on birth registration in Liberia.

 

Basic Objectives of Consultancy/Contractor Services:

Basic objectives of consultancy/contractor (assignment) services (2-5 Objectives).

Methodology:

The study will employ a mixed method of quantitative and qualitative research methods for primary data collection. The approaches will be informed by the research objectives, which will require in-depth understanding of knowledge, attitudes and practices, at the same time as providing measurable statistics.

The contractor will be requested to develop a systematic survey methodology and implement it. The methodology will include the design of study methods, sampling strategy and the development of study instruments (questionnaires and tools). Also, the methodology needs to provide estimated time and cost required for the survey.

The contractor is also requested to develop appropriate research instrument for the informative qualitative study. It is anticipated that both In-Depth Interviews (face to face) and Focus Group Discussions will be conducted with the targeted respondents. This will entail development of moderation guides and interview guides/questionnaires.

 Scope, time and coverage and management of the Study:

The survey should assess both rights holders, i.e parents and other caregivers and duty bearers, whom are responsible to refer, certify and register children birth under 13 years old which is free of charge by the government of Liberia.  The study will be conducted in four counties (Grand Gedeh, Nimba, Bong and Lofa Counties).

This KAP survey will be a joint study with the Ministry of Health and UNICEF Liberia. The consultant will work through the Ministry of Health and closely with the UNICEF Child Protection Officer (Birth registration focal point) who will lead and follow up on this contract, with the support of the Communication for Development Specialist and overall guidance from the Child Protection Chief.
