UNICEF works in some of the world’s toughest places, to reach the world’s most disadvantaged children. To save their lives. To defend their rights. To help them fulfill their potential.

Across 190 countries and territories, we work for every child, everywhere, every day, to build a better world for everyone.

And we never give up.

 

1.  Background

UNICEF, Zimbabwe under its WASH Programme aims to strengthen national capacity to legislate, coordinate, plan and monitor scaling-up of rights and gender-sensitive interventions to promote safe drinking water, adequate sanitation and good practices. One of the key components is to ensure that there is accurate and reliable data to guide decision making.

Over the past year, UNICEF has supported the government in collecting baseline and endline WASH data from communities in 45 districts supported through the Rural WASH Program (RWP) surveys as well as monthly reporting from the districts. There is now need for dedicated support to rigorously analyze data to support donor reporting and help guide the final phase of the RWP in 12 new Districts. In addition, data on WASH in Health Centers nationwide is available through the Vital Medicines Availability and Health Services (VMAHS) Survey which has been conducted every quarter since 2014 and though it contains some WASH data this has not been properly analyzed yet. Finally, WASH in Education data is available through the Education Management Information System but not comprehensively reviewed.  An analysis of this data will provide insights in the WASH situation in communities, health centers as well as in schools.  The data obtained from this analysis will guide obtaining baseline values for WASH SDG indicators. In addition, a critical review of the data being submitted by 45 districts under the Rural WASH Project will help improve the data quality. The SSA will support the M&E specialist who is dedicated to currently strengthening the WASH monitoring (RWIMS and SNR) systems. The process will also work with and help Government to better plan upcoming WASH interventions as well as seeing how to strengthen the WASH evidence base for the sector in Zimbabwe.

UNCEF seeks to engage a skilled individual consultant to provide specialized technical support and independent third-party checks for the secondary analysis of data within the WASH section.
