Purpose

Support

Background & rationale

Rationale
When
emergencies arise, such as new epidemics or pandemics, communities need
timely, accurate, up-to-date information they can trust. Reaching
communities can be a challenge and it’s compounded by fears of the
unknown, unfounded rumors and misinformation and requests to behave in
new ways. Risk Communication and Community Engagement (RCCE) focuses on
informing and engaging the public on how to reduce their risk and better
protect themselves. RCCE uses strategic behavior change approaches to
motivate action. Importantly, tailored RCCE intervention facilitate and
promote the engagement and support for communities to create and execute
plans to control outbreaks based on their local context. The presence
of the International Consultant will support RCCE activities on
COVID-19, Cholera, Leptospirosis, and any other emerging outbreaks. The
Consultant will support strengthening RCCE mechanisms and structures at
national and sub-national level.

Scope of work:
This assignment is expected to start from 1 September 2022 for a period of 6 months and final reports will be submitted.
The consultant under the guidance of the SBC-RCCE Specialist will support RCCE activities in Tanzania.
