Universal access to health and care services for NCDs by older men and women in Tanzania

Globally, developing countries are facing a double challenge – number of new infections of communicable diseases (CD) remains high, and at the same time the prevalence of no communicable diseases (NCDs) is rising fast.

Tanzania Health Sector Strategic Plan 2015-2020 recognises this epidemiological transition. The plan reinforces the government’s commitment to provision of quality HIV and AIDS programmes, prevention and control of malaria, and early detection and treatment of tuberculosis and leprosy. It also calls for health facilities to “step up the diagnostic and therapeutic capacities for NCDs”.

However, there is a risk that older men and women might not benefit from these efforts.

AARP and HelpAge International are looking for national experts to assess access to quality affordable health services and care in relation to NCDs by older people in Tanzania. Specifically to assess:

i. Universal health coverage (services package, coverage, affordability and quality) in relation to NCDs in relation to health and care needs of older people;

ii. Frameworks, policies, and accountability mechanisms to support realisation of UHC in the context of NCDs

iii. Progress towards UHC: prioritising and fast tracking needs of marginalised groups of older adults

The consultant(s) is also to make recommendations in terms of actions required to facilitate progress towards UHC.

The consultancy is proposed to start on July 9, 2018 and to be completed by 6 January, 2019 or earlier.

The ideal consultant(s) will have an advanced degree(s) in relevant field(s), in-depth familiarity with literature and debate on UHC, and health and care issues of older people in Tanzania, and experience of conducting quantitative research, literature review and/or similar studies.

Expression of Interest

Interested consultants are invited to submit an Expression of Interest (EOI) for delivery of the assignment by COB July 5, 2018 by email to Alex Mihnovits at amihnovits@helpage.org.

The short EOI (about 3-5 pages) should include:

1) Proposed methodology outlining:

a. specific research questions to be covered by the study

b. proposed analysis to answer these questions

c. list of datasets to be analysed

d. indicators to be assessed

e. report outline

f. comments on the TOR e.g. scope, gaps, etc.

2) Work plan including outputs/deliverables and time frames for each stage

3) Proposed budget. The maximum budget is USD20,000

4) Appendixes (not included in the 3-5 pages)

a. CV of the consultant(s)

b. Contact information for 2 professional references

c. Relevant studies previously produced (1-2)

Please, see Terms of Reference for the full description of the consultancy.
