Baseline Survey on Improving Maternal, Newborn and Child Survival in Kenya and Liberia

RfP for Baseline Survey on Health and Food Security in Kenya and Liberia

Request for Proposal for Baseline Survey on
Improving Maternal, Newborn and Child Survival in Kenya and Liberia
And Improving resiliency of communities to chronic drought in Kenya

Kenya and Liberia rank among countries with high maternal, neonatal and child mortality. National Red Cross Societies in Kenya (KRCS) and Liberia (LNRCS), supported by Canadian Red Cross Society (CRCS), will work with communities and Ministries of Health (MoH) to scale-up delivery of basic health services to poor, hard-to-access rural communities to address these issues. In Kenya, communities in West and East Pokot will also be prepared, through community-based planning, capacity building, and actions (water and sanitation, livelihood diversification and income generating activities), to mitigate drought risks, improving long-term food security. In addition to these maternal, newborn, child health and food security programs, there is also the MNCH program supported by CRCS in Mali. The baseline survey data of these three countries are expected to be comparable. The design is a multi-stage design with stratification (regions) and clustering (villages), with additional levels of sampling units (PSU-health districts, SSU-health areas). The baseline survey in Mali is ongoing and the surveys to be done under this request for proposal are expected to replicate the existing survey protocol in Mali.

• Experience in conducting at least one survey in maternal, newborn and child health issues that requires comparable methodology across several countries.
