AFEW International is launching an open call for consultants
AFEW International is launching an open Call for Consultants 2021.
With this call we aim to update and expand our database of international, regional, and national consultants for short- and medium-term engagements in the provision of diverse consultancy services to support our programmes.
The work of AFEW International is primarily focused on the region of Eastern Europe and Central Asia (EECA).
AFEW International is a non-governmental humanitarian organisation that strives to promote health, and advocates for increased access to prevention, treatment, and care for major public health concerns such as HIV, tuberculosis, COVID-19, viral hepatitis, and sexual and reproductive health and rights.
AFEW International is working with and for “key populations” (LGBTIQ and men who have sex with men, people who use drugs, sex workers, people living with HIV, (ex-)prisoners, (labour) migrants, vulnerable youth and adolescents). By providing support and empowering communities and civil society organisations in Eastern Europe and Central Asia (EECA), we contribute to better access to good quality health services for all, including people whose access is denied due to stigma and discrimination.
With a small team based in Amsterdam, we coordinate the AFEW Partnership, a regional network of civil society organisations: AFEW-Kazakhstan, AFEW-Kyrgyzstan, AFEW-Russia, AFEW-Ukraine and AFEW International.
We are now looking for external expertise or consultancy on a broad range of topics, including:
- Advocacy and Public Affairs
- Social Media Management
- Project development
- Project management and implementation
- Project monitoring and evaluation (M&E, MEAL, PMEL)
- Knowledge Management and E-learning
- Technical Expertise:
- HIV/AIDS (treatment, prevention, care)
- TB (treatment, prevention, care)
- COVID-19 (treatment, prevention, care)
- STIs and viral hepatitis (treatment, prevention, care)
- Care in prisons / closed settings
- Capacity building of NGOs
- Human rights monitoring
- Stigma & Discrimination
- Training (audiences: medical professionals, policy makers, NGOs)
If the need for external expertise arises, AFEW International will develop a Terms of Reference and select, from the database of consultants, those consultants who demonstrably offer the most beneficial combination of skills, quality, availability, and value for money.
Consultants are now invited to apply for inclusion in the database.
Applications will be processed on a rolling basis. A first selection for inclusion in the consultancy database will be made starting in the week of 5 April, 2021.
We regret to inform that incomplete forms cannot be taken into consideration.
