    Consultant - Review and Adaptation of the ASRH&R Curricula


    Job type: Temporary

    Save the Children (SC) Nigeria is implementing Reaching and Empowering Adolescents to make informed Choices for their Health (REACH) in Gombe, Katsina and Zamfara states in Northern Nigeria. The three year project specifically targets states with some of the worst indicators for adolescents, especially girls, and will focus on rural and hard to reach communities where rates of early marriage, early childbearing, low educational attainment and discriminatory social and gender norms significantly affect the ability of adolescent girls and boys to make decisions and access services to protect and improve their sexual and reproductive health (SRH).

    REACH project aims to improve access to high quality, gender-responsive and adolescent-friendly SRH services for unmarried and married adolescent girls and boys; increase the decision-making of married and unmarried girls about their SRH and rights; and improve the integration of civil society contributions and evidence-based best practices in ASRHR policy design and implementation at local and state levels.

    REACH will also contribute to Sustainable Development Goal (SDG) 3 (ensure universal access to ASRH services, including FP information and education, and integration of RH into national strategies and programmes); and SDG 5 (achieving gender equality and empowering all women and girls), by:

    • Improving access to high quality, gender-sensitive and adolescent-friendly SRH services for unmarried and married adolescent girls and boys; 
    • Increasing the decision-making of married and unmarried adolescent girls about their own SRHR; and
    • Improving the integration of civil society contributions and evidence-based best practices in ASRHR policy design and implementation at local and state levels.

    One major step towards the advancement of project activities is to incorporate gender-responsive approaches into existing FMOH training manuals, guidelines, standards of practice/protocols and job aids on adolescent sexual and reproductive health and rights (ASRH&R) to ensure inclusiveness.
