  • Centre for Communication and Social Impact (CCSI) is a non-government organization focusing on the role of communication to impact health and social behaviour, build brands and lead in technical guidance.

    CCSI is seeking to engage qualified consultants as a Social Mobiliser Lead on a SBC project for Lagos, Nasarawa and River State. The consultants would be required to oversee community level activities

    Social Mobilization Lead

     

    Summary

    Post-partum women have the highest unmet need for family planning in Nigeria, with only 6% using any modern contraception 6 months after delivery, and most often do not have FP services readily available to them. Adolescent girls and young women also have a high unmet need for family planning.

    The project proposes to bridge the high unmet need for post-partum family planning services and among younger women by strengthening post pregnancy FP services targeting young women and first-time parents. These groups are often missed by the clinical health care system due to high rates of home deliveries. The project will build on previous experience of working with traditional birth attendants (TBAs) and Community Health Extension Workers (CHEWs) to reach these groups of women with home-based post-pregnancy family planning (PPFP) and build a strong referral system between the communities and facilities especially for post-abortion care (PAC).

    Three states of Lagos, Nasarawa and Rivers are targeted for this project in Nigeria because they have the highest population of women aged 15 – 24 years, high home delivery rates, high teenage pregnancy rates and a large proportion of pregnancies that end in abortion. Offering PPFP services at the community level could accelerate the pace towards the FP2020 goals and provide a model for replication in other states in Nigeria.

    The project will be implemented by a consortium of 3 organisations - Clinton Health Access Initiative (CHAI) Centre for Communication and Social Impact (CCSI), and Tulane University. Centre for Communication and Social Impact (CCSI) is charged with the mandate of conducting community level mobilization activities.

    • Coordinate and provide technical SBC support to a team of social mobilizers within LGAs in PPFP states

    • Track and document social mobilization activities at the state level
    • Coordinate social mobilizers for service delivery outreaches
