Jhpiego, an Affiliate of Johns Hopkins University is a global leader in improving healthcare services for women and their families. The Government of Nigeria’s Rural Access and Mobility Project (RAAMP) has awarded Jhpiego, a World Bank-funded contract to implement a mapping of Gender-Based Violence (GBV) services in the states of Akwa-Ibom, Bauchi and Ogun. The overarching RAAMP project is aimed at rehabilitating rural roads and river crossings throughout these three states. The World Bank and Government of Nigeria recognize that the influx of construction workers into already-destabilized communities within these states exacerbates the risk of GBV, in both public and private places, by increasing trafficking, sex work and forced marriage.
Hence, the goal of the GBV services assessment and mapping is to minimize and mitigate the potential risks of GBV that may arise during implementation of the RAAMP project. To this end, Jhpiego will profile the range of existing GBV services, as well as potential barriers to care, to improve availability and coordination of GBV services in the targeted states. The technical assistance provided to RAAMP by Jhpiego also includes improving the referral system and developing a forum for sharing information.In order to effectively undertake the above tasks, Jhpiego seeks to hire qualified and experienced professionals to carry out the under-listed short term consultancy services
