 POSITION TITLE: Consultant  



DURATION OF CONTRACT: 7 days (5 days training plus 2 days preparation and report submission)


The Community HIV Care and Treatment (CHCT) activity is a USAID/PEPFAR-funded program that has been implemented in selected community settings of Ethiopia since June 2018. Project HOPE Ethiopia (PHE) was a prime partner and had direct service delivery (DSD) role in the initial three years of implementation. Beginning of fiscal year 2021, its major role was shifted to providing technical assistance (TA) to prime local implementing partners (LIPs) operating in PEPFAR-supported regions.

The goal of CHCT is to accelerate and sustain the HIV/AIDS epidemic control through the delivery of high impact HIV services to achieve the national 95-95-95 treatment targets.

Electronic case management, data collection, analysis, visualization, and reporting are among the essential TA services that Project HOPE provides to over 32 local and international implementing partner organizations. In this regard, PHE has established the unified data system (UDS) to harmonize the case management, data gathering, and reporting procedures of community implementing partners.

In UDS/CommCare, new features are continuously built and integrated to the system. Currently, PHE plans to integrate the geographic information system (GIS) with UDS/CommCare. Developers and IT experts at PHE will activate and upgrade the system to collect GPS coordinates in alignment with the location hierarchy. The CommCare database will be further linked to Power BI for data analyses and visualization of geospatial or spatiotemporal information on interactive GIS maps.


Scope of Work

Project HOPE Ethiopia is looking to recruit a consultant or private company to train and equip its M&E/Digital Health (DH) staff with basic skills of GIS data collection, storage, analysis, and visualization using the ARC GIS software. In this assignment, the consultant is expected to focus on the application of GIS on community-based HIV prevention, care, and treatment (CHCT) activities. The consultant will develop a training curriculum and practical sessions based on the local database of the CHCT activities. Integration of GIS with mobile device-based electronic case management or data gathering platforms, such as CommCare, and with data visualization software, such as Power BI, is part of the consultancy work.

The consultant must develop resource materials (workbook, slide deck, software, datasets, exercises, etc...) for presentations and practical sessions. Additionally, the consultant will guide the exercises on various GIS data analytic approaches using the ARC GIS software.

The consultant shall communicate with the MERL Director or Digital Health Advisor to identify topics of interest and the exercises.
