Job Title: Creative Consultant, Maternal and Child Survival Programme (MCSP)
Location
: Abuja
Background
USAID’s Maternal and Child Survival Program (MCSP) in Nigeria is focused on improving the quality of maternal, newborn and child health at facility-level in Kogi and Ebonyi States. In July 2017 MCSP, in partnership with the London School of Hygiene & Tropical Medicine, conducted a study to identify the behavioral barriers and motivators to practicing appropriate hygiene during the highest risk period for both newborn sepsis and puerperal sepsis in mothers, the period from the onset of labor through the first two days of life. With the findings from this study, MCSP aims to develop and pilot a set of WASH activities aimed at improving hygiene practices of health care staff and caregivers from the onset of labor through the first two days of life.
Concurrently, MCSP plans to examine the resource, management, staffing, and behaviors and protocol needs to achieve optimal WASH/infection prevention control (IPC) within inpatient newborn care and post-natal wards. MCSP will develop WASH-IPC guidelines (and corresponding activities) and pilot test the aforementioned draft indicators and activities for inpatient newborn care in facilities. The results from the pilot tests will then inform the integration of newborn care area hygiene in MCSP Nigeria’s broader maternal, newborn and child health, quality of care and WASH activities.
Overview of Assigned Tasks
  • The Consultant will be tasked with developing and refining hygiene promotional print products for use in delivery rooms and inpatient newborn care spaces. Materials will target nurse, midwives, doctors, parents, cleaners, and other caregivers
  • The Consultant will report to the Senior Newborn Health Advisor for MCSP Nigeria, but will work in close collaboration with other MCSP maternal, newborn, and service and quality improvement staff members in both Abuja, Ebonyi and Kogi states and Washington DC
The assigned tasks and deliverables for this scope of work include:
Initial Print Product Development:
  • MCSP will provide the consultant with a list of draft messages and images that will inform the design of print materials. MCSP may provide up to three rounds of comments for further print material refinements during this stage of the process
  • The Consultant will be expected to draft initial images that reflect Nigerian health care facility environments with guidance provided by MCSP. Draft images will be submitted to MCSP for review and comment. Images must convey the social and emotional motivators that MCSP seeks to embed within the images and messaging.
  • At the end of this period, the Consultant will be expected to submit 9 materials for field testing (3 materials for delivery rooms and 6 materials for inpatient newborn care spaces). MCSP staff will then field test the materials during the month of May 2018. Feedback will be documented and submitted to the consultant for further material refinement.

Print Product Refinement and Finalization:
  • Upon receipt of the field-testing results, the Consultant is expected to make refinements to the print products and submit for MCSP review. MCSP may provide up to three rounds of feedback for further refinement. Upon MCSP approval, the print products will be considered final
  • Final print product files will then be submitted to MCSP.

  • Draft 2 of 9 print products incorporating MCSP feedback
  • Draft 3 of 9 print products incorporating MCSP feedback for pre-testing
  • Draft 4 of 9 print products incorporating MCSP feedback
  • Draft 5 of 9 print products incorporating MCSP feedback
