WORLD HEALTH ORGANISATION (WHO) – CONSULTANCY OPPORTUNITY NEW!

DATE POSTED : July 25, 2017

Title: National Consultant in Social Science
Contract type: Consultant
Duration of contract: 3 months

OBJECTIVES OF THE PROGRAMME
The responsibility for deciding whether to introduce a new vaccine rests with the national Government. To encourage the strengthening of national capacity to formulate evidence-based policies around vaccine introduction, the Global Vaccine Action Plan 2011-2020 recommended that all countries create or strengthen independent national immunization technical advisory groups (NITAGs) and in 2010 the World Health Organization (WHO) published guidance for NITAGs. Most industrialized and some developing countries rely
on evidence-based recommendations from a NITAG. However, it is not clear to what extent NITAGs are integrated into the policy process.

The Republic of South Africa (RSA) was selected for a qualitative assessment to understand the contextual adaptation of the structure and function of their NITAG, called the National Advisory Group for Immunization (NAGI), and its integration into the policy process that have led to successful immunization policy in countries with the most recent vaccine introduction. In addition, linkages between the NAGI and the National Certification Commission for the Eradication of Poliomyelitis (NCC) in the context of the transition of polio assets will be explored. The work will be a collaboration between the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), the World Health Organization (WHO), and the Ministry of Health RSA.

Data collection methods for this assessment will include a document review/abstraction and semi-structured indepth interviews with key informants in the policy process. To assist with planning as well as collection, coding, and analysis of qualitative data, two national consultants with expertise in social science are needed.
