Options Consultancy Services seeks a consultant to assess the capacity of a sample of Ward Development Committees (WDC) and propose a capacity development plan to address identified gaps.
The consultant will also help establish a State Led Accountability Mechanism (SLAM) in Kaduna state.
The consultancy will provide Lafiya programme and other key actors with a deeper understanding of the level of knowledge and functionality of Ward Development Committees (WDC), establish a State Led Accountability Mechanism (SLAM) in Kaduna and provide recommendations on addressing knowledge and capacity gaps in collaboration with relevant stakeholders.
The assignment will be used to provide a baseline on levels of capacity and functionality of WDCs and the newly established SLAM and will inform programme interventions to strengthen the SLAM and WDCs in advocacy and accountability on prioritisation of health investment for human capital development.
