TERMS OF REFERENCE FOR ABORTION ACCOUNTABILITY PROJECT       ENDLINE EVALUATION
  1. Background
PPAG with funding from the Swedish Association for Sexuality Education (RFSU), the Sweden IPPF member Association, has been implementing a 5-year project aimed at ensuring that Comprehensive Abortion Care is accessible, affordable, and utilized by all. The project ran from 2018-2022 and was implemented in six (6) districts in three Regions (Central Region, Ashanti Region and Northern Region). In 2022 the project was extended to 2023 and is expected to conclude at the close of the extension. Over the period, the project implemented several targeted interventions to improve the knowledge of duty bearers, community leaders, service providers, and community members on comprehensive abortion care, to enable them to make informed decisions. A key component of the project was advocacy toward including and implementing comprehensive abortion care into the annual district work plans and budgets. As the project ends, there is a need to conduct an end-line evaluation to assess the overall project performance.

PLANNED PARENTHOOD ASSOCIATION OF GHANA DEVELOPMENT OF A STRATEGIC PLAN (2023 – 2028) TERMS OF REFERENCE (TOR)   1.0 Background The Planned Parenthood Association of Ghana (PPAG) is a leading, volunteer-supported, rights-based, grass-root-based, and non-partisan CSO working in the field of Sexual and Reproductive Health and Rights (SRHR) in Ghana. PPAG, established on 4th March 1967, is an affiliate (Member Association) of the International Planned Parenthood Federation (IPPF) and also enjoys goodwill from many international funding agencies. Over the past 54 years, PPAG has gained expertise and become a credible leader among CSOs working in the SRHR sector, with specialization in gender transformative approaches and adolescent sexual and reproductive health and rights. The Association works to complement the government’s efforts in the provision of SRHR information, education and services to the general population, particularly young people (including adolescents) and women; and also, vulnerable groups including persons living with disability, prison inmates, adolescent female internal emigrants among others.   The Association has over the years undergone several strategic changes, all in attempts to respond successfully to the changing landscape of sexual and reproductive health and rights needs in Ghana and across the Africa region. Most recently, the organization’s strategic direction, as constituted in the current Strategic Plan (2016 – 2020 and extended to 2022), has been towards achieving the following: Government commits to and implements Global, Regional and National Policies, Protocols and Commitments in respect of SRHR; 3 million young people to act freely on their sexual reproductive health and rights; 8 million quality integrated sexual and reproductive health services delivered; PPAG becomes high performing, sustainable and accountable.   The two-year extension had become necessary and was based on a recommendation from a mid-term evaluation conducted by the association.   Since the organization’s strategic plan ended in 2022, there is a need to develop a new one that responds to the current SRHR climate within Ghana and the Africa region. As a member of IPPF, this new strategic plan is also expected to align to IPPF’s newly minted strategic framework titled ‘Come Together Strategy 2023-2038’. This new strategy is a strong response to the global changes that have severely impacted access to SRHR. Changes that have emanated from the devastating impact of pandemics, climate change, migration, structural injustice, and growing inequality. Again, contextually, it is expected that the new strategic plan integrates emerging concepts around digital health interventions (DHI), gender, and mental health among others.   Within this context, PPAG seeks the services of a consultant (s) to support the organization to develop a new, comprehensive, globally oriented but context-specific strategic plan for the period 2023 to 2028.   2.0 Purpose of the Assignment The overall purpose of this assignment is to lead the process of developing a new strategic plan for PPAG for the period 2023 – 2028 based on a critical review and analysis of the internal and external context of the Association as well as a review of emerging developments on SRH at global, regional and local contexts. 2.1 Specific Objectives;
  • Evaluate the current Strategic plan 2016 - 2022 (this includes the extension period of 2021 & 2022)
  • Undertake a situational analysis of SRHR in Ghana
  • Lead the process of the development of PPAGs Strategic Plan
  3.0 Scope and Process The assignment is a nationwide endeavour and is expected to cover all of PPAG’s operational sites across the country. The focus is expected to cover all of PPAG’s programmatic areas, strictly within the field of SRHR.   4.0 Schedule

TERMS OF REFERENCE FOR A RESEARCH CONSULTANT (S)  A GLOBAL STUDY OF MEN AND WOMEN’S MALE CONTRACEPTIVE KNOWLEDGE, ATTITUDES, AND BEHAVIOURS USING MIXED METHODS IN GHANA
  1. Background
Contraception is commonly considered a woman’s responsibility. Nevertheless, men can share the burden of contraception by supporting their female partner’s contraceptive choices, correctly and consistently using condoms, recognizing the limitations of withdrawal, and undergoing vasectomy. Given the inadequacy of condoms, ineffectiveness of withdrawal, and inaccessibility of vasectomy, only 15% of contraceptive-using women worldwide report using a male-controlled method of contraception.1 Without new male contraceptive methods (MCs), men’s engagement in family planning may remain insufficient for reducing the global rate of unplanned pregnancy. Fortunately, new, reversible hormonal and non-hormonal MCs are being developed that may not only reduce global unmet need for contraception, but also improve gender equity. Yet even if new MCs are approved for the market, their widespread dissemination and uptake by men and couples will rely on transformative changes in culture that make contraception a shared responsibility. Contemporary research that describes men’s contraceptive and reproductive experiences and behaviors, as well as examines men’s and women’s knowledge of, attitudes towards, and behaviors related to male contraceptives is needed. Such research would more comprehensively contextualize men and women’s willingness to use and rely on new MCs, while providing insight into cultural and structural changes needed to help men take a more active role in delaying pregnancy. Combining these data with women’s perceptions, attitudes and experiences towards new MCs and male contraceptive behaviors can help characterize the potential impact of new MCs on unmet contraceptive need, gender equity, and even men’s uptake of preventive health services beyond contraception. Within this context, The World Health Organization (WHO), the International Planned Parenthood Federation (IPPF), and the Planned Parenthood Association of Ghana (PPAG) are collaborating to implement a research exercise that will break further grounds for the production of male contraception across the world, with specific contextual considerations. Additionally, the study will identify social and structural barriers that may need to be optimized with respect to men’s contraceptive roles and responsibilities before more widespread adoption of new MCs can be expected. Characterizing populations that may be more receptive to or hesitant about MCs can influence how these methods are introduced and distributed. Overall, the study has the following objectives:
  • Primary objectives:
  • To characterize the ways in which men participate in pregnancy prevention at the individual level, and in relation to their female partners and families.
  • To assess men’s attitudes towards the use of existing MCs and their willingness to try new MCs, with attention to the influence of gender norms.
  • To assess women’s attitudes towards their male partner’s involvement in contraceptive and pregnancy decision-making, their male partner’s use of existing MCs, and their willingness to rely on new MCs for pregnancy prevention.
 
  • Secondary objectives
  • To explore the role of (1) sociodemographic factors, (2) reproductive life plans, (3) engagement in family planning, and (4) masculine norms and gender roles on men’s use of existing MCs and attitudes towards new MCs.
  • To identify discordant contraceptive and reproductive attitudes among couples and explore their influence on willingness to use new MCs for pregnancy prevention.
  • To characterize an opportunity for increasing men’s uptake of preventive and promotive health services via accessing new MCs.
  • To explore institutional capacities and service providers’ perceptions around the provision of new MCs in the setting of current male reproductive health services.
PPAG, which is the lead implementor in Ghana, is thus seeking a research consultant (s) to support the implementation of this comprehensive exercise across the country. This is expected to provide quality contextual expertise and guidance on the research endeavour.
  1. Study Outcomes
To meet the goal and objectives of the study, the research consultant(s) will use a mixed methods methodology to implement the following:
  1. Characterize new and existing MC attitudes among men, with attention to differences between contraceptive-eligible and contraceptive-seeking individuals.
  2. Introduce men to a wider range of hormonal and non-hormonal new MC attributes (e.g., mechanisms of action, routes of administration, dosing schedules, time to effectiveness, need for semen analysis and potential side effects).
  3. Examine sociodemographic (e.g., age and SES), reproductive (e.g., history of pregnancy and unplanned pregnancy, desire for children), contraceptive (e.g., current method use and effectiveness), and psychosocial and gender norms factors (e.g., gender equitable beliefs, prioritization of sexual needs, involvement in contraceptive decision making) linked to men’s use of existing MCs and willingness to trial or use new MCs.
  4. Incorporate the attitudes of female partners of both contraceptive-eligible and contraceptive-seeking men, whose relationships and experiences deciding on and using contraception with their male partners may influence MC attitudes.
  5. Explore an opportunity to improve men’s adoption of preventive health behaviors and services via characterizing how, where, and how frequently men might access new MCs.
  6. Contextualize quantitative survey findings via qualitative, in-depth interviews targeting findings or specific sub-populations of interest from the survey.
 
  1. Scope
This would be a nationwide study, with pre-selected sites including Accra, Cape Coast, Kumasi, Techiman, Tamale and Kparigu. Social media, in specific reference to recruitment, would also be adopted to a significant extent in different aspects of the study. It is anticipated that not less than 300 participants would be recruited across the country for the quantitative aspect of the study, and not less than 30 for the qualitative component.
  1. Schedule
The study will span a period of 24 months, starting in January 2023 until December 2024. However, the consultant will not be engaged for the entirety of the period. Engagement will be based specifically on the man hours required to deliver the deliverables as required and according to an agreed work plan.
