22 September 2019

Supported by the National Health Commission (NHC) and United Nations Population Fund (UNFPA), China Family Planning Association (CFPA) is implementing a project in four sites in Qinghai (3 counties) and Shanxi (1 county) to improve sexual and reproductive health (SRH) status among vulnerable populations including ethnic minorities. The target population of the project includes women of  reproductive age (15-49) and young people aged 15- 24 years.

UNFPA China is looking for a qualified research institution or team to conduct a baseline survey among the target population for their socio-economic status, barriers for accessing quality sexual and reproductive health information and services and needs for sexual and reproductive health services, and knowledge and attitudes towards sexual and reproductive health issues in the four counties in order to inform the design and implementation of interventions for the target population.

Please kindly refer to the attached Terms of Reference (ToR) for the scope of work and requirements. Eligible candidates should submit technical proposals elaborating investigation methods, sampling method (please refer the basic population data in the four counties  the Annex 1), feasible strategy to access subjects (reproductive age women and young people in and out of schools), budget plan and team lead and team members’ resumes to ai@unfpa.org and copy tli@unpfa.org. Only shortlisted applications will be conducted for further discussions. The closing date is 22 September 2019. Thank you very much for your attention.
