As we embark on this ambitious and exciting journey, we are recruiting for talent across the globe.We are recruiting to fill the position below:Job Title: Media Producer - Gender Responsive Radio Jingles Location: BauchiJob Type: ConsultancyPurpose of the AssignmentThe Bauchi Opportunities for Responsive Neonatal and Maternal Health (BORN) project is a four and a half year (February 2016-June 2020) gender-transformative project funded by Global Affairs Canada. The project is expected to ultimately contribute to the reduction of maternal and neonatal mortality in 10 Local Government Areas (LGAs) among marginalized and vulnerable women and new- borns. Its intermediate outcomes are: improved utilization of maternal, neonatal and family planning services by women of reproductive age (WRA) including adolescent girls, new-borns, and male community members; improved quality of maternal,neonatal and family planning services for WRA including adolescent girls, new-borns and male community members; and, improved quality of local health governance systems to ensure high quality, gender responsive, adolescent friendly and results- oriented maternal and neonatal health, and sexual reproductive health (MNH/SRH) services. Plan International Canada is implementing BORN project in partnership with Plan International Nigeria, the Federal and State Ministries of Health, Ministries of Women’s Affairs, and Civil Society Organizations (CSOs) (Planned Parenthood Federation of Nigeria (PPFN) and Community initiative for the Promotion of Health and Education Sectors (CIPHRESS)). BORN is aligned with the UN’s Every Woman Every Child Global Strategy on Women’s, Children’s and Adolescents’ Health, and will help drive progress towards reaching Sustainable Development Goals 3 and 5.This project will respond to health needs identified by the 2013 National Demographic Health Survey (NDHS) situational analysis for Bauchi state, which reported that only 16% of births are attended by a skilled birth attendant, access to postnatal care remains very low, 84% of new-borns did not receive post-natal care; and Neonatal Mortality Rate (NMR) stands at 43/1000 live births. Furthermore, only 2.1% of WRA utilize modern family planning methods, with unmet needs for FP at 16%. In addition, 48% of adolescent girls aged 15 -19 years old have begun childbearing in Bauchi. There are also considerable gender inequalities contributing to this context, as women and adolescent girls have little opportunity for decision making at the household level, poor access to health information and services, and local health services are not gender responsive and adolescent friendly.The Plan International/BORN Project in collaboration with the State Primary Health Care Development Agency, as part of their effort to improve access and utilization of MNCH/ASRH services, as well as, create awareness for positive behavior change, will developed gender sensitive and adolescent friendly BCC massages which include Jingles and Radio Magazine for airing on Radio targeting women ,men, adolescent girls and boys in hard to reach and marginalized rural communities of Bauchi state.
