Job Description

This consultancy vacancy is open only for Nationals of Myanmar.

Purpose of Consultancy:

UNFPA is the lead UN agency for delivering a world where every pregnancy is wanted, every childbirth is safe and every young person’s potential is fulfilled. UNFPA’s strategic plan (2022-2025), focuses on three transformative results: to end preventable maternal deaths; end unmet need for family planning; and end gender-based violence and harmful practices.

UNFPA’s Fourth Country Programme Document (2018-2022) for Myanmar was approved by the Executive Board in September 2017. The Programme focuses on three key areas of intervention 1) sexual and reproductive health and rights (SRHR), 2) gender equality and women’s empowerment and 3) population dynamics. Youth and adolescents as well as gender equality and related human rights, are mainstreamed throughout the programme. UNFPA has partnerships with diverse stakeholders, including UN agencies, international and national/local NGOs, civil society organisations (CSOs), foundations, EHOs, private sector and research institutions. UNFPA has a presence in a number of priority states/regions, integrating development, peacebuilding and humanitarian spectrums.

In Myanmar, the 2014 Population and Housing Census showed that young people account for about 28 percent of its total population. Young people include adolescents (aged 10-19) and youth (aged 15- 24). Sexual and reproductive health is still considered a taboo subject, making it challenging for young people to access accurate information which helps them make informed choices for their future.
