Job Description

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.

According the UN interagency Estimation (2017), maternal mortality rate of Myanmar is 250 per 100, 000 thousand live-births which is the highest in the South-East Asia Region and the annual rate of reduction is 1.8. It needs to accelerate to increase the annual rate of reduction from 1.8 to 7.5 to meet the SDG by 2030. Additionally, neonatal mortality in 2015 was 25 per 1,000 live births and strengthened efforts are also needed to achieve SDG indicator of neonatal mortality at 12 per 1000 live births by 2030.
