Consultant to develop a study on strategies for the affected population to access healthcare in Humanity and Inclusion’s area of intervention.
General objective: Understand the different barriers and facilitators for the affected population to access healthcare as a way of informing sustainable and durable health related interventions.
Specific objectives of the study:
1/ In-depth situation analysis on access to healthcare in the area of intervention–general and specialised services, including:
Ø Decision-making related to accesing healthcare. i.e. how healthcare is prioritised in household spending, especially among persons with disabilities and their families.
Ø Coping strategies which impact their physical and mental wellbeing that could lead to need for healthcare, especially among persons with disabilities and their families.
Ø Contextual limitations which impact provision of adequate health services –security, access, financial situation of health facilities, availability, accessibility and cost of transport, availability of quality and gender balance among health professionals etc.
Ø Analysis of above mentioned information vis a vis pre-identified barriers to health services.
Ø Collect and analyze data according to the intersections of age, gender and disability, identifying who and how they are the most excluded from health care.
2/ Based on the situation analysis results, provide recommendations of the possible interventions which would ensure durable, ethical and sustainable solutions to remove identified barriers, including Gender Age and Disability (GAD) inclusion principles.
3/ In coordination with programme and technical team, contextualise recommendations to HI interventions, including:
Ø Modality of intervention for the three sub-sectors: Rehabilitation, P&O, MHPSS.
Ø Priority geographical areas of intervention.
Ø GAD inclusion principles to inform programming and interventions.
