Request for Proposal – To Facilitate Advocacy Meeting with MoH to Advocate for Expansion of “Replication Package” of the VAS program to 5 Selected Provinces in Indonesia

Request for Proposal to Facilitate Advocacy Meeting with MoH to Advocate for Expansion of “Replication Package” of the VAS program to 5 Selected Provinces in Indonesia.

The Micronutrient Initiative (MI) is an international Non-Government Organization (NGO) dedicated to ensuring that the world’s most vulnerable – especially women and children in developing countries – get the vitamins and minerals they need to survive and thrive. With headquarters in Ottawa, Canada MI maintains regional offices in New Delhi, India and Dakar, Senegal that manage our country offices in Asia and Africa.

Micronutrient Initiative (MI) has supported VAS program in Indonesia since 2009 in 12 districts of six provinces (North Sumatera, South Sumatera, West Java, Banten, Riau and West Nusa Tenggara). A coverage evaluation survey was conducted by MI in 2012 comparing MI supported and non-supported districts. The key findings indicated that at least 10% of the children are being missed from vitamin A supplementation and highlighted that the role of MI supported extenders in the district was considered important to improve the management of VAS program including planning, supply chain, and reporting on coverage. On the basis of these findings, MI continued to support in replicating the best practice which were found to improve coverage and management of the VAS program at the provincial level in those 6 provinces during 2012-2016.
To strengthen government commitment and integrate VAS program with other Maternal, Child Health and Nutrition programs, MI will support advocacy meetings to introduce the “Replication Package” of the VAS program (which has been implemented in six MI supported districts/provinces) to 5 new provinces. Therefore, MI is looking for an agency to support MI and conduct these advocacy meetings with MoH to advocate for the expansion of the “Replication Package” in 5 selected Provinces in Indonesia.

 The activities are planned to be conducted in February – October 2017.
