The Health Development Fund (HDF) in Zimbabwe (2016-2020) is a multi-donor funded UNICEF-UNFPA joint programme. The Reproductive, Maternal, Neonatal, Child and Adolescent Health – Nutrition (RMNCAH-N) programme builds upon two previous multi-donor pooled funds implemented under the purview of the Ministry of Health and Child Care (MoHCC): the UNICEF supported Health Transition Fund (HTF), which was aimed at health systems strengthening for MNCH; and the UNFPA supported Integrated Support Fund (ISF) on Sexual and Reproductive Health and Prevention of HIV and Gender Based Violence.

One of the many key aspects of the HDF programme evaluation is the assessment of the programme interventions pertaining to health procurement and health supply chain.

    • Work with other team members on the assigned tasks related with revision of evaluation tools.
  • Field Mission Work:
    • Independently, or together with Team Lead and/or other evaluation mission members, conduct KIIs/FGDs with government agencies, UNICEF team and at district level.
    • Prepare notes for each meeting for analysis and reporting purpose.
    • Participate in internal discussions for sharing reflections on key findings from the fieldwork [on need basis].
  • Post Feld Mission Data Consolidation/Analysis:
