UNICEF and International Children's Palliative Care Network (ICPCN) would like to contract a consultant for a short-term research project to identify children’s palliative care needs and critical funding gaps, with a focus on palliative care needs of children.
Countries will be prioritised on the basis of having a high prevalence of HIV infection, effective national hospice and palliative care associations, and availability of data on certain life-limiting, chronic and life-threatening conditions. UNICEF and ICPCN have identified Zimbabwe, Zambia, Uganda, Kenya, Malawi and South Africa as potential countries for this analysis – and from this list 3 countries will be prioritised in the inception phase.
The duration of this consultancy will be between 50-60 days from mid-October 2012 until end April 2013.
