Tenders are invited for Consultancy: to Support Thrive Programming at Country Level as Part of the Every Woman Every Child Strategy, Health Section, PD - NYHQ, Requisition #522076. UNICEF works in some of the world-s toughest places, to reach the world-s most disadvantaged children. To save their lives. To defend their rights. To help them fulfill their potential. Across 190 countries and territories, we work for every child, everywhere, every day, to build a better world for everyone. And we never give up. Background & Rationale Non-communicable diseases (NCDs), including preventable injuries and mental health, are a leading cause of death responsible for 71% or 41 million of all deaths globally. In addition, NCDs are no longer diseases of the rich. Closely linked to poverty, they have significant consequences that hamper social and economic development, worsen poverty and inequities, and negatively impact families, including children and adolescents. A further burden for young people to survive and thrive are the 1.4 million people who die every year from preventable road traffic injuries, at a cost to most countries of 3% their gross domestic product. Road traffic injuries are now the leading killer of people aged 5-29 years.[1] In 2015, an estimated 360000 people died from drowning, making drowning a major public health problem worldwide[2]. For UNICEF, prevention of NCDs and injuries are critical components of children-s and adolescent-s right to health and development to their full potential. For example, the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development has set an ambitious target of halving these deaths and injuries from road traffic crashes by 2020. UNICEF-s new strategic plan revolves around the survive, thrive and transform agenda, which will entail a more integrated and holistic approach along the life cycle continuum of care for every child (0-19 years). As part of this, UNICEF is shaping a multi-sectoral agenda, internally and externally, to tackle the “causes of the causes” of diseases and ill-health, and working at international, national and local community levels. UNICEF has recently developed a programme guidance on NCDs, describing UNICEF-s role, at various levels, in contributing to multi-sectoral approach required to tackle this complex issue. Purpose UNICEF HQs in New York is seeking a consultant to support thrive programming at country level as part of the Every Woman Every Child strategy.
