Tenders are invited for Niger: Individual Contract International Consultant Training of Community Radio Animators & Journalists. Title of the consultation : "International Consultant: Training of Community radios in radio genre carrying the messages for the blossoming of the Child in Niger". 1.Context and justification.Niger has a Comprehensive Multi-Year Plan (cMYP) for the period 2016-2020 to improve the health status of the population and enable access and equity for all to immunization services . The implementation of the activities of the cMYP is supported by numerous technical and financial partners (TFPs) and social partners. Despite this support, the immunization program continues to underperform. Virtually between 2012 and 2017, some regions experienced a drop in their immunization coverage by which Diffa, Maradi and Niamey. These hedges respectively increased from 41.8% to 12.1% for Diffa, 54.1% to 31.3% for Maradi and 72.5% to 49.9% for Niamey. If all the missed opportunities for vaccination had been made up, there would have been a significant gain in antigen coverage. For example, IPV coverage would have increased from 60.8% to 87.5%. The proportion of fully immunized children would have almost doubled from 38.2% to 75%. Communication activities in the context of vaccination promotion are intensive only during SIAs and the introduction of new vaccines. For routine immunization, the bulk of communication activities can be summed up in educational talk sessions at immunization centers and some dissemination periods devoted to public, private and community radio stations. With an estimated illiteracy rate of 67% of the total population, the community radios have a role of education and sensitization quite important in Niger. These radio stations, which are the closest to the population, offer a very large number of productions on a daily basis on different themes. These productions are adapted to the needs of the local populations whose priorities in terms of socio-economic development differ from those of the big agglomerations of Niger. For example, health, education and agriculture programs play an important role in program grids. Community radios contribute to the local development of communities but face enormous organizational and technical difficulties. According to the Superior Council of Communication (CSC), just over 70% of the population continues to learn radio, including community radios. There are no fewer than 135 community radio stations registered in Niger (2016). To support this community effort by improving the skills of the community radio technicians who are not usually professionals and, having only limited radio means, the UNICEF office in Niger proposes to recruit an "International Consultant for the training of Radios Community "by pool. This training should raise the capacity of community radios to diversify the radio genres, to make their media more attractive to the population. the UNICEF office in Niger proposes to recruit an "International Consultant for Community Radio Training" by pool.
