The International Planned Parenthood Federation Africa Regional Office (IPPFARO) is one of the leading providers of quality sexual and reproductive health (SRH) services in Africa, and a prominent sexual and reproductive health and rights (SRHR) advocacy voice in the region.
Headquartered in Nairobi, Kenya, IPPFARO delivers its critical mission with the support and leadership of 33 Member Associations (MAs), 9 Collaborative Partners, youth advocates, staff, and a network of dedicated volunteers who provide high quality, youth focused and gender sensitive services to those who are most vulnerable and marginalized.

IPPF Africa Region (IPPFAR) is taking a targeted, systemic and multi-faceted approach that mobilizes and reinforces its assets in West and Central Africa, aimed at ensuring comprehensive and integrated SRH services are available and sustainable so women and girls can access contraception and lifesaving SGBV services safely; the necessary measures are in place to mitigate the risk of GBV; and medical supplies and commodities are available, including for menstrual hygiene management.
By setting up a sub-regional office in Abidjan, Cote d’Ivoire, and growing its infrastructure, its human resources and its strategic investments in the sub-region, IPPFAR will support the regional capacity strengthening and integration of its Member Associations and Collaborative Partners in West and Central Africa.
Crucial to IPPFAR’s successful presence and action in West and Central Africa is the development of a tailored sub-regional plan of action, aligned with the global IPPF strategy, tailored to respond to the specific SRHR needs of priority populations that can guide the technical support to be provided by the IPPFAR Sub-Regional Office in Abidjan, Cote d’Ivoire.
To this effect, IPPFAR is recruiting a short-term junior consultant to support a senior consultant to work with IPPF Member Associations, Collaborative Partners and Youth Representatives, as well as selected key actors, to undertake a stock-take of the SRHR situation and opportunities in the sub-region and develop a Regional Plan of Action to respond to the particular needs and realities of the sub-region.
The assignment is expected to take a maximum of 30 days between September and December 2022. The strategy validation workshop is expected to take place in October 2022, with the final plan of action and workplan being delivered in late October 2022. The period November-December will be dedicated to the follow-up of the implementation of the plan of action.
Interested individuals should submit an application form in the IPPFARO CV form (attached) and a 1-page cover letter to: [email protected] with the job position you are applying for as the subject of the email. Please note that we will not consider applications that are not done in the requested format.
Deadline for application: 25 September 2022.
