The Strategic Partnership is implemented in three countries, Kenya, Uganda and Ethiopia and covers five thematic areas within and in relation to SRHR and Gender Equality: Sexual and Gender Based Violence (SGBV), Youth, LGBT+ (Kenya)/Key Population (Uganda)/Sex workers (Ethiopia), Women at work in the formal private sector, and Climate Change.


DFPA is a non-governmental organization without religious or political affiliations. We work with associations and organizations within the sphere of Sexual and Reproductive Health and Rights and are a member of International Planned Parenthood Federation. DFPA have been implementing international projects since 1994. In 2022, DFPA entered in to the second phase of its Danida Strategic Partnership Programme. The Strategic partnership projects are implemented in collaboration with 14 local partners on projects within all five thematic areas in Kenya and Uganda and within four thematic areas in Ethiopia.

Purpose of assignment

The overall purpose of the consultancy is to provide DFPA and partners with insight into SRHR knowledge, practices and gender norms, attitudes, and practices among beneficiaries, formal and informal leaders as well as service providers. Based on this analysis and an international literature review the consultant should provide recommendations for improvement of the approach. The baseline study findings will inform intervention strategies as well as ongoing monitoring through the project implementation period. An end-line study in the same selected sites and with same methodologies will be undertaken to capture positive or negative changes.
