International Medical Corps – WBG
Barrier Analysis Consultant
The USAID Gaza 2020: Health Matters project is designed to improve emergency preparedness and response (EPR), and to improve access and availability of quality primary and secondary health care by building the capacity of NGOs and community-based organizations (CBO) in Gaza and the West Bank. International Medical Corps (IMC) and its partners, Cooperative for Assistance and Relief Everywhere, Inc. (CARE), Juzoor for Health and Social Development (Juzoor), and Mercy Corps, (the Consortium) bring together various components necessary to create a holistic system that is gender sensitive and responsive to crisis and to the needs of residents of Gaza and West Bank, including vulnerable populations.
In 2017, a Barrier Analysis will be conducted to identify barriers to improved health behaviors. For example, Palestinians in Gaza are well educated and well informed, yet continue to engage in unhealthy behaviors (for example, early introduction of complementary foods, smoking and leading sedentary lifestyles). The barrier analysis will help Gaza2020: Health Matters to address the needs of men, women, girls, boys, and marginalized or vulnerable persons with a better understanding of the needs of these segments of the population. The findings of the barrier analysis will inform community health interventions and health messaging to improve health awareness and health-seeking behavior in the community.
International Medical Corps is planning to recruit a Barrier Analysis Consultant, to be based in Gaza. The consultant will be responsible to lead the study process. He/she shall work closely with respective staff within International Medical Corps Primary Health care Department, to ensure systematic development and implementation of the study.
