Background and Context
Helen Keller International supports the supplementation with high dose of Vitamin A of up to 40 million children every year in 13 countries of sub-Saharan Africa. HKI supports delivery of vitamin A twice a year to at least 80% of children aged 6 to 59 months in countries with high under five mortality and high rates of vitamin A deficiency. Studies have shown that Vitamin A supplementation (VAS) can contribute to a reduction of U5M by up to 24%.

In these countries, VAS is delivered to children twice a year through multiple delivery mechanisms. Some countries are organizing mass distribution campaigns where teams of distributors visit every household to give the vitamin A to children. Others have integrated VAS into their facility-based delivery systems alongside with routine immunization or growth monitoring. A third group of countries are using a hybrid system that comprises of campaigns and facility-based delivery. Finally, some countries are transitioning from one approach to another.

In Tanzania children aged 6-59 months are supplemented by VAS twice a year during Child Health and Nutrition Months (CHNM) happening every June and December. During those specific events a comprehensive package of services beyond VAS is provided to children including immunization, provision of deworming tablets, growth monitoring, and nutrition counselling and education to caregivers. VAS is delivered by health workers in all health facilities in the country and through mobile services in hard-to-reach areas. VAS data is collected by health providers in the health management information system (HMIS) tools including tally sheets that feeds into the national DHIS2 database. Although the data collection systems are well institutionalized, the routine VAS data quality remained inadequate. While most of regions indicates high coverage (of more than 90%) of VAS during CHNM months, other sources including national surveys data, or any post event coverage surveys (PECs) data shows low coverage. The national nutrition survey (TNNS, 2018) revealed that only 3 regions out of 26 including Mtwara, Iringa and Njombe had VAS coverage of 80% and above while the corresponding data from CHNM revealed all the regions were above 80%.

To better understand the situation including funding gap, supply chain, information system, coverage and identify potential areas of support, Helen Keller International is recruiting a consultant to support a coverage survey.

The Consultant will work in close collaboration with the Helen Keller International team, the Ministry of Health, Tanzania Food and Nutrition Centre and other VAS implementing partners.
