PSI Tanzania has recently rolled out an E-referral system to increase the overall effectiveness of the Inter Personal Communication process.
According to the latest demographic surveys, in Tanzania almost one-quarter of young married women & and one-third of sexually active unmarried women reported having an unmet need for family planning. In order to address this tremendous need, PSI uses interpersonal communication agents who are able to reach women in rural and other hard to reach areas to provide information and education. These agents provide referrals to family planning clinics to women interested in receiving a contraceptive method.
Evaluating the different steps leading to a completed referral cycle is critical to understanding the effectiveness of PSI interventions. The Interpersonal Communication Agent (IPC) management team continually seeks to build its analytical capacity with the objective of being Data savvy, interactive, responsive and solution-driven.
We are therefore looking for a Referral systems expert to help build the capacity of our IPC management team to mine, synthesis and utilize data to develop practical solutions that increase the overall effectiveness of the IPC program.
