Adolescent Sexual Reproductive Health (ASRH) Specialist

FHI 360 is a nonprofit human development organization dedicated to improving lives in lasting ways by advancing integrated, locally driven solutions. Our staff includes experts in health, education, nutrition, environment, economic development, civil society, gender, youth, research and technology — creating a unique mix of capabilities to address today's interrelated development challenges. FHI 360 serves more than 70 countries. FHI360 currently is seeking qualified candidates for the mentioned above position for the anticipated USAID/Tanzania- Let Girls Learn Initiative (LGL-T).
The main objectives of LGL-T are to ensure girls’ increased enrollment in educational programs for girls and increased retention in educational programs for girls in lower secondary school, and to empower adolescent girls to acquire an education and skills to become positive agents for change within their communities. To achieve this, FHI 360 and its partners will implement a gender-transformative school and community-based approach that engages girls, boys, women and men in actively examining and changing entrenched, unequal gender norms that harm individuals and hinder social and economic development. At the same time, LGL-T will put adolescent girls at the forefront of programming empowering them not only to stay in school, but also to use their new leadership and other skills at home, at school and in the broader community. The project will be implemented in secondary schools in the northern regions of Tanzania including Mwanza and Tabora.

Position Responsibilities:
The position will support FHI 360’s efforts to work with the Ministry of Education and Ministry of Health and use two internationally tested and proven tools: 1) the My Changing Body teacher-training curriculum (originally developed by FHI 360 and the Georgetown University Institute for Reproductive Health in 2003); and 2) the It’s All One Curriculum (developed by the International Sexuality and HIV Curriculum Working Group), a comprehensive set of practical activities designed to introduce key gender and RH concepts to adolescents in a culturally and age-appropriate manner that promotes critical thinking. The position holder will specifically:
• Organize and conduct a training for teachers on ASRH using the My Changing Body manual at the start of each school year and assist teachers in planning and leading a series of student activities based on It’s All One Curriculum.
• Coordinate with the project schools’ administration staff and teachers to hold annual introductory/informational sessions for parents about the course and reassure them about its contents, given the sensitive nature of topics such as ARH, sexuality and HIV.
• Work with schools in the preparation and sharing of information on curriculum and activities with parents and encourage them to assist their children in completing relevant ASRH assignments.
• Ascertain the linkage between ASRH and HIV, GBV, and adolescents’ future options through community dialogues on these issues.
• Work with school officials to incorporate ASRH in after school education program
• Train and build the capacities of healthcare providers (two per school community) on the ASRH needs of adolescents and encourage them to provide youth-friendly services.
• Act as a liaison to community groups including women’s associations and other CBOs and encourage promotion of accurate information on ASRH at home, in school and in the community.
• Work with community leaders and help organize information sessions and events for the school communities using favoured local means such as drama, songs, role play, poetry, etc.
• Coordinate with local/national radio programming to broadcast messages to the broader community related to RH information, protection, prevention, linkage to better and healthier life.
• Submit monthly reports on planned activities and achievements.
• Incorporate all ASRH activities into the project’s Work plan, M&E and PMP.
• Represent FHI 360 at ASRH meetings, panels, discussions and conferences and contribute blogs/success stories reflecting progress/impact to FHI 360’s website.

Qualifications/Requirements:
• Bachelor’s degree required, Master’s degree preferred in the field of public health, behavioural/social sciences, gender, adolescent education or related field.
• Demonstrated experience (minimum of 5 years) in working on education projects with a focus on adolescent girls’ education/gender/health/social behavioural change and ARH programs and activities.
• Experience planning and implementing adolescent related programs and/or research in developing countries.
