MDA Project Kajiado and Turkana Counties Consultancy Opportunity in Kenya


MDA Project Kajiado and Turkana Counties Consultancy

Anticipated Timeframe: 25 working days between 15 Nov – 31 Dec 2023 Location: Nairobi, Kajiado County and Turkana County, Kenya


Kajiado County and Turkana County have conducted multiple rounds of Azithromycin MDA since 2007 (as part of the full SAFE strategy) but has failed to achieve elimination thresholds as expected.

A deep dive into the data and programmatic challenges have identified several gaps, some of which relate to poor planning and monitoring of MDAs and insufficient supervision to CDDs during MDA.

We are therefore looking to engage an individual consultant to support the MDAs in Kajiado and Turkana Counties throughout the project.

Verification of all participants’ MPESA details and preparation of payment schedules
Deployment of MDA supplies in the field and distribution of MDA materials and drugs to the last point of collection by the CDDs
