Description du projet
The project has the scope of assisting three new HDCs in the roll out of the activities targeting RH services as well as contributing to strategic planning in a sustainable way for progressive improvement of health indicators in Yemen and for increased effectiveness of decentralization of authority.
At the moment of writing the ToR the HDCs have not been egally established yet (the format of ministerial decree and the by-laws are ready, but not yet signed). It is expected that this operation will take some time, nevertheless support to capacity building at different levels can already start while waiting for the legal demarches to be completed.
In the general landscape of Governorate capacities and needs the three selected Governorates compound all, though to different extent, compelling needs in terms of improving health indicators but offer at the same time a relatively stable management structure, thereby increasing chances of a
November 2010 Page 9 of 15 successful support. The results achieved in the three other Governorates (Taiz, Hodeida and Lahj) also offer the opportunity for cross-fertilization, for further development of the "old" Governorates and for maximizing the impact of lessons learned there.

The relatively short time of implementation assigned to this consultancy calls for a vigorous intervention in terms of capacity building and on the job support as, at the same time, the EU will provide support for rolling out RH activities.

The two key directorates at the central MoPHP (Planning and Development and Populations) need to be encouraged to support with their comparative advantages (management and governance for the former and technical/clinical inputs for the latter) and focus on the achievement of results in the
three selected Governorates.

The ToR have been centred on one key expert, leaving however a substantial amount of unallocated fee-days for non-key experts (long term and short term). Ideally a combination of a resident key-expert (Team Leader), ensuring continuity and at least one long term non-key expert with mainly tasks of coordinating and supporting the learning curve of the HDCs (capacity building, twinning programmes with other governorates...) and of short term or intermittent experts
ensuring that relevant specialized topics will be well covered has been the guiding line in designing this intervention. Resource persons/teams already working in the "old" Governorates as well as technical staff of the central level or of the Academia or NGOs is also encouraged to be considered by the consultant in order to maximise the inputs in a relatively short time.

The Governorate strategic planning exercise is expected to start soon. Although it will take time before its complete roll out, it is essential at this point in time that the exercise involves appropriately all the interested parties and starts on solid grounds.
