Request for Proposals: Strategy Development Workshop Facilitator, Kenya


Transform Health, is a global coalition that works to advocate for digital health transformation to achieve the UN Sustainable Development Goal around universal health coverage by 2030. We have a number of objectives that we are working towards nationally, regionally and globally, including advocating for a better digital health enabling environment (by supporting governments to put  the right laws, regulations, standards and policies in place through our national coalitions), an equity and inclusive health data governance framework that gets adopted by WHO member states (for better cross-data sharing and data use), and increased and coordinated digital health investment.

We are looking for a consultant with prior experience evaluating programs/advocacy programmes and experience engaging stakeholders from multiple sectors to host an evaluation and strategy development workshop with Transform Health Kenya. Transform Health Kenya is a coalition of 32 organisations and institutions in Kenya working on health and human rights, with key and affected populations, youth, women, and marginalised communities, all of whom are committed to achieving Universal Health Coverage through the use of digital technologies and data. The coalition is coordinated by the Kenya Legal & Ethical Issues Network on HIV and AIDS (KELIN), and was launched in 2022. 

The workshop will be a mix of wider coalition reflections / learning and engagement with our coalition coordinating partner . During this workshop, we will also evaluate Transform Health Kenya’s 2 year achievements and key takeaways  for the period of 2022 – 2024.
