Medical Editor for the IPPF Client-Centred Clinical Guidelines

Closing date

IPPF is a global service provider and a leading advocate of sexual and reproductive health and rights for all. We are a worldwide movement of national organizations working with and for communities and individuals across 140 countries. IPPF aims to improve the quality of life of individuals by campaigning for sexual and reproductive health and rights through the provision of services and through advocacy, especially for adolescents and youth, and other vulnerable people across the globe.

IPPF is undertaking a full review of its 2004 Medical and Service Delivery Guidelines (MSDGs). The revised guidelines will be relaunched as client-centred clinical guidelines (CCCGs) to reflect the current IPPF strategy, commitment to human rights and gender equality and the latest global evidence and best practices.

The CCCGs mainly targets health service providers (including doctors, nurses and other midlevel providers, and health agents) with different levels of education and varying clinical experience with guidance for providing comprehensive sexual and reproductive health (SRH) services. Other stakeholders include clinic and health programme managers. As such, the guidelines need   to be clear, easy to read and understand, inclusive, as well as technically and clinically accurate and founded on best practice. The previous version of the guidelines can be found at http://www.ippf.org/resource/medical-and-service-delivery-guidelines. An outline of the revised guidelines chapters is annexed.

IPPF is seeking a Medical Editor with experience in reviewing and editing medical documents, including sexual and reproductive health service delivery documents. Experience in reviewing medical/health guidelines, standards of practice, handbooks, journal articles and reports will be an advantage.

Interested consultants are advised to send their CV, list of relevant publications and daily rate in USD to Nathalie Kapp, Chief Medical Advisor at IPPF via email: [email protected]  by 25 November 2021.
