Technical Consultant IPPF Medical and Service Delivery Guidelines: Counselling Chapter

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 170 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 the 2004 Medical and Service Delivery Guidelines (MSDGs). The revised guidelines will be relaunched as a ‘handbook’ for health service providers. IPPF is revising the 2004 Medical and Service Delivery Guidelines to reflect the current IPPF strategy (2016 – 2022), IPPF’s Integrated Package of Essential Services (IPES) and the latest global evidence and best practices.

The MSDGs mainly targets health service providers (including doctors, nurses and other midlevel providers) with different levels of education and varying clinical experience with guidance for providing comprehensive sexual and reproductive health (SRH) services.  As such, the guidelines need to be clear, easy to read and understand, 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.

IPPF is seeking a Technical Consultant with expertise in clinical care delivery and guideline development in the area of counselling to review and edit the counselling chapter for the next edition of the MSDGs.  Experience in reviewing and authoring medical/health guidelines, standards of practice, handbooks and reports will be an advantage.
