Banyan Global is an international development consulting firm committed to improving livelihoods through market approaches for a broad and lasting impact. The firm is headquartered in Washington, DC with staff working in a number of developing countries. Banyan Global operates seamlessly within five practice areas: health, economic growth, gender, youth, and monitoring, evaluation, and learning.
Banyan Global leads the monitoring, evaluation, and learning component of USAID’s Global Health Supply Chain—Technical Assistance (GHSC-TA) program in South Africa, implemented by Guidehouse LLP. Since 2017, GHSC-TA has provided technical assistance directly to the Affordable Medicines Directorate (AMD) of the National Department of Health (NDoH), as well as to the Pharmaceutical Services (PS) directorates of the Provincial Departments of Health (PDoH). The overall aim of the program is to assist the government with improving access to, and availability of, the medicines and related commodities needed to prevent and treat HIV/AIDS, TB, and associated conditions and disorders.
Banyan Global is recruiting a Team Leader for an endline assessment of GHSC-TA to ascertain the extent to which the program has met its intended outcomes, objectives, and established targets, as well as to document lessons learned for future activities. The assessment will include data analysis for output- and outcome-level performance indicators aligned to the program’s results framework, as well as additional data collection and analysis to expand on performance monitoring data and ascertain advantages and disadvantages of various technical and management approaches taken by the program over time. The endline assessment will draw on both primary data collected by GHSC-TA and qualitative and quantitative secondary data from a variety of sources and stakeholders.
The Assessment Team Leader will coordinate and direct the overall efforts of the assessment and will be responsible for day-to-day management of the assessment team, methodology design, workplan development, data collection, and reporting. The assessment will likely require in-person data collection Pretoria and various provinces within the country to be determined. However, should the public health landscape or other considerations limit travel, parts or all of the assessment may be conducted remotely. Responsibilities will include:
Level of effort: Up to 60 days between May and July 2023.
Travel: Public health considerations permitting, travel throughout various provinces of South Africa is expected.
