Training of Health Service Providers working in Rohingya refugee camps on Adolescent Friendly Health Services (AFHS) and Psychosocial Support – Consultancy, Cox’s Bazar

Since extreme violence erupted in the Rakhine State of Myanmar in 25 August 2017, an estimated 702,160 Rohingya men, women and children have crossed the border into Cox’s Bazar, Bangladesh to find safety. Combined with pre-existing numbers of Rohingya population that fled earlier in previous years, the total Rohingya population in Cox’s Bazar amounts to approximately 914,678 as of 24 May 2018.

Plan International’s initial response focused on providing life-saving and immediate WASH and Protection needs to the most vulnerable arriving in Cox’s Bazaar. In that continuation, in October 2018 Plan International Bangladesh has launched a project titled “Champions of Change” with the financial support from UNFPA.  The overall outcome of the project is to reduce vulnerability of adolescent boys to protection risks and negative SRHR outcomes in Rohingya and Host communities in Bangladesh. The project therefore focusses on building life skills and resilience of adolescent boys, and improving access to quality adolescent friendly SRH and PSS services, in line with the Protection Objective of Joint Response Plan for Rohingya Humanitarian Crisis, March to December 2018.

In order to improve the quality of services delivered to adolescents this assignment will focus on the capacity development of health service centers and posts in camps. The key themes of the training is Adolescent Friendly Health Services (AFHS) and PSS.
