Monitoring & Evaluation Specialist- Born On Time Project
(Based at Rangpur Divisional Office)

All over the world girls are at risk because of their young age and their gender. They are at risk of being married before the age of 18. They are at risk of violence and harassment from men and boys in every space they occupy, including their home, their school, their refugee camp and their city. They are at risk of being denied the opportunity to access a secondary education, to gain the skills and training they need to work and to exercise control over their sexual and reproductive health.

Plan International Bangladesh has been awarded a 5 years grant of 5.5 million US Dollar from Global Affairs Canada (GAC) and Johnson & Johnson (J&J) to implement a project named Born On Time. Ultimate outcome of this project is the reduction of neonatal mortality in Bangladesh. The project will be implemented in 6 Upazilas of Rangpur District with an objective of improved and increased availability of quality, gender responsive/ adolescent-friendly maternal, newborn and reproductive health services to prevent and care for preterm births among adolescent girls and women of child bearing age (WCBA). The project will ultimately contribute by improving health service delivery; increasing uptake of health services and strengthening data collection and utilization.
