Johanniter-Unfall-Hilfe e.V. (www.thejohanniter.org) is a German Christian non-governmental organ-isation, dedicated to excellence in the field of first aid, ambulance service, social service programmes and other projects in the medical and social field. The Federal Headquarters are based in Berlin, Germany. Johanniter International Assistance is the operational unit for humanitarian aid, develop-ment co-operation and emergency relief, implementing and supporting mostly health projects world-wide.

Background and Rationale
The refugee crisis in South Sudan currently remains the fastest growing and largest refugee situation on the African continent and the third largest refugee crisis in the world. More than a third of the estimated 12 million inhabitants of South Sudan have been displaced and more than half of the population is affected by the crisis . Within the country, there are nearly two million IDPs in urgent humanitarian need, while outside the country there are now nearly 2.4 million South Sudanese refugees, with Uganda still the largest receiving country, followed by Sudan, Ethiopia, Kenya, the Democratic Republic of Congo and the Central African Republic

Purpose, Objectives and Use
The purpose of this consultancy is to conduct the baseline data collection as defined hereunder of the project. It is expected that this baseline data collection and review will interrogate the implementation methodologies geared towards establishing the following:
·        Improved utilization of health, nutrition and WASH services by pregnant and lactating women, children and other vulnerable people in South Sudan, Kenya and Uganda by 2023.
·        The Baseline will seek to collect baseline data on the indicators which will guide achieving the above mentioned specific goal of the project, as defined in the project proposal (will
·        be made available to consultant).

Key data to be collected for the baseline include:
Data related to the below indicators will be collected/ included in the baseline.
Outcome level:
-        Number of health consultations provided for beneficiaries
-        Proportion of children under 5 years presenting with malaria who have received effective malaria treatment within 24 hours of onset of their symptoms.
-        Proportion of children exclusively breastfed until 6 months of age in the target area.
-        Prevalence rate GAM (MAM and SAM) in children under 5.
-        Prevalence of diarrhea in children under 5
·        Output level:
-        % of identified GBV survivors referred to treatment Centers for medical and psychosocial care
-        Number of health referrals (from community to health facilities)
-        Number of healthcare consultations
-        Number of women who attended ANC visits (New and re-visits)
-        % of HH in the target area with basic knowledge on gender based violence

-        % HH with 2 water containers (as per SPHERE Standard)
-        % of households in the target area who know at least three critical times for hand washing
-        Number of staff trained

The above baseline data should be sub aggregated into host community data and refugees' data, disaggregated by sex, age and disability and should allow for comparison with the end line report data.

The purpose of this baseline study will be to provide an information base against which to monitor and assess an intervention's progress and effectiveness during implementation and after it is completed. The data collected will form a basis against which the degree and quality of change during an intervention's implementation will be measured. Therefore some data might be available from the secondary sources but will be included in the baseline to form the baseline against which the end line will be measured/ compared.

Scope of Work: The baseline study will take a sample of community members and other stakeholders from the above-mentioned locations. The assignment shall generally be divided in the following summary steps;
·        Developing data collection tools based on the indicators and information needed.
·        Defining the sample size households and individuals from the population targeted on this data collection
·        Oversee remotely (no travel in-countries possible/ planned) the pre-testing and overall data collection
·        Consolidate and analyze the data collected
·        Produce draft and final reports for this assignment

Duration of the baseline: The baseline study shall be undertaken in the months of August and September 2020.

Methodology: The consultant is expected to propose scientifically, culturally and socially appropriate approaches that will be used to answer the questions raised in this ToR.
Mainly quantitative approach should be used as well as primary and secondary data in analysing the baseline survey findings. Additional propositions to be determined by the consultant and discussed before contracting to form part of this ToR. The consultant must demonstrate ability to remotely manage the survey by providing details of the process including the tools to be developed, formats and method

Therefore to achieve this the consultant is expected to:
·        Develop the primary and secondary data collection tools that will be used to collect information related to the above indicators
·        Clarify the population(households/ individuals) sample for each indicator from which the sampling shall be done to ensure statistical representative of the results
·        Provide oversight of the data collection process to the teams in the field in all three countries via remote management.

·        Make a draft report based on findings and final report writing based on the feedbacks from JOHANNITER team.

Process:
The baseline evaluation study shall be conducted in August ending September 2020.

Each country will have a team locally at project sites led by in country M&E officers who will do the selection of enumerators, training and data collection. Note that there is a possibility that the assignment shall be conducted simultaneously for Uganda and Kenya, while the data collection process in South Sudan will happen slightly later.

·        Inception meeting

·        Data collection tools, methodology and sampling development.
·        Remotely pre-test through the country teams
·        Oversee remotely the data collection
·        Consolidate and analyse data

The consultant is responsible to define the numbers of days required for the whole exercise in his/her proposal and possibly discussed later with Johanniter.
Each country M&E team will be in-charge of running the pre-testing and eventual data collection with guidance of the consultant as explained above.

In Kenya, the tools, once developed, need to be approved by UNHCR, which may take 2 weeks. This implies that there might be some days break in-between the various phases of the assignment. Also final questionnaire will incorporate the feedback from UNHCR in Kakuma after their reviews especially on data related to Kenyan indicators. But changes shall be integrated possibly for all 3 countries to maintain uniformity for common indicators.

The baseline study shall be undertaken within the following phases.
·        An inception meeting with the consultant with the JOHANNITER and possibly partners to familiarize the parties with each other.
