Expanding Social Health Protection for Women at Risk of Migration in Honduras

Background

The Local Health System Sustainability Project (LHSS) is funded by the United States Agency for International Development (USAID) and aims to help low-and-middle-income countries transition to sustainable, self-financed health systems as a means to support high performing health systems. The LHSS Latin America and the Caribbean (LAC) Bureau Activity (LAC Bureau Activity) aims to expand social health protection (SHP) for women migrants and individuals at risk of migration in the LAC Region. The LHSS program in Honduras will work with the Honduran government and local stakeholders to support improvements to social health protection that consider the health needs, capabilities, and preferences of women who are at risk of migration

Objective:

The objective of this award is to find a local partner to lead the in-country implementation of work plan interventions in Honduras.

Approach:

To accomplish this, LHSS will collaborate with a “subcontractor” to engage with the Government of Honduras (GOH) and local partners from the private sector and civil society, to assess the needs of the population of women at risk of migration and to co-design a process for sustainably expanding existing SHP mechanisms for women at risk of migration.

Working through the local partner engaged through this RFP, LHSS will supplement the desk review to conduct a rapid country assessment that will take a deeper look at the SHP experiences, needs, and challenges facing vulnerable women in Honduras, who are at risk of migration. Findings from the literature review will be supplemented by key informant interviews with government agencies, the private sector, international partners, communities, and women’s groups.

The subcontractor will engage key stakeholders, including government partners (e.g., Ministry of Health, Ministry of Finance, Social Security), USAID mission officials, civil society organizations (e.g., CBOs and NGOs) working on health, SHP, and/or migration issues, international/multilateral organizations working on health, migration and/or SHP, and private health providers offering services to vulnerable women to convene a stakeholder workshop. The purpose of the workshop is to discuss and agree on actions needed to improve existing SHP platforms for women at risk of migration and establish a steering committee that will serve as an advocacy and advisory forum for improving SHP for women at risk of migration. With support from the steering committee and national counterparts, the subcontractor will develop a roadmap for the adaptation and phased implementation of the social health protection platform to improve SHP for women at risk of migration.

Expected tasks

The Offeror will be responsible for:

  1. Conducting a rapid country assessment to understand the Honduras context for expanding social health protection for women at risk of migration. The Offeror will support data gathering to understand the following: available resources and initiatives to improve SHP for vulnerable women; gender and social determinants of health and their impact on women’s decisions to migrate; barriers and gaps in health coverage for women at risk of migration; and financing for social health protection and opportunities to leverage investment from private sector actors and multilateral financial funds.
  1. Organizing a stakeholder workshop with relevant stakeholders (MOH, MOF, and USAID Mission officials, multilaterals, international partners, civil society, CBOs, private sector, etc.) to gather consensus on required adaptations needed to improve existing SHP platforms for women at risk of migration, and the process that will be required to move forward with these and establish a steering committee.
  2. Alongside the steering committee, develop a detailed roadmap for the adaptation and phased implementation of the social health protection platform to improve SHP for women at risk of migration.
  3. Serves as the primary contact with LHSS headquarters team and as the LHSS local liaison with USAID Honduras, government counterparts, and local ‎partners/stakeholders to provide activity updates, share experiences and learnings from activity interventions, and participate in relevant meetings on behalf of LHSS

  • Country Assessment Report
  • Consultation Workshop
  • Roadmap for strengthening a social health protection platform for women at risk of migration
