Overview

Total Market Approach (TMA) Consultant

PSI Mozambique

June – August 2017 (64 days)

 

Who we are

We’re Population Services International (PSI), the world’s leading non-profit social marketing organization. We work to make it easier for people in the developing world to be healthy by providing access to products and services that range from mosquito nets to HIV testing.

There are over 9,000 “PSI’ers” around the world. It’s a motley group of entrepreneurs and professionals with a diverse range of backgrounds all the way from the medical industry to the music business, all with unique skills we bring to the job.

Partner with us!

The Consultant will provide guidance on several activities aimed at strengthening Mozambique’s public and private sectors for family planning and condoms. Specifically, the consultant will focus on two tracks:

 

  1. PSI Mozambique has conducted a family planning TMA landscaping activity focusing on adolescents (ages 16-24). The Mozambican Ministry of Health (MoH) and United Nations Population Fund (UNFPA) have expressed interest in partnering with PSI to better understand the total market approach.
  2. PSI Mozambique will be conducting a complimentary analysis focused more specifically on the national condom market to identify market opportunities and failures in the public condom market.

 

PSI Mozambique is looking for a TMA consultant who can help to engage national stakeholders to consult, refine and complete existing family planning work. The aim is for this work to be distilled into a form that can be used for national level circulation, vision, and advocacy in Mozambique.

 

We are looking for someone who has experience with market development or total market approaches in the global health arena to support our analysis and recommendations to optimize the Family Planning and Condom markets in Mozambique. Portuguese language skills are a plus.

Responsibilities

Your contribution

  • TMA summary document identifying use/need, market opportunities and failures, and priority actions to be taken to achieve 2020 targets.
  • Produce a TMA summary document identifying use/need, market opportunities and failures, and priority actions to be taken to “optimize condom use.”
  • Work with the national group to identify the roles, in the space of condoms and family planning services and products, of donors, NGOs, and national institutions, i.e., who does what and where are the gaps.
  • Lead a workshop, in collaboration with a local facilitator, to distill findings to relevant stakeholders, and a document that synthesizes these conclusions into an advocacy piece.

All activities should be based in TMA methodology, including the analysis approach and final presentations. This will be an opportunity to demonstrate thought leadership on the role of public, private, and social marketing contributions to Mozambique’s condom market.
