Call For consultants

Call for Consultant to evaluate the ‘Building an Ecosystem of Global Health Advocates’ partnership project between Action for Global Health (AfGH) and Students for Global Health (SfGH)

Students for Global Health is a student-led network aiming to make change in global health equity through education, advocacy and community action. It convenes students from around thirty UK universities and affiliated student-led global health organisations. 

Action for Global Health (AfGH) convenes and represents the UK’s global health sector, with more than 50 member organisations made up of leading NGOs, research institutions, private consultancies and health experts working to promote and improve global health. Students for Global Health (SfGH) are a student-led charity with 30 branches at universities across the UK, reaching thousands of medical students from London to Aberdeen. Both networks are hosted by STOPAIDS; a membership network of 70 organisations with a 30 year history of engagement on International Development and HIV and AIDS. 

Call for proposals

In the summer of 2020 AfGH and SfGH commenced an 18 month partnership project which comes to an end on the 30th November 2021.  Across both of our organisations, our joint, long-term goal is sustained UK political, financial and programmatic leadership on global health.

We would like to evaluate our progress towards the long-term objectives of the ‘Building and Ecosystem of Global Health Advocates’ partnership project and identify learning opportunities to inform our work and new strategic plans.  The evaluation process will be split into 2 separate but iterative phases; the first phase will be an evaluation of SfGH’s progress during the initial phase of the project and the second phase will focus on both partners’ progress towards project objectives for the entirety of the project. This call is for the first part of the evaluation, focusing on SfGH’s progress from September 2020 – August 2021 and aims to capture input from SfGH National Committee members who led on delivering the initial phase of the project. A second request for proposals outlining the 2nd evaluation consultancy opportunity will be separately advertised in October 2021
