ChildFund International (www.childfund.org) is a US-registered, non-profit child and youth development organization working in Africa, Asia, and the Americas. Our goal is to empower children and youth, their families, and their communities so that they can enjoy healthier, safer, and more productive lives. ChildFund collaborates with governments, communities, and civil society organizations to promote the health and wellbeing of children across all lifestages.
ChildFund requires the services of an external consultant (or firm) to draft a manuscript and an evidence brief based on the results of a completed tuberculosis (TB) and nutrition project in India. The project, completed in partnership with USAID (United States Agency for International Development) and India’s flagship innovations in financing platform, introduced the world’s first impact bond to improve nutritional status and treatment cure of TB patients in 2019. The overarching goal of the project was to improve treatment compliance, nutrition status and treatment cure rate of 3,000 notified TB patients in Madhya Pradesh, India. The deliverables of this consultancy will be used to highlight and share the effectiveness of the intervention and its phased scaling to provide evidence for future grants acquisition.
