1. Summary and Background
The Canadian Partnership for Women and Children’s Health (CanWaCH) is currently accepting proposals to develop a report on global health, the economy and COVID-19, bringing together the voices of global health experts to inform CanWaCH and its members’ knowledge of global public health policies and the implications of COVID-19 on health systems strengthening (henceforth referred to as “the report”).
CanWaCH catalyzes Canadian collaboration to deepen effectiveness in improving women’s and children’s health in communities around the world. Our more than 100 members are instrumental in reducing maternal and child mortality, promoting accountability to women, adolescents and children, seeking innovation, generating research and supporting monitoring and evaluation.
2. Project Summary and Deliverables

Therefore, CanWaCH is seeking to contract a health economist to assist CanWaCH in developing technical guidance for members, rooted in a robust understanding of the current global context. Specifically, CanWaCH seeks to support its members through:
With these objectives in mind, CanWaCH is seeking a Consultant to develop a dynamic and accessible report, building upon CanWaCH’s existing resources (ie. 100 Days of a Pandemic Report). This report is intended to provide practical and technical guidance to CanWaCH members who are implementing projects. Therefore, it must be linked to Canada’s Feminist International Assistance Policy and rooted in an approach from a feminist, rights-based lens.
