Consultancy for Donor Scoping and Engagement in MENA Region

Purpose & scope:
Increasing HIV infections and deaths in in the Middle East and North Africa (MENA) region—reflect massive underspending on HIV responses among most of the countries in this region. Gaps in knowledge of HIV status are especially large in MENA, where viral suppression and treatment coverage are lower than any other region. This region is also far behind in fully integrating HIV counselling and testing with sexual and reproductive health (SRHR) services.
The current gaps in HIV services across MENA reflect long-standing challenges, including restrictive sociocultural norms that are mirrored in proscriptive laws and policies, and widespread stigma and discrimination. Modest political leadership on HIV is reflected in the low financial investment in the AIDS response and advancing SRH. Poor access to quality and integrated services are further compounded by widespread humanitarian crises, including protracted conflicts and other forms of political instability that make MENA home to the world’s largest migrant, refugee, and internally displaced populations.
Progress towards the 2030 Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) will depend on opening space for civil society and community-led organizations, and on linking the HIV response to efforts to achieve universal health coverage, expand social protection systems and enhance access to SRHR. None of this will be possible without stronger commitment from governments and donors, including greater domestic funding and social contracting.
In line with the above, the International Planned Parenthood Federation/Arab World Regional Office (IPPF/AWRO) and UNAIDS Regional Support Team MENA are seeking a consultant or consulting company to conduct a comprehensive donor scoping exercise with a view to identifying and securing new funding streams for the medium and longer term in support of sexual reproductive health and rights, women’s empowerment (including engaging men and boys on gender equality) and eliminating gender-based violence in the MENA region. Specifically, the consultant will lead the donor mapping process with a view to:

1. Identify new potential institutional donors as governments, large foundations, UN and donor trust funds, private sector, family foundations as well as high-net- worth-individuals (HNWI) whose priorities align with both organizations’ objectives and regional priorities, providing contact names or suggested grant application avenues.
2. Develop a fundraising and donor engagement strategy, including identifying regional specific priorities and activities in need of funding for the coming 3-6 years.

Tasks:
1. To lead on a comprehensive donor scoping exercise that explores opportunities among both organizations traditional donor base as well as opportunities from less traditional sources – such as corporations, private sector and HNWI, particularly in the Gulf Countries. This should include a detailed analysis of donor architecture (looking at both national, regional and global levels) and an identification of priority issues mapped against both organizations strategic priorities. Opportunities to influence donor priorities should also be identified.
2. To produce a report detailing the results of the donor scoping exercise, including contacts of focal persons and regional specific resource mobilization advocacy.
3. To develop a fundraising and donor engagement strategy for the coming 3 to 6 years period in line with IPPF’s upcoming new Strategic Framework period (2023-2028) and UNAIDS’s Strategy 2021-2026.

Timeline:
It is expected that the work will start in mid-August 2022, with Tasks 1 and 2 completed by early September 2022 followed by a discussion with the concerned Directors to review results before the completion of Task 3, which would then be, completed end of September or early October.
