Christian Blind Mission & Beit Cure Zambia Partnership
The Beit Cure Hospital Zambia (BCH) is a recognized pediatric teaching hospital that provides free treatment to children with treatable Orthopedic and Ear, Nose & Throat conditions.
The BCH working with the Christian Blind Mission (CBM International) with funding from the German Government Federal Ministry of Economic Cooperation and Development (BMZ) is currently implementing a project focusing on “Strengthening ENT & Audiological Services in Zambia” primarily being implemented in the Southern Province.
The rationale of this study
Hearing impairments are accompanied by a high degree of exclusion, more difficult social and economic participation, and hence an increased risk of poverty. About half of the hearing impairments could be prevented or their effects mitigated by medical and rehabilitative measures. A fundamental challenge is that similar to other contexts the focus in ENT is on Nose and Throat diseases with the alienation of the Ear diseases due to very limited data, experience, resources, and activities on ear-related diseases in Zambia. At the same time, however, an increasing number of actors are becoming active in the ENT sector and Audiology space and this requires strategic orientation.
It is on this background that BCH and its cooperating partner CBM responded to the above situation by setting out to implement the BMZ ENT project in 2018, covering Lusaka, Central and Southern provinces. After implementing the 3-year project (2019-2021), BCH & CBM are seeking to engage the services of a Consultant to conduct an End of Project Evaluation. The aim of this evaluation shall be to provide evidence of progress achieved during the life-cycle of the project as well as provide guidance on the various outcomes that have been yielded by the project (both intended and unintended) during its duration. The evaluation also aims at deriving lessons learned and recommendations to improve future project implementation as well as to help in the planning and implementation of the upcoming National ENT Strategic Plan (2022-2026).
