Share-Net International is pleased to share an open call for proposals for the Mid-Term Review of the five-year strategic plan (2018-2022).

Background

Share-Net International (SNI) is the knowledge platform on Sexual and Reproductive Health and Rights (SRHR), funded by the Dutch Ministry of Foreign Affairs (MoFA). SNI is a membership network of non-governmental organisations (NGOs), researchers, policymakers, implementers, young people, advocates, students, the media and companies operating in the SRHR field. We currently have hubs in 7 countries who refer to themselves as Share-Net: Bangladesh, Burkina Faso, Burundi, Colombia, Ethiopia, Jordan, and the Netherlands. At SNI, we focus on strengthening the role that knowledge can play in developing evidence-based policies and practices and ensuring that resources are used strategically and to maximum effect.

Each hub has a local secretariat and a steering committee that provides strategic guidance to the secretariat. The overall platform SNI is guided by a board representing the members and all hubs. SNI and the hubs bring together its members through different activities, which include but are not limited to: Communities of Practice, a bi-annual Co-Creation Conference, grants-making structure, the Share-Net International Rapid Improvement Model (SHIRIM), thematic events, capacity-building for young researchers, etc.

Request for a Midterm Review of Share-Net International

Share-Net International works under the 2018-2022 five year strategic plan and embarked on a new five year partnership with the Dutch MoFA since the start of 2020. In order to take stock of the progress to date and to provide input into a new strategic plan (2023-2027), SNI requests the services of an independent evaluation team to conduct a midterm review. This Terms of Reference sets out the scope of the midterm review and contains all the information to develop a proposal.

Objectives of the Midterm Review

The objectives of the midterm review are to:

  1. Assess how SNI has been relevant, effective, efficient, coherent and sustainable in serving the global SRHR community through the global knowledge platform on SRHR
  2. Facilitate a reflection among SNI staff on the what is working well and what can be done differently in the coming years (2022-2024) to serve the needs of the Share-Net members best.
  3. Provide succinct and validated recommendations to SNI that can be used to modify and improve strategies.

The findings of the midterm review will be used as input for the new strategic plan (2023-2027).
