Consultants for Baseline Survey on Gender and Domestic Violence Issues

I. Back ground and rationale:
Nordic Assistance to Vietnam (NAV) was established in 1994 as a consortium of three Nordic Non-Governmental Organizations. NAV’s three main program areas are community development, gender-based violence and HIV/AIDS. Under the theme Gender Based Violence, NAV will, in 2010 – 2012, continue the implementation of the project on “Promote gender equity – reduce domestic violence” in rural communes of TT Hue and Quang Tri provinces and expand the project to new areas of semi-urban setting in Da Nang and Hai Phong.
NAV is therefore seeking to recruit a consultant with substantial experience with gender and domestic violence issues and baseline data. The consultant will be responsible for conducting one baseline study on gender equity and domestic violence in selected districts and communes of Da Nang and Hai Phong.
