Purpose of the Consultancy

WHO is seeking consultants to develop policy recommendations to technical teams in the Division of Healthy Environments and Populations (DHP) at the Western Pacific Regional Office, and to facilitate and promote new strategic ways of working in the Division.


As more information has become available through the internet (e.g., journal articles, blogs, social media), Member States often have shorter timeframes for decision-making (especially in emergencies), and often request customized solutions to their own situations and contexts. As such, WHO requires a new approach to problem solving and processing large amounts of information from different fields in order to deliver quick solutions to meet the expectations and needs of our Member States.

Noncommunicable Diseases (NCDs) are the leading causes of death and disability in the Western Pacific. To accelerate progress, we need to support Member States in carrying out innovative, multi-sectoral, and holistic strategies that build on existing capacities, strengths and initiatives. DHP is recruiting short-term consultants to apply a hypotheses-driven approach to supporting Member States in tackling the challenge of NCDs.


Under the supervision of the Coordinator of the NCD Prevention and Health Promotion (PND) unit, the consultant(s) will support the development of ‘new ways of working in DHP’ and support the implementation of the Regional Action Framework on NCD Prevention and Control by performing the following functions.

Output: Use the hypothesis-driven approach to deliver recommendations to assigned technical teams (including country offices), which will include:

  • Conducting quantitative and qualitative research;
  • Support the development of materials such as issue papers, policy briefs, among others;
  • Support implementation of projects and interventions related to NCD prevention and control; and
  • Drafting reports and/or presentations with appropriate data, analyses, interviews, either through field participation or collections and analysis of available data.

Deliverables: Submission of monthly progress report along with outputs (e.g., presentations, reports) identified in the course of the work.
