Creative Associates International (Creative) is a dynamic and fast-growing professional services firm that specializes in international development in the areas of education, democratic transitions and stabilization in post-conflict environments. Based in Washington, D.C., the firm has field presence in 20 countries worldwide with a strong and diverse portfolio that includes global contracts with the U.S. Agency for International Development (USAID) and other clients including the U.S. Department of State and the U.S. Department of Defense. The firm has earned a solid reputation among its clients and missions worldwide and is well-regarded by competitors and partners alike.
The overarching goal of the Women for Women Health Initiative (W4H), funded by DFID, is to improve access to health care for women and children in five states of northern Nigeria (Jigawa, Kano, Katsina, Yobe and Zamfara) by increasing the number of female community health workers (CHEWs), nurses and midwives in training, by improving recruitment and retention of female health workers based in rural communities, and by improving coverage by female health workers of women of childbearing age.
W4H will create a Foundation Year Programme across all targeted health training institutions (Colleges of Nursing and Schools of Health Technology) to widen opportunities for girls and women. Currently only a small minority of girls access training due to financial constraints or their inability to meet the entry requirements. W4H will be led by Futures Group, in collaboration with Creative Associates and JHPIEGO. W4W is funded by DFID and implemented in collaboration with the Government of Nigeria.
The Foundation Year Expert (FYE) will lead efforts to establish a Foundation Year Program at 15 health training institutions in northern Nigeria. The Foundation Year is a stipend or bonding scheme which enables girls with poor or no exam results from secondary education to enroll in health training. It includes local recruitment of candidates and a package of living expenses, social support and curriculum that focuses on rural and primary health needs.
