The Eastern and Southern Africa Regional Learning Platform hosted a webinar on 11 May 2022 examining why it is important to align care systems in development and humanitarian contexts and provides practical examples from Kenya and Uganda.

The consultant will be the primary person responsible for the implementation of the research project. The total length of the consultancy is 20 days.
