The Ministry of Health (MoH) has led the scaling up of the Community-Based Total Sanitation (STBM) approach that aims to facilitate the sanitation and hygiene behavior change in the community, using the triggering method. The STBM consists of 5 pillars, including 1). Stop open defecation (ODF), 2). Handwashing with soap (CTPS), 3). Drinking water and food treatment, 4). Solid waste management, and 5). Wastewater management. These five sanitation and hygiene behaviors are known as the 5 Pillars of STBM. This approach has proved effective in accelerating access to adequate sanitation in Indonesia and facilitating the community to achieve ODF. MoH launched the STBM-SMART application nationally in July 2016. The application was used by sanitarians, district, and provincial health officers, relevant ministries and the public to monitor and report the progress of access to sanitation at the community level. This system adopted the MDG with indicators with 4 types of access: 1). Permanent & Hygienic toilet, 2). Semi-permanent & Hygienic toilet, 3). Shared toilet, and 4). Open defecation. However, since the government has adopted safely managed sanitation and scaled up the implementation of other pillars of STBM, the application needs to be adapted to meet the requirement to track the sanitation progress. The government realized that having limited data on access to safely managed sanitation and hygiene behaviors created challenges in designing, implementing, and funding these STBM and safe sanitation interventions.

In line with the national development agenda, within the UNICEF Country Program Action Plan 2021-2025, UNICEF will support the MoH in developing a new monitoring system that could provide more detailed information on the quality of on-site sanitation according to the national sanitation indicators and other hygiene practices such as hand washing and drinking water treatment practice at household and solid and wastewater management.

UNICEF Indonesia is looking qualified consultant to support the Ministry of Health (MoH) in improving the STBM e-monev by reviewing the current indicators across the five pillars and integrating the indicators of safely managed sanitation at the household level. This also includes designing data structure, interface & database management system, field trial, and finalization.

How can you make a difference?

Under the supervision of WASH Specialist, the consultant will deliver the following outputs: 1. Conduct regular consultation meetings with MoH and UNICEF to discuss the work progress, methodology and approach to address issues and related programmatic aspects. 2. Review the existing STBM Monitoring systems, data infrastructure, database management systems, business operations workflows, user data requirements, user/user views, and design visualizations. 3. Design data structures, including new data modules, recommend types of software and hardware infrastructure, including user views, input, process, output, programming/coding, entity relationship tables (ERT), entity relationship design (ERD), and data diagrams flow (DFD). 4. Design user interfaces to improve user data input experience while using. 5. Design a queuing system and save mode that allows data to be stored in the browser cache until it is uploaded (even if the user is offline and the computer is off). 6. Design a database management system for all data parameters and indicators. 7. Design in-system data analytics for key data parameters and indicators. 8. Design interactive information visualization dashboards. 9. Ensure system compatibility with many internet browsers (at least with Safari, Chrome, Firefox, and Microsoft Edge), including mobile browsers. 10. Define the minimum computer specification requirements for the system. 11. Conduct field trials in 3 provinces: DKI Jakarta, Banten, and West Java, involving a technical team (1 Ministry of Health, 1 UNICEF, 1 Provincial Health Office, and 1 District Health Office officer as facilitators). The onsite trial aims to observe the system's acceptance in IT infrastructure, facilities, and human resources and identify various challenges to determine troubleshooting and improvement options. Field locations must represent rural and urban locations with the following details: - One field visit with a maximum of 3 days (including travel time) covering a minimum of one Puskesmas in each province - DKI Jakarta: South Jakarta (urban) - Banten: Pandeglang District (rural) - West Java: Bandung District (rural) 12. Prepare user guides (editable electronic documents and full HD videos). 13. In collaboration with the Directorate of Environmental Health, the consultant is also expected to facilitate a series of consultation meetings and workshops with the national and subnational stakeholders to review the new STBM e-monev design and to run a trial of the STBM e-monev system upgrade with selected users.
