South-to-South Consultants


The DHS Program is developing a certification system to strengthen and expand our existing network of individual and institutional South-to-South consultants who provide both short- and long-term technical assistance in multiple countries. Consultants help build and reinforce capacity in host countries and across regions. Strengthening their capacity in providing high-quality technical assistance in DHS survey design, implementation, management, monitoring, and evaluation is critical. 

The certification system will facilitate cost-effective and sustainable technical exchange. The system includes learning paths for new and existing consultants in key technical areas along the survey continuum: survey management, sampling, data processing, biomarker collection, dissemination, and analysis. The DHS Program will also continue to expand the consultant network.
