Title: Request for Proposal (RFP) for Media Services For Advocacy/Awareness-Raising Campaign in the Lead Up to the UN HLM on TB in 2023

The UNOPS Geneva office is hosting the Stop TB Partnership Secretariat (STBP) as of 1 January 2015, providing a range of financial and administrative support services to various units of the STBP secretariat. The STBP, under the direction of the Executive Secretary, is leading the way to a world without tuberculosis (TB), a curable disease but still kills three people every minute. Founded in 2001, the Partnership's mission is to serve every person vulnerable to TB and ensure that high-quality treatment is available to all who need it.

For global and country-level advocacy, the Stop TB Partnership is looking for proposals from media platforms that can partner with Stop TB Partnership to deliver a series of high-level virtual events, digital content, and promotional campaigns on tuberculosis (TB). The supplier should be an established media platform with a wide readership, especially in the development and global health community. The media platform should be reputable and recognizable to add value to Stop TB Partnership when events and contents are co-branded.

The objective of the media partnership is to support an advocacy/awareness-raising campaign in the lead up to the UN High-Level Meeting (UN HLM) on TB in 2023, improving visibility and boosting outreach to the target audience, professionals with a specific interest in the global health arena, including donors, government officials, civil society and stakeholders.

Scope of Work
The scope of work includes:
  • A minimum of at least one event per year (one high-level virtual event).
  • A series of digital contents on thematic areas identified by the Stop TB Partnership.
  • A minimum of at least one annual digital campaign.

  • A digital campaign approach to be delivered and which will include the following elements/activities:
    • Organise at least one high-level virtual event
    • Develop an engagement strategy with an identified plan for promotion;

    • Identify and recommend influencers and other key figures to support the campaign;

    • Develop critical campaign content assets.
  • A specified number of media assets/pieces will be produced:
    • Videos for social media use;
    • Social media graphics and tiles; and
    • Infographics.
  • Produce a range of complementary written outputs on TB related issues for publication. The exact format of the products remains to be defined, depending on the media context and opportune moments. However, standard output formats that will be considered include op-eds, questions & answers with influencers in the global health and development space, and feature articles sent to targeted audiences lists established during the target audiences identification process.
  • Leverage Stop TB Partnership’s and other identified media channels to enlarge reach.
Bidder Requirements
  • The company should have a proven track record of organizing events with a minimum of 7 years of continuous experience in media relations and large multi platform awareness raising event management for/with desired key target audiences
