UN Women Vietnam is seeking for proposals from International Consultants as a team leader to work with a national team to conduct a costing study on the economic impacts of domestic violence in Viet Nam.

Deadline for submissions: 5.00 PM (Hanoi time, GMT+7), 25 August 2011

The general objective of the assignment is to undertake a costing study on the economic impacts of intimate partner violence in Viet Nam. The study will focus on the individual, direct and indirect costs of domestic violence at the household level. The study will primarily employ an accounting methodology or a bottom-up approach; measuring all resources consumed by individuals and then calculating the unit cost for each type of resource consumed. Due to the inconsistency in data and prevalence of different services or resources, different methodologies may be applied for calculating specific costs.

By conducting this study we want to estimate the total expenditure and lost opportunity costs of individuals due to domestic violence. This includes the individuals who have experienced violence and friends and families of that individual. This also includes the costs for the perpetrator of the violence and the missed opportunity costs of other members of the household including children. The study will focus on calculating the cost of various goods and services that are consumed as a direct consequence of the violence. The costs of productivity losses for paid and and unpaid labor will also be estimated as well as opportunity costs.

Specifically, the international consultant will undertake the following tasks:

A.    Review and determine final methodology.
B.    Develop and execute a detailed research plan
C.    Conduct a literature review, review data on prevalence of DV and mapping of cost categories, develop sampling strategy context
