REQUEST FOR PROPOSALS

Comic Book Illustrator

Background

Empowering Evidence-Driven Advocacy (EEDA) is a three-year project (2017-2020) implemented by

Population Reference Bureau (PRB) and the International Youth Alliance for Family Planning (IYAFP)

and supported by the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation.

EEDA’s goals are to improve the implementation of existing family planning policies, especially those that

support youth access to and use of contraception; and generate new funding and policy commitments for

family planning in response to evidence-driven advocacy. It aims to achieve these goals by increasing

youth advocates’ capacity to measure policy implementation and hold governments accountable, and

increasing decisionmakers’ use of evidence.

Project Description

EEDA is partnering with the Coalition for Health Promotion and Social Development (HEPS –Uganda) to

create a comic book to convince parliamentarians that family planning investments are critical for

Uganda’s overall development and get them on board as family planning champions. The comic book will

likely show multiple characters discussing the benefits of family planning, along with some introductory

text at the beginning of each section.

• Illustrations must follow project’s branding guidelines and dimensions provided by PRB.

o Paper Size: A4 (two panels per page)

o Illustration Style: Flat (see example)
