The BID Initiative
Request for proposals for technical development and production support for electronic immunization registry in Tanzania
The BID Initiative is grounded in the belief that better data, plus better decisions, will lead to better health outcomes. Its vision is to empower countries to enhance immunization and overall health service delivery through improved data collection, quality, and use. Reaching this vision requires investments in information system products, practices, people, and packaging.
PATH is soliciting proposals from qualified firms with capacity to provide technical development and production support for electronic immunization registry (EIR) for the Tanzania Ministry of Health, Community Development, Gender, Elderly and Children (MOHCDGEC). The selected firm must be locally based and able to sustainably provide ongoing development and production support for EIR being rolled out in selected regions and potentially scaled to the whole of Tanzania.
The selected firm will be expected to build a team with capacity to provide ongoing support throughout the product lifecycle, with support contracts renewed and reviewed annually, initially not exceeding the duration of the BID Initiative, and later transitioned to the Ministry. The MOHCDGEC expects the selected firm to support the product as an open source.
Additional details and requirements are identified in the RFP. Interested parties are requested to review the RFP below and confirm their interest no later than Monday, October 17, 2016.
Request for applications to use advocacy to strengthen markets and improve access to essential health products in Bangladesh and Nigeria
The role of markets in expanding access to essential health products is gaining increased global attention. Well-functioning markets not only foster equitable access to health care products and services, they also create more sustainable programs and support public health impact. Yet too often markets fall short, and lifesaving commodities and services remain inaccessible to those in need. While markets can be strengthened through a number of different market-based interventions, advocacy to create and sustain an enabling policy environment for health product markets is fundamental.
PATH is seeking applications from two partner organizations to develop and implement an advocacy strategy to strengthen the national or subnational policy environment for markets to improve access to specific maternal and/or newborn health products. PATH is seeking applications from partner organizations in two countries: Bangladesh and Nigeria. Applicant organizations must be registered/incorporated as a nongovernmental or nonprofit organization in Bangladesh or Nigeria, and local organizations will be prioritized. Please see the request for application below for additional information about grant deliverables and activities funded by the grant.
PATH will award up to US$50,000 for a period of approximately seven months (January 2017–July 2017). Funding will expire July 31, 2017. Applications are now being accepted and are due no later than 11:59pm ET on November 4, 2016. Please direct any questions about this opportunity to email@example.com.
