USAID / Kenya
Statement of Work – MSP Consultant
Health Systems Consultant
Background: USAID / Kenya and East Africa is a large, full-service Mission.
Sectors targeted are: health, governance, agriculture, private sector development, environmental conservation, and education.
The Office of Health, Population and Nutrition (HPN) programs are expansive, providing quality health care to millions of Kenyans nationwide through a mix of integrated and vertical services designed to strengthen local capacity.
It offers life-saving treatment to over one million HIV/AIDS patients on antiretroviral drug therapy.
The FY 2018 health budget is over $400 million; the estimated five-year budget is over $2 billion. Kenya is one of the largest recipients of resources through the President’s Emergency Plan for AIDS Relief (PEPFAR).
The USAID/Kenya East Africa Mission has developed a number of tools to assess parts of the health system (e.g., supply chain, HRH, DRM) and is interested in assessing the existing tools for how they could be combined into a single tool to facilitate rapid assessments of county-level capacity.
To date there is an existing high-level summary, but the Mission would like to dive into developing a single tool for internal use only. The results would inform the Mission’s future planning in health system strengthening.
Scope of Work
To fulfil the above need, MSP seeks a consultant to review and combine the existing tools into one master tool and validate its metrics, indicators, etc. with appropriate internal stakeholders.
Deliverable: Draft country level health systems assessment tool for USAID/KEA internal use.
Work location: Nairobi, Kenya
