Invitation for Bid to consultants for assessment of COEs (Teaching Hospitals) renovation need

In more than 20 countries around the world, EngenderHealth works to improve the health and well-being of people by sharing expertise in sexual and reproductive health and transforming the quality of health care.

EngenderHealth is implementing DFID funded Family Planning by Choice (FPbC) programme in collaboration with the Federal Ministry of Health (FMOH) and project partners with the aim of  accelerate Ethiopia’s achievement of its FP2020 commitments. The FPbC project aims to create systems that ensure service providers are sufficiently trained, mentored, and regularly supported and assessed to have the necessary skills to address unmet need and reach vulnerable and underserved populations.  This project intends to establish Centre of Excellence (CoE) for Sexual Reproductive Health (SRH) with particular focus on family planning and safe abortion care (FP/SAC) at 11 teaching hospitals in Ethiopia. The CoE are planned to serve as models for service delivery, in-service training, mentorship and research. The CoEs will in turn train, mentor and provide supportive supervision for 110 general/primary hospitals to become “Quality Assurance Hubs” (QAHs) (each CoE clustered with 10 QAHs), which in turn will mentor health center in their catchment area on FP/SAC.

Following the initial step of identifying the appropriate teaching hospitals for the CoEs (with the FMoH), EngenderHealth have conducted assessments of gaps in quality and resource, both of facilities and staff. Most institutions lack the necessary infrastructure and human resource to meet service standards.
