Project Overview and Role&
The purpose of the proposed USAID Integrated Health Program (IHP) Task Order (TO 6) Contract is to implement priority primary health interventions in Ebonyi State to strengthen health systems at the state, Local Governance Health Authority, and the ward levels, as well as strengthen engagement with the state government. The objectives of the program are to (a) strengthen systems supporting primary health care services; (b) improve access to primary health care services; and, (c) increase quality of primary health care services. There are seven technical areas of focus: Health systems strengthening, maternal health, newborn health, child health, reproductive health/family planning, nutrition and malaria (RMNCH+NM).
The IHP goal is to contribute to state-level reductions in child and maternal morbidity and mortality and to increase the capacity of health systems (public and private) to sustainably support quality primary health care (PHC) services. TO 06 will be USAID’s principal primary health program service delivery activity in Ebonyi and will coordinate closely with other USAID activities and other development partner programs in the state. USAID will intentionally overlay this activity with other Mission programming to increase Government of Nigeria (GON) resources for primary health care (PHC) services, increase demand for PHC services, and improve access to essential commodities. The activity is expected to collaborate closely with those other implementing partners and will not undertake any activities already implemented by other USAID programs.
The State IHP Director shall be the principal point of contact in Ebonyi for procedural and substantive matters. The State IHP Director will take guidance from the Country Director and shall be responsible for ensuring quality control and the overall responsiveness of technical assistance provided under the award. The State IHP Director shall provide overall leadership management and direction for IHP in Ebonyi State. This individual will be expected to identify issues and risks related to program implementation in a timely manner and suggest appropriate program adjustments.
