  • The National Primary Health Care Development Agency (NPHCDA) was established by Decree 29 of 1992 in order to sustain the federal assistance to states and local governments in provision of primary health care (PHC) services.  The agency supports the states and local governments in developing a sustainable system of PHC services that are accessible, affordable and of good quality through the participation of individuals, families and communities in partnership with government and non-governmental organizations.

    At the 53rd National Council on Health in March 2010, the Maternal, Newborn and Child Health week (MNCH week) was adopted by the Federal Government of Nigeria through the Federal Ministry of Health (FMoH). Institutionalizing the MNCHW, is one of the priority actions needed to achieve the first strategic objective of the 2007 Integrated Maternal, Newborn and Child Health Strategy which is to improve access to good quality health services in order to reduce child mortality and improve maternal health.  The NPHCDA serves as the coordinating body and provides resource mobilization with partners at different levels for effective coordination, build capacity of health workers, provide guidelines, training and support states for effective implementation of MNCH weeks

    NPHCDA, partners with many stakeholders to implement the bi-annual campaign on Vitamin A Supplementation through the MNCH week. The MNCH week is a weeklong event that aims to deliver a package of high-impact, low-cost maternal, newborn and child health interventions, proven to be highly effective in both reducing mortality rates and improving mother and child health. These interventions include Focused Antenatal Care (FANC), immunization, vitamin A supplementation and de-worming, zinc/lo-ORS, nutrition assessment, long lasting insecticide-treated nets (LLINs) distribution, birth registration, health promotion (hand washing, early initiation and exclusive breast feeding (EBF), adequate complementary feeding (ACF), hygiene and sanitation and  HCT).

    Post evaluation coverage survey (PECS) recently carried out by HKI in some states showed that most caregivers got information about MNCH week through several means but those who knew the benefits of the campaign, heard through the health workers. Meanwhile only very few number of health workers knew the primary reason for the administration of  the intervention administered to children while most of the health workers had poor knowledge of the importance of the interventions. 

    NPHCDA in collaboration with key stakeholders plan to introduce a standardized training module with comprehensive content using the National MNCH week training manual and materials for healthcare providers at National, state and Local government levels.  NPHCDA wants to engage a Web Application designer to develop the online and off-line training package that will be used for the training of frontline health workers at the National, State and Local Government Levels for the MNCH week campaigns.

    • The web design component of the online /off-line training module includes a range of deliverables to ensure that a high quality and easy to use web application is developed to fit the content developed for the module. The national priorities include:
    • Design of a standardized computer-based MNCH week training web application for training front line health workers
    • Development of the MNCH week training delivery package for National, State and LGA levels
    • Development of a standardized MNCH week training video package that can be used offline for group training of health workers at ward and community level
    • Development of a standardized web-based MNCH week training package that can be used online to train National and State level personnel
    • Development of quality assurance processes

    The Assignment

    Objective
    The main objective is to develop a standardized MNCH Week web-based training module that is comprehensive, covers all the MNCH week interventions, easy to use and comprehend by health workers at all levels.

    Expected output and deliverables

    • NPHCDA requires the service of a consultant as a web application designer to specifically perform the following tasks:
    • Develop training design for MNCHW training of frontline health workers
    • Develop MNCHW training delivery packages for National, state and LGA levels
    • Develop standardized MNCHW online (internet) and offline (video) training packages with the following features;
    • The online training should be flexible and accessible to participants for a certain number of weeks. Each module should also be restricted to a certain number of days after which if exceeded, participant should be logged off and he/she has to start from the beginning if test has not been passed.
    • There should be inbuilt participant knowledge assessment (test) at the end of each training module. The participant should also be given an option to save result once a test has been passed. So he can log off and come back to the module later to start from where he/she stopped.
    • The offline training is for participants that do not have internet. There should be a restriction on both types so that people can’t work with both simultaneously. For example, a person should not read offline and answer questions online
    • Develop simplified training assessment tool for the different levels
    • Develop an outline on the usage of the package from registration of participants to the printing of the certificate after the assessment
    • Develop the assessment tracking system for both online and off-line participants
    • Facilitate pre-testing of the training package developed at both the National (with FMOH and NPHCDA officers) and at least in three states from three geopolitical zones
    • Develop an instruction manual on how to use the web application
    • Revise and finalize training delivery packages.
    • Produce facilitators guide for the different packages

    Expected functionalities of the training application (s)

    • There should be a time-limit for a selected training - both online and offline. We expect that when a user selects a training it must be completed within a specified period (this is different from the time allotted for the test itself).
    • The printable formats should include pdf and jpg - These two formats are commonly known to be immutable.
    • Resuming the training/test after logging off from the training/test session should automatically take the user back to where he/she stopped before logging off.
    • The offline training package should be accessible from a user’s computer storage device or computer where the training package has been downloaded
    • The interface should have a feature to select which mode of learning to select - either Online, or Offline.
    • A group training and assessment feature to should be added to the offline mode with the functionalities to:
    • Allow multiple registrations of users.
    • Allow multiple selections of users for training sessions
    • Allow trainings to be taken for multi-user led by a facilitator
    • Assessment to be taken by the facilitator
