  • MSH, a Non-Governmental Organisation with head office in Medford, USA, has been in existence for over 40 years implementing projects and programs all over the World MSH’s Leadership, Management and Sustainability Program (LMS) is a global five-year USAID funded Cooperative Agreement designed to develop leadership and management skills at all levels of health care organizations and programs to effectively address change and improve health outcomes in the areas of family planning, reproductive health, HIV and AIDS, infectious disease, and maternal and child health. In Nigeria, the LMS Program implements the Prevention organizational systems AIDS Care and Treatment Project (LMS Pro-ACT), a PEPFAR funded associate award with the goal of building the capacity of Nigeria’s public, private, and community sectors for sustainable HIV and AIDS and Tuberculosis (TB) prevention, control, care, and treatment. LMS Pro-ACT began operations in August 2009 taking over from the AIDS Care and Treatment (ACT) Project that started in October 2007. Up to July 2013, Pro-ACT supported 6 state governments in Kogi, Niger, Kwara, Kebbi, Adamawa and Taraba states, and operated 30 comprehensive HIV and AIDS treatment centers. In August 2013 the project received a modification which extended its life by one year and changed the geographical focus to the five states of Niger, Kwara, Kebbi, Sokoto and Zamfara.

    Currently the project now supports 41 comprehensive HIV and AIDS treatment centers and198 PMTCT/HTC sites in various health facilities. With its main office in Abuja, Nigeria, Pro-ACT is decentralized to the state government level and has offices in each of the 5 states that bring technical support closer to the areas of greatest need.

    With the ProACT Transition to States in view, it became pertinent to explore the possibility of equipping some selected high volume Health Facilities with the Electronic Medical Records (EMR) systems to improve service delivery. In the light of this, 3 States (Niger, Sokoto, and Kwara) were selected as pilot States to deploy this system and 16 sites are currently selected for scale up

    The overall purpose of this consultancy is to set up functional EMR in nine facilities in Niger State – with each consultant working with three facilities.
