Outbreaks can overwhelm weak or fragile health systems that lack the tools, infrastructure, policies, and systems to keep communities healthy and safe. Timely detection, preparedness, and appropriate response are essential for limiting both the loss of human life and crippling political and socio-economic impact of disease outbreaks.

This study compared the yield of TB among contacts of multidrug-resistant tuberculosis (MDR-TB) index cases with that of drug-sensitive TB (DS-TB) index cases in a program setting. The yield of TB among contacts of MDR-TB and DS-TB using GeneXpert was high as compared to population-level prevalence. The likelihood of diagnosing RR (Rifampicin Resistant)-TB among contacts of MDR-TB index cases is higher in comparison with contacts of DS-TB index cases. The use of GeneXpert in DS TB contact investigation has an added advantage of diagnosing RR cases in contrast to using the nationally recommended AFB microscopy for DS TB contact investigation.

The purpose of this assignment is to support the MoH and provide international expertise to develop a strategy on improving regulations on the bioequivalence of generic medicines in line with European Union (EU) practices.

Building Success is a series of guides offering practical, concrete, and innovative approaches that have proven effective in strengthening the response to HIV/AIDS and tuberculosis in Nigeria. Each of the four guides can stand alone, but they will be most effective if used as components of an integrated package.

The Ukrainian Ministry of Health (UMoH), working with Management Sciences for Health (MSH) in support of the US Agency for International Development’s (USAID) SAFEMed project, is seeking information on how an interested contractor could develop and implement a national medicine verification (serialization) practice.

In most countries, tuberculosis (TB) services are decentralized up to the most peripheral health facilities and often into the community. On the other hand, HIV/AIDS services are generally much more centralized because scale-up of services, especially of antiretroviral therapy (ART), started only quite recently.

Tuberculosis (TB) remains a major public health problem in the regions of East, Central, and Southern Africa (ECSA). Because TB is an airborne disease, its transmission is facilitated by the movement of people across internal and national borders.

We build strong health systems—systems that offer every individual access to high-quality, affordable health services. Systems that can stop an epidemic in its tracks. Systems that can withstand the shocks of an economic meltdown or a conflict.

The objective of this study was to describe the conceptual and implementation approach of selected digital health technologies that were tailored in various resource-constrained countries. Drawing from our multi-year institutional experience in more than 20 high disease-burden countries that aspire to meet the 2030 United Nations Sustainable Development Goal 3, we screened internal project documentation on various digital health tools that provide clarity in the conceptual and implementation approach. Taking into account geographic diversity, we provide a descriptive review of five selected case studies from Bangladesh (Asia), Mali (Francophone Africa), Uganda (East Africa), Mozambique (Lusophone Africa), and Namibia (Southern Africa). A key lesson learned is to harness and build on existing governance structures. The use of data for decision-making at all levels needs to be cultivated and sustained through multi-stakeholder partnerships. The next phase of information management development is to build systems for triangulation of data from patients, commodities, geomapping, and other parameters of the pharmaceutical system. A well-defined research agenda must be developed to determine the effectiveness of the country- and regional-level dashboards as an early warning system to mitigate stock-outs and wastage of medicines and commodities.

The overall objective of this baseline study is to help gather or generate information as a point of reference on the health condition of the population living in the project supported health zones, the management and supervision capacity of health services decentralized entities,  the situation and barriers for access to health services, the quality of health services, and health knowledge,

Over six years (2011-2017), the USAID-funded Leadership, Management, and Governance (LMG) Project strengthened health systems to deliver more responsive services to more people.

Management Sciences for Health, Inc. would like to issue amendment no. 1 to Request for Proposal (RFP) – IHSA-2018-001 for the Baseline Study in support of the Integrated Health Services Activity in Benin.

RFP No. IHSA-2018-001 Budget Template

USAID’s Benin Integrated Health Services Activity (IHSA) is issuing request for proposals (RFP) No.

The primary goal of the Challenge TB (CTB) project in Afghanistan is to assist the NTP to reach its strategic objective of increasing TB case notifications by at least 8% annually through comprehensive TB care and prevention activities.

In high TB- and HIV-burden settings, the two diseases reinforce each other and share common risk factors. Single, categorical services provided to persons with multiple, related risk factors miss opportunities to diagnose, treat, and prevent TB and/or HIV.

The Jhpiego-led, USAID-funded Strengthening Human Resources for Health (HRH) project has focused on long-term and medium-term goals for health sector human resources development priorities earmarked by health sector leaders and policy makers in Ethiopia.

The Abuja Declaration (WHO 2011), which reported on investments in health, noted that funding targets are being missed, both domestically and in terms of international assistance.
