BACKGROUND INFORMATION
The USAID-funded Program to build Leadership and Accountability in Nigeria’s Health system (PLAN-Health) is implemented by Management Sciences for Health (MSH). This is a long-term trans-formative program designed to strengthen Institutional Capacity of select Public Sector Institutions (PSIs) and Civil Society Organizations (CSOs) for improved Health and HIV/AIDS service delivery across the three tiers of the Nigerian health sector. (Federal, State and Local).

The project’s interventions are designed around six Intermediate Results (IRs) outlined below, which align with World Health Organisation (WHO) recommended health systems building blocks as well as the National Strategic Health Development Plan (NSHDP).
Strengthen leadership and management practices of select PSIs and CSOs.
Develop and strengthen organizational systems (e.g., HR, Finance, HMIS, Supply Chain, Service Delivery, and Planning) of PSIs and CSOs.
Strengthen governance practices (e.g., accountability, board development, business development) of PSIs and CSOs.
Strengthen the coordination among PSIs at all levels and partnerships with CSOs.
Develop a new cadre of individuals and institutions providing technical assistance in management and leadership that meets international standards.
Strengthen the institutional capacity of NHIS, state counterparts, local communities and select CSOs to provide access to quality health services through sustainable community based health insurance programs.

The 5-year project began in July 2010 engaging with the Federal Ministry of Health’s Department of Planning Research and Statistics, (DPRS), the National Agency for the Control of AIDS (NACA), the National AIDS and STD Control Programme (NASCP), the National Health Insurance Scheme (NHIS), at the Federal level and their State corresponding agencies in Gombe and FCT. The project took on Akwa Ibom as a third state in July 2012.

Engagement at the Local Government Level did not really materialise until 2011 with a pilot of PMTCT improvement project in Gwagwalada area council of FCT. The Project also engaged the Country Coordinating Mechanism Secretariat (CCM) of the Global Fund as one of its client to which it provided Technical Assistance. As part of the Project’s mandate in developing individuals and institutions that have skills and practices effective in improving the HIV/AIDS sector, nine cohorts of the PEPFAR Fellowship programme were implemented to date with participants drawn mainly from the project’s focal states.

TO APPLY
As PLAN-Health enters its fifth year of program implementation (end date of June 2015), there is a need to document the strategies and interventions deployed across clients and Intermediate Results areas of the project. It is expected that the information gained will be crystallised and developed into documents, including technical briefs show casing project interventions in a step wise manner.

The outcome of this consultancy will be technical documentations for various PLAN Heath intervention and strategy areas disaggregated by IRs and or clients as the case may be.
