Please find attached Request for Information (RFI) No. RFI-APPHC MALAWI-2020-001, Advancements in Post-Partum Hemorrhage Care: Data analysis to understand trends in emergency obstetric service delivery in the context of COVID-19.
The HEARD Project aims to partner with an institution in Malawi to collect, compile, analyze, interpret, and package recent data to understand trends in emergency obstetric service delivery in the context of COVID-19 in Malawi. To accomplish this, the following activities are planned: 1. Compile and analyse existing quantitative data related to key maternal health and service delivery indicators (e.g. DHIS2, program monitoring data, site level service delivery data); 2. Document COVID-19 contextual factors (e.g. case numbers, testing, guidance impact on service delivery, etc.) as they are affecting maternal health services; 3. Lead the interpretation and synthesis of the findings, including the incorporation of a contextual analysis (above) to strengthen understanding of trends and conclusions; and 4. Support packaging and presentation of findings to inform policy and practice.
Successful applicants will meet the eligibility criteria (Section 6.1 in the PDF) and have: a. A clear proposal for an approach to accomplish the expected activities (Section 5); b. Demonstrated technical expertise in data management, quantitative analysis, interpretation and presentation of findings; c. Demonstrated technical expertise related to maternal health and health systems research in Malawi; and, d. Strong institutional financial and management capacities.
The purpose of the RFI is to identify a partner institution in Malawi to collect, compile, analyze, interpret and package recent data for the purposes of understanding trends in emergency obstetric service delivery in the context of COVID-19 in Malawi. This work relates to the portfolio of work being undertaken by the Advancements in Post-Partum Hemorrhage Care (APPHC) partnership (see Section 8: Background). USAID’s Health Evaluation and Applied Research Development (HEARD) project, managed by University Research Co., LLC, expects to make one (1) award up to 25,000USD.
