The Obama Administration is continuing its push to expand citizen access to health care--and it now seeks to accomplish that task on behalf of the citizens of Uganda.
The U.S. Agency for International Development (USAID) acknowledged this morning that soon it will seek a contractor to run its new Ugandan health program. According to a presolicitation notice released today that U.S. Trade & Aid Monitor located via routine database research, USAID around Dec. 20 will release a Request for Proposals for the endeavor.
The stated intermediate goals of the initiative are:
1) Expanded availability of health services by private service providers;
2) Increased affordability of private health services and products; and:
3) Improved quality of private health sector facilities and services.
The agency released the document to alert industry that it seeks to:
identify a qualified contractor to implement this new program. The primary objective of the program is to support the professional development of Private Health Providers/Private for Profit (PHP/PFP) providers, selected private sector run company clinics, private health sector regulatory entities and commercial pharmaceuticals firms.
USAID did not disclose the program's estimated cost.
