Snap Plaza 8th floor, Bole Next to The Millennium hall. Addis Ababa, Ethiopia
Job Description:


Ethiopia has made impressive strides to strengthen healthcare systems over the past decade. However, results have been uneven, with both quality of services and equitable access remaining as challenges. There is a high disparity in service utilization and health outcomes among people in different geographical areas and socio-economic groups. Recurring drought, conflict, pandemics such as COVID-19 and disease outbreaks often hamper the country’s progress towards its goal to provide high quality health services to all its citizens. The health system is not resilient to accommodate the health burdens and sustain essential health and nutrition services during emergencies. It is also challenged by shortage and uneven distribution of health workforce with very low health workforce density, inadequate and unsustainable health financing, scarce material resources; and poor-quality data to drive informed decision-making.

The Country Coordinating Mechanism of Ethiopia (CCM/E) is a stand-alone mechanism that was established on February 27, 2002, to facilitate and coordinate the management of the Global Fund to fight AIDS, tuberculosis, and malaria grants to address the three diseases in Ethiopia. The Global Fund is a financing mechanism with the purpose of attracting, managing, and disbursing funds that will further enhance existing resources in Ethiopia and make a sustainable and significant contribution to the reduction of infections, illness, and death.

Further to the announcement of the Global Fund Funding Cycle (2024-2026) country allocations by the Global Fund, the CCM/E has prepared a funding request timeline to develop and submit Project Proposal and Write grant Funding Request for CCM Ethiopia Resilient and Sustainable Health Systems (RSSH) in the September 2023 window. In line with this, a core RSSH grant Funding Request taskforce is set up, and guidance has been made to coordinate and ensure a quality funding proposal is developed and submitted on time as part of the Global Fund 2024-2026 RSSH Funding request.

Therefore, USAID/Ethiopia seeks to issue a purchase order to contract for the services described below in connection with project proposal development and writing services for CCM Ethiopia Resilient and Sustainable Health Systems (RSSH). The selected vendor will be required to work closely with and guided by the CCM/E Resource Mobilization Committee and Executive Secretary of CCM/E.The Vendor will also liaise with the RSSH grant funding request taskforce and core writing team to develop a quality RSSH proposal and funding request document.
