IMA World Health/Staff

IMA World Health is seeking partners to implement a 5-year health systems strengthening project in the Democratic Republic of Congo (DRC).

The DRC will be receiving major health development assistance from the Department for International Development (DfID) of the United Kingdom through a project called Accès aux Soins de Santé Primaires (ASSP). The ASSP project will provide health systems strengthening to health zones in order to give the population better access to primary health care. The project will include infrastructure rehabilitation, in-service training, equipment, and support for supervision, water/sanitation, solar energy equipment, essential medicines, Behavior Change Communications, community empowerment and operations research.

Through a competitive bidding process DfID has selected IMA World Health to serve as the Consortium Lead to design and implement the ASSP project to provide health development assistance to five groups of health zones (HZs) in the provinces of Equateur, Oriental, Maniema, Kasai Occidental and South Kivu.

This project provides an opportunity to apply to become an Implementing Partner for this project for one or more groups of health zones.
