Background : The overarching aim of the Global Fund Resilient & Sustainable Systems for Health RSSH project is to improve the health and well-being of the Nigerian people by identifying and addressing systemic issues affecting the optimal delivery of health services in Nigeria.

The resulting high-level interventions have been designed to follow the Global Fund’s framework for RSSH that is built on the essential building blocks of WHO for a well-functioning health system.

The RSSH grant aims to continue strengthening and expanding the capacity of systems to address health issues in a sustainable, equitable and effective manner, including for the three diseases.

By strengthening systems for health, it is also expected that they will be prepared for and able to cope with any potential future shocks.

While disease grants provide preventive, diagnostic, treatment, care and support services, as well as help strengthen disease-specific enablers to ensure effective implementation of disease programs, RSSH investments contribute to addressing system- wide constraints that not only affect the three diseases but other health programs as well.

To this end, the Global Fund’s RSSH investments help strengthen the level of integration of national HIV, TB and malaria programs into national systems for health.

The GF RSSH project in will be focusing on (1) Health Management Information Systems HMIS , (2) Procurement and Supply Chain Management PSM , (3) Integrated Service Delivery LAB .

The Sub-Recipients for these 3 key elements will be the Department of Health Planning, Research & Statistics DHPRS , the National Product Supply Chain Management Program NPSCMP , and NCDC respectively.

In an attempt to strengthen the capacity of the Sub recipient of the PR on the RSSH project which was based on the capacity assessment of the SRs, a consultant would be engaged to review and extend the existing Financial Management System / Accounting Software being used by DPHRS to accommodate Global Fund grant implementation procedures.
