Terms of References (ToR) for Consultant for Facility Readiness

Preamble

Bangladesh has developed a National Preparedness and Response Plan and technical guidelines on COVID-19 with the support from WHO and Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC). The goal of the national response plan is to prevent and control COVID-19 in Bangladesh to reduce impact on the health, wellbeing and economy of the country. The national response plan has identified several areas for priority actions including identifying of the emerging issues and gaps aiming to improve coordination and capacity of national and subnational health systems to rapidly respond to the changing COVID-19 epidemiology and implement appropriate response plans.


In collaboration with different development partners and international NGOs, DGHS has already conducted an assessment of facility preparedness and readiness for COVID-19 that identified some gaps in the facilities. To identify the gaps in specific facilities and make them prepared and ready for providing COVID services, USAID’s MaMoni COVID-19 Response Project of Save the Children plans to conduct assessment on some listed facilities and intends to engage consultant/s with specialty on public health
