    Description: The UNICEF Zimbabwe Country Office is seeking Expression of Interest (EOI) from qualified institutions to enter into a multi-year contract to administer the Health Development Fund (HDF) support to Results Based Financing (RBF) and Human Resources for Health Retention Scheme.

    Background: The Health Development Fund (HDF) is a multi-donor pooled fund, managed by UNICEF and UNFPA, to support the Ministry of Health and Child Care in the context of the 2016-2020 National Health Sector Strategy to achieve its goals of improving the quality of life of its citizens, through guaranteeing every Zimbabwean access to comprehensive and effective health services, with special emphasis on Women, Newborns, Children and Adolescents. The goal of the HDF is to contribute to reducing maternal mortality (by 50%) from 614 and under-5 mortality (by 50%) from 75, by ensuring equitable access to quality health services for women and children by 2020; and to contribute to the reduction of the unmet need for family planning to 6.5%, halving the prevalence of stunting in children under-5 from 28% and eliminating MTCT by 2020, combating HIV and AIDS, Malaria and other prevalent diseases.

    The HDF is a follow on to the Health Transition Fund which run from 2012 to 2015. From 2012 to March 2014 the HTF supported in 42 districts (approximately 900 facilities), the Health Services Fund (HSF) which was established in 1996 to expand and improve service delivery through decentralized funding to district hospitals and rural health clinics through an input based financing and from April 2014 to Dec 2015 through a Results Based Financing (RBF). The Health Transition Fund (HTF) strengthened this financing mechanism on a regular basis to cover selected running costs and maintenance expenses of health facilities. The Health Transition Fund also supported the retention of health workers at the various levels of the public health system

    A number of issues have come up during the implementation of the HTF in the management and implementation of RBF and human resources for health retention scheme which included:-
    (i) fragmented contract management resulting in high contract management costs
    (ii) challenges with health worker data bases completeness and submissions
    (iii) equity and fairness in the allocation of retention allowances
    (iv) unsustainability of providing retention allowances

    Policy discussions on these and other challenges are under way and will have an impact on how the HDF will support the implementation of RBF and HRH retention scheme with a possibility of making the HRH retention scheme performance based.
