    Description: The UNICEF Zimbabwe Country Office is seeking Expression of Interest (EOI) from qualified institutions to enter into a multi-year contract to conduct the Vital Medicines and Health Services Survey under the Health Development Fund (HDF).

    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.
    In order to monitor that the support provided by donors to rebuild the health system in Zimbabwe, after its near collapse in late 2008 and 2009, is having the intended results, data has been routinely collected quarterly across all public health facilities through the Vital Medicines Availability and Health Services (VMAHS) survey. This has enabled the compilation of data concerning program supply gaps and challenges. Evidence from VMAHS has been used by government and its partners to enhance the quality of health delivery in the country and to provide a predictable funding mechanism. The data collection for the survey has utilized the structure and logistical services of the Delivery Team Top Up (DTTU) project, a Crown Agents/ John Snow International (JSI) implemented initiative funded by UK Department for International Development (DFID) and the United States Agency for International Development (USAID) to provide PMTCT and reproductive health commodities to over 1,400 health centres and facilities across Zimbabwe. Enumerators collect data using mobile electronic devices through face-to face interviews with a permanent, usually the most senior member of staff at the health facility using structured questionnaires. The data is analysed and the report shared with MOHCC and its partners.
    The overall objective of the survey is to assess over time the availability of medicines and health services in over 1,400 health facilities across the country with the specific purpose of examining: Trends in availability of vital medicines and health commodities in health facilities supported through the Health Transition Fund (HTF),
    Availability of selected health services,
    Efficiency of current systems in delivering and re- supplying vital medicines and health commodities as planned,
    Staff availability and capacity strengthening issues
    The extent of charging user fees across the health system
    Existing facility infrastructure and
    To make recommendations to improve the health system, where appropriate
