An organisation that will manage a team of consultants to conduct the mapping of laboratory capacity for communicable surveillance.
AIHSP is seeking an organisation that will manage a team of consultants to conduct the mapping of laboratory capacity for communicable surveillance in four provinces in Indonesia. The team of consultants will support the Ministry of Health to map and examine laboratory capacity at national and sub-national levels. This mapping will take stock of what the labs are currently doing (i.e. the range of tests/analyses undertaken and the throughput capacity, or volume, and speed), the level of proficiency at which they perform these tests/analyses and accreditations. Furthermore, the mapping will look at their equipment inventory, reagent supply and staffing, including any shortages and training needs.
The team of consultants will work with the Technical Program Manager (Human Health), Senior Epidemiologist, and AIHSP’s advisers on a day-to-day basis. In particular, the consultant will jointly be working with AIHSP’s Human Health TWG #2 on Improvement Lab Capacity. The AIHSP TWG#2 is led by the Badan Kebijakan Pembangunan Kesehatan/BKPK (formerly Puslitbangkes/NIHRD) and Directorate Health Services of the Ministry of Health who coordinate every activity on laboratory improvement aspects.
This study/assessment will take stock of what the labs are currently doing (i.e. the range of tests/analyses undertaken and the throughput capacity, or volume, and speed) in human health laboratories. This mapping will examine the level of proficiency at which they perform these tests/analyses and accreditations. In addition, the mapping will look at their equipment inventory, reagent supply and staffing, including any shortages and training needs.
The scope should include all national/referral, provincial and major referral hospital labs that have not been assessed recently by other agencies. The mapping should cover capacity at the district level and also gather information through the provincial and district health offices on what is happening at the Puskesmas level as needed (e.g. sample a few districts to verify the information provided). The mapping should provide a sense of what tests are being performed at the District and Puskesmas levels, and how many Puskesmas can do what tests.
The consultation process should consider lab activities across ministries and agencies including the Ministry of Health, Ministry of Environment and Forestry (KLHK), Ministry of Agriculture, Coordinating Ministry for Human Development and Cultural Affairs (Kemenko PMK), Ministry of Maritime Affairs and Fisheries, Bappenas, Ministry of Communications and Informatics, and the Agency for the Study and Application of Technology (BPPT). This does not entail a detailed capacity analysis of the laboratories within or reporting to these agencies, but rather the consultation should consider whether there is any interface or collaboration between laboratories across the various sectors, whether such collaboration is beneficial to improving health security (especially at sub-national levels) and whether any such collaboration has the potential for further development.
