QED is preparing for a proposal with the Global Health Bureau. This project is a five-year project and provides the U.S. Agency for International Development (USAID) Bureau for Global Health, Regional Bureaus, and Missions with ready access to high-quality, external technical expertise to design, support, and evaluate programs contributing to the achievement of U.S. Government (USG) Global Health Initiative (GHI) targets. The project is comprised of five components: program and project evaluation, technical assistance, mission support, GH program and research management, and logistical support for meetings/conferences.
The project spans multiple health technical areas, including HIV/AIDS, Family Planning, Maternal, Neonatal and Child Health (MNCH), Infectious Diseases, and Orphans and Vulnerable Children (OVC), as well as cross-cutting health issues, such as Gender, Health Financing, Health Systems Strengthening (HSS), public-private partnerships, and science and technology.
This project provides USAID operating units working on health-related activities in headquarters and the field with the short- and medium-term technical services of consultants with expertise pertaining to the GHI principles and USAID objectives to support partners to become self-reliant.
