Immunization: The U.S. Agency for International Development (USAID) anticipates the award of a five year cooperative agreement for assisting USAID in immunization efforts. It is expected that this cooperative agreement will provide technical guidance, design assistance and specific problem solving skills in the area of immunization. In some special circumstances country implementation may be required but this will be fully supported by mission field support.The agreement will be expected to assist the Office of Health, Infectious Disease and Nutrition (HIDN), Regional Bureaus and USAID Missions in promoting improved immunization services in USAID assisted countries. That assistance will encompass the following areas and be consistent with the relevant strategic plans of the specific unit within USAID that has requested the assistance.Strengthening Routine Immunization Services HIDN will focus substantial attention on improving the operational aspects of routine immunization programs that will ensure that all children have access to vaccines that are safe, effective and delivered in a timely manner. The agreement will carry out its assistance alongside HIDN and its primary partners: WHO, UNICEF, the Children?s Vaccine Program (CVP), CDC, the World Bank, PVOs, as well as GAVI and the Regional Working Groups. Within USAID, the primary partners are missions and the regional bureaus. Immunization FinancingFinancing is a very high priority for immunization and will constitute an area of significant engagement for HIDN and USAID missions. The nature of this engagement is primarily in two areas. First is a potential partnership relationship with missions to provide technical assistance to countries that are seeking sustainable ways to finance their immunization programs. The second type of involvement is to provide limited support to groups such as the GAVI Financing Task Force (FTF) in ways that support the global effort to strengthen immunization financing. This may also mean conducting research on specific areas of concern that will contribute to the effort to build greater sustainability in immunization services. .Disease Specific Efforts to Reduce Childhood Morbidity and MortalityThe agreement may be called upon to assist HIDN and its partners in control efforts for three vaccine preventable diseases - measles, polio, and neonatal tetanus. Other AreasThe applicant may be called upon to assist HIDN and its partners in: technology development and introduction, vaccine research and development, vaccine introduction, injection safety, and vaccine security.The suggested NAICS Code for this procurement is 541990Requests for other copies of the RFA will be disregarded without notice to the requestor.
