Interested parties should provide a short submission, not to exceed 15 pages, addressing the questions below in addition to any comments related to Attachment A. III. QUESTIONS Do the results and sub results lead to the achievement of the Activity objectives? Is the Theory of Change (TOC) logical in demonstrating the right “if-then” relationship series or pathway to achieve the stated activity purpose and result areas? What kind of result-based financing approach could be employed to sustainably improve quality of care in urban and peri-urban primary health care units and referral facilities? What approaches could best support private health facilities to define and sustain quality of care (QOC) interventions for improved RMNCAH services and outcomes? What approaches could best support rebuilding the health infrastructure and/or restoring health service delivery in conflict-affected areas? What new approaches and interventions could be tested to improve the community-facility, inter-facility and intra-facility referral linkages in PHCUs and referral hospitals? What new approaches and interventions could be tested for improving quality of care across the life cycle (pre-pregnancy-delivery-childhood-adolescence)? What approaches or platforms could best support effective community engagement in QOC improvement efforts? Is the tiered approach logical in sequence to achieve the stated results? What evidence could be required to ensure the tailor-made approaches will be effective in accurately categorizing the health facilities into the different tiers? What approaches could best address the quality of care gaps in urban settings? In general, what other critical intervention or approach are missing in the draft concept note? IV.
