JSI is the prime contractor for the five-year USAID-funded Presidential Malaria Initiative Uganda Malaria Reduction Activity (PMI MRA), which aims to strengthen the capacity of malaria prevention and ownership of health at the community and household levels while maintaining gains made at the health facility level in the five highest-burden regions of Uganda: Acholi, Busoga, Karamoja, Lango, and West Nile. The Activity works with the Government of Uganda, through the Ministry of Health, to improve technical, managerial, financial, and leadership capacity, as well as accountability at all levels of the health care delivery system to fill gaps in access and use of high-quality malaria services, with a focus on the community level. The Activity also supports targeted private for-profit (PFP) health facilities to improve malaria case management and reporting. Four targeted results support this purpose: Malaria prevention and treatment scaled up; New malaria infections reduced; Leadership practices strengthened; Policy-making processes and capacity strengthened.
In the second year of implementation, JSI will subgrant to organizations that meet defined eligibility criteria to implement activities in the following districts: West Nile (Moyo and Zombo districts), Lango region (Lira City and Lira district), Busoga (Iganga, Kamuli, Namutumba, Luuka, Kaliro, Bugweri). The purpose of the Request for Expressions of Interest (REOI) is to invite interested organizations that meet the eligibility criteria to submit expressions of interest in order to be pre-qualified to respond to a full Request for Application (RFA) for grants under contract.
