Activity Description

An ad-hoc committee appointed by the National Academies of Sciences, Engineering, and Medicine (NASEM) has been tasked by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention to evaluate and document PEPFAR investments in the Rwandan Human Resources for Health (HRH) program. The purpose of the evaluation is to understand the impact of PEPFAR funding for HRH on  HIV-related mortality and morbidity outcomes for people living with HIV and on HIV incidence in Rwanda. This evaluation will document the results of PEPFAR investments in HRH and effects of those investments on HIV/AIDS, identify outstanding gaps, and provide recommendations to support a sustainable, integrated, and country-led HIV/AIDS program in Rwanda.

The National Academy of Sciences is issuing a Request for Proposal (RFP) to qualified organizations to assist in the design and implementation of NAS’s PEPFAR Rwanda HRH Program evaluation study, including supervision and execution of data requests, compilation, reading/translation, entry, mapping, quality assessment, management, and analysis of useable datasets from US agencies, multilateral agencies, PEPFAR country team, national program or agencies, and in-country programs supported by PEPFAR. The schedule for RFP submission is below.
