The overall objective of the African Health Diagnostics Platform (AHDP) is to contribute to the improvement and availability of diagnostic and laboratory services for low-income populations of Sub-Saharan countries, through the creation of functioning partnerships, possibly in the form of public-private partnerships (PPPs).
The platform envisions providing financing instruments to support the business model of private sector-based laboratories
The aim of the project tendered out is to support AHDP with the identification, preparation and implementation of investment projects including subsequent monitoring of individual projects through studies and technical assistance at various stages of the project cycle.
Moreover, the transfer of know-how in project development, project management and financing techniques to the Promoters, to enhance talents and skills of local human resources within government institutions, also constitutes one of the expected results.
In addition the project will identify any potential gaps between women and men's access to diagnostics, the availability of diagnostics for diseases that are particularly prevalent among women (e.
g. HPV, cervical cancer, anemia, HIV / AIDS, other forms of cancer, etc.) and the feasibility and market opportunity for expanding the availability of such diagnostics.
Investments will first focus on Ghana, Rwanda, Ethiopia, Kenya and Senegal. Another four Sub-Saharan countries are to be selected.
Project activities are to be performed in the target countries. This concerns a multi-country project and duty station is to be determined.
A maximum of 20% working days can be spent outside the target countries (home office).
