Request for Proposals to Study Quality of Tuberculosis Care in the Philippines

MEASURE Evaluation seeks a local research organization to organize and manage field activities for a study on quality of care for tuberculosis programs in the Philippines.

The Study on Quality of Care for Tuberculosis (TB) program is being designed and implemented by MEASURE Evaluation, a USAID funded project and the Department of Health through the National Tuberculosis Control Program (NTP). The study protocol is developed by MEASURE Evaluation and the NTP in Philippines.

The purpose of this study is to measure the quality of care for a TB program at the selected facilities and to provide actionable results for the NTP and funding agencies to develop program or interventions to improve TB service delivery. 

MEASURE Evaluation and the NTP will work with the successful local research organization to finalize the sampling of the facilities, service providers, and patients to be selected for exit interview. 

The local research organization has overall responsibility for organizing and managing the field activities for the survey, in coordination with MEASURE Evaluation and the NTP.  The research organization will be directly responsible to the principal investigator and co-principal investigators or through its representatives from the NTP while the in-country MEASURE Evaluation survey manager may be directed to provide oversight functions of the local research organization. The local research firm will be required to participate or attend local or online meetings to provide updates to the study technical management team or on other topics as needed. 

Interested and qualified research organizations should present bids directly to MEASURE Evaluation. All bids must be received no later than December 8, 2017.
