REQUEST FOR EXPRESSION OF INTEREST
NATIONAL INTEGRATED SPECIMEN REFERRAL NETWORK (NISRN) TRANSPORTATION SERVICES IN NIGERIA
USAID awarded the Global Health Supply Chain Program – Procurement and Supply Management project (GHSC-PSM) to Chemonics Interational Inc, a parent company of SAII Associates Ltd/Gte, as the lead contractor. The project provides direct procurement and supply chain management support to the President’s Emergency Plan for AIDS Relief (PEPFAR) the President’s Malaria Initiative (PMI), Population and Reproductive Health, and Maternal and Child Health. The overarching goal of this global project is to ensure uninterrupted supplies of health commodities in support of United States Government (USG)-funded public health initiatives around the world, including Nigeria. GHSC-PSM endeavors to supply lifesaving pharmaceutical and medical supplies and simultaneously build the capacity of government organizations and agencies, as well as health care facilities. SAII Associates Ltd Gte is implementing GHSC-PSM in Nigeria.
The Federal Ministry of Health (FMOH) and the various state governments are responsible for providing high quality diagnostic and treatment services throughout the health systems in Nigeria. A key part of achieving this goal is ensuring the optimal operating capacity of various and strategically placed diagnostic equipment across health facilities in the country Poor testing referral systems for laboratory diagnosis of clients clinical samples have prevented full optimization of laboratory diagnostic equipment use, and the prompt management of infectious diseases.
The transportation of clinical samples in an integrated manner is a major challenge in Nigeria. An integrated sample transfer network is currently being implemented in Nigeria using third party logistics (3PLS) service providers to collect and deliver diagnostic clinical samples from health facilities to various testing laboratories across the country, and to collect results from testing laboratories and return to health facilities. The clinical samples include dried blood spot (DBS) for Early Infant Infection of HIV diagnosis, whole blood plasma for viral load and or CD4, whereas TB samples utilize Sputum, and malaria clinical samples utilize whole blood or slides for microscopy and detection as well as speciation of malaria parasites. The integrity of samples for diagnostic tests must be adequately maintained through proper sample collection, labelling, picking packaging, transportation, and storage in temperature controlled environments to ensure quality and acceptable results are generated and reported.
This system has been successfully implemented leading to short tum-around times for results delivery and subsequently resulting in timely initiation of treatment for clents. GHSC-PSM is scaling up the implementation of the sample referral system across all the health facilities and disease area testing centers across 36+1 states in Nigeria. The systems include collection, packaging, transportation and storage practices.
The use of this integrated sample transportation and results delivery model created opportunities to leverage the HIV and TB sample transportation networks thereby reducing cost and logistics burden. It also boosted equipment utilization and optimization in a coordinated manner. It is envisioned that the GHSC-PSM project will continue to carry out the integrated referral transportation system and will expand the network to cover other disease areas.
SAII Associates Ltd/Gte/GHSC-PSM seeks to partner with transporters who have experience providing transportation and distribution services and are interested in developing skills in the transportation of temperature and time sensitive specimen, with the capacity to achieve industry standard performance indicators for delivery accuracy, and the ability to scale its operational capacity to meet the growing needs of the national Integrated sample referral network throughout Nigeria.
