Consultant or Company for Development of E-Learning Modules
Background: PMI Impact Malaria Program
The US President’s Malaria Initiative (PMI) Impact Malaria (IM) project is PMI’s flagship global malaria service delivery project, helping to improve the quality of malaria diagnosis and treatment services in up to 27 countries around the world. PMI Impact Malaria is a USAID contract hosted and led by PSI as the prime contractor. PMI Impact Malaria works with national malaria control programs to fight malaria and to save lives by strengthening diagnosis, treatment, and drug-based prevention for those most at risk, namely children and pregnant women.
The PMI Impact Malaria project (impactmalaria.org) is working to expand malaria service delivery education by developing e-learning modules for health workers at different levels of the health system in the countries it supports. The intended participants of the training vary from health providers in laboratories and clinics to community-based health workers. In-person trainings can often be difficult due to logistical complexities and limited resources; the COVID-19 pandemic has made implementing in-person trainings more difficult. Virtual and blended learning approaches provide an alternative means of training. The IM project seeks a consultant or firm to re-package seven (7) technical training modules developed by IM (PowerPoint presentations, manuals, job aids, videos, etc.) into a suitable format for delivery through digital training. This will include the repackaging of already-developed content into a simple e-learning module, complete with voice-over and graphics in both English and French.
Create a series of seven (7) e-learning training modules, each in both English and French, ranging from 15 minutes to one hour long, that are user-friendly, engaging, and memorable for users. Training content will be provided by PMI Impact Malaria on topics including malaria case management supportive supervision, electronic health facility supervision data collection, malaria rapid diagnostic tests, as well as community-level danger sign recognition and effective referral to a higher-level of care. The full list of topics and content can be found on the table below. Each e-learning module should contain the following elements:
1. Introduction to Outreach, Training and Supportive Supervision Plus (OTSS+)
2. How to prepare for an OTSS+ visit as an OTSS+ supervisor
3. How to provide supervision feedback as the OTSS+ supervisor and create action plans
4. HNQIS (Health Network Quality Improvement System):
