48118-001: Greater Mekong Subregion Health Security Project | Asian Development Bank

Regional: Greater Mekong Subregion Health Security Project

Sovereign (Public) Project | 48118-001 Status: Closed

The project will complement existing projects, focusing on CDC, HIV/AIDS and malaria in one single intervention aimed at strengthening health security in Cambodia, Lao PDR, Myanmar, and Viet Nam by improving district and provincial health services capacity for diagnostic, response and treatment. The proposed project will (i) strengthen health services capacity to identify and treat communicable diseases, including neglected tropical diseases,10 HIV/AIDS, tuberculosis, and food borne diseases; and (ii) use the regional knowledge generated during the two previous phases of the project to control emerging and re-emerging diseases. The proposed project will target remote and underserved areas, with high poverty incidence, and MMPs. Geographic targeting will be determined by linking disease incidence with mobile and migrant population data by province. A project modality is proposed for Cambodia, Lao PDR and Myanmar.

Description The project will complement existing projects, focusing on CDC, HIV/AIDS and malaria in one single intervention aimed at strengthening health security in Cambodia, Lao PDR, Myanmar, and Viet Nam by improving district and provincial health services capacity for diagnostic, response and treatment. The proposed project will (i) strengthen health services capacity to identify and treat communicable diseases, including neglected tropical diseases,10 HIV/AIDS, tuberculosis, and food borne diseases; and (ii) use the regional knowledge generated during the two previous phases of the project to control emerging and re-emerging diseases. The proposed project will target remote and underserved areas, with high poverty incidence, and MMPs. Geographic targeting will be determined by linking disease incidence with mobile and migrant population data by province. A project modality is proposed for Cambodia, Lao PDR and Myanmar. In Viet Nam, the PPTA will explore the suitability of using results-based lending (RBL) modality to (i) support the national preventive medicine program, (ii) foster government ownership, and (iii) build on earlier development assistance. Should RBL be used, the Viet Nam project might be processed separately.
Project Rationale and Linkage to Country/Regional Strategy The proposed Greater Mekong Subregion (GMS) Health Security Project (the project) follows a series of subregional projects supporting control of communicable diseases, including HIV/AIDS and malaria, undertaken from 2006 to 2015. In close alignment with priorities of the Governments of Cambodia, Lao People's Democratic Republic (PDR), the Union of Myanmar and Viet Nam, the project will contribute to the enhancement of GMS public health security, and will strengthen national and regional capacity for disease surveillance and response, risk assessment, case management and subregional collaboration.

Business Opportunities
Consulting Services Consultants will be engaged through an international consulting firm, indicatively including 21 person-months of international consultant inputs, and 52 person-months of national consultant inputs. ADB will select and engage consultants in accordance with ADB's Guidelines on the Use of Consultants (March 2013, as amended from time to time). The quality- and cost-based selection (QCBS), using simplified technical proposal procedures, will be followed. The quality and cost ratio for QCBS will be 80:20. The consultants may procure equipment through shopping in accordance with ADB's Procurement Guidelines (March 2013, as amended from time to time). Some of the contingency funds will remain unallocated for individual national (24 person-months) and international consultants (3 person-months), possibly in the areas of project administration, and management, finance, sociology, laboratory, public health, and behavioral change communication, and resources persons during workshops to be identified as needed. Individual consultants will be recruited either by the consulting firm or by ADB following ADB's Individual Consultant Selection (ICS). Inputs by the consultant firm may be augmented by a small number of resource persons as needed, to be recruited by ADB in accordance with ADB procedures.
