TERMS OF REFERENCE FOR A LOCAL CONSULTANT TO SUPPORT MINISTRY OF HEALTH IN THE REVITALIZATION OF MBALE MANPOWER DEVELOPMENT CENTRE
World Health Organization works as body of the United Nations (UN) system, responsible for directing and coordinating health. The goal of the organization is to build a better, healthier future for all people in the world and its staff work closely with governments and partners to ensure the highest attainable level of health for all people.
Health Manpower Development Centre (HMDC) Mbale was established in 1982 as a National In-service Training Centre with a mandate of developing in-service training programs for health workers’ continuous professional development.
From its inception (1984- 2005), the HMDC contributed significantly in continued professional development of health workers, with support from development partners such as AMREF, CIDA, AND DANIDA. However, the vibrant in-service training programs came to a standstill following the end of project support. As a result, several trainings have been done outside of the Institute.
Results from these trainings have proved inadequate and uncoordinated, resulting in minimal impact. The WHO would therefore like to support revitalization of the Institute to ensure a more coordinated In-Service Training for the Country. Because of the important role it played and can still play in the continuous professional development of health workers, the Ministry of Health intends to revitalize the Centre.
The development of a strategic plan was commissioned as part of the revitalization plan. WHO on behalf of the MOH is seeking services of a local consultant to undertake this assignment as per the Terms of Reference Below.
The local consultant will work in close collaboration with the MOH and WHO to ensure the exercise is successfully done within the stipulated timeline. The consultant will be answerable to the Commissioner of Human Resource Management at the Ministry of Health.
