Description: The Award Ceiling for Year 1 is 0 (none). CDC anticipates an Approximate Total Fiscal Year Funding amount of $5,000,000 for Year 1, subject to the availability of funds. The Ministry of Health (MOH) in the Kingdom of Eswatini is committed to accomplishing the United Nations and PEPFAR 95-95-95 targets. While access to higher quality laboratory services in Eswatini has improved dramatically over the last few years through a reorganization of the laboratory system and efforts to introduce accreditation standards, the Eswatini Health Laboratory Service (EHLS) is still not meeting the challenges of the HIV and TB epidemics. Laboratory services are particularly challenged by absence of approved key policies and strategic plans, lack of laboratory management to provide strategic direction of the EHLS, lack of equipment and laboratory network optimization, and absorption of donor supported activities. This NOFO seeks to assist the MOH of Eswatini to address the identified challenges through the following objectives: Assist the EHLS to develop policies on the delivery of quality HIV/TB laboratory services Facilitate an active role for EHLS leadership in monitoring and evaluating (M&E) implementation of the Laboratory Strategic plan Provide technical assistance (TA) to support increased access and coverage for quality HIV/TB laboratory services Strengthen laboratory information system (LIS) and Client Management Information System (CMIS) interoperability Develop a transition plan for the MOH to absorb donor supported human resources (HR) and other recurring costs for selected HIV/TB activities
