The USAID is funding the Collaborating Support for Health System Strengthening (CSHSS) contract to support the Ministry of Public Health in Liberia and seeks to expand their coverage area into three new counties: Grand Bassa County, Margibi County, and Montserrado County. The activities are expected to replicate those that have been implemented thus far to “Improve the Health Status of Liberians”, as laid out in USAID/Liberia’s Health Strategy, and Country Development Cooperation Strategy. This shall be achieved through: 1) Strengthened leadership and governance capacity of the Ministry of Health and Social Welfare (MOHSW) 2) Strengthened Ministry of Public Works (MPW) capacity to manage water supply infrastructure improvements, 3) Institutionalized Quality Assurance (QA) and Quality Improvement (QI) initiatives to improve health care service delivery, 4) Strengthened Human Resources for Health (HRH) Management, 5) Improved Supply Chain Management, 6) Increased financial sustainability of services, and 7) Strengthened Health Management Information System (HMIS).
Under the direction of the Supply Chain Advisor, the Supply Chain Mentor will provide technical leadership to supply chain activities at county level. The supply chain mentor will give special attention to strengthening county forecasting, quantification; supply and distribution planning, strengthening storage, inventory and information management of all MNCH, FP Malaria, TB, HIV and AIDs and essential commodities. S/he will also help operationalize the logistic management information system.
