Supporting the implementation of the framework for integrating vaccines against preventable diseases: Integration of the Covid 19 vaccination into routine health services

SAVax - "Vaccines for Africa - Rollout and Production in South Africa (SAVax)" is a partnership programme agreed to between the Governments of Germany and South Africa. It is a technical cooperation programme co-steered at national level in a partnership between the Department of Health (DoH) and the Deutsche Gesellschaft für Internationale Zusammenarbeit (GIZ) GmbH. GIZ is responsible for the implementation of the development contributions on behalf of the German Federal Ministry for Economic Cooperation and Development (BMZ).

The aim of the project is to provide improved access to high quality vaccines for all people living in South Africa. The project has two components: support to vaccine roll-out and local production of vaccines for Africa in South Africa. SAVax will provide technical support focused on strengthening policy, organisational and delivery capacity for vaccination rollout.

With the advent of the COVID-19 pandemic and lessons learnt in the management of the pandemic, it is apparent that the strengthening of health systems to deal with future pandemics is vital. As such the DoH has developed a framework to provide a guide to integrating the COVID-19 vaccination into routine health services, both at a strategic and operational level. The implementation of the framework will be undertaken incrementally and utilising a differentiated approach. The testing and piloting of the integration framework will take place within identified districts, sub-districts and facilities in the Provinces of Gauteng and Mpumalanga.

A service provider is required to support the institutionalisation of the integrated vaccination services at the national sphere of government while supporting the provinces of Gauteng and Mpumalanga to institutionalise the approach through testing and piloting the application of the framework at sub-district level and in selected facilities including capacity development support. The range of services to be provided in the testing and piloting will offer a comprehensive package of support and result in a national guideline, Standard Operating Procedures for each province and a range of tools, systems and processes that are designed, developed, improved or adapted to support this.

The Deutsche Gesellschaft für Internationale Zusammenarbeit (GIZ) GmbH invites eligible and professional companies with local presence in South Africa to participate in this tender.
