USAID Nigeria TB LON Regions 1 and 2 Project

The TB LON Project is funded by USAID Nigeria and focuses on locally generated solutions to provide TB prevention, screening, diagnosis, treatment and notification, while addressing stigma and discrimination. The TB LON regions 1 and 2 project is implemented by KNCV TB foundation Nigeria and is expanding the provision and increased access to TB services within the public and none public health sectors in Nigeria. The project is targeted at increasing the number of tuberculosis (TB) cases that are detected, treated and notified to  437,895 within the five year grant implementation period 2020 to 2025 and is being implemented across 14 states in Nigeria; Bauchi, Kaduna, Katsina, Kano, Nasarawa, Plateau, Taraba, Anambra, Akwa Ibom, Benue, Cross River, Delta, Imo and Rivers State. The project’s four intermediate results are as follows;

  • Improved access to high-quality, person-centered TB, DR-TB, and TB/Human Immunodeficiency Virus (TB/HIV) services;
  • Strengthened TB service delivery platforms;
  • Reduced TB disease transmission and progression and
  • Accelerated TB innovations with improved impact on program implementation

CBT to TB Surge and Laboratory Staff Rationale:

There is an upsurge of new practice relevant information in both TB programs and other programs which can no longer be disseminated in the traditional manner. It has become very imperative that for continuity of programs the double dilemma of training health workers in small cohorts and providing new information and guidance to widely dispersed health workers at short notice on a background of knowledge dearth and staff attrition must be addressed. The TB program is further challenged by the need to expand access and close the seemingly increasing gap in TB case notification. There is an urgent necessity to build the capacity of health care workers in a wide range of programs to meet needs including case detection, linkage to treatment, provision of treatment and support to initiate and retain patients in care.

Purpose of the Assignment

The aim of this consultancy is to provide qualitative, cost efficient, easily accessible, COVID-19 risk free Competency Based Training (CBT) to TB Surge and laboratory staff.

Key Objectives:

  1. Develop a bespoke course curriculum and content to meet the training needs of about

  • Collection and transportation of specimens
  • Bacteriological investigations (Xpert including use of stool, TB LAMP and Truenat).
  • Result retrieval and documentation
  • Contact Investigation

The project is targeted at increasing the number of tuberculosis (TB) cases that are detected, treated and notified to  437,895 within the five year grant implementation period 2020 to 2025 and is being implemented across 14 states in Nigeria; Bauchi, Kaduna, Katsina, Kano, Nasarawa, Plateau, Taraba, Anambra, Akwa Ibom, Benue, Cross River, Delta, Imo and Rivers State. The project’s four intermediate results are as follows;
