Request for Information (RFI) USAID/India: Health Systems Strengthening and Building Resilience to Future Pandemics and Climate Change

Funding Agency:
US Agency for International Development

The United States Agency for International Development’s Mission to India (USAID/India) is in the process of gathering information to design a new activity to partner with the Government of India, the private sector and civil society to strengthen and expand inclusive and resilient health systems for universal health coverage. The activity would focus on ensuring India’s health system is prepared to prevent and respond to future challenges it faces such as climate change, emerging infectious disease outbreaks, and epidemiologic transition through comprehensive integrated primary healthcare, strengthening the continuum of care offered from the primary to secondary and tertiary facilities, expanded disease surveillance, maximizing the efficiency of public health financing, and increasing private sector engagement to improve health outcomes while reducing out of pocket expenditures.

The purpose of this Request for Information (RFI) is to solicit comments/suggestions in order to incorporate new, innovative solutions into a solicitation, Notice of Funding Opportunity (NOFO), or Request for Full Application (RFA), should USAID decide to issue one, to strengthen the health system for future challenges such as primary care and a strong foundation to manage health emergencies and infectious disease outbreaks, climate change considerations, and evolving burden of disease for the most vulnerable populations.
