USAID Medicines, Technologies, and Pharmaceutical Services (MTaPS) Program Recruitment of an IPC consultant for COVID-19 response Background In the advent of the COVID-19 pandemic, USAID through its Medicines, Technologies, and Pharmaceutical Services (MTaPS) program is providing technical assistance to the Ministry of Health (MOH) and other main health sectors in Jordan to support the COVID-19 response in the areas of Infection Prevention and Control (IPC) related to IPC program management at selected health care facilities. MTaPS has been tasked to support health facilities likely to receive COVID-19 infected patients to strengthen IPC capabilities and biosafety of professional staff. Key IPC elements for the COVID-19 response include, but are not limited to: IPC program management, triage for acute respiratory infection patients, early recognition of cases, source control (isolation), application of standard and additional (contact, droplet and airborne) precautions, facility access, just-in-time training strategy, surge capacity, fatality management, and/or waste management. Purpose The purpose of this scope of work is to hire an IPC consultant to provide additional technical support to the MTaPS team to deliver immediate in-country technical assistance to MOH and partners as Jordan brace up for a COVID-19 outbreak. This scope includes work that will be done at the health facility level, especially in hospitals that are likely to receive COVID-19 patients, to strengthen IPC practices. This work will require a senior clinical practitioner, with expertise in IPC within healthcare settings in outbreak contexts, expertise in capacity building of hospital/healthcare practitioners and expertise in emergency preparedness
