Conduct Virtual Meeting at National level and online Workshops at Province Level

Dear Potential Bidders, 

Nutrition International (NI; formerly known as the Micronutrient Initiative) has supported the Vitamin A Supplementation (VAS) program in Indonesia since 2009 in 12 districts of six provinces with high of mortality rate of under-five children (North Sumatera, South Sumatera, West Java, Banten, Riau and West Nusa Tenggara). In 2013 up to 2015, NI continued its technical assistance to the provincial level to strengthen the capacity of PHO officials in providing technical assistance to DHOs on the VAS program implementation. Then, in 2016 to 2018, NI has scaled up the support to national level with focus to sustaining the high coverage of VAS for children U5. Further, under ISG 2019 funds, NI will continue its support for the VAS program at national level in Indonesia from 2019 up to 2024.


In Indonesia, the VAS for the children 6-59 months is distributed through Posyandu, Puskesmas and sweeping (home visit) at community level every February and August. The VAS distribution for second semester in 2020 has been planned for August 2020. Considering the COVID-19 pandemic, MoH has advised PHOs, DHOs and Puskesmas : (1) to continue to distribute VA to the targeted children at community level in collaboration with multi sectoral (MoHA responsible for COVID managemnent and distribution of PPE, MoH  and Ministry of Internal Affairs) departments; (2) to ensure the sufficient stock of VA for all targeted children and (3) follow the protocol of COVID-19 prevention and local government policy for regulation in distribution at community level (i.e. green, yellow or red zone and follow the protocol of safe administration of VA as per GAVA recommendations.

Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, GoI have advised to close Posyandu services from March 2020 until further advice depending on the COVID situation in respective areas. An interim guideline to continue deliver the nutrition services in COVID 19 including VAS at community level has been developed by MoH. This guideline has been distributed to PHOs and DHOs. However, due to the increase in COVID-19 cases in Indonesia, the interim National guidance on delivery of Nutrition Services (such as VAS, IFA supplementation , growth monitoring, etc.) in the context of COVID Pandemic needs to be socialized to the health workers and cadres/volunteers at community level.  Moreover, the areas with red zone of COVID-19 need to receive an intensive socialization on the protocol to be undertaken for VAS for August 2020 round.

NI is planning to support MoH and PHOs of Banten, West Java and WNT  to socialize the interim national guidance and protocol to carry out posyandu services and undertake VAS in green, yellow and red areas in COVID context through virtual meetings. Therefore, NI is seeking to hire an agency to conduct these virtual meeting and workshops.
