The U.S. Army Medical Research Institute of Infectious Diseases (USAMRIID) is seeking to determine the degree of interest and capability by U.S. businesses in conducting clinician training on select biological agents in Uganda and Kenya.
USAMRIID wishes to leverage relationships with key players in academic, medical professional and government organizations in order to deliver a useful, self-sustaining training product focused on the desires and needs of the Ugandan and Kenyan health care professionals.
With assistance from an experienced contractor the objectives of Defense Threat Reduction Agency (DTRA) Cooperative Biological Engagement Program (CBEP) for self-sustainment by the host country as well as potentially forming a central regional training hub for surrounding nations (namely Kenya) can be achieved.
The requirement also encourages expansion of these training relationships into potential research collaborations when aligned with respective missions and resources.
The training program must offer a well-established infrastructure, networking, curriculum evaluation and course development resources. The program shall also maintain sustainability of the end product (a trained cadre of clinicians) by following-up after the training, maintaining a database of qualified trainers and offering reasonable compensation for their time and efforts.
Organizations are invited to submit statements on their capability to function as an integrating entity on the ground in Uganda and Kenya to assist USAMRIID with its mission to provide clinician training on selected biological agents of Ugandan & Kenyan concern.
