Request for Quotation (RFQ) for Supply of Hospital Equipment at John Snow Incorporated (JSI) – Integrated Projects Project, Nigeria

John Snow Incorporated (JSI) invites interested and qualified vendors / suppliers to tender RFQ documents for the supply of the following works:

John Snow Incorporated (JSI) has partnered to strengthen the Nigerian health system since 1988. Today we are helping to strengthen market systems for family planning and HIV commodities in the public and private sectors. Taking a total market approach (TMA) to HIV prevention, condoms, lubricants, HIV self-testing, and PrEP, JSI is engaging the private sector and building its capacity to improve access to HIV prevention commodities. To stimulate demand, JSI is improving awareness and use of HIV-prevention commodities via social media through the Keep It Safe and Sweet (KISS) behavior change communication (BCC) campaign. JSI is also strengthening the capacity of the Nigerian Government to coordinate the many partners involved in TMA for HIV prevention programming. This initiative is a continuation of work first begun under the USAID-funded AIDS Free project that JSI implemented between 2014 and 2020.

Applications are invited for:
