Design Review and Construction Oversight Services for Three Intermediary Warehouses in Zambezia Province

PEPFAR Mozambique developed the Zambezia Action Plan to expand access to services and treatment coverage to accelerate epidemic control, including activities to address critical warehouse space limitations and increase access to health commodities. PEPFAR Mozambique’s Country Operational Plan (COP) 2017 includes the design and construction of three intermediary warehouses in Zambezia province to safely store the growing quantity of commodities needed for the province’s health and epidemic control activities. The construction oversight services are intended to support USAID/Mozambique’s health infrastructure team by providing specialized A&E services and technical expertise required to undertake oversight activities. The three intermediary warehouses in Zambezia are in Erego, Mocuba and Mopeia Districts. The Intermediary pharmaceutical warehouses are responsible for: 1. Receiving bulk or pre-packaged products sent from regional and central level warehouses, 2. Receiving essential medicines kits, 3. Storing bulk products (traditional method), 4. Executing the distribution plan for pre-packaged products to health units, 5. Analyzing orders and distributing bulk medicines (traditional method) requested by health units, 6. Organizing (scheduling) transport to health unit warehouses, 7. Collecting and analyzing consumption/distribution data and reporting to the MISAU Central Medical Store (CMAM) head office and the regional warehouse.
