APLMA Dashboard visualisation tool and development of an Access Index
The Asia Pacific Leaders Malaria Alliance (APLMA) is seeking a suitably qualified organisation to assist with (1) the online interactive visualisation of its Leaders’ Dashboard, and (2) the development of an Access Index. Both will be designed to better help stakeholders track progress towards malaria elimination across the region.
The Asia Pacific Leaders Malaria Alliance (APLMA) is an alliance of Asian and Pacific heads of government formed to accelerate progress against malaria and to eliminate it in the region by 2030 or sooner. The Alliance was formed at the 2013 East Asia Summit (EAS) in Brunei in response to leaders’ concerns about the rising risk of malaria resurgence. The Leaders’ Malaria Elimination Roadmap, supported by the APLMA Secretariat, has been developed through extensive consultation with experts and officials from across the region. It identifies six essential priorities Leaders will need to support to realize the 2030 goal.
The APLMA Leaders’ Dashboard was developed to track progress and achievement in malaria control and elimination in 22 countries in the Asia Pacific. The Dashboard serves as an advocacy tool to demonstrate progress in the region and leverages governments’ and partners’ continued support for financing malaria elimination efforts. The Dashboard has two sections. The first section, the Leaders’ Dashboard, proposes higher level policy indicators to capture progress in each of the countries towards the 6 Roadmap Priorities for malaria elimination. The second section is a Technical Annex that offers a more detailed breakdown of technical parameters and epidemiology of malaria elimination in each country, based on data collected from countries by the World Health Organization on a yearly basis. Currently, the Dashboard is updated annually and presented as a PDF document online or in hardcopy.
The Access Index is a new proposal to build on and make better use of the indicators on the Dashboard that relate to access to commodities and services for malaria elimination. The Index will serve as an advocacy tool by mapping and ranking accessibility to healthcare and anti-malarial commodities including medicines, diagnostic tests and vector control tools. Potential indicators reflected in the Access Index could include but are not limited to the coverage of public private health services, the availability and accessibility of antimalarials and reported stock outs.
The purpose of developing these tools is to improve communication and advocacy efforts with all stakeholders on progress towards elimination by country and region. APLMA wants stakeholders to better understand the policy barriers to elimination including factors affecting accessibility to health care and anti-malarial commodities.
The project has two main objectives:
A. Dashboard Visualisation
These technical specifications are suggested requirements. APLMA will accept innovative ideas for the Dashboard visualisation. These will be assessed against its overall objectives, ease of maintenance and value for money.
B. Access Index
The Access Index is a new initiative of APLMA. The final specifications will be developed as part of this consultancy and in consultation with APLMA and its partners.
Suggested requirements are listed below:
APLMA will provide sample data from the Dashboard indicators for the development of a prototype. APLMA will also work with partners to identify sources of available data beyond the Dashboard.
A. Dashboard visualisation
B. Development of Access Index
APLMA will assess technical proposals against the following criteria:
APLMA will conduct a value for money assessment based on the technical proposal (weighting 80%) and price proposal (weighting 20%).
The Tender must be written in English and provided in the following format:
The Technical Proposal must address the evaluation criteria above and be no more than ten pages.
Two examples of past projects demonstrating relevant experience of no more than two pages each (to be included in an annex).
CV’s of no more than two pages for each of the team members (to be included in an annex).
The Price Proposal must be included in a separate document. The price must stipulate:
