E-DRUG: RFP: tools for implementation of the Global Fund Quality Assurance 
Policy for Diagnostics
-----------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Request for Proposal (RFP) - for developing tools for implementation of the 
Global Fund Quality Assurance Policy for Diagnostic Products

Dear E-drug readers,

The Global Fund to Fight AIDS, Tuberculosis and Malaria ("The Global Fund") is 
seeking proposals from qualified candidates to develop and update tools for 
implementation of the Global Fund Quality Assurance Policy for diagnostics

Diagnostic products play a key role in treatment programs, as they influence 
therapeutic decisions and thereby the treatment outcomes. To optimize value for 
money and treatment outcomes in grant-funded programs, the Global Fund 
introduced a Quality Assurance Policy for Diagnostic Products (the "QA 
Policy"), in March 2011. The QA Policy defines the clinical standards, the 
product quality requirements and the activities that is required to ensure 
quality use of diagnostics. After two years of implementation, the Global Fund 
reviewed the policy in light of experiences with implementation, advances in 
technologies, market developments, new products assessed and partners' 
harmonization efforts.

The key proposed policy updates are to implement strengthened quality 
requirements for HIV RDTs, malaria RDTs, CD4 and HIV virological technologies, 
and TB diagnostics and establish the Expert Review Panel for Diagnostics.

The proposed revised QA Policy requires the development and the maintenance of 
documents and on-line guidance in order to facilitate the implementation of the 
policy by the Principal Recipients and Procurement Agencies who are supplying 
diagnostics to Global Fund supported programs. Consequently, the Global Fund is 
looking for technical support for these activities.
