Invited to tender for Lot 1 of the EU-funded project “Strengthening the National and State Institutes of Health and Family Welfare (Distance Health Education, Health Systems Research)” in India, we now seek a range of key and non-key personnel. The overall objective of the programme is to assist the Government of India in meeting the Millennium Development Goals (MOOs) and, in doing so, give support to the Ministry of Health and Family Welfare (MoHFW) in the implementation of the National Rural Health Mission (NHRM) with particular reference to improving results of the Reproductive and Child Health Project Phase II and to facilitate capacity building to tackle systemic determinants of women and children health. The overall objective of this component is institutional capacity strengthening for enhanced service delivery in the health sector, particularly reproductive and child health.
