Funding Opportunity: U.S. Embassy Health TechCamp in Luanda, Angola

*PURPOSE: *The Public Affairs Section of the U.S. Embassy in Luanda, Angola
seeks proposals to provide logistical support to plan and host the “Health
TechCamp Angola” in September 2017 in Luanda, Angola. This TechCamp aims
to improve and expand sharing of public health information about
vector-borne diseases, including Zika and Yellow Fever, through
strengthening existing networks and connections of public health officials
and communicators across Angola. The program will facilitate the
co-creation of software solutions that enable interoperability (i.e.
automated health information exchange) between Health Information System
(HIS) platforms currently deployed in Angola for more effective integrated
disease surveillance and response. This three-day program will bring
together key Angolan Ministry of Health officers, key members of the
Ministry of Telecommunications and Information Technology, public health
experts, and tech entrepreneurs familiar with the existing systems. The
TechCamp will also kick start the process of developing a national HIS
strategy and enterprise architecture as roadmaps for scaling these
platforms.

All interested parties are encouraged to read the attached notice of
funding opportunity (NOFO) attached and submit a proposal to
PASInboxLuanda@state.gov. The deadline is July 21, 2017 (23:59, WAT). The
full NOFO can also be found on our website
