The Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation is issuing a request for information (RFI) to identify innovators who have the ability to combine several critical accelerators to dramatically scale up comprehensive PHC access in low- and lower-middle income countries.

The Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation aligns with the WHO’s call for primary health care (PHC) toward Universal Health Coverage, which is the only “affordable dream” of expanding coverage to 3.8 billion additional people by 2030.

This request for information seeks to identify innovators who have the ability to combine several critical accelerators to dramatically scale up comprehensive PHC access in low- and lower-middle income countries (LMICs), as we seek to forge new partnerships toward UHC.

Please submit a pitch deck (e.g., PPT, PDF) that provides an overview of your business model, size of your organization, current geographic coverage, current population covered and projections for the population covered in future, PHC service scope, and any other information you choose to highlight. However, we ask that you completely address Section 1 (A-D), Section 2 (A-F), and Section 3 (A-C), noting “not applicable” or “attribute not included” to any part of Sections 1-3 if the innovation does not cover the attribute or requirement. Alternatively, please feel free to submit a write-up (e.g., Word document) that addresses the same sections completely.

Send responses as soon as possible, but no later than Oct. 1, 2018

I think we should take every occasion we have, to show OpenMRS to Bill and Melinda Foundation - one of the biggest funders for social good programs for LMIC there is, which rarely have the open request for proposals (or they are very specific) and usually seek partners to work with by itself.

Here is the document we can work on:

Everybody is invited to contribute, I’ll try to do some work on it Monday/Tuesday.

Maybe we should look at a consortium submission, and include ODK, OpenHIM, OpenELIS, and DHIS2 as a comprehensive suite of orgs?

This RFI is directed towards single companies, I’m not sure if consortium fits here. Also deadline is 1st October, so contacting all this organizations and doing everything on time would be very problematic.

Besides the informations we have to provide, that are mentioned in Google Document, we have to also provide them a pitch deck in form of presentation. I’ve started creating it (it is based on OpenMRS brochure, executive summary of the company, website and annual report). I think this could be later used for many different occasions:

I am gonna finish it tomorrow, but it would be great, if any one could share with me some OpenMRS pictures (from conferences etc.) so I could change them with stock pictures used now.

Of course any suggestions and comments are very welcome!
