Terms of References (TOR)-Business Plan Development of Training & Technical support unit of TLM Nepal
The Leprosy Mission Nepal (TLM Nepal) works with the Government of Nepal in providing specialist tertiary leprosy care and technical support for the national leprosy control programme through Anandaban Hospital, Mycobacterial Research Laboratory, Training Unit and community based inclusive development projects.
On request of Nepal government, the Training & Technical Support Unit (hereafter TU) was established in Anandaban hospital in 1987 as a separate, exclusive project to develop government leprosy services throughout Nepal. The TU initiated the development of leprosy curriculum for training to Basic Health Service (BHS) staff including DTLOs with the leadership of the then Leprosy Control Division (currently Leprosy Control and Disability Management Unit). This initiation, among others, played a vital role in the achievement of the national leprosy elimination phase in 2009. Since 1993, 28,044 staff have been trained in leprosy till date.
TU, since its inception, has been involved extensively in building up capacity of government health staff, to deliver effective leprosy service from their own health posts in the community. A purpose-built training centre at Anandaban Hospital premise facilitates this and TU staff also provide field based training to grassroots health workers, community people, in the basics of leprosy diagnosis and treatment. Additionally, TU also supports and supervises in active leprosy case finding campaigns in high burden areas.
Currently, the TU continues to upgrade the skills and knowledge of key personnel of related health sectors, monitoring visits, mass sensitization programmes throughout Nepal and also hosts international training and conferences in the premise. Through the years, the TU has expanded its expertise and resources beyond leprosy unto Disability, CBID, NTDs, DRR, WASH, Research, Peer Counseling and more.
Objectives of Assignment:
TLM Nepal, in the years to come, envisions the TU as a center of excellence for an integrated approach to capacity building at international, national and local levels by continuing and further strengthening support for the National leprosy programme whilst developing as a leading, integrated and inclusive training centre.
The rationale of this assignment is to develop a long term plan (each year from 2020 for five years) with projection on sustainable approaches and relevant support to Government of Nepal and community through effective usage of funds, seeking opportunities for greater collaboration and access to resources on the basis of review and assessment and study of environment of capacity building in Nepal’s health sector. The end product of this assignment is a Business Plan outlining recommendations for the effective functioning of the TU, affiliated agencies and stakeholders and sustainability of training programme in leprosy and other relevant areas. The plan will incorporate a road map and implementation plan for introducing and embedding the recommended structure and processes to develop TU as an international training and resource centre.
