Country Collaboration Initiative – Leadership Management & Governance/Ukraine


Scope of Work for Support to the Ukrainian Center for Socially Dangerous Disease Control (UCDC)

Provision of Strategic Legal Advice to UCDC

Total level of effort: up to 60days

Dates: July 01, 2015 – September 30, 2015


The global LMG project (implemented by Management Sciences for Health) is a five-year Cooperative Agreement, funded by USAID with the objective to support health systems strengthening by addressing the gap in leadership, management and governance capacity of policy makers, health care providers and program managers to implement quality health services at all levels of the health system. In mid-2013, the Leadership, Management and Governance (LMG) Project began to work with UCDC, to build on the progress of other projects in strengthening UCDC’s capacity as a Global Fund PR, and to build the institution’s overall capacity as a major player in the Ukrainian health sector.

UCDC is a specialized agency of the Ministry of Health of Ukraine, which performs the functions of intersectoral and interdisciplinary coordination of enterprises, institutions and organizations involved in activities aimed at (i) prevention and treatment of HIV, TB and other infectious diseases; (ii) providing organizational and technical assistance to health care institutions, specialized health care institutions and structural units of health care institutions; (iii) performing diagnostics and providing medical preventive care to people infected with HIV/AIDS, tuberculosis, and other infectious diseases; (iv) and supporting organizations providing specialized health care, diagnostic treatment, counselling for people infected with HIV/AIDS, tuberculosis, and other infectious diseases.

UCDC currently functions as one of the three Principal Recipients (PR) implementing a Single HIV and TB grant from the Global Fund to Fight AIDS, Tuberculosis and Malaria (GFATM) for 2015-2017.  The LMG technical assistance efforts in Ukraine are focused on continuing the work with UCDC to strengthen their capacity to be (i) a strong PR under the Global Fund; and (ii) to be a strong institution managing the national HIV and TB programs in Ukraine. 


The healthcare system in Ukraine is now undergoing the process of reform. UCDC is in the process of cutting up a considerable number of current GFATM-funded positions due to a reduction in donor funding. Furthermore UCDC is also undergoing the process of functional review that could result in the revision of UCDC’s functions, revised organizational structure of UCDC, revised staff job descriptions, as well as other changes.   

As part of their work to strengthen UCDC’s capacity as a leading organization within the Ukrainian health system, the LMG project in Ukraine requires a local expert consultant to work with UCDC on provision of strategic legal advice.
