The Partnership for Transforming Health Services (PATHS2) project is a 6-year national program funded by the UK’s Department for International Development (DFID) to lead health systems strengthening efforts in Nigeria.

The PATHS2 project has developed a service delivery strategy which seeks to work with the State Ministry of Health (SMOH) and other partners to support amongst other interventions, limited infrastructural upgrades that include the provision of potable water to selected health facilities that will enable them meet the minimum quality standard for infrastructure. This will also ensure they are able to provide quality BEOC services in line with the focus of PATHS2 to develop BEOC facilities as Centres of Excellence.

PATHS2 is therefore seeking the services of a mechanical engineering firm to support the provision of water to selected cluster health facilities in Enugu State. This work will involve the drilling of new boreholes, repair of broken down water systems and construction of plumbing systems that will ensure that water is linked to the health facility.
