1. Background and rationale

CBM is a Christian international development organization, committed to improving the quality of life of people with disabilities in the poorest communities of the world irrespective of race, gender or religious belief.

Disability-Inclusive Development is the framework of all our initiatives and the key theme which drives our activities and the impact of our work. We believe that this is the most effective way to bring positive change to the lives of people with disabilities living in poverty and their communities. Through our Disability-Inclusive Development approach, we address the barriers that hinder access and participation and actively seek to ensure the full participation of people with disabilities as empowered self-advocates in all development and emergency response processes.

CBM is a long-standing and one of the main supporters of CoRSU (Comprehensive Rehabilitation services for People with Disabilities Uganda) hospital since its establishment in 2006 until today.

CoRSU is a specialised Rehabilitation Hospital registered as an NGO (S.5914/6411) and a company limited by guarantee (83070) which offers medical rehabilitation services to Persons with Disability, especially children. CoRSU was established in 2006, encouraged and supported by Christian Blind Mission (CBM) with the main aim of expanding and improving the comprehensive rehabilitation services for children with disability in Uganda and within the East African region.

About 40% of CoRSU hospital’s income is provided via funding of CBM (ref 2018 and 2019 annual budgets). CoRSU management has recently reviewed internal processes and has been able to increase its income due to improving processes. Furthermore, a costing study was done and new prices for services based on the costing study will gradually be introduced in 2019 and 2020.

CoRSU has submitted a concept note to CBM to establish a new rehabilitation center. The aim is to combine the existing therapy services (physiotherapy, occupational therapy, speech and language therapy) and the orthopaedic workshop in a new building with more space to improve workflows, treatment capacity, accessibility and the quality of services.

CBM is interested in funding the construction, equipment and training of staff of the new rehabilitation center. While financing the construction is a two to three-year investment, operating and properly maintaining it in the long run will add costs to the hospital’s operational budget. And CBM does not want to increase CoRSU’s dependency on donor funding.

Furthermore, more service providers exist (CURE hospital in Mbale; private services in Kampala) and are being established, e.g. the new Entebbe Centre of Excellence in Paediatric Surgery; set up of small physio centers within private hospital and private clinics with complimentary and with competing services which might have mixed effects on CoRSU’s patient flow and thus income.

To get a better understanding of the potential development of CoRSU hospital and to get an understanding of potential problems or risks CBM would like to get information on the market for rehabilitation services of CoRSU hospital.

Based on that information together with staff capacity and required staffing and infrastructure (space and equipment), CBM would like to commission a feasibility study for the proposed rehabilitation center.

As funding dependency and operational costs are an important issue for CoRSU and for CBM, CBM will additionally commission the development of a financial plan for CoRSU for the timeframe of 2020 – 2025 to understand income by sources and expenditures. As a follow up to a partner assessment done in 2017 CBM will also commission a review of the governance structure and processes of CoRSU hospital.

Based on the reports mentioned above (capacity assessment, market study, financial plan, governance review of CoRSU hospital, feasibility study for proposed CoRSU hospital rehabilitation center) the consultant shall as main deliverable develop a business plan for CoRSU hospital. This business plan will help CoRSU hospital’s management in its strategic planning and CBM in its funding decisions.
