LINKAGES is a five-year cooperative agreement funded by the U.S. Agency for International Development (USAID) under the President's Emergency Plan for AIDS Relief (PEPFAR) and implemented by FHI 360 in partnership with Pact, IntraHealth International and the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill (UNC). In Angola, MSH is LINKAGES’ operating partner. The project aims to accelerate the ability of governments, key population (KP) organizations and private sector providers to collaboratively plan, deliver, and optimize services that reduce HIV transmission among KPs – sex workers (SW), men who have sex with men (MSM), transgender (TG) persons and people who inject drugs (PWIDs) – and their sexual partners and extend life for those who are HIV-positive. The project goal will be achieved through the following results:

 

  • Result 1: Increased availability of comprehensive prevention, care and treatment services including reliable coverage across the continuum of care for key populations.
  • Result 2: Demand for comprehensive prevention, care and treatment services among key populations enhanced and sustained.
  • Result 3: Strengthened systems for planning, monitoring, evaluating and assuring the quality of programs for key populations.

 

The LINKAGES Angola program is a four-year program tasked with strengthening the Government of the Republic of Angola (GRA) and community responses to KP to help reduce HIV transmission among FSW, MSM, and TG, and to improve capacity and systems required to enroll and maintain KP in care.  LINKAGES will work with the Ministry of Health, National Institute for the Fight Against AIDS (INLS in Portuguese) to accelerate emerging GRA programming toward KP.  The objective is to strengthen the care cascade for KP and leveraging other PEPFAR programs in high impact sites of priority provinces.  LINKAGES will then reach KP through scaling up proven peer interventions, testing, and strengthened facility, community and GRA outreach, with specific focus on minimizing stigma and discrimination.

 

 

Overall Respobsibilities:

The GBV Technical Officer will work within the outreach and prevention team to operationalize the project’s packet of services aimed at preventing new as well as responding to existing cases of gender-based violence in the community. Gender-based violence in all of its forms: economic, psychological, physical and sexual increase the risk for individuals to engage in risky behaviors. The inability of health and other care professionals and peers to recognize and properly address these forms of violence when counselling patients create so called “structural” barriers for individuals seeking help and support.  KPs are disproportionally more affected by GBV however contextual factors may prevent them from even recognizing it as such. Given this, one of the main tasks of the GBV Technical Officer is creating awareness for these services among KPs. A second important task is equipping community prevention teams and health care professionals with the minimum competencies to not create additional trauma when counselling victims A third task, and perhaps the more complex, will be to develop a solid response mechanism that can quickly respond to occurrences of violence in “real time”, with the objective of de-escalating the threat or preventing it all together. For this last task, it will be critical to identify possible advocates (i.e., other peers, police, hot spot owners etc.), sensitize them and train them on the role to play to protect the victim.

MSH is seeking an Internally Displaced People (IDP) Specialist for a short-term humanitarian response project in DRC.

 

Conflict in the Kasaï region of central DRC, sparked by a violent local militia uprising that began in August 2016, has caused significant population displacement and substantial disruption to the health system’s ability to deliver essential health services. In Kasaï Central province, host to 77% of the region’s 1.3 million internally displaced persons (IDPs), health service readiness was well below the national average even before the present crisis erupted. Ongoing efforts by Management Sciences for Health (MSH) and Population Services International (PSI) to strengthen the provincial and health zone-level health system to reliably and equitably deliver essential services, under the current USAID-funded IHPplus and PMI Expansion projects, have been disrupted. In the proposed program, MSH and PSI will support the health system in Kasaï Central in coordinating with humanitarian actors to meet the urgent health needs of IDPs and others directly affected by conflict, while leveraging the ongoing capacity development and service delivery support that they continue to provide through currently programmed activities. We will strengthen outreach to IDPs where they have found refuge, building on established, proven approaches to identify cases, deliver community-based health services, rehabilitate health facilities as needed, develop and strengthen community-to-facility referral systems and networks, ensure that health data collection includes conflict-affected communities and IDP locations, and reach vulnerable populations with evidence-based, gender-sensitive, and context-appropriate social and behavior change communication messages. Working with the humanitarian logistics platform, we will address urgent needs for essential medicines and commodities both in IDP locations and at health facilities. Across all activities, program activities will strengthen the resilience of the DRC health system, build local skills and capabilities, and enable effective program transition.

 

The program will work in 187 health areas affected by the conflict in 25 health zones in Kasaï Central where the current USAID IHPplus and PMI Expansion projects are operating. MSH and PSI will prioritize support to the 187 health areas where the 928,166 IDPs were reported per MSH’s rapid situational analysis, in collaboration with the DPS management team. Within the 187 health areas, the program will prioritize support to 85 health facilities.

 

This consultancy will be from October 2017- February 2018. Local candidates are preferred.
