Appointment of a Lead Writer for the Northern Cape Provincial Implementation Plan for HIV, TB and STIs (2017 to 2022)

Appointment of a Lead Writer for the Northern Cape Provincial Implementation Plan for HIV, TB and STIs (2017 to 2022)

 

Background:

The National Strategic Plan on HIV, STIs and TB (NSP) is the strategic guide for the national response to HIV, STIs and TB in South Africa. This plan is developed for 5-year cycles with the current NSP coming to an end at the 31 March 2017. The NSP under current development will cover the period 1 April 2017 to 31 March 2022.  The focus of this brief is on development of the Provincial Implementation Plan (PIP) for the Northern Cape (NC) in line with the NSP 2017-2022.

 

The NSP is aligned with the ideals of human dignity, non-racialism, non-sexism and the rule of law that underpin the Constitution of The Republic of South Africa and is also aligned with the broader development plans of government. These include the Medium Term Strategic Framework and Programme of Action, which commit to ensuring ‘A long and healthy life for all South Africans’ and the National Development Plan that calls for an AIDS free generation. The NSP is aligned with international and regional obligations, commitments and targets related to HIV, STIs and TB.

 

The NSP addresses the drivers of the HIV and TB epidemics and builds on the achievements of the previous NSPs to achieve its goals. Interventions that have worked well will be scaled up and the quality of service delivery will be improved, while at the same time proven new interventions will be implemented. Because it is intended to respond to the changes in the HIV and TB epidemics, the NSP is reviewed periodically for relevance and effectiveness and, when necessary, adjustments are made. The NSP is hence a strategic framework with a few more detailed strategies to change the key drivers of the epidemic.

 

The NC PIP will draw guidance from the NSP to inform provincial, district and community-level stakeholders on strategic directions to be taken into consideration when developing implementation plans. It will also be used by NC PCA as the framework to co-ordinate and monitor implementation by sectors, districts and municipalities in the province.

 

 

Role of the Lead writer

 

The role of the lead writer is to work closely with the technical writing team, to participate in provincial consultations and to participate in working groups to fully understand the direction and intention of consultations where evidence will be reviewed and priorities identified within what the evidence shows.

Deliverables:

The main deliverable is a timeously completed high quality Provincial Implementation Plan for HIV, TB and STIs (2017 to 2022) with all chapters according to the SANAC guidelines and further developed by the technical writing team after further consultation at provincial and district levels. The PIP has to be written in excellent English, with references as footnotes, all annexes labeled appropriately, must include an index, abbreviations list, executive summary and all relevant chapters (epi-analysis, thematic areas, Monitoring and Evaluation framework and plan, costing and finance section

 

This will include working with many stakeholders, attending and preparing for consultations, assisting with the development of presentations and communication pieces on progress, ongoing development and refinement of the PIP document.

 

Scope of work

APPOINTMENT OF A CONSULTANT TO TRAIN AND PROVIDE TECHNICAL ASSISTANCE TO THE IMPLEMENTING PARTNER ORGANISATIONS (IPOs) IN FOUR DISTRICTS (2 IN EASTERN CAPE AND 2 IN MPUMALANGA) TO IMPLEMENT THE STIGMA REDUCTION PROGRAMME

APPOINTMENT OF A CONSULTANT TO TRAIN AND PROVIDE TECHNICAL ASSISTANCE TO THE IMPLEMENTING PARTNER ORGANISATIONS (IPOs) IN FOUR DISTRICTS (2 IN EASTERN CAPE AND 2 IN MPUMALANGA) TO IMPLEMENT THE STIGMA REDUCTION PROGRAMME

Addressing stigma and discrimination is an exceedingly important aspect of mitigating the effects of HIV.  Stigma and discrimination is not only harmful for PLHIV and their families, but also leads to undesirable health behaviours that may aid the spread of HIV. Individuals who do not disclose their HIV status and do not seek treatment may be more likely to pass the infection to others. Furthermore, stigma and discrimination dissuade any potentially-exposed individuals from accessing testing. On the whole, these effects limit the success of any HIV intervention in both treatment and prevention.

Stigma and discrimination towards PLHIV manifests itself in two main ways. In the first instance, external stigma (enacted by others) includes acts of prejudice and discrimination towards those with the stigmatized identity. Secondly, internal stigma or self-stigma refers to the assimilation and internalization of the socially constructed views of AIDS held by HIV infected persons. Moreover, even with the advent of long-term treatment for HIV in terms of antiretroviral treatment (ART), many PLHIV still do not disclose their HIV positive status to family, friends and sex partners for fear of discrimination, victimization and rejection.
