Terms of Reference for National Consultant for completing the National Commitments and Policy Instrument (NCPI) tool for both the Government of South Africa and the Civil Society Sector

TERMS OF REFERENCE FOR A NATIONAL CONSULTANT for completing the National Commitments and Policy Instrument (NCPI) tool for both the Government of South Africa and the Civil Society Sector

I – Background:
The 2016 United Nations Political Declaration on HIV and AIDS: on the fast-track to accelerate the fight against HIV and to end the AIDS epidemic by 2030; adopted the United Nations General Assembly High-Level meeting on AIDS in June 2016; mandated UNAIDS to support countries in reporting on the commitments in the Political Declaration. This Political Declaration was built on three previous political declarations, namely: the 2001 Declaration of Commitment on HIV/AIDS; the 2006 Political Declaration on HIV/AIDS and the 2011 Political Declaration on HIV and AIDS. Member States unanimously adopted the 2001 Declaration at the United Nations General Assembly Special Session (UNGASS) on HIV/AIDS in 2001.

Principles applied to the GAM framework:
The following principles were applied for the transition from Global AIDS Response Progress Reporting (GARPR) to the GAM framework:
1. Reduced monitoring burden: The set of indicators is smaller (68 indicators versus 77 before) and has fewer separate questionnaires (sub-indicators and data sources); it integrates indicators for monitoring and reporting on the health sector response to HIV (previously called Universal Access Indicators) and is also aligned with the Sustainable Development Goal indicators , making the data collection less burdensome for countries.
2. Better programmatic utility for countries: Because of their disaggregation, sources and geographical granularity, including at city level, the indicators can summarise the diversity of the situation in a country and identify where programmes can have the greatest impact.

3. Knowing the epidemic and reallocating resources: The epidemiological estimates have improved significantly in the past years and are increasingly used at the subnational level together with programmatic data to assess service coverage. This enables efficient investment.

4. Coherent together: The set is also defined with the idea that indicators are not independent but complement each other, providing a more complete view of the AIDS response in a given country context.

5. Innovative and looking forward: For flexibility in the coming years, for selected indicators, the option to report using alternative data sources (different types of surveys and programmatic data) is presented. Community driven data collection in multiple forms, such as through social media and dating applications, could be complimentary to indicator data collected and offer further insights into the situation.
