ID: PSG-MBA-FY24-02 • Type: Posted

Description

A. PROGRAM DESCRIPTION

The U.S. Embassy Mbabane / PEPFAR Coordination Office (PCO) is pleased to announce an open Notification of Funding Opportunity (NOFO) to submit applications that support Community- led Monitoring (CLM) activities to be implemented in close collaboration with local civil society organizations (CSOs), PEPFAR, UNAIDS and the Government of the Kingdom of Eswatini.

The PEPFAR Community-led feedback program is funded through the U.S. President's Emergency Plan for AIDS Relief (PEPFAR). One of the goals of PEPFAR in Eswatini is to support efforts to achieve HIV epidemic control through implementation of evidence-based interventions to drive progress in HIV prevention, care and treatment and ultimately, save lives. Through the PEPFAR Coordination Office, the U.S. Embassy Eswatini administers the Community Grants Program and is seeking proposals from organizations representing registered local Community-based Organizations (CBOs) whose mission and activities focuses on HIV programming, in order to coordinate the CLF activities.

Client experience feedback is key to ensuring availability, access to, and delivery of quality HIV care and services. CLM will empower patients and communities to seek out this information, increase health literacy, expand engagement with health service delivery, support demand creation, and demand accountability from the health system to improve and deliver these services. Client experience feedback data will be collected for HIV services delivery at the facility level.

Results from CLM will be analyzed and presented in collaboration between community representatives, providers and facility managers at facility and regional level and in collaboration with stakeholders at the national level to ensure participating with identification of issues and subsequent implementation and monitoring of solutions. This will include developing the dissemination and quality improvement integration plan in collaboration with the MOH with the goal of improving service quality, continuity, and retention.
