Objective:

Provision of quality technical support for the strategic planning, implementation, monitoring and evaluation of efforts in support of national AIDS programs and provision of capacity development services in the Western and Central Africa (WCA) Region.

Content:

The Technical Support Facilities (TSF) were established by UNAIDS in 2005 to improve access to timely, high quality short- and longer-term consultants to support scaling up of national HIV and AIDS responses. TSF assist in the professional development of national and regional consultants and provides technical expertise on priority thematic areas such as gender, work with key populations (men who have sex with men, drug users, sex workers) and for priority interventions such as voluntary male circumcision and EMTCT (Elimination of Mother to Child Transmission).

A Technical Assistance Fund (TAF) has been established to ensure that country and regional partners in the WCA region, who cannot afford to pay for short and longer-term technical support, receive the support they require through the TSF for WCA.

On request the TSF offers its services to national governments, CCMs, Principal Recipients, Sub Recipients, AIDS councils, civil society partners and UN partners. Technical support accessed through the TSFs is used for a range of purposes, including designing programs and solving problems in the areas of strategic and operational planning, seeking resources from the Global Fund and other donors, grant implementation, institutional development, resource mobilization and tracking, M&E and program management. The TSF works hand in hand with its clients on all aspects of an assignment in order to develop tailored solutions. They support clients to identify their needs and to develop precise Terms of Reference and then provide a short-list of experienced, quality-assured consultants from which country partners select the support they require.

Between 03/2014 and 03/2018 the TSF WCA was managed by the consortium Health Focus/ ICI Santé/ RAF. It covered 25 West and Central African countries and provided a minimum of 3000 men days of quality assured, short term consultant expertise per year.

Between 01/2017 and 03/2018, the consortium Health Focus/ ICI Santé/ RAF provided interim support to the Regional Support Team Eastern and Southern Africa (RST ESA) with contracting of assignments for the Eastern and Southern Africa Region.

  • Management, monitoring and quality assurance of TS services;
  • Recruiting nationally- and regionally-based expert consultants (to as great an extent as possible) as well as international experts for TS assignments;
  • Maintaining comprehensive database of relevant consultants and institutions;
  • Providing high quality financial and human resource management;
  • Contract management;
  • Development and delivery of capacity development interventions, particularly for national and regional expert consultants on management and implementation issues;
  • Strengthening the implementation of national programs, in particular those supported by the Global Fund;
  • Establishing and maintaining strong and effective partnerships at the country level across the region, with governments, UN, civil society and other relevant organizations and institutions;

The project aims at supporting two GIZ Programs in Guinea “Promotion of basic education in Guinea” and “Reproductive and family health in Guinea”. It includes the implementation of one component of each program in the three project regions Mamou, Labé and Faranah. A forth region is covered by the health program only (Kindia).

In the health program the consortium is responsible for the component “Improving the quality of reproductive health services, including HIV” aiming at increasing the use of the reproductive health services by the population in the project regions.

The project strategy is based on the assumption that a lack of services quality is one of the main reasons for the low acceptance and little use of health services in Guinea. The project therefore aims at supporting the improvement of quality of reproductive health services so they comply with the

national minimum standards. To assure this, the project collaborates with the Ministry of Health and its subordinate agencies as well as with selected health centers and hospitals of the project regions. Interventions domains include:

(1)  Improving obstetric care (training of midwives, nurses and doctors regarding obstetric standards (e.g. use of partograms), obstetric complications and relevant clinical topics
(2)  Introduction of quality management instruments of in the SRH
(3)  Capacity strengthening of health management teams on prefecture level
(4)  Support the ARV treatment of 3000 patients and provision of support to the National AIDS Program to take over their treatment successively

For the education program the consortium is responsible for the component “Improving working and learning conditions in the beneficiary schools”. The component aims at improving school management and an enhanced involvement of the community. School board employees at prefectural and community level, school counselors and directors will be trained in order to optimize school structure and school administration & management. The link between school and community should will be strengthened through the introduction of local parents - community organization who commit to safer journeys to school and safety at school for their children.

Context: An effective education policy and enhanced job opportunities are ways to prevent conflict and massive disordered migration. However, capacity at all levels of the education sector is not sufficient to achieve the development objectives of the Kosovar Government in terms of inclusive and high-quality education. The GIZ Capacity Development in Basic Education (CDBE) program therefore aims at strengthening the capacities of the Kosovar Education system.

Objective: The overall objective of the CDBE program is to create opportunities for all children and young people in Kosovo through strengthening the education system and support children’s (re-) integration into the Kosovar education system. Especially the educational participation of girls and boys, who are returning from migration, and in particular children from ethnic minorities, is to be improved. The Consultant is concentrating on the second strategic goal of the CDBE program that aims at strengthening psycho-social and social education capacities by a joint effort of schools and Learning Centres for improved integration of children from minorities. The support program is primarily carried out by partner NGOs and it is therefore key to also enhance cross sector collaboration on municipality level.

Content: The Consultant is providing expertise to teachers and Learning Centre staff on mental health issues and psycho-social approaches in multi-ethnic environments. Next to the technical input and capacity strengthening part of the project, the Consultant is supporting the staff through self-care measures. During the first phase of the project, a tool box of approaches for the psychosocial support of children in difficult situations as well as for self-care measures has been developed to be used by the local teachers and NGO staff. In a second field phase, the CDBE program concept will be further refined and the tool box completed.
