Addressing the HIV vulnerabilities of women and girls requires work at many levels – from developing national policies to providing or facilitating support to local community groups. It requires strategies for supporting behaviour change among men and social change to develop social, cultural, and legal environments that empower women. UN Women identifies key opportunities for networks of WLHIV to engage and participate in events and dialogues where policy is determined at global, regional, and national levels. UN Women supported representatives of networks of WLHIV and community-based organizations to highlight examples of women’s leadership in shaping HIV policies and programmes, creating constituencies, and advocating for greater accountability to advance women’s priorities and needs within the AIDS response.
People living with HIV (PLHIV) and civil society organizations have played a central role in the AIDS response in Tajikistan. CSOs has been – and continues to be – actively involved in every phase of the response, from advocacy to service delivery, from policy to programme design and implementation to monitoring and evaluation. It is widely acknowledged that without the efforts of civil society, the global AIDS response would be significantly weaker.
UN Women worked collaboratively with civil society organizations in HIV/AIDS response in many ways and different contexts. Civil society is a critical constituency for UN Women, playing a vital role in advancing shared strategic objectives to promote gender equality and women’s rights and empowerment at all levels. UN Women supports civil society organizations working in HIV/AIDS in diverse ways, through direct small grant mechanisms, programme implementation support, technical assistance, trainings, and support for participation in advocacy forums such as the Commission on the Status of Women (CSW), CEDAW and awareness-raising campaigns as well as web-based platforms for communications and experience sharing.
UN Women also have a rich experience working on HIV and AIDS at the community level with support of Tajikistan Network of Women Living with HIV as main partner and other NGOs and partners working in HIV/AIDS. To strengthen the programmatic interventions in this field, including advocating for and mainstreaming gender and HIV/AIDS for lobbying policies to protect the rights of women and girls living with HIV, building local capacities of communities in responding towards HIV/AIDS and strengthening leadership at the local-level, UN Women plans to support establishing a Tajikistan Coalition of NGOs (TCON) in HIV/AIDS to increase opportunities and support members to share knowledge, network, partner and jointly advocate for GEWE and ending VAWG especially WLWH, with relevant stakeholders at sub-national, national, regional and global levels.
Tajikistan coalition of NGOs (TCON) on HIV and AIDS will be a coalition of approximately 3 NGOs from regions of Tajikistan that will bring together HIV/AIDS service organizations to address the HIV/AIDS crisis. TCON will help communities to address the urgent needs of PLWHIV, especially women and girls, bring about more effective and efficient delivery of programs and eliminate any unnecessary duplication of effort, contribute to international HIV/AIDS work, and ensure that the lessons learned from the global response to HIV/AIDS are utilized to improve prevention, care, treatment, and support work in Tajikistan.
In this regard, UN Women is looking for an international consultant, to contribute to the formation of Tajikistan Coalition of NGOs on HIV/AIDS by facilitating the knowledge sharing and capacity building of NGO coalition members to strengthen strategic program planning and management, fundraising abilities, and advocacy.
Duties and Responsibilities
Under the guidance and technical support of UN Women Country Programme Manager and the direct daily supervision of the National Programme Coordinator, the Consultant will be responsible to design and deliver a capacity building programme on strategic planning (including the development coalition strategic plan for the period of 2021-2023), fundraising, advocacy, and networking for the members of the NGO coalition on HIV/AIDS.
