Background of the Organisation
FACT is a Christian-based national organisation working in and through partnerships to improve health and reduce poverty among people affected by HIV and related issues in Zimbabwe and beyond. With support from Global Fund through UNDP, FACT was awarded funds to implement a HIV and Resilient and Sustainable Systems for Health (RSSH) interventions in 20 of Global Fund Districts in Zimbabwe. Under this grant FACT will be implementing three interventions related to HIV and Resilient and Sustainable Systems for Health (RSSH) Community Systems Strengthening Module. Interventions are: Community Led/Based Monitoring (CLM), Institutional Capacity building, Planning and leadership and Community Empowerment, Social Mobilisation and Advocacy. The implementation of these interventions will be through CSOs/CBOs sub sub recipients to be selected for all the designate Global Fund supported districts.
Background to Community Systems Strengthening (CSS)
Zimbabwe’s CSO, CBOs and networks’ serving in the areas of HIV, TB and malaria exhibit leadership, governance, institutional capacity, community empowerment, social mobilisation, advocacy and monitoring skills and capacity gaps. Firstly, communities exhibit weak coordinated engagement and coordinated mechanisms to consolidate treatment, prevention and support gains made since the advent of the three diseases. Additionally, the structures have slowly evolved. Thirdly, changes in epidemiological trends and concerted focus on biomedical responses have left out critical pockets which can benefit from social and community driven interventions. Those left behind include Men having Sex with Men (MSM), Adolescent Girls and Young Women (AGYW), female sex workers (FSW), Artisanal miners, prisoners, truck drivers and people with disabilities, certain faith communities among other groups. Coupled with this has been significant loss of traction and relevance by CBOs, CSOs and networks to efficiently and effectively serve and reach out to the hardest to reach. Sadly, without comprehensive and sustained reach, national and global targets for HIV, TB and malaria will remain a pipe dream.
To address the challenges highlighted above, FACT received funding from Global Fund as a Sub-recipient to implement a Community Systems Strengthening (CSS) interventions in 20 districts in Zimbabwe. FACT is implementing three CSS interventions, which are:
