UNDP is a key partner to the Global Fund (GF) and when necessary serves as Principal Recipient (PR) in various countries. At the request of the Country Coordinating Mechanism (CCM) of Angola, it was proposed to the Global Fund that UNDP assume the role of PR to the new HIV grant. In its role as PR, UNDP is responsible for the successful implementation of the GF HIV project, including financial and programmatic management as well as the procurement of pharmaceuticals, and health products. The GF grant contributes to HIV/AIDS control in the Republic of Angola, through support to the National Institute for the Fight Against AIDS (INLS).
The objectives of the Program for NFM funding are to prevent new HIV infections amongst both general and key populations, increase PMTCT coverage, increase the number of children and adults in treatment, and increase number of patients adhering to ART in Angola. The overall goal of the grant is to prevent deaths caused by HIV and to reduce the burden of the disease.
The Strategies are as follows:
Prevention – increasing HIV educational campaigns targeting adolescent girls and young women out of school; training peer activists and other CHWs, distributing condoms, increasing availability and access to voluntary counseling and testing (VCT); reducing mother to child transmission; increasing HIV prevention activities targeting key populations;
These goals will be achieved through the improvement of prevention and treatment service delivery, extending surveillance activities and improving the monitoring and evaluation system. While the PMCTC intervention is the first national priority, the Global Fund also supports the other national priority related to HIV prevention interventions targeting young women and adolescent girls. The grant includes also HIV prevention interventions amongst key populations and the improvement of TB and HIV co-infection diagnosis and treatment services.
Finally, UNDP Angola as PR will work in close collaboration with the Ministry of Health (MoH), INLS and other implementing partners towards reducing risks related to implementation and enhancing public institutional capacity which will ultimately improve HIV service delivery.
The overall objective of this consultancy is to strengthen the HIV programme implementation and M&E in the regions, as well as knowledge and performance of stakeholders on provincial and municipal levels.
