The United Nations Development Programme (UNDP) is the UN’s global development network, advocating for change and connecting countries to knowledge, experience and resources to help people build a better life, as envisaged by 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development. We are on the ground in more than 170 countries and territories, working with governments and people on their own solutions to global and national development challenges. As they develop local capacity, they draw on the people of UNDP and our wide range of partners that can bring about results.
The Bureau for Policy and Programme Support (BPPS) has the responsibility for developing all relevant policy and guidance to support the results of UNDP’s Strategic Plan and help countries to achieve the Sustainable Development Goals. BPPS’s staff provides technical advice to Country Offices; advocates for UNDP corporate messages, represents UNDP at multi-stakeholder fora including public-private dialogues, government and civil society dialogues, South-South and Triangular cooperation initiatives, and engages in UN inter-agency coordination in specific thematic areas.
UNDP HIV, Health and Development Strategy 2016-2021
UNDP’s commitment to HIV and other major health challenges is based on the principles that health is both a driver and outcome of development, and that actions across a wide range of development sectors have a significant impact on health outcomes.
UNDP’s work in HIV and health contributes to the Sustainable Development Goals by addressing the social, economic and environmental determinants of health, health-related inequalities and governance for health. UNDP’s work in these areas is outlined in its HIV, Health and Development Strategy 2016-2021.
The strategy encompasses three inter-related action areas, each of which includes three priorities:
Action Area 1: Reducing inequalities and social exclusion that drive HIV and poor health.
Action Area 2: Promoting effective and inclusive governance for health.
Action Area 3: Building resilient and sustainable systems for health.
HIV, Health and Development Approach
UNDP is a founding co-sponsor of the Joint UN Programme on HIV/AIDS (UNAIDS), a partner of the Global Fund to Fight AIDS, Tuberculosis and Malaria, and a co-sponsor of several other international health partnerships. UNDP’s work on HIV, health and development leverages the organisation’s core strengths and mandates in human development, governance and capacity development to complement the efforts of specialist health-focused UN agencies.
UNDP’s Partnership with the Global Fund
The Global Fund achieves its goals through a broad range of partnerships, including with the United Nations family. UNDP partners with the Global Fund to support and strengthen national responses to HIV, Tuberculosis and malaria. The objective is to ensure access to quality health services for all, and enable all those living or affected by the diseases to live healthy, productive lives. The partnership leverages UNDP’s mandate to strengthened institutions to deliver universal access to basic services and rebuilding resilient health services in crisis and post-crisis settings.
UNDP has contributed to 3.1 million lives saved through the UNDP-GF Partnership. As of 2017, UNDP is managing 36 grants in 19 countries, as well as 3 regional grants. The current total value of the portfolio in signed grant agreements is $1.7 billion. Total portfolio expenditure in 2015 was US $423 million.
Beyond this programme implementation role, the past few years have seen a further deepening in UNDP’s engagement on human rights, key populations, gender, capacity development of systems for health, sustainable financing, and other key strategic issues.
UNDP and Capacity Development
While managing health grants and programs, UNDP simultaneously works to develop the capacity of governments and/or civil society organisations to take over the implementation management when circumstances permit. It works to develop national capacity with a focus on long-term sustainability, leveraging UNDP’s global experience and its expertise in capacity development.
Capacity Development is central to all of UNDP’s programmes, especially through setting up flexible implementation arrangements, giving national entities increasing levels of responsibility, and through the design of the implementation arrangements which ensure that national systems are used for key functions such as programming, Monitoring & Evaluation (M&E), forecasting and supply chain management. Utilisation of national systems helps to strengthen them and prepare for a sustainable transition of the implementation management role to national entities.
UNDP Global Fund Capacity Development Toolkit
The UNDP Global Fund Capacity Development Toolkit http://www.undp-globalfund-capacitydevelopment.org/ has been developed to support partners, national counterparts, UNDP, the Global Fund and UNDP strengthen health systems, enhance the legal and policy environments, sustainable transitions and document and share the results. The sections include;
The UNDP Website Development;
The CD Toolkit has been developed over the last six years on Umbraco CMS and is housed on a single server which limits the speed. The current CD Toolkit is only HTTP and needs to be Hyper Text Transfer Protocol Secure (HTTPS) browser secure which will need to be addressed. The current arrangement is also relatively expensive.
A new approach will now be taken in developing a new website for UNDP’s Strategy on Building Resilient and Sustainable Systems for Health (see outline of sections for the new website below). The web development for the new Building Resilient and Sustainable Systems for Health site will be replicated for the existing UNDP Capacity Development Toolkit website which will enable the old site to be migrated.
Outline of the UNDP’s Strategy on Building Resilient and Sustainable Systems for Health new Website;
Building Resilient and Sustainable Systems for Health
Three Strategic Elements for Health;
The three strategic elements for health in version one of the new website are;
Resilient and Sustainable Systems for Health;
Other strategic areas will be expanded incrementally and released in future versions of the website to maintain interest, respond to demand and broaden the scope;
*Short sections will be included in version one of the strategy and will also be reflected in the sections above. These Strategic Areas will be expanded incrementally and released in future versions to maintain interest, respond to demand and broaden the scope.
Development and Management of the new UNDP’s Strategy on Building Resilient and Sustainable Systems for Health website;
A new static website will need to be developed using modern static website generator. It will use Netlify servers and Content Distribution Network (CDN) or equivalent which instead of a single server will push to a global network of intelligent CDN nodes, which is important for the site which will be used by countries across the globe. The CDN will also need to handle asset fingerprinting, automatic caching headers, and smart redirect & rewrite rules. The new site will need to have Hyper Text Transfer Protocol Secure (HTTPS) to be browser secure, to prevent search engines and /or users identifying that the site is insecure.
A priority is to develop the new UNDP’s Strategy on Building Resilient and Sustainable Systems for Health site on the new CDN and then as soon as feasible gradually migrate the old CD Toolkit using intelligent rewrite and proxy rules to transition gradually from a traditional dynamic site to a modern build tool. This will use advanced CDN logic proxy for any request that's not in the build to the current CD Toolkit legacy site.
The new websites will include a Progressive Web App (PWA) feature which will enable App icons to be downloaded to android phones and tablets, which will provide an offline browsing capability. The new sites will also be responsive for all mobiles, tablets and laptops. During the Web development opportunities will be scanned for the further development of web or cloud based tools as well as well as mobile technologies.
Social media accounts; twitter @CD2transform and facebook https://www.facebook.com/cd2transform play a part in the existing CD Toolkit in reaching different audiences. Both websites will need to utilize social media platforms to further enhance the engagement and interaction of key audiences and users.
The existing domain name for the CD Toolkit http://www.undp-globalfund-capacitydevelopment.org/ will continue to be used as it constantly appears in the top 20 of google searches. It will be transferred to the new server. A new URL and domain name will need to be agree and registered for the UNDP’s Strategy on Developing Resilient and Sustainable Systems for Health site. The new URL will be named using criteria to maximize top ten appearances in google and other search engines.
To utilize new technologies, software and approaches to create faster, improved global access, mobile responsive, secure, easy to develop, low cost, easy to manage and user friendly static web sites for the existing UNDP Global Fund Capacity Development website and the new UNDP’s Strategy on Building Resilient and Sustainable Systems for Health website.
