PSI anticipates being awarded a multi-year United States Agency for International Development (USAID) HIV and AIDS prevention, care and treatment project to provide the United States Government (USG) with cost-effective access to technical expertise and implementation support to meet evolving HIV and AIDS needs. Specifically, the project will provide technical assistance services to the Office of HIV and AIDS and the United States President's Plan for AIDS Relief (PEPFAR) country teams in knowledge management, technical leadership, program sustainability, strategic planning and program implementation support. The project will likely be expected to:
• Engage in long-term, in-country support for coordination and scale-up of HIV and AIDS activities in support of PEPFAR country strategies;
• Provide short-term technical consultations and program implementation support in specialized HIV and AIDS technical areas and institutional capacity building to USG country teams and USAID/W Bureaus;
• Increase technical capacity of host-country decision-makers and personnel to design and implement effective, evidence-based HIV and AIDS interventions;
• Strengthen the capacity of host-country implementing institutions to more effectively manage scale up and sustainability of HIV and AIDS interventions;
• Augment technical and programmatic capacity available to PEPFAR country teams and USAID Washington Bureaus;
• Conduct and/or oversee implementation of HIV and AIDS program-related data collection, analysis and reporting activities; and
• Document and disseminate successful innovative approaches and sustainable models, evidence-based best practices and lessons learned, and new approaches, tools and methodologies in HIV and AIDS programming and capacity building, through workshops, working papers and the Internet.
Illustrative HIV and AIDS technical areas and activities that USG country teams are likely to request support from this project include: prevention, care and support, treatment and related services, gender based violence prevention, data collection and analysis, capacity building/systems strengthening, knowledge management.
