Call for Proposals – Process Evaluation of the Global Fund GBV Programme: Thuthuzela Care Centres
NACOSA is a national civil society network of organisations working in the HIV, AIDS, TB and related social development fields. With more than 1500 members – mainly community-based organisations (CBOs) but also non-profit organisations and individuals – NACOSA works to collectively turn the tide on HIV/AIDS and TB and build healthy communities through capacity building, networking and promoting dialogue.
AFSA is a national organisation acting as an interface between donors and CBOs and NGOs working in the HIV and AIDS sector, placing donor funds with strategically selected organisations and providing them with ongoing mentoring, technical support & capacity building. Through its practice of partnering with, and capacitating, local organizations AFSA has succeeded in extending the reach of good quality programs and interventions into remote, rural and hard-to-reach communities.
NACOSA and AFSA are calling for proposals for an evaluation of the Global Fund GBV Programme in Thuthuzela Care Centres (TCCs). The programme is funded as part of the Global Fund ZAF-C grant, entitled Investing for Impact against Tuberculosis and HIV, which is being implemented in South Africa from 1 April 2016 to 31 March 2019. The programme places qualified social auxiliary workers (SAWs) or ‘first responders’ as well as social workers at 43 Thuthuzela Care Centres (TCCs) and designated centres nationally through a number of implementing organisations. The programme will reach 60 625 sexual violence victims by the end of the grant period.
The evaluation will explore the progress and quality of the TCC component of the GBV programme; establish the current and potential role of the programme around follow-up, HTS and adherence to PEP treatment; make recommendations in order to further strengthen the programme and the quality of services provided. The timeframe for the evaluation is September 2017 – March 2018.
