  1. BACKGROUND

The AIDS Foundation South Africa (AFSA) is one of eight Principal Recipients[1] (PRs) of the Global Fund Grant 2016-2019, and one of two PRs responsible for the management of the Community Systems Strengthening (CSS) Program. AFSA is seeking to appoint a suitably qualified and experienced civil society organisation as sub-recipient (SR) to implement the program within specified areas in Mopani District of Limpopo province.

1.1 AIDS Foundation South Africa (AFSA)

AFSA was established and registered in December 1988 making it one of the oldest indigenous HIV and AIDS organizations in South Africa. AFSA defines its purpose as being a development organisation that exists to mitigate the impacts of HIV and AIDS and poverty, through the implementation of health and community development projects in vulnerable communities. AFSA has strategically positioned itself to work in partnership with CBOs and NGOs because of their access and close proximity to vulnerable communities and target populations. It has always been AFSA’s belief and practice that community participation and ownership are key to ensuring the success and sustainability of local interventions and that target communities should be agents of their own development rather than objects of charity. AFSA has worked as a donor intermediary for the past 30 years, managing and disbursing funds to sub-recipients, developing and strengthening their capacity, monitoring and tracking their performance, and reporting and accounting to the back donors. AFSA’s head office is based in Durban, KwaZulu Natal.
