BACKGROUND

The National Strategic Plan (NSP) guides South Africa’s response to Human Immunodeficiency Virus (HIV), Tuberculosis (TB) and Sexually Transmitted Infections (STIs). The fourth NSP, for the period 2017 to 2022, seeks to address the multiple factors that contribute to the persistent high rates of HIV, TB and STI infection, illness and related deaths.
The NSP recognises that, in spite of global recognition of South Africa for its positioning and response to Human Rights (HR), there are still important gaps to close with respect to the full implementation of the human rights agenda, particularly those of people living with HIV and TB, including key and vulnerable populations.

In order to achieve the goals set out in the NSP, the Human Rights (HR) barriers that prevent people from accessing services must be removed, in particular for women, youth, sex workers, people who use drugs, inmates, Lesbian, Gay, Bi-sexual, Transgender and Intersex (LGBTI) and people with disabilities.

Goals 3 and 5 of the NSP outline seven key programmatic areas to reduce stigma and discrimination, including gender discrimination, and to strengthen access to justice for national responses to HIV, TB and STIs. Detailed descriptions of these programmes are in the plan, but for the purpose of this document, focus is on Monitoring, Reviewing Laws & Policies.

The development of a reporting portal will significantly improve the systematic reporting of human rights violation data to generate responses and eventually a reduction in similar violations.

The national reporting portal will provide evidence for the development of advocacy programmes as well as those designing and implementing programmes to reduce stigma and discrimination amongst key and vulnerable populations in the country.

PURPOSE

The overall purpose of this consultancy is to support SANAC to develop the Human Rights Implementing Partners’ Reporting Portal for collation and analysis of the the full implementation of the human rights program, particularly those of people living with HIV and TB, including key and vulnerable populations, that will coordinate a dataset that is valid, curated and harmonised for sharing through an openly accessible data repository so that third parties can access, mine, exploit, reproduce and disseminate.

More specifically, the objectives of this consultancy are:

  1. To define requirements for an integrated portal accessible to different stakeholders across the country and with varying levels of access, to enhance the ability of SANAC to monitor results periodically;
  2. To design and develop a common portal for reporting and assessing performance in terms of HR;
  3. To clearly define roles and responsibilities for the portal users at national, provincial and district levels; and
  4. To build the capacity of the relevant staff to manage the portal on a sustainable basis through specific training, training manual, help documents
    and tutorials.
