Job Expired

GBV Consultant

Location: Abuja (FCT) (NEPWHAN National HQ)
Employment Type: Contract
Context of Intervention: GBV Case Management
Supervision: Network of People Living with HIV in Nigeria (NEPWHAN)
Duration of consultancy: 5 Days

In the RSSH-C19RM grant, GBV case management is planned to run with a help line among other strategies while the GBV Case response teams are expected to have basic knowledge on GBV Case Management for proper management of GBV cases and survivors. This consultancy is to strengthen the capacity of National Staff of the ATM Networks, GBV/GHR Partners, and NACA Toll-Free Line Workers who will in turn train the GBV response teams at the state level.

The grant still recognizes that, during the restrictions of movement due to complete or partial lockdown as a result of COVID-19, there was limited access to routine HIV, TB and Malaria services; particularly in the most populous States and commercial centers that were the hardest hit by the two waves of the pandemic in Nigeria. During pandemics, continued access to services was affected and attention was mainly focused on the emergency cases. As a result, access to information and services as well as protection of the rights of the vulnerable communities were somehow compromised. Based on these, key and vulnerable populations and affected communities with HIV and TB reported cases of harassment, stigma and discrimination, violation of privacy and confidentiality rights in the process of seeking healthcare were recovered even when the lockdown was relaxed.

To respond to this, the ATM networks have been selected as technical support Organizations (TSOs) under the Global Fund COVID-19 Grant, with NACA as the principal recipient, to provide programmatic and technical oversight to communities in response to human right abuse and reduce stigma across ATM related programs.
