Community-led monitoring in global health is “models or mechanisms by which service users and/or local communities gather, analyze and use information on an ongoing basis to improve access to, quality and impact of services, and to hold service providers and decision makers to account.” In the context of COVID-19, community-led monitoring plays a critical role in flagging disruptions to health services and medicines, documenting human rights violations and providing real time data to policymakers.
ITPC is a technical partner to the Global Fund to Fight AIDS, TB and Malaria’s efforts to improve uptake of CLM and the use of CLM data for service improvements. In the context of COVID-19, the role of CLM is critical for monitoring disruptions to HIV, TB and Malaria service delivery, lab systems, human rights violations, health and community systems and using the data for advocacy to ensure continued quality and accessible essential services.
Through the Global Fund’s COVID-19 Response Mechanism (C19RM) Centrally Managed Limited Investments, an investment case for CLM in the context of COVID-19 was approved to provide dedicated support in the design, adaptation and implementation of CLM for COVID-19 in relation to HIV, TB and malaria programs. This support will be prioritized in countries facing severe and high disruptions to HIV, TB and Malaria services. This dedicated support will be provided through a roster of community consortiums, including ITPC. The consortium works with community groups to identify their support needs and appoint expert independent consultants (or deploys staff) to work intensively with these groups to ensure they have the systems and capacity to implement robust CLM interventions, particularly in the context of COVID-19 in relation to HIV, TB, and malaria.
ITPC is seeking a consultant to serve as a Community Led Monitoring C19RM Focal Point for an initial period of six months from September 2021 to February 2022 with a possibility of extension. The approximate number of days for this consultancy is 15-20 days per month. The first phase of the CLM C19RM TA will be implemented from September thru January/February 2022; a second phase is expected to be implemented from February/March 2022 thru December 2023- depending on funding availability.
Under the direction of Nadia Rafif, ITPC community data and advocacy lead, and the day-to-day technical and support supervision of Nadia, the main responsibilities of the Community Led Monitoring (CLM) C19RM Focal Point is to actively manage and coordinate multiple TA assignments and serve as a key liaison for the Global Fund Secretariat and partners.
This is a hands-on, dynamic position that involves working closely with communities affected by HIV, TB and malaria, as well as with the Global Fund and its partnership. The position offers the unique opportunity to help channel resources to under-served communities directly adversely affected by multiple pandemics and diseases. It is perfect for an independent but collaborative person with a ‘can do’ attitude and experiences working at the grassroots and/or national level on health programs.
