Three Short Term Vacancies - Indonesia
--------------------------------------
 
Intensified Support Assistance Collaboration for HIV ? Indonesia
(ISAC ? HIV)
 
Proposed Terms of Reference
 
Short Term Professional ? HIV Care
 
The National AIDS Program Indonesia has made major efforts in 
acceleration of Indonesia HIV/AIDS Comprehensive Care expansion. 
A Five Year AIDS strategic plan for 2003-2007 is in place and 
has been widely distributed. The MoH will be expanding compre-
hensive HIV prevention and care to 17 provinces of Indonesia un-
der its commitment to the Sentani Declaration. Donor support 
from GFATM 1 and round 4, USAID ? FHI ? ASA, AusAID ? IHPCP have 
been secured to support this expansion. A Central management 
structure has been established to administer funds in an effi-
cient manner. Provincial Management structures are being formed, 
through appointment of Provincial Implementation Units (PIU), to 
work closely with the Provincial authorities and partners and 
manage the GFATM supported activities.
 
Within the 4th Round GFATM proposal, the Ministry of Health has 
determined three major goals. The first focuses on providing ap-
propriate care, support, and treatment for people living with 
HIV/AIDS (PLWHA), an area that has remained undeveloped because 
of extreme limitation on resources. With technical support from 
WHO?s 3 X 5 Initiative and this proposed assistance from the 
Global Fund, sufficient resources and expertise will become 
available to provide the necessary care, support, and treatment 
for HIV+ people throughout the 17 target provinces. The second 
goal focuses on prevention of HIV infection among the three tar-
get populations where the epidemic is most widespread; commer-
cial sex workers, injecting drug users, and transvestites. The 
third goal focuses on prevention of infection among vulnerable 
men through workplace programs in targeted industries. By pro-
moting safe sex, condom use, and health seeking behaviours among 
this important ?bridging? population, the spread of the disease 
into the general population should be avoided. All of these 
three goals are synergistic, and will help to significantly ex-
pand current interventions and augment the national response to 
HIV/AIDS.
 
For the following areas detailed work plans and achievement in-
dicators have been developed and will be addressed during the 
period of 2004 - 2009: Testing and Counselling, including VCT, 
Treatment and Prophylaxis for Opportunist Infections, ARV Treat-
ment and Monitoring, Palliative Care, Health System Strengthen-
ing, Procurement and Supply Management Capacity Building, Pro-
gram Management Support.
 
WHO Indonesia is now looking for three experts to support the 
teams in Jakarta and Papua in providing technical support.
 
Positions are available immediately.
