The International HIV AIDS Alliance is currently seeking a programme coordinator to employ in Mozambique, under the Mozambican organisation AMODEFA, to provide managerial support and technical oversight to two Alliance programmes currently being implemented in Mozambique. The EJAF (Elton John Aids Foundation) funded Deep Engagement programme focuses on improving access and uptake of tailored HIV and STI prevention, care and treatment information and services that address the needs of LGBT Mozambicans whilst also building the capacity of health facilities and CBOs to provide effective, stigma free services and advocate for government accountability in delivering quality health services and scaling up access to new evidence-based interventions for LGBT people in the long term. The programme will contribute to building sustainable community health systems that meet the HIV and health needs of LGBT Mozambicans. Strengthen communities and mobilise communities to improve uptake of comprehensive HIV prevention and treatment services and strengthens the capacity of health facilities to collect, own and use strategic information to address gaps in the continuum of care. The Partnership to Inspire, Transform and Connect the HIV response (PITCH) enables people most affected by HIV to gain full and equal access to HIV and sexual and reproductive health services. The partnership works to uphold the sexual and reproductive health and rights of lesbian, gay, bisexual, and transgender people, sex workers, people who use drugs and adolescent girls and young women. It does this by strengthening the capacity of community-based organisations to engage in effective advocacy, generate robust evidence and develop meaningful policy solutions.
PITCH focuses on the HIV response in Indonesia, Kenya, Mozambique, Myanmar, Nigeria, Uganda, Ukraine, Vietnam and Zimbabwe. Partners in these countries also share evidence from communities to influence regional and global policies that affect vulnerable populations. PITCH is a strategic partnership between Aidsfonds, the International HIV/AIDS Alliance and the Dutch Ministry of Foreign Affairs.
