The Clinton Health Access Initiative (CHAI) assists governments to promote high quality health care. CHAI teams work in partnership with the government, partners, and other major stakeholders to identify the key obstacles to access and scale-up of essential health services, and to develop sustainable strategies to overcome them. In South Africa, CHAI is supporting the National Department of Health and the South Africa National AIDS Council (SANAC) in its scaling up of HIV and TB services. The Government and its partners have been preparing the health system to handle the increase in patient volume by training nurses, helping public health facilities to begin offering treatment, procuring necessary commodities, securing funding and implementing a standardised ART Monitoring system. With the expected influx of clients, it is essential to have timely and accurate data from facilities to monitor the HIV/ART Programmes, to inform service delivery and to assess overall strategy at the national level. To strengthen capacity at the provincial level, CHAI is recruiting an M&E Coordinator who will support the Provincial Information Officer and the HAST teams to carry out this function.
The Provincial M&E Coordinator will focus on strengthening ART M&E as well as assisting other M&E needs of the HIV/ART programme as required. They will support both the provincial Information Management and HIV/ART programme to ensure continuous data is available, support the continued roll out of the 3 Tiered ART monitoring system whilst also working to strengthen data use to inform programme management ensuring routine feedback to both the programme and the districts. The Coordinator will work with the districts to establish district monitoring and evaluation forums to routinely monitor patient retention and management and measure patient outcomes against NSP targets. The Coordinator and the ART programme will work hand-in-hand to interpret data to inform decision making, programme and patient management.
An important aspect of the job is to provide a coordinating role between the district development partners and district and provincial government staff ensuring health system strengthening activities are aligned to the National priorities. Where training is required or where data analysis identifies data challenges the Coordinator will bring to the attention of the district partners and district information management staff and assist where required.
The Coordinator will act as a bridge between the data management and programme activities. They will identify challenges and resource needs and proactively communicate these to the province. They will also identify and recommend follow-up actions to the provincial and national M&E team, they will assist in the preparation of the M&E component of regular progress reports and updates as required by stakeholders.
Ideal candidate has excellent organizational skills and experience. He/she must be able to work at a rapid pace, be resourceful, flexible, and result-oriented.
