MSF is looking for a Community Club Supervisor to lead the day-to-day implementation and management of the Community Club model with NGO, CBOs, and clinic teams. The role includes marketing, implementing and monitoring the implementation of Community Club model. This may also involve contribution to development and adjustment of model if necessary.
MSF with City of Cape Town (CoCT), Western Cape Province (PGWC) and the Treatment Action Campaign (TAC) piloted at Ubuntu clinic in Khayelitsha an ART adherence club model of care which allows adherent stable patients to join a club of 30 patients. These clubs are run every 2 months by lay healthcare staff, providing a brief education session, basic symptom screening and distribution of pre-packed ART to patients. The patients continue to have an annual blood check and clinical check up by the clinical staff supporting the clubs. The outcomes of the pilot have proved the model successful, resulting in PGWC and CoCT with MSF support rolling out the ARV adherence club model to other clinics in the Cape Metro, and has been adopted nationally for rollout. MSF is now piloting running such clubs within the community in patients’ homes and community venues. MSF intends supporting the implementation of community clubs by other NPOs as a mechanism to spread the model.
MSF has also developed and is testing the feasibility of a mobile monitoring and evaluation system to support community based clubs. If the feasibility study is successful, MSF will pilot broader implementation.
