Taking advantage of the improved prospects for peace and stability under the 2005 Comprehensive Peace Agreement (CPA), USAID has been moving over the past years from a relief mode of emergency service delivery in South Sudan to a development assistance model. During the formative years of South Sudan’s health system it has made sense for USAID to focus its technical assistance support to strengthening multiple programs at the national level. At the request of MoH and SSAC, USAID has agreed to embed an HIV/AIDS Monitoring and Evaluation Advisor into the ministry.
The Advisor will be placed within the MOH, working within the Community and Primary Health Care Directorate and supervised by the Director of HIV/AIDS Division. The Director General will designate key officers to be mentored by the Advisor and will ensure that the terms of reference of these officials provide time for them to be mentored by the Advisor to have their capacity enhanced. Specific mentoring and technical activities will be detailed in the workplan between the MOH and the Advisor. The Advisor will mentor and build technical capacity of designated counterparts at central and state levels to strengthen and update their technical knowledge.
The Advisor shall not assume the duties or "inherently governmental" responsibilities of a Sudan GOSS direct-hire position. The advisor shall not supervise MOH employees or officially represent the Government of Southern Sudan.
The Advisor position will be under the jurisdiction of the MoH and work in close collaboration and coordination with SSAC. The Advisor will report to the Director of the MoH HIV/AIDS Division and USAID’s PEPFAR representative.
The M&E Advisor will provide direct technical assistance in M&E to the MoH, coordinating closely with SSAC. The GoSS MoH has embarked on significant M&E system building efforts over the past two years. An M&E Framework was developed, national indicators were selected, data collection tools were developed, an M&E working group was organized, and the foundations of a health information system (HMIS) are being laid. HIV/AIDS related data are collected and reported as part of the national HMIS, and additional indicators are tracked separately by the HIV/AIDS Division within the MoH as well.
