Senior Technical Officer Officer, Health Financing
Sustainability of HIV Services for Key Populations in South-East Asia (SKPA-2) Program
The Australian Federation of AIDS Organisations (AFAO) is seeking applications for the position of Senior Technical Officer, Health Financing for the Sustainability of HIV Services for Key Populations in Asia (SKPA-2) Program.
The Senior Technical Officer, Health Financing is responsible for implementing SKPA-2 objectives and strategies that aim to embed financial sustainability capacity of HIV programs in SKPA-2 countries.
SKPA-2 is a three-year, USD$12.5m program funded by the Global Fund to Fight AIDS, Tuberculosis and Malaria for the period 1 July 2022 to 30 June 2025. The program follows from and significantly extends the successful SKPA-1 program, which will be completed by June 30, 2022. AFAO is the Principal Recipient.
SKPA-2 aims to improve the sustainability of evidence-informed, prioritised HIV services for key populations in Bhutan, Mongolia, Philippines, and Sri Lanka. There are four program objectives:
- Accelerate financial sustainability
- Improve strategic information availability and use
- Promote programmatic sustainability
- Remove human rights and gender-related barriers to services
SKPA-2 is led by a Director who works for a consortium of partners to implement the program. The consortium includes both country and regional sub-recipients. The WHO and UNAIDS contribute as technical partners.
Comprehensive planning and implementation for SKPA-2 has begun with a baseline assessment and findings published in February 2023 to guide the detailed performance implementation plan. It is expected that following a brief orientation and familiarisation, the position holder will immediately participate in program implementation and support the SKPA-2 team to meet our performance framework milestones with particular attention to outcomes related to financial sustainability.
The location for this position is Bangkok, Thailand (preferred) or Australia
