IDENTIFICATION OF AREAS OF EXISTING LAWS, REGULATION AND POLICIES THAT NEED REVIEW FOR REVIEW
The Commission on Human Rights and Administrative Justice (CHRAJ) is seeking the services of a consultant to identify areas of existing, regulations and policies on HIV, TB and human rights that need to be reviewed.
Background and Justification
The USAID, under the President’s Emergency Plan For Aids Relief (PEPFAR) Focal Country Collaboration (FCC) roll-out Project in partnership with SEND Ghana is implementing a Community-Led Monitoring (CLM) Activity for HIV services. The PEPFAR guidance for the Regional Operational Plan for FY23 (ROP22) emphasise two overarching principles for programming.
Firstly, it is a minimum activity requirement of which HIV-affected populations are provided continuous, quality, and person-centred services. Secondly, integral to all HIV response measures should be an independent, routine, local community-led monitoring efforts to improve the accessibility and quality of services. Results from the FCC activity will be utilised by the Government of Ghana (GOG) and PEPFAR implementing partners to better understand community perceptions of quality of services, human rights violations, stigma and discrimination, health services and commodities availability, and to inform decision-making about improvements in service delivery.
