The objective of the assignment is to undertake a participatory organizational capacity assessment of the Network of Networks of HIV Positive in Ethiopia (NEP+), using the HIV Network Capacity Analysis toolkit methodology (Annex 1).
The planned activities will follow the methodology from the HIV Network Capacity Analysis toolkit (Annex 1).
2. Planning the capacity assessment workshop (see Toolkit section 3.2, pages 6-7)
With strong NEP+ support, the consultant will plan a 3-day participatory organizational capacity assessment workshop with NEP+ staff and network members. All logistical requirements will be dealt with by NEP+ team.
NEP+ staff and stakeholders should be involved in an initial meeting to clarify why capacity is being analyzed, how the analysis will be done and how the results will be used.
The consultant will meet with the translator and NEP+ to plan the workshop. Translation issues will be discussed beforehand.
The detailed workshop schedule will be planned, following as much as possible and relevant the suggested timetable on page 7 of the Workshop Facilitation guide in annex 1.
3. Developing a profile for the network (see Toolkit chapter 4, pages 8-15)
Developing a profile of the network includes documenting its background, detailing its main activities, and highlighting some key achievements and challenges. It can provide vital information and future reference for the facilitator of the workshop as well as other future providers of technical support.
4. Facilitating the workshop (see Toolkit chapter 5, pages 16-44)
The consultant will be the lead facilitator during the workshop.
The following six key areas will be explored during the workshop as per the facilitation guide:
5. Conducting an external stakeholder review (see Toolkit chapter 6, pages 45-59)
The list of key external stakeholders that the consultant should meet will be established with NEP+ team, who will also support contacting the stakeholders and scheduling the meetings.
6. Reviewing network documents (see Toolkit chapter 7, pages 60-61)
The aim of this exercise is to validate and check workshop findings by reviewing the completeness and quality of relevant documents, as well as assessing how recently they have been reviewed or updated and how well they have been disseminated within the network.
7. Drafting the capacity assessment report (see Toolkit chapter 8, pages 62-68)
Restitution to the network leadership team and finalization of the report
Established in 2004 by people living with HIV, the Network of Networks of HIV positive in Ethiopia (NEP+) is an umbrella organization of 12 constituent networks: 11 regional networks of 500+ PLHIV associations and one national network of women living with HIV. Networks’ member associations encompass about 200,000 people living with HIV. In addition, member associations are reaching an estimated half a million beneficiaries (PLHIV families) with prevention and care services. NEP+ is currently operating all over the country, including at the grass root level on the HIV prevention, care and treatment continuum.
With the support of Expertise France, a Resource Mobilization (RM) Strategy was developed along with trainings in RM in order to support the organization to achieve funding sustainability. The RM strategy also identifies capacity gaps and areas for further strengthening that would support NEP+ successful contribution to HIV program. The other area that was supported is the development of an organizational database, using DHIS 2 platform, to improve project monitoring and evaluation process and data management. This database have been installed in NEP+ head office and in the 12-member network offices. Currently, data entered at regional level can be accessed at the head office level and help to generate automatic data reports.
Moreover, the evolving status of CSOs - thanks to a new NGOs law that increases opportunities for engagement and participation of CSOs - and in particular NEP+ in a context of important structural changes, demands a greater focus on NEP+ capacity and functions, collaboration across networks and associations as well as a revision of its strategic areas of focus so that the organization can be well positioned to continue and expand its mandate.
