Basic Function of Position

The US government, in partnership with the South African Government (SAG), has supported the massive scale up of Antiretroviral Treatment (ART) related services in South Africa. The challenges and needs for maintaining and expanding quality ART, Prevention of Mother to Child Transmission (PMTCT). and HIV/TB services continue to be demanding. This program builds upon previous President's Emergency Plan for AIDS Relief (PEPFAR) support under the USAID HIV clinical services and antiretroviral treatment program to ensure continuing capacity building to the South African National Department of Health (NDOH) to improve and expand comprehensive HIV/AIDS and TB services to existing and future clients receiving HIV/AIDS care, support and treatment. This program will provide funding to South African organizations to assist the SAG to strengthen comprehensive HIV/TB care and treatment services and to support PEPFAR's transition from direct service delivery to capacity building across HIV/TB prevention, care, quality laboratory services and ART programs in selected districts.
