Basic Function of Position:

The Health Office (HO) among its many other functions, through PEPFAR funding, provides strategic and technical leadership on supply chain issues to ensure adequate quantity and quality of essential commodities for people affected by HIV/AIDS and related infections. Specifically, the Health Office is responsible for overseeing the following:
- Support the development and implementation of the National Department of Health supply chain strategy.
- Supporting a sustainable procurement operation and managing the supply chain for HIV/AIDS commodities. This includes procuring and distributing pharmaceuticals and other commodities needed to provide care and treatment of persons with HIV/AIDS and related infections.
- Providing technical support and leadership to USAID grantees, contractors and the South African Government in strengthening partner and host-country capacity to ensure a safe, secure, reliable, and sustainable supply chain system.
- Providing technical assistance to support national and provincial supply chain programs.

An evaluation of the Hospice Palliative Care Association (HPCA) project was conducted in South Africa between September 7th and October 26th to document the degree to which the USAID-funded palliative care interventions were successful, identify best practices, suggest improvements, and provide recommendations for follow-on interventions.

This evaluation of the Networks of Hope Program was conducted by Rural Outreach and Development Services (ROADS). ROADS was contracted by Pact on behalf of USAID to evaluate the World Vision’s Network of Hope (NOH) Program for addressing the needs of OVC in six Area Develop Projects (ADP) with the goal of improving their quality of life and resilience in the face of the HIV/AIDS epidemic in South Africa.


Gender-based violence and sexual assault in South Africa is a widespread dilemma that leaves many women, children and other vulnerable people traumatized and helpless. In response, Thuthuzela Care Centers (TCCs) work with survivors and providers alike to tackle this epidemic.


South Africa has a rapidly growing economy that is highly dependent on fossil fuels.  As the economic status of individuals improves, the demand on already strained energy production and associated greenhouse gas emissions is expected to increase dramatically. The USG aims to assist the Government of South Africa to move towards achievement of the ambitious emissions reduction targets it announced in November 2011 in the National Climate Change Response White Paper.
