AIDS Network (ZAN) is a national membership association of HIV and
AIDS service organizations and other institutions providing HIV
and AIDS services. The network has approximately 450 members. ZAN's
strategic objectives include provision of organizational development
and technical capacity support to member organizations; resource
mobilization and grant making, promotion of information sharing,
exchange and networking and Advocacy. ZAN seeks to engage a consultant
to develop through a participatory process a Capacity Development
Plan for ZAN members.
ZAN has in the
past conducted a capacity needs assessment in 2006 and has also
put in place other mechanisms to identify and address capacity needs.
The organisation has developed a Code of Conduct for AIDS Service
Organisations which all members are bound to abide by. The compliance
to the code is assessed through a peer review membership audit exercise.
Substantial data was collected during the last audit exercise whose
analysis will reflect clear capacity building needs and contribute
to development of a capacity building plan. Under the Global Fund
Round 8 support has been provided for the conduct of a participatory
needs capacity assessment of ZAN members and the findings from this
will need detailed analysis for development of a responsive capacity
development curriculum and conduct of a training. The Consultant
will be expected to synthesize existing literature on capacity needs
as well as to engage with the members in identifying priority capacity
Under the overall
supervision of the Deputy Director Programmes and in close cooperation
with the capacity building department the consultant will perform
the following duties and responsibilities:
and consolidate Capacity Needs findings from all the 10 chapters
and consolidate membership audit findings from all the 10 chapters
through a participatory process, a capacity building plan with
clear prioritization of capacity needs.
