Professional Counsellor x34 John Snow Inc

Supporting an AIDS-Free Era

Scope of Work – Professional Counsellors

Background

John Snow, Inc. (JSI) seeks to recruit temporal highly qualified and accomplished Health Care Facility Psycho-Social Counsellors in three provinces: Central, Copperbelt and North – Western to be placed in selected Health Facilities supported by SAFE. SAFE is a United States Agency for International Development (USAID)/PEPFAR – funded project in Zambia. It is a five-year project implemented by JSI in partnership with Abt Associates, mother2mothrs (M2M), and the Catholic Medical Mission Board (CMMB), which works to reduce HIV transmission, morbidity and mortality while improving nutrition outcomes and Family Planning (FP) integration in Central, Copperbelt, and North – Western provinces. USAID/PEPFAR – SAFE works with the GRZ, private sector and civil society institutions at the national, provincial, and district level to reduce the incidence of new infections, increase access to ART for HIV positive adults and children, improve Nutritional Assessment, Counselling and Services (NACS) and Family Planning services, and increase the capacity of local health institutions to better serve affected populations.

Since the late 1980s when Zambia was hit by the HIV epidemic, numerous factors have influenced the quality of HIV-testing services, the feasibility and acceptability of new HIV-testing approaches, and the access to HTS for various community groups. As a result of the scale up of the HIV/AIDS response in Zambia, a drastic reduction of the prevalence rate from 28% around 1980s to 12.3% in 2016 among the adults aged 15 – 49 years has been achieved. Despite the drastic reduction of the prevalence rate of HIV/AIDS, Zambia still has 30% plus people living with HIV in communities that are not aware of their sero-status. Therefore, adoption of high yield testing strategies such as Optimized Provider Initiated Testing and Counselling and Indexing and Partner Notification Services (PNS) is seen as an approach that will help reach out to people living with HIV to complement conventional HIV Testing.

Job Summary:

The Professional Counsellor (PC) will ensure that all SAFE supported health facilities and their surrounding catchment populations receive continuously improving and high quality HIV Testing and Counselling services. Once diagnosed, the PC will ensure that persons living with HIV (PLHIV) are actively linked to services that are critical for their own health, as well as services to prevent HIV transmission to uninfected sex partner(s) and children. The PC will also be responsible for the daily supervision and assignment of duties to all SAFE supported Community Based Volunteers (CBVs) whose duties include Counseling and Testing, Indexing and PNS, Linking PLHIV to care and Patient Tracking evidenced by clear records in all the registers related to their duties.  The PC will work with the CBVs under their charge to triangulate patient records to ensure that all clients are linked to and are receiving all services due to them. Further, the PCs shall ensure that all CBVs under their charge are adequately trained and mentored in high quality HIV Counselling and Testing Services focusing on high yield strategies. The incumbent will report directly to the SAFE team lead at the health facility and the facility in.
