Data Officer job at SHDEPHA+ Kahama at October, 2022

is an acronym for Service, Health, and Development for People living with HIV/AIDS. As a national non-governmental organization, SHDEPHA+ was founded on 21 November 1994 (registration number SO 8216). The initiative for SHDEPHA+ came from fifteen people living with HIV/AIDS who wanted to establish a network and mobilize resources to help people living with HIV/AIDS and combat the disease’s spread. Although SHDEPHA+ started with the intention of supporting people living with HIV/AIDS, we have since expanded beyond HIV/AIDS and related issues to other development interventions. Now, SHDEPHA+ covers both infected and affected individuals by HIV/AIDS with over 65 branches countrywide. Each branch of SHDEPHA+ operates independently, developing, managing and implementing its own projects; while still adhering to one constitution and registration.

SHDEPHA+ is implementing a five-year global project in partnership with FHI360. The project, called Meeting Targets and Maintaining Epidemic Control (EpiC), is funded by the U.S. President’s Emergency Plan for AIDS Relief (PEPFAR) and the U.S. Agency for International Development (USAID). Its purpose is to achieve and maintain HIV epidemic control. The project provides strategic technical assistance (TA) and direct service delivery (DSD) to break through barriers to 95-95-95 and promote self-reliant management of national HIV programs by improving HIV case-finding, prevention, and treatment programming. EpiC will be implementing an HIV service delivery project among key and priority populations, adolescent girls, and young women (AGYW) which aims to reduce HIV infections in pursuit of reaching 95-95-95 goals. To achieve this goal, the program will support targeted prevention and case finding strategies at community level among the targeted populations.
