In COP20, starting from 1 October 2020, the SPPHC project will also implement activities to ensure that Key Populations (KP) and Priority Populations (PP) in South Sudan are reached with essential and life-saving HIV prevention, testing, care and treatment services, as well as post-GBV clinical response.
Jhpiego will implement KP programming for clients in located in six counties. The project will provide increased access to quality HIV prevention, treatment, care, and support services to key populations and their clients. In COP20, interventions will target Key Populations (specifically Female Sex Workers (FSWs), including brothel based FSWs) and Priority Populations (specifically clients of FSWs, vulnerable Adolescent Girls and Young Women (AGYW)) in Juba, Nimule, Yambio, Wau, Bor, and Rumbek.
The Project Manager will provide technical and programmatic leadership to the SPPHC project’s KP component in South Sudan. The Project Manager will also work closely with SPPHC care and treatment staff in the Jhpiego office in Juba, as well as liaise with other PEPFAR-partner clinical staff. The primary responsibility of the Project Manager is to ensure successful technical implementation of the work plan, to ensure successful achievement of the project’s targets and goals, and to ensure that the agency of key populations is supported through program implementation. The Project Manager will provide technical guidance and oversight related specifically to female sex workers, and represent the project and Jhpiego’s approach in meetings with key stakeholders. The position will be based in Juba, South Sudan, with frequent travel to supported regions.
