Health Specialist - Voluntary Male Medical Circumcision Programme, NO3, Dar es Salaam, Tanzania

Apply

Job Number: 498872 | Vacancy Link
Location: United Republic of Tanzania
Work Type : Temporary Appointment

Background

Tanzania, through national AIDS Control Programme has worked on provision of high-quality client-centered voluntary male medical circumcision (VMMC) as a core component of comprehensive HIV prevention services in Tanzania. The roll out of VMMC started in 2010 based on the 2010 National VMMC strategy with a goal of scaling up VMMC in 12 priority regions. Between 2010 and September 2015, more than 1.7 million VMMCs were performed under the MOH VMMC program. The first five years was considered 'scale up' and 'catch up' focusing on 10-to 34-year-old males. The New National VMMC Country Operational Plan has been developed to guide continued scale up and sustainability 2014-2017.

Regions that reach or come close to reaching 80% of the target will slowly switch to the sustainability phase. Sustainability is characterized by the implementation of VMMC services at the majority of hospitals and health centers in the region and the expansion of service delivery to dispensaries that meet the minimum service delivery criteria. These facilities serve any remaining older clients and boys turning 10 years old.  Early Infant Medical Circumcision (EIMC) services which are integrated within reproductive and child health services are considered as a sustainability strategy for male circumcision.  As more infants are circumcised, fewer adolescent and adults will need circumcision in the future.

These plans also articulated in NMSFIII with the goal to increase prevalence of VMMC with the coverage of circumcision among adult men in all regions of Tanzania Mainland increased to at-least 80% by 2018.PEPFAR will continue to support VMMC services in the selected Sub-National Units (SNUs) from the priority regions, but the national programme should mobilize for funds to support VMMC in other regions that are not supported by PEPFAR. UNICEF is expecting to work closely with PEPFAR during implementation of the sustainability phase.

Justification

Voluntary medical male circumcision remains a critical component of Tanzania's HIV prevention package, and an essential requirement in the country's efforts to end AIDS by 2030. The contribution of VMMC to effective HIV prevention in Tanzania Mainland remains critical even as the country works towards achieving the 2020 HIV treatment targets of 90-90-90; which means 90% people living with HIV will know their HIV status, 90% of all people with diagnosed HIV infection will receive sustained antiretroviral therapy and 90% of all people receiving antiretroviral therapy will have viral suppression.  Even if the 90-90-90 targets were to be met, potentially 27% of HIV-infected individuals would have unsuppressed virus in circulation and continuing the cycle of HIV transmission, therefore HIV Prevention that includes VMMC remains a cornerstone in the response. To support this effort UNICEF is seeking to recruit a technical expert who will work and support the Tanzania National AIDS Control Program through the unit of Sexual transmitted diseases to implement sustainability plan for VMMC programs. UNICEF is recruiting this staff to provide technical support on this area which currently the office/section doesn't seem to have.

The goal is to ensure the Coverage of VMMC in all regions of Tanzania Mainland increased to at least 80% by 2018 as indicated in the Tanzania Mainlands NMSF III: The further roll out of VMMC service during the next two years will focus on the priority regions and districts with low VMMC coverage and high HIV prevention aiming to attain 80% coverage in all regions. Even regions that have attained the 80% coverage, efforts to maintain this coverage level, or even raising it to 90% will be supported.
