WHO IS HIVSA?
HIVSA is a not-for-profit company established in 2002 and is a strategic partner of the Gauteng Provincial Departments of Health and Social Development. We innovatively transform and empower individuals, community workers and organisations by developing their capacity and resilience to effectively address socio-economic and health issues in the context of high HIV and AIDS burden with the ultimate vision of creating an HIV free generation.
THE PHVP PROGRAMME
The CSS programme implements the Preventing HIV/AIDS in Vulnerable Populations (PHVP). The goal of the PHVP programme in Gauteng is to contribute towards HIV epidemic control by enhancing the quality, comprehensiveness and sustainability of care and support services to improve resilience, health and wellbeing of Orphans and Vulnerable Children, Adolescents and Youth (OVCA&Y) and Adolescent Girls and Young Women (AGYW), in line with the South African Government (SAG)’s strategic goals for health and social development.
HIVSA’s implementation model is embedded in capacitating and strengthening Department of Social Development (DSD) funded Community Based Organisations (CBOs) to utilise a robust case management system and structured evidence-based interventions to provide holistic services to communities, OVCA&Y and AGYW. HIVSA implements the PHVP programme in the City of Johannesburg (COJ), City of Tshwane (COT) and Sedibeng.
The PHVP programme has three modalities namely, OVC Comprehensive, DREAMS Family Strengthening and OVC Preventive.
MAIN PURPOSE OF THIS POSITION
With guidance from the Team Lead, the Social Worker is responsible for the implementation of all the three programme modalities at sub-partner level, namely OVC Comprehensive, OVC Preventive and DREAMS Family Strengthening interventions which include championing strategies that ensure that at least 35% of Children and Adolescents Living with HIV (C/ALHIV) and only the most vulnerable OVC&Y according to the sub-population criteria per programme modality are enrolled into the programme. This includes programming and organizational (institutional) capacity building of sub-partners through training and mentorship aligned to SIMS.
The Social Worker will be tasked with mainstreaming quality in all programme activities by continually assessing programme performance and addressing challenges. This position requires a comprehensive and detailed understanding of OVC&Y programming issues, as well as a high degree of initiative, independent judgment, and communication abilities. The Social Worker is to actively conduct verification and validation of all beneficiaries to ensure quality data is reported into CBIMS.
