Consultants - Need Assessment and Mapping - AGYW at the Achieving Health Nigeria Initiative (AHNi) - 4 Openings

Posted on Mon 13th Sep, 2021 - hotnigerianjobs.com --- (0 comments)


Achieving Health Nigeria Initiative (AHNi) is a non-profit organization that promotes socio-economic development by supporting global health and economic initiatives in Nigeria. AHNi currently has its headquarters in Abuja, Nigeria.

We are recruiting to fill the position below:

Job Title: Consultant to Conduct a Need Assessment and Mapping for HIV Prevention Program Targeting Adolescents and Young Women (AGYW)

Locations: Abuja (FCT), Abia, Anambra and Taraba
Commencement Date: September 2021
Duration: 30 days
Required Services: Consultancy to facilitate needs assessment and mapping for AGYW programing

Background

  • Generally, global progress has been made in the decline of HIV incidence in many settings over the years. New infections however remain unacceptably high among adolescent girls and young women (AGYW), particularly in sub-Saharan Africa. In almost all countries with generalized epidemics, young women aged 15–24 years are three to five times more likely than their male counterparts to be living with HIV; and in sub-Saharan Africa, 71% of new infections in adolescents are among girls. In a pattern that is consistent across most high prevalence countries, HIV incidence rates rise dramatically between the ages of 15 and 24, and more steeply among females than males.
  • Adolescents and Young People (AYP) aged 10-24 years account for one-third of Nigeria’s total population. The 2018 Nigeria AIDS Indicator and Impact Survey (NAIIS) estimates that approximately 180,000 AYP living with HIV in Nigeria with HIV prevalence especially high among females 20-24 years at 1.3%. AYP especially adolescent girls and young women (AGYW) have vulnerabilities for HIV in Nigeria that is strongly linked to gender inequalities and harmful practices. AGYW have low levels of comprehensive knowledge of HIV, HIV risk perception, and access to appropriate sexual and reproductive health (SRH) services. AGYW are also more likely to engage in risky sexual behaviours compared with older females. Other factors contributing to new infection in this group are intergeneration sex; harmful cultural practices such as early marriages as well as gender-based violence. Healthcare services are not friendly to adolescents and young people. Those living with HIV especially learners in school suffer from the stigma which affects adherence to treatment. As such, AGYW is at comparably higher risks of HIV and appropriate interventions need to be targeted at them.
  • Furthermore, it has been well established that addressing the underlying challenges facing Adolescents and young persons must harness and involve the participation of the adolescents and Young Persons (AYP) themselves.  Additionally, preventive measures that will positively impact new HIV infection among AGYW/AYP must address the underlying determinants of the vulnerability faced by AGYW which span beyond the health sector to other areas such as educational, socioeconomic, and other structural factors. Best practices have suggested that addressing these requires a greater understanding of the challenges and requires collaboration and partnerships with other relevant sectors. Therefore, multisectoral action is required for effective health promotion at the local, regional, national, and global levels.
  • This consultancy, therefore, is focused on identifying the specific needs and perspectives of the primary beneficiaries (AGYW), their male sexual partners and their immediate community. It will also involve the identification and mapping of available services that impact risk reduction for AGYW in the implementing localities. This will serve to better harness available resources and multisectoral stakeholders across the states for impact. Exercise will also add to the knowledge base on the AGYW profile in the state.
