NGO Jobs in South Africa

FHI 360 is a non-profit organisation dedicated to improving lives in lasting ways by advancing integrated and locally driven solutions. FHI 360 serves more than 70 countries and all U.S. states and territories. We are seeking a qualified candidate for a role to be based in Pretoria, South Africa.

FHI 360 is seeking applications for various positions for the LINKAGES project in South Africa. The project aims to reduce HIV incidence and mitigate the impact of HIV among men who have sex with men in South Africa by utilizing a client-centered differentiated service delivery model that provides a comprehensive package of services and interventions for MSM, ranging from hotspot-based coverage within geographic locations to virtual online to offline approaches. LINKAGES South Africa aims to fill critical gaps, reduce bottlenecks, and eliminate barriers across the HIV prevention, care, treatment, and support cascade (identify, reach with prevention services and commodities, link to HIV and STI testing and counselling, wrap-around services referrals, peer outreach and navigation activities for improved linkages, retention and adherence to ART) to reach the 95:95:95 goals by 2030 among MSM in South Africa. LINKAGES is tasked to build the capacity of local community based MSM organizations to deliver HIV services tailored to the needs of MSM. While significant progress has been made to date, USAID/South Africa and LINKAGES aims to support approaches that are systematic, coordinated, data-driven, and community-led that will significantly stem new infections, mitigate the impact of HIV, and address structural barriers, including stigma and discrimination.
