The National AIDS Commission (NAC) is a body corporate established in 2001 and reconstituted through the HIV and AIDS (Prevention and Management) Act No. 9 of 2018 with new functional roles. The Act mandates NAC to coordinate and provide leadership for the implementation of the National response to HIV and AIDS.
The National AIDS Commission (NAC) has secured funding from the President’s Emergency Plan for AIDS Relief (PEPFAR) through Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) in support of a project titled “Strengthening Multi-sectoral Coordination and implementation and Monitoring of HIV/AIDS in Malawi’. The purpose of the project is to reduce high HIV prevalence and incidence in Malawi, recognizing age, gender, and geographic disparities. It will provide coordination and support of HIV prevention activities offered by international and local partners related to VMMC, GBV, PrEP, KP, and other holistic services that target HIV risk favors. The project will also increase the ability of PEPFAR supported HIV/TB prevention programming in Malawi to successfully meet objectives in a cost efficient manner.
The target populations for this project include AGYW, KP (e.g. MSM and FSW) health care workers, adolescent boys and young men, boys and girls ages 9-14, other priority groups (e.g. tea plantation workers, fishermen), and men. NAC therefore seeks to recruit suitable candidates to fill the position listed below to work on this project for an initial one year contract subject to renewal depending on the availability of resources:
