NATIONAL CONSULTANT (Third National AIDS Spending Assessment (NASA) in Myanmar)

Joint United Nations Programme on HIV/AIDS | Published January 5, 2016  -  Deadline January 12, 2016
cpvs

I. Background The National Strategic Plan for HIV/AIDS 2011-2015 in Myanmar, developed in 2010, has been revised in 2013 and extended until 2016. More commonly known as “NSP II”, it has three main goals: To reduce new infections of HIV; To provide care and support to people living with and affected by HIV; and To alleviate the socio-economic and human impact of AIDS on the individual, family, community, and society. To achieve these goals, the NSP II identifies three strategic priorities, namely: Strategic priority I: Prevention of the transmission of HIV through unsafe behaviour in sexual contacts and injecting drug use Strategic priority II: Comprehensive Continuum of Care for people living with HIV Strategic priority III: Mitigation of the impact of HIV on people living with HIV and their families The plan also involves three cross-cutting interventions: Health (including private sector health services), non-health and community systems strengthening Favourable environment for reducing stigma and discrimination Strategic Information, Monitoring and Evaluation, and Research The national multisectoral response to HIV and AIDS in Myanmar is implemented by the Government in collaboration with partners including national and international non-governmental organizations, bi- and multilateral agencies, private sector and civil society. Overall, there are approximately 40-45 organizations involved with the national response in Myanmar. The most important sources of funding for the national response to HIV and AIDS in Myanmar are the GFATM, 3MDG, bilateral and multilateral donors. Myanmar has yet to adopt a decentralized fiscal system for financing development initiatives at the regional, provincial or commune levels. Myanmar, like other Member States, have committed to submit to the United Nations’ Secretary General, through the UNAIDS Secretariat, a progress report on the achievement of the 10 High Level Meeting targets that countries aim to reach by 2015. The Global AIDS Response Progress (GARP) includes four main elements of information, namely: Indicator data to measure progress made with the national response; A narrative report describing progress, challenges and recommendations; The National Commitments and Policy Instrument (NCPI); and The National Funding Matrix summarizing AIDS spending by funding source. Myanmar’s first NASA exercise was back in 2005, and the second one in 2014 for the years 2012-2013. This exercise is aimed at the years 2014 and 2015. 2014 NASA exercise was very successful and provided much-needed detailed information regarding HIV expenditure as well as detailed data to properly complete the GARP funding matrix. Moreover, this year’s exercise assessing National Aids Expenditures 2014-2015 will be very valuable for the development of National Strategic Plan III and its Operational plan as well as the redaction of the new Global Fund Concept Note. II. Objectives The overall objective of the assessment is to capture health and non-health related financial flows and expenditures related to Myanmar’s national AIDS response. Specific objectives include the following: (a) to gather data to assess HIV and AIDS financing flows and expenditure in 2014 and 2015; (b) to make data that are needed to fill GARP funding matrix available; and (c) to develop national capacity to conduct NASA and strengthen the national resource tracking system to provide continuous key information on HIV/AIDS resource flow in Myanmar. III. Methodology A globally recommended methodological approach will be used using six variables (financing sources, financing agents, functions or AIDS Spending categories (ASC), production factors, providers of services and intended beneficiaries). This will allow building the foundations for a national expenditure tracking system that will ensure financial data is regularly collected and used to make decisions about investment of limited resources to address the epidemic. IV. Scope of Work Two consultants, one international and one national, will be hired for this assignment. They will work hand in hand to apply NASA methodologies that have been developed by UNAIDS to assess the financing flows and expenditures in Myanmar for the past two years (2014-2015). The financing flows need to be accounted by reconstructing the financial transactions among the six economic entities described for the financing, production and consumption functions (as described in the “National AIDS Spending Assessment (NASA): Classifications and Definitions”. To produce the results expected under these TOR, the consultants will conduct a survey involving all of the institutions involved in the response to HIV and AIDS at different levels. In particular, the national consultant will work to support the international consultant and be carrying out the following tasks: Participate in the training for the NASA Team members, actively participate in the discussion to plan the assessment in detail and update mapping of institutions involved with national response. Assist with organization and facilitation of NASA launch meeting to introduce NASA to respondents and to present the data collection tools and guidance notes. Assist with organization and facilitation sessions with finance and programme staff in respondents’ entities in order to facilitate data submission, where needed. Assist with collection of responses, checking of their completeness and quality control of data provided and following up with the respondents if needed. Conduct mapping of the submitted data with the NASA codes and enter the identified transactions into the data processing file. Prepare tables/graphs/charts for the NASA Validation meeting and the NASA report and GARP financial reporting matrices. Assist in maintaining and updating NASA database throughout the assessment. Assist with organization and facilitation of the NASA validation meeting. V. Expected Deliverables The expected outputs or products of this consultancy include: A draft one-page map of institutions involved in Myanmar’s national response to HIV (by 3 February 2016). According to the NASA Team division of labor, completed and quality checked data collection forms and related data processing files (by 20 February 2016) List of the assumptions used during the NASA and well-described estimation strategies. Submitted graphs, charts and tables for the NASA report – as directed by the Lead Consultant Deadline for the preliminary graphs by 22 February 2016 (for the validation meeting) Deadline for the final graphs by 24 February 2016. Additional data collected and sent to Lead consultant, if needed. TSF consultancy completion report by 30 March 2016. VI. Expected level of effort and timeframe: The national consultant will be engaged for 30 days in this initiative from 1 February to 30 April 2016. S/he will work very closely with the international consultant to provide support and learn about NASA methods and tools. VII.

National Consultant- Introduction of Professional Development Programme

9 Region and State Hluttaws - MYANMAR | Published May 23, 2017  -  Deadline June 1, 2017

BACKGROUND Under the current Constitution of Myanmar 2008 there are two levels of elected parliaments (Hluttaws) – at the Union (national) level and at the level of Regions and States. The 14 Region and State Hluttaws vary greatly in size and composition from 20 members in Kayah State to 138 members in Shan State. In total, the 14 Region and State Hluttaws have 659 elected Members, along with 221 military appointees. Since 2013 UNDP supported Region and State Hluttaws as a group, familiarizing MPs and staff with basic concepts, the separation of power, the role and functions of parliament and the budget process. The second term of the Region and State Hluttaws started in early 2016. The turnover of elected MPs from the first Hluttaw was over 90 per cent. The many new MPs require insight into how an effective parliament functions and how they can approach their duties effectively. For this purpose UNDP conducts a professional development programme for all Region and State Hluttaw MPs. The programme takes the form of a self-study course for Region and State Hluttaw Members. It is based on the existing online course ‘Parliaments in Practice’. This course introduces principles and practices of parliaments and the work of an MP through 8 modules. (the course is available online at https://learn.agora-parl.org/course/view.php?id=2) The course consists of both text and interactive features, such as diagrams, exercises and a testing component, all of which enhance the learning experience. The course has been adapted to fit the context of Myanmar’s Region and State Hluttaws and is made available as an online course and a mobile phone application. Both are also available to available to the interested public free of charge. Under the professional development programme the course is being introduced to all 14 Region and State Hluttaws. The introduction of the course began with five roll-out sessions at the Mandalay, Kachin, Mon, Kayin and and Chin Region and State Hluttaws in 2016 and early 2017. The programme approach was successful in building ICT skills for MPs along with building their knowledge on the course material. Taking into account the lessons learned from the first phase of implementation, the programme will continue in slightly adapted form. The programme for the 9 remaining Region and State Hluttaws will be very similar to the first five sessions. The training will be held at the 9 Hluttaw premises and will include a technical tutorial for staff and MPs on accessing the course, a live demonstration of course content and functions for MPs, self-paced learning for MPs, and question and answer sessions for MPs, where they can discuss the course material and receive clarifications. The training team will be composed of the national consultant and ICT trainers who will be responsible for the delivery of the technical tutorials for staff and for MPs The team will be supported by UNDP programme staff. To present the course to Members and to facilitate discussions in roll out session at 9 Region and State Hluttaws, UNDP requires the services of an experienced national consultant.
