    Closing date: 24 Feb 2017

    As the global response to HIV strives to improve the continuum of HIV care in low and middle income countries, synthesis of evidence from a diverse and enlarging pool of interventions targeting this cascade is urgently needed. Traditional evidence synthesis through paper-based and peer-reviewed systematic reviews and meta-analyses often emerge months and sometimes years after primary data are published and may also fail to capture very recent data. Furthermore, traditional reviews are also fixed with respect to strategic choices about the framing of the review question as well as technical specifications such as inclusion criteria and weighting – which may change as new data emerge. In short, evidence synthesis must be more nimble and quick to optimize its value. To catalyse the synthesis and use of evidence in the rapidly evolving field of implementation science to address HIV, WHO is seeking to develop an open-access “living database” of implementation interventions and which can yield “living meta-analyses” continuously and in real time on the internet on a variety of interventions and cascade targets.

    The contractor will assist WHO/HIV-TAC with Technical expert support to WHO’s work on developing an open access web-based database of implementation interventions. The activity coordination will be done through a project steering committee, under the supervision of the HIV Treatment and Care Unit of the HIV/AIDS department.

    Main Tasks:

    The key steps that are envisaged in the development of the living database are as follows:

    1. Database concept development.

    2. Database software development

    3. Data entry

    4. Creation and fine tuning of the user interface

    5. Launch of the database

    6. Maintenance (data entry and IT support)

    7. Sustainability

    Key requirements for this consultancy:

    Essential Education:

    • Coordinator: Advanced degree in Medicine or Public Health
    • IT expert: Web-based platform development and maintenance expertize
    • Data manager: Expertize in data management and visualization

    Skills and Competencies:

    • Good communication and presentation skills
    • Demonstrated capacity to write and communicate in English
    • Ability to manage grants and report on deliverables

    Project summary:

    Over the years, WHO and partners have published various guiding documents which have relevance for the use of strategic information for the health sector response. Some documents need to be updated or complemented with additional information, from country experience, and with supporting tools, to be used in countries.

    The release of WHO’s Consolidated Guidelines on Strategic Information (SI) for the HIV health sector response” in 2015 was a good time to strengthen tools and guidance to better support countries in patient and case reporting and provide tools to support the monitoring of the cascade of HIV health sector services. The Consolidated Strategic Information Guide supports consistent data at each stage of the services cascade linked to impact, and to support the 90, 90, 90 goals for HIV.

    This consolidated SI guide helps programme managers to assess the effectiveness of interventions and linkages between services along the cascade of treatment and care for HIV, to support cascade analysis linked to impact, and to promote updated patient and case based reporting to support this. To support countries in implementing the new strategic information framework and HIV prevention and treatment recommendations, WHO HIV Department is producing updated consolidated guidance for HIV patient monitoring, case base surveillance and unique identifier. The release is planned for April 2017.

    At all levels - facility, district and national - quality patient data that are linked to individual care

    • provide the basis for monitoring patient progress and the effectiveness and impact of health services along the cascade of HIV testing, prevention, treatment and care, and for monitoring progress against national and global HIV indicators and targets, including the 90-90-90 targets.
    • are essential to ensure that people receive and are linked to the services they need in a timely manner, are retained in care over the long-term, and achieve good treatment outcomes, including viral suppression.
    • are essential for monitoring the state of the epidemic and the impact of the response, as well as for improving HIV program quality and ensuring effective planning and allocation of resources.

    Objective:

    The expert provider will assist WHO/HIV-SIP with Technical expert support to WHO’s work on improving Case Based Surveillance and Patient Monitoring Systems.

    The expert provider shall be a for profit or not for profit institution, or an individual consultant, operating in the field of public health, with proven expertise in Health Information Systems, (Case based surveillance, patient monitoring systems and unique identifiers).

    Main Tasks:

    The key specific activities that are envisaged, for the first year only, in support to WHO’s work on improving Case Based Surveillance and Patient Monitoring Systems are as follows:

    1. Best practice review and consolidated landscape analysis on existing HIV PM, CS and UI, with gaps and initial priorities

    2. Production of technical and dissemination materials on WHO consolidated PM&Cs and unique identifier and support to dissemination meetings

    3. Establish pool of experts to produce technical support to four countries on PM&CB and UI
