Strengthening Strategic Information Activities in the Kingdom of Lesotho under the President’s Emergency Plan for AIDS Relief (PEPFAR)

Grant Amount: Approximate Current Fiscal Year Funding: $1,200,000; Approximate Total Project Period Funding: $6,000,000.

The goal and objectives of the program in Lesotho is to strengthen the capacity of Lesotho to collect and use surveillance data to manage the national HIV/AIDS program.

By 2018 the implementing partner will:
(1) strategically plan for support to the MoH in the areas of surveillance, monitoring, and evaluation through the development of a strategic plan.
(2) develop a strategic plan for strategic information (SI) capacity building with the MoH through implementation of a training curriculum for key SI staff in the MoH.
(3) strengthen the national monitoring and evaluation system so that it is fully functional and unified and able to generate information of high quality that can be used as evidence for strategic decision making and for responding to country and donor requirements.
(4) create mapping, spatial data, and geospatial tools to create a data-driven, integrated, results-oriented picture of the HIV epidemic in Lesotho by developing or improving national spatial data infrastructure, geospatial tools, and spatial data standards and metadata.

The purpose of this FOA is to strengthen the collection, analysis, and use of strategic information for the national HIV/AIDS program in Lesotho. This program specifically seeks to strengthen the systems that support HIV Monitoring and Evaluation, HIV Surveillance and Epidemic Analysis, and other Health Information (such as geospatial data) as well as the SI human and institutional capacity to staff, support, and use these systems and data.
