AFSA: Prevention Programs for Adolescent Girls and Young Women in South Africa

Deadline: 21 February 2019

AIDS Foundation of South Africa (AFSA) is currently inviting interested non-profit organisations and government departments, experienced in the programme areas under the scope of work and with presence in the provinces and districts identified, to apply to be considered as SRs. It is important to note that SRs are recommended by the PR, but appointment is subject to GF CCM approval.

SRs have a contractual relationship with, and are accountable to the PR. They are the direct implementers of programmes financed by GF but can sometimes work through or in collaboration with sub sub-recipients (SSRs).


The Global Fund AGYW Programme offers a comprehensive package of services that aim to improve her health, psychosocial and socio-economic wellbeing. The programme targets AGYW, in and out of school, age 15-24 years, with the aim to effect risk reduction, behaviour change and empowerment. Objectives of the AGYW programme are aligned to She Conquers Campaign and aim to:

  • Decrease HIV incidence
  • Decrease teenage pregnancy
  • Increase retention in school
  • Increase economic opportunities
  • Reduce gender based violence (GBV)


The responsibilities of SRs include the following:

  • Sign grant agreements with the PR and contract with SSRs, where necessary, under the guidance of PR.
  • Implement grants under the oversight of the PR and GF CCM, and manage SSRs and take responsibility for their performance where applicable.
  • Propose changes to the PR on work plans and budgets when necessary.
  • Participate in performance review meetings to improve grant performance and impact.
  • Report on programme progress and challenges to the PR through regular reports.
  • Identify key issues and implementation bottlenecks and escalate to the PR for guidance.
  • Provide information to the PR, GF Country Team, and GF CCM and its structures when requested to do so.
