Job Title: Consultant (Workplace HIV Male Engagement)
SHOPS Plus is USAID’s flagship initiative in private sector health. The primary goal of the project is to improve health outcomes and contribute to the achievement of major global efforts, especially Ending Preventable Child and Maternal Deaths, AIDS-free Generation, and FP2020. SHOPS Plus Tanzania aims to increase the use of priority health services for family planning (FP), HIV, and malaria by strengthening the capacity of the private sector to provide quality health products and services, improving the enabling environment for private sector provision of health products and services, and improving ownership of total market approaches within Tanzanian institutions.

In alignment with Tanzania’s National Workplace Policy on HIV and AIDS and the HIV and AIDS Prevention and Control Act of 2008, the latter of which mandates that employers offer HIV programs to their employees, SHOPS Plus will design and implement workplace HIV intervention pilot(s) targeting male employees in collaboration with select corporate partners. Prior to designing and implementing said pilot(s), SHOPS Plus will conduct formative qualitative research with corporate partner employees to inform intervention design and ensure they reflect the end-users perspectives and preferences.

The consultant will be tasked with:
1) Designing and overseeing implementation of 1-2 HIV workplace pilot interventions targeting male employees.
a. The consultant will design pilot(s) in collaboration with SHOPS Plus staff, corporate partners, USAID/Tanzania, key stakeholders from the Tanzanian government, and private sector clinical HIV partners (i.e., Key Partners).
