Kenya Red Cross Society Call for Consultancy - Global Fund Round 10 HIV Programme Implementers On-site Capacity Assessment

Kenya Red Cross Society is one of the largest humanitarian organisations in Kenya.

Its vision is to be the most effective, most trusted and self-sustaining humanitarian organisation in the country.

Global Fund is an international institution that invests the World’s money to save lives. The Global Fund works on the principles of ownership, accountability and results.

Kenya has for a number of years been a beneficiary of funding from the Global Fund against Malaria, TB and HIV and AIDS. The country has once again been awarded the Global Fund Round 10 Grant to cover Malaria and HIV and AIDS interventions for the next 5 years.

The Kenya Country Coordinating Mechanism (KCM) subsequently appointed Kenya Red Cross Society as the Principal Recipient (PR) for the Non State actors, so as to manage, coordinate and implement the Global Fund Round 10 HIV and AIDS Grant.

Kenya Red Cross Society issued an Expression of Interest, requesting organisations to submit applications for inclusion in the National programme as implementers. The Selection was done by an independent consulting firm. From the exercise a number of implementers were selected.

Kenya Red Cross Society is, therefore, requesting for Consultancy services to conduct On-site Capacity Assessment of the selected implementers for verification of capacity inclusion as implementers/ sub recipients in the Global Fund Round 10 HIV Programme.
