Palladium Group is inviting applications for the post of DRMS National Consultant. National Consultant is to undertake the development of a Domestic Resource Mobilization Strategy (DRMS) by conducting a robust resource mapping study with a costed roadmap of actions for updating the DRMS from 2021 – 2025.
- Job Title: DRMS National Consultant
- Ref No: req8649
- Project Overview and Role
- Deadline: September 9, 2020
The Nigerian HIV and AIDS resource mobilization strategy was drafted in the year 2012 by the National Agency for the Control of AIDS (NACA) with support from DFID (ENR project). The document addressed how the Government of Nigeria could ensure the predictable and sustainable availability of adequate financial resources for the AIDS sector over the next 10 years (by 2022). That strategy concluded that, under a baseline scenario, a shortfall of resources would exist for much of the period under consideration, with a total financing gap for HIV and AIDS of Naira 732 billion from 2013 to 2022. Due to an anticipated decline in international donor support and increasing resource needs, the financing gap would continue to grow reaching Naira 141 billion in 2022, equivalent to 0.12% of GDP.
Roles and Responsibilities of the National Consultant:
- The National Consultant will work as part of the team of partners under NACA’s supervision and guidance while collaborating technically with HP+, UNAIDS, and WHO.
