Technical Assistance Programme Faculty
Secure the Future

WHAT NEW ROLE ARE WE EXPLORING FOR BMSF STF?

Through offering a Technical Assistance Programme (TAP) and skills transfer program, Bristol-Myers Squibb Foundation (BMSF) and its implementing partners hope to address a strategic challenge of effective and operational multi-sectoral collaborations in HIV/AIDS and possibly other chronic conditions, while sustaining demonstration programs by sharing and replicating STF lessons, experiences and successful models.

Why this approach? We are capitalising on STF’s funding and program management experience and expertise as well as a track record showcasing our committed private public partnership program.

SECURE THE FUTURE IS OFFERING THE FOLLOWING PACKAGE:

- Technical assistance and know-how transfer and
- Technical assistance and seed funding package, limited to programs in Africa.

Programme support will be executed by an experienced and expert pool of faculty members who have played a critical role in  supporting NGO’s and CBO’s to provide essential services in the BMSF’s Community Based Treatment and NGO Training Institute Programmes. They will share their experience, knowledge and expertise. The aim of the faculty is to develop and strengthen organisational and technical capacity and leverage and harness the potential of civil society in improve health outcomes of health programmes.

With the evolution of HIV/AIDS, civil society responds to a myriad of challenges.  Organisations and programs may request partnership or may be invited by BMSF Secure The Future to participate according to the context and their needs.

This programme will benefit

  • National and district programmes
  • Non-governmental and community based organisations
  • Special group programs, etc.

STF TAP also prioritises replication requests that fulfils BMSF mandate of the bridging health gaps and addressing disparities.
