Open position of IT PROGRAMMER CONSULTANT FOR JAKARTA AIDS INFORMATION SYSTEM (JAIS 2.0) BACKEND DEVELOPMENT

PROJECT
OVERVIEW
The USAID-funded
project, Linkages Across the Continuum of HIV Services for Key Populations
Affected by HIV (LINKAGES), under the President’s Emergency Plan for AIDS
Relief (PEPFAR) program is implemented by FHI 360 in partnership with Pact,
IntraHealth International and the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill,
and conducts a range of activities to reduce HIV transmission among key
populations (KP) — sex workers, men who have sex with men, transgender persons
and people who inject drugs — and improve their enrollment and retention in
care and treatment across the HIV cascade. LINKAGES will accelerate the ability
of governments, key population leaders, organizations working with key
populations, and private-sector providers to plan and implement services that
reduce HIV transmission among key populations and their sexual partners and
extend the lives of those already living with HIV. The key elements of the FHI

360-led team’s strategic and technical approach are:1.    Identifying key

populations and locales and comprehensively assessing risk,2.    Diagnosing “leaks” and
revealing access barriers within the HIV services cascade,3.    Scaling up “what works”
while innovating to ensure the most strategic use of resources and access to
newly emerging technologies,4.    Addressing structural
barriers and transforming local KP organizations,5.    Ensuring interventions
are sustainable over the long term, and6.    Supporting the
mainstreaming of human rights, gender and competency and capacity development.As part of the ultimate
goal 3, Scaling up “what works” while
innovating to ensure the most strategic use of resources and access to newly
emerging technologies
, LINKAGES plans to develop two software/application.
The first one is for Community Outreach Management System (COMS) and the second
one is for Technical Assistances Activity Record and Tracking (TRACY). SCOPE
OF WORK
Accurate
and reliable data is required by organizations planning, implementing,
monitoring and funding the HIV response in Indonesia. Many activities are
carried out by non-government organizations (NGOs) in HIV prevention, care and
support, and in referral to HIV testing, ART and other forms of medical
assistance, for key populations (KPs). HIV Data interoperability in Indonesia
today is similarly like Banking Concept Before 1990 (prior to ATM Link was
Launched). It can imagine how is the world if banking system database still in
stand-alone condition. Unfortunately, data exchange mechanism in several
institutions, department and government did not adopt ATM Link system yet.  Lack of interoperability is a main driver of
inefficiency and has impacted the timely availability of data. This is
happening in most of government organization for data management system, for
example in Jakarta Province Aids Commission, PAC had a JAIS (Jakarta Aids
Information system) but it is still stand alone and have very limited data
parameter to analysis.  Since
Linkages Promote that Government organization (like PAC with JAIS) should have
a Data Bank System as solution utilizes the power of ATM technology, it Will
require that the LINKAGES support on development of a new backend database for
JAIS. Alpha version of database already developed by Linkages and now need to
be expended to beta version. This beta version of new system will enable CSOs
to submit data directly into JAIS. It is meant as an interim solution, and will
eventually no longer be necessary for most CSOs once they have a functional
client management database that is fully interoperable with JAIS. Base on
this requirement, Linkages will be recruited a short term consultant to develop
form and link to database (new JAIS backend). During the assignment Incumbent
also modified the JAIS Backend application for CSO Desktop application (client
management database), installed locally in CSO computer, promote new form among
relevant CSOs, develop training materials on using new form, together with
Linkages team, consultant also will conduct a Training for CSOs on how to use
the form.  GOAL  –       Develop/Upgrade of JAIS
Backend application from Alpha Version to Beta 1.0 Version–       Develop of client
management database application (Beta 1.0 Version), install and test in CSO
