REVISED Hivos Job Vacancy : Program Manager-Philippines (Full time)

Hivos is a non-governmental organization inspired by humanist values. Our
mission is to contribute to the
creation of a free, fair and sustainable world, in which men and women have
equal access to resources and opportunities for development and can actively
and equally participate in decision-making processes, which determine their

lives, society and future.  


Hivos has an
extensive 40-year track record in strengthening civil society groups and can
-as a broad development organization- explain the relationship between HIV and
other sectors. In its HIV policy interventions, Hivos believes that everyone has the
right to care, information and prevention. One of the main pillars of the work
of Hivos is the desire to enhance access to power and means. Hivos wants to
promote free choices, citizenship and democracy. In the case of HIV Aids, this
will require more than treatment and behaviour change. Hivos would also need a
stigma-free environment and good quality services, so that people with different
sexual identities and HIV can actually make healthy choices without fear,
stigma, discrimination and taboos. The above-mentioned record of accomplishment has,
amongst other things, led to Hivos to be principal recipient of in many
countries of the Global Fund to fight AIDS, Tuberculosis and Malaria. In this
role, Hivos has been able to realize its main goals, to mobilize vulnerable
groups and to increase their access to resources and citizenship.

model requires countries to transition to inclusive health sector governance

Engaging with the non-public sector

requirements of the NFM. KNCV and its partners, AFEW, Hivos and PharmAccess are

organizations and promote inclusive health governance. We aim to improve access

Nigeria, and Philippines.
