THE PURPOSE OF CALL FOR PROPOSAL

Country Coordinating Mechanism (CCM) and Principal Recipient (PR) in Indonesia has taken a rapid review of Community-based monitoring and feedback (CBMF) mechanisms by the end of 2017. Rapid review on CBMF mechanism includes mapping the monitoring mechanisms and feedback for all activities which have been carried out or implemented by the government and civil society organisations. Moreover, the rapid review also has identified the latest CBMF activities which proposed in new funding request (2018-2020). The rapid review came up with suggestions and recommendations to strengthened CBMF mechanism which has been available for TB and HIV programs in Indonesia.

Based on the recommendations from the rapid review of CBMF, the Global Fund in its grant confirmation letter suggested Indonesia to develop robust strategies based on community monitoring. These strategies were then designed with the participation of the community, endorsed by the CCM and finally approved by the Global Fund.

The strategies of CBMF that has been approved by GF are as follows:

1. Building comprehensive community-based monitoring and feedback (CBMF) mechanism through the establishment of an integrated community information system (CIS). Integrated Community Information System (CIS) is proposed to be made based on the foundation of community-based monitoring tools that have been identified by Rapid Review. The proposed CIS is a dashboard platform with three reporting protocols, including 1) Client satisfaction reporting protocol; 2) Reporting protocol to create a conducive environment, and 3) reporting protocol for program quality assurance.
2. Ensuring a robust response mechanism is in place to effectively respond to beneficiaries’ feedback together with national and sub-national programme stakeholders. Strategy 2 is built based on the results of the activities carried out on strategy 1. Data from the Community Information System (CIS) will be used to inform community activities, program learning, planning and development, and advocacy to improve policies, guidelines, coordination and collaboration. This strategy aims to develop a community-led response system and strengthen planning and coordination efforts between civil society and key stakeholders by creating structured opportunities for meaningful engagement. The proposed CIS will also consider its dashboard, tracking protocol to ensure a robust response mechanism is applied to data generated from all three reporting protocols in Strategy 1.

The goal of Community-based Monitoring and Feedback is to improve health outcomes of HIV beneficiaries by protecting their rights, improve and sustain the quality of lives through the strengthening of health and community systems, implement service quality assurance and the creation of enabling environments.

The objectives of CBMF are as follows:

  1. To complement the national HIV programmes efforts in identifying and resolving challenges in service delivery by providing platforms for service users and programme beneficiaries to provide feedback;
  2. To forge better coordination with multi-sector partners on HIV to respond to challenges and opportunities presented by local policy and legal environments that act as barriers to accessing appropriate, quality health and social services;
  3.
