Since HIV cases were first reported in Indonesia in 1987, the epidemic has spread very widely to around 543,100 infections according to the Ministry of Health’s 2020 estimates with a loss to follow-up (LTFU) case rate and an alarming death rate. The latest treatment data from May 2020 shows that there are only 62% of the estimated PLWHA in Indonesia who know their status, 21% of PLWHA who know their status is on treatment, and 1.5% of PLWHA who are undergoing treatment have viral suppression. According to a rapid assessment of 90-90-90 achievements from a community perspective conducted at the end of 2020, most of the challenges arise from the lack of a solid relationship between patients and health care which is driven by several factors including entrenched stigma and discrimination, as well as the burden of health care. Another thing that has become a concern in the HIV control program and is one of the causes of challenges and obstacles is Gender-Based Violence (GBV). Based on data obtained from WHO, four things can link GBV to HIV prevention programs, either directly or indirectly. Sexual violence is the most important part, with HIV as a result of sexual transmission through rape, another link is related to the disclosure of HIV status which has an impact on violence. Another influencing link is gender inequality and Intimate Partner Violence (IPV).
In general, GBV greatly affects access to testing and treatment, so CBOs implementing HIV control programs must have an understanding of GBV in general and IPV in particular. As the increase in GBV cases impacts outreach efforts, response strategies should be implemented as a precaution to be included and integrated into outreach methods.
This program aims to reduce the impact of GBV and respond to cases of GBV by involving outreach officers, peer mentors, paralegals, and advocacy officers. Other integrations will also be explored, namely by referring detected IPV and GBV survivors to services needed by victims, for example, legal aid services through Community Paralegals to be referred to Legal Aid Organizations, as well as other services needed by victims.
After identifying the needs for handling IPV/GBV cases needed by key population groups in the GBV Module Revision activity, the next step is to establish a case handling mechanism and referral system in every case handling experienced by the community.
The main objectives of this activity are as follows:
There is a referral system for GBV survivors in terms of medical, psychosocial, safe houses, and legal assistance in the integration of PSP and CSS – HR programs.
While the specific objectives of this activity are as follows:
- 1. Identify existing violence referral services in each city/district or province.
- 2. Identify community-friendly violence referral services.
- 3. Identify the response of violence referral services to HIV and the community.
- 4. Assess the violence service model for the community and identify successes, good practices, or areas for further development.
- 5. Evaluate violence services so that they can provide recommendations to the government, NGOs, and other cooperation partners on appropriate strategies to address community needs related to violence in accordance with the needs of survivors of the violence.
The required time in the making of this Referral System Module is one and a half months (1.5 months) after the contract has been signed- that is from mid of June 2022 to the end of July 2022. The completion of the report should be finished by end of July 2022.
