Sida Support to the Pact Home Based Care Programme in Zimbabwe
Shinga Mupindu , Itayi Muvandi
Through Pact, 14 local NGO´s implement a home based care programme by building their capacity to deliver quality home based care. Pact has developed administrative and financial procedures for the NGOs, and trained caregivers in quality home based care. Pact seems to have good capacity as regards HIV/AIDS and mostly good office routines but limited capacity as regards strategic planning, gender, lobby and advocacy although they have subcontracted activities where they do not have the capacity. Most of the challenges seem to originate from a seemingly limited project design.
