Documents Related to overall Management Response:
 
1. Recommendation:

The MOUs with non-health ministries is a key instrument of mainstreaming and it is important that the Joint Working Groups (JWGs) meet regularly and robust monitoring system is put in place at the state level to gauge progress and to prevent disjointed response by line ministries

Management Response: [Added: 2017/12/07] [Last Updated: 2021/01/10]

The project built sufficient capacities at the central and state levels and established a Joint Working Group (JWG), representing signatories to the MOUs to meet regularly and monitor the progress. The  JWG meetings have proved helpful in bringing modification in schemes of relevant departments to make them HIV sensitive

2. Recommendation:

With growing digitization, there is need to find online solutions to link DAPCU, networks and line departments and promote greater use of Common Service Centres. This will promote efficiency, reduce corruption, ensure confidentiality and strengthen monitoring and database in the delivery of social protection services

Management Response: [Added: 2017/12/07] [Last Updated: 2021/01/10]

The project developed a portal for Social Protection Schemes anchored in NACO. The project also proposed a Social Protection model that combines the State led digitized initiative called E- Mitra with an increased outreach of CBOs and NGOs

Given the UNDP’s next country programme 2018-22 is unlikely to have a focused HIV /AIDS programme, it is expected that NACO will scale up the model as required

3. Recommendation:

As DAPCUs are likely to remain the lynchpin of the “single window” model they need to be strengthened and empowered with more funds at their disposal for training, monitoring and outreach so that they can perform their mandate as envisaged in the Guidance Note

Management Response: [Added: 2017/12/07] [Last Updated: 2021/01/10]

The “single window” model of social protection that was prototyped by UNDP in 2013 was scaled up and operationalized in 100 priority districts in 2014 and later scaled up to all 189 districts under DAPCU. That this scaling up was funded by the government out of their own resources and without additional staffing shows the effectiveness of the model as well as strong national commitment to providing HIV sensitive social protection. The Project has also built adequate capacities to sustain activities without external support but staff turnover, new interventions and need to stay engaged with partners and communities necessitate continuous capacity building of service providers and communities

With the historic Supreme Court judgment and constitutional recognition of transgender population as third gender, the government is expected to identify alternative livelihood opportunities treated with dignity. The TG welfare board have played a strong advocacy role in recognizing the rights of the transgender population
