NGO Coordination

Non-governmental organizations in any country or community have an important role to play with ministries and schools adding to and complementing capacity to address HIV and AIDS and other health issues. To maximize the impact of NGO involvement, it is desirable that their services align with overall education sector policy and that they are coordinated with other programmes and services.

EDC developed and piloted a tool, Ensuring Quality: Ministry of Education and NGOs Responding to the AIDS Pandemic, with funding from JICA and UNESCO Kingston Cluster Office for the Caribbean, administered through the Inter American Development Bank and CARICOM/PANCAP. This product is available to assist ministries of education in developing protocols and quality assurance procedures for identifying, selecting, and contracting NGO services for schools.
