The Continuum of prevention, care and treatment (CoPCT) of HIV/AIDS with Most-at-risk Populations in Cameroon (CHAMP) project, funded by the U.S. Agency for International Development (USAID) under Cooperative Agreement No. AID-624-A-14 -00003, began on April 15, 2014. The program is implemented by CARE International in Cameroon in collaboration with Johns Hopkins University (JHU), Metabiota, (MB), Moto Action, and six local community-based organizations (CBOs). In collaboration with PEPFAR agencies, the Government of Cameroon, the Global Fund, and other key stakeholders, CHAMP works in tandem with community-based partners to strengthen and expand human rights-affirming, evidence-based, client-friendly HIV prevention, care, and treatment services for men who have sex with men (MSM), female sex workers (FSW) and their children, and sex worker clients in Cameroon. The program aims to increase demand for, and access to, quality community and clinical services by reinforcing and expanding the creation of safe, friendly, competent community-led platforms, and integrating interventions within the larger services network. CHAMP also contributes to the evidence base as a learning program that helps drive strategic decision-making and resource planning. Starting in October 2019, the program will be extended for three years under the name CHAMP II. The program will build on the existing USAID-funded CHAMP program, with expansion to six regions and additional population groups. One of the requisites for the award is to transition complete ownership of planning, implementation, program and financial monitoring, and reporting to local partners by the end of the agreement.

The DCOPP will ensure that partners, including the TLO, consortium partners, and sub-grantees implement well-coordinated services that meet the needs of key and priority populations at international best practice standards.
The DCOPP will work in collaboration with the COP, the Organizational Development and Transition Technical Advisor (ODTTA), the Deputy Chief of Party – Finance and Administration (DCOPFA), the CARE Cameroun Country Director, the CARE USA Senior Technical Advisor – HIV/AIDS, and additional technical and administrative team members to ensure that the TLO and subgrantee partners have the requisite capacity to manage for results against PEPFAR targets throughout the cooperative agreement.

The DCOPP will lead the incorporation of technical innovations, quality assurance and improvement, implementation with fidelity, learning exchange among partners, sharing of lessons learned and best practices nationally and globally, and bringing to scale successful approaches.
