    The major responsibilities of the fellow will include (but are not limited to):
    • Writing and publishing papers (and shorter pieces) that assess issues at the intersection of energy and national security, including economic, military, and other challenges, as well as policy options for addressing vulnerabilities.
    • Commissioning, supervising, and editing papers by non-CFR experts on challenges and opportunities at the intersection of energy and national security.
    • Organizing and leading workshops and roundtables for CFR members, officials, and experts in the area of energy and national security.
    • Meeting with administration officials, members of Congress, and their staffs to brief them on findings and recommendations of the project on energy and national security.
    • Interacting with CFR's distinguished membership and participating in Council programs and activities.
    • Educating a broader public audience through media interviews and public speaking.

    [h=3]Consultant for a study on the uptake of health services by the Roma community and general population using the same facilities, Home Based with missio[/h]
    Albania is considered a low HIV prevalence country. It has been estimated that HIV prevalence in Albania is < 0.1% which follows the low prevalence pattern of South Eastern European Countries. As of December 2010, there are 408 HIV reported cases, 123 of which females.. More than 90 % of these infections occurred due to sexual contact (82% heterosexual and 10% homo-bisexual), and the most affected age group is people between the ages of 25 and 44 years. It is widely accepted that these data underestimate the scale of the HIV/AIDS epidemic in Albania, and do not represent the real number of people infected with HIV.
    The country's specific socio-economic condition and the regional context of HIV/AIDS influence the vulnerability and the risk for rapid spread of HIV/AIDS epidemic, particularly among most-at-risk populations. Furthermore, the results from the repeated bio-behavioural surveillance studies in 2005 and 2008 indicate that high risk behaviours are still present among most-at-risk populations. Members of Roma community are considered a vulnerable group towards HIV/AIDS as compared to the rest of the population for a number of reasons. First, the poverty and mobility are well known risk factors associated with increased vulnerability towards HIV/AIDS. As a consequence, many Roma children live as street children and get involved in beggary and/or sex work. Second, the segregation, the discrimination and the low social cohesion contributes to poor education and lack of access towards preventive messages and efforts shaped for the general population. Third, there exist more “specific” exposures such as the reported earlier start of the sexual life due also to early marriages, increased number of sexual partners and higher uptake and use of drugs, including injecting drugs. It is for all these reasons that Roma people are considered a vulnerable group towards HIV/AIDS and dealt with separately in the context of the National Strategy for HIV/AIDS Prevention and Control
    Two Bio-BSS studies have been conducted among Roma community.
    The results show that one-third is younger than 24 years, more than one-third has never attended school, and 94% have been married. Two out of three female Roma married before the age of 16, and one in three had their first sexual experience between the ages of 10 and 14. These background characteristics indicate that HIV/STI vulnerability among female Roma may be increased by their early sexual initiation and early marriages and not having been exposed to prevention programs that are provided through the school system.
    Despite the fact that the majority of respondents know where to obtain condoms, only 2% use condoms consistently with a regular partner, but 36% use condoms with non-regular partners.
    HIV/STI knowledge among the Roma was frequently less than that in the General Population, except for a few indicators. For example, fewer Roma had heard about STIs when compared with the General Population. Among those who had heard of STIs, however, knowledge about symptoms was similar among the two groups. Also, many knew that confidential HIV testing was available in Tirana, but only 3.5 % had been tested.
    There is an increase on the number of services (funded by GFATM, Government and other international institutions) provided to vulnerable population such as Roma community. VCT centers have been established in 12 prefectures offering services to general population. Although the number of VCT is expanding the number of people using this service is still very low. The preventive activities have closely worked with Roma NGOs, establishing good communication with these organizations such as: the Roma Active Albania, Romani Bact, Amarodrom dhe Qendra e Gruas per Zhvillim, Romet per Integrim, Shprese per te Vaferit.
    The last DHS undertaken in Albania showed a disproportion on knowledge and attitudes regarding prevention among the general Albanian population. Based on this study 26% of women and 40% of men know where to get tested on HIV but only 2% of women and 3% of men have been tested on HIV and know their results. Based on the same study 83 % of women and 68% of men perceives the service at health facilities at least good (respectively 34% and 21% as very good) which reinforce that low uptake of services may not rely on the low quality and professionalism of those serving. The findings indicate that about half of women (49 percent) and 88 percent of men with an STI or symptoms of an STI did not seek any treatment or professional medical advice for the infection.
    Main Objective of the study
    The aim of the study is to suggest to the technical and political officials the best how the service facilities can fulfill the needs of the targeted population surpassing the behavioral barriers
    The study would focus on why the services are not approached by the population and also how and what should they change to reach their target population. The following angles will be part of the study:
    • Evaluation of HIV/AIDS and reproductive health services provided to Roma communit.y
    • Qualitative study which will target population needs, behavioural elements which affect the uptake of services.
    • Evaluate the possibility to match the request/needs (1) and service providers (2) and recommend the best way to improve the service provision and the way to provide them with effect to prevention, treatment and care.

    [h=3]Monitoring and Evaluation Consultant, Johannesburg[/h]
    The UNDP regionalization and practice architecture framework document issued in February 2008 defines the functions of the Regional Service Centres including support to the implementation of the Regional Programme.
