Influence of Civil Society Management Schemes on Implementation of Hiv/aids Projects in Trans-nzoia West Sub-county, Kenya.
The Human Immunodeficiency Virus (HIV) which causes the Acquired Immune Deficiency Syndrome (AIDS) was first discovered in the early 1980s. It has spread more rapidly than most diseases in recent history, having social cultural, economic and moral repercussions on individuals, families, communities and threatening foundations of entire societies. The purpose of this study was to establish the influence of civil society‘s management schemes on implementation of HIV/AIDS project in Trans-Nzoia West Sub-County, Kenya. The study was guided by four objectives namely; to establish the influence of training on project implementation, and to establish the influence of awareness programmes on HIV/AIDS by civil society organizations on implementation of HIV and Aids project, determine the influence of civil societies counseling programmes on implementation of projects and lastly determine the influence of stakeholder involvement by civil societies on implementation of projects. The study will use a descriptive study design. The target population was the 151 respondents from CBOs, NGOs and FBOs. Census sampling technique was employed to target all the 153 respondents, hence the sample size of 153. Questionnaires will be used to collect data. The instruments validation exercise was done by the supervisor. Before the main study, pilot testing was done targeting 15 respondents from two organization implementing HIV/AIDs project in Trans-Nzoia East sub-county. Reliability of the instruments was determined through a pilot study where Cronbach alpha co-efficient will be obtained. A coefficient of 0.79 indicated that the instruments were highly reliable and therefore the researcher proceeded with data collection. Data were analyzed using descriptive statistics. The results were presented in form of tables and percentages. The findings were broadly discussed, conclusions drawn and recommendations made. The study concluded that the training, awareness programs, client counseling services and stakeholder involvement both had influence on project performance. Therefore if the civil society would continue with regular employee capacity building based on capacity needs, conduct regular awareness programmes, increase access to counseling services for their clients and involve the stakeholders at all level, the impact of their projects would be felt more. Based on the study findings, the researcher made the following recommendations: First, Joint awareness programmes with other actors should be adopted to minimize on costs and increase the impact of such activities. This would effectively address the challenge of reduced funding for awareness activities within Trans-Nzoia West sub-county. Use of posters, bill boards can also be used to pass certain messages which will be cheaper in the long run. Secondly, the project managers should carry out training need analyses in order to adequately plan to target all employees and completely attain training objectives. In house training can be adopted to ensure transfer of skills among employees; this would ensure that all employees are at per with required knowledge and skills.
