The Ghana Armed Forces (GAF) play a vital role in national security, peacekeeping actions throughout the continent and humanitarian assistance/disaster management. The GAF has 12,000 members comprised mainly of men in the age group 19-49. Jhpiego will support the United States Department of Defense HIV/AIDS Prevention Program (DHAPP) partnership with the GAF to implement the goal of reducing new infections among members of the GAF, their families and communities. In addition through this partnership, the target populations (military members, their families and community members) will experience increased access HIV care and treatment services, improved laboratory capacity and health systems. Jhpiego, uses the Prism monitoring and evaluation system in their worldwide HIV/AIDS programs, this system provides in-time information to program mangers and allows for rapid response to any issues that arise in program implementation. The program is committed to longer term cost-sharing on the the part of GAF for this valuable program, at this time the GAF is making a significant contribution of active duty military personnel to serve as peer educators and HTC counselors. As training materials and methods are routinized, the GAF will be able to assume larger role in the operation of the program.

Mechanism Target Information

Since COP2014, PEPFAR no longer produces narratives for every mechanism it funds. However, PEPFAR has now included performance targets or indicator information for each mechanism based on the Monitoring, Evaluation, and Reporting (MER) system. The MER guidance is available on PEPFAR's website https://www.pepfar.gov/reports/guidance/. Note that COP years 2014-2015 were under a previous version of the MER system and the indicators and definitions may have changed as of the new 2.0 guidance.
