NOTE: The following is taken from summaries released by PEPFAR on the PEPFAR Data Dashboard. They are incomplete summary paragraphs only and do not contain the full mechanism details. When the full narratives are released, we will update the mechanism pages accordingly.

While the Kenya health sector has made major strides including devolution of services, a number of systemic issues still persist. The Kenya health sector policies outline the need for Kenyans to have sustainable access to and appropriate use of safe, effective, quality medicines and other health technologies as envisioned in the Kenya constitution. Improving access to health commodities remains key to achieving the health outcomes for HIV prevention, care and treatment and is priority for both the Kenya Ministry of Health and USG/PEPFAR.

MSH/HCSM will provide technical assistance to the MoH at the national level and also selected counties on supply chain issues, management and use of HIV/AIDS commodities and related services. MSH/HCSM will support MOH and stakeholders to develop and implement relevant policies, strategies, guidelines, and tools for commodities management of HIV and related services.

To ensure efficiencies, MSH/HCSM will seek collaboration with other partners, leverage resources for targeted interventions during implementation to improve access to health commodities. Through the system strengthening approach, MSH/HCSM will identify opportunities for integration of activities, as well as strengthen linkages with other health service delivery areas.

To build local ownership and ensure handover to MoH for sustainability, MSH/HCSM will build the capacity of MoH staff at national and county levels in providing stewardship for health commodity management. As such, MSH/HCSM will ensure joint planning, implementation and monitoring with MoH counterparts at national and county level using commonly agreed indicators for progress on improving access and use of health commodities.

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.
