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.

USAID/Namibia has a clear vision for its role in transitioning PEPFAR to an innovative TA program that protects USG investments in Namibia’s national multi-sectoral HIV response, working in partnership with the GRN to address policy and programmatic challenges. This mechanism is a follow on with Jhpiego, continuing previous MCHIP work. The objectives are to expand access to and quality of integrated HIV/SRH and health extension services for vulnerable populations, including adolescents and young adults. This aligns with PEPFAR’s Blueprint outcome on identifying and achieving efficiencies that reduce costs and build sustainable national HIV responses, the Partnership Framework, National Strategic Framework for HIV/AIDS and the Global Health Initiative. The mechanism will deliver TA at the national and sub-national level to support the Ministry of Health (MOHSS) in HIV/SRH integration in primary health care (PHC) and institutionalization of the health extension program (HEP), including the integration of HIV and TB into the HEP. HEP is a domestically financed effort to increase access to services at the community level. Jhpiego will work with local organizations to strengthen their capacity to implement high quality integrated HIV services. Joint planning, supervision and monitoring will build government institutional capacity for HEP and HIV/SRH integration. Cost efficiency is gained by integrating HIV/SRH services in PHC and by providing a comprehensive health package at the community level. To assure sustainability, HEP training will transition to GRN training institutions by 2016. REDACTED

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.

This mechanism has no published performance targets or indicators.
