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.

Jhpiego will build on past experience working with CDC/Zambia and the Ministry of Health (MOH) to achieve the goal of supporting Zambia’s response to the HIV/AIDS epidemic by expanding quality interventions in HIV/AIDS prevention, care and treatment and building the capacity of MOH, National HIV/AIDS/STI/TB Council (NAC) and other Zambian organizations to deliver quality service in a sustained manner.

Jhpiego’s objectives support the Government of the Republic of Zambia’s (GRZ) National AIDS Strategic Framework (NASF) goal and the joint GRZ and USG Partnership Framework goal to reduce new HIV infections while scaling up treatment, care and support. Our capacity building of healthcare providers is in line with the National Health Strategic Plan (NHSP) objective to improve the availability of and distribution of health workers in the country.

The target geographical areas are mainly the Southern, Western and Eastern Provinces of Zambia which were chosen to continue building capacity and to strengthen the integration of results obtained in the past. Jhpiego works at the national level by supporting the MOH in their ongoing activities such as the Epidemiology for Data Use Package work group, MC roll-out in all nine provinces, and implementation of the ART Continuing Medical Education.

To ensure collection of necessary PEPFAR program-level indicators and other output data for project monitoring, Jhpiego will work through the MOH district, provincial and central level information systems, when feasible, and directly with health facilities when proper information systems are not in place, especially for newer areas such as MC. Jhpiego will use the training information monitoring system (TIMS), to track persons trained in order to facilitate follow-up and record keeping.

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.
