All activities were previously planned and approved in ROP13 to be implemented in FY14. All activities will be completed in FY14. No additional funds requested for this mechanism.

JHU will utilize pipeline funds to conduct SI programming in Dominican Republic. Systems will be developed and implemented in the partner military to collect disease surveillance and program monitoring information. Activities will be supported by training and computer system development. This activity will support increased capacity within the Central American militaries in the areas of surveillance, monitoring and evaluation (M&E), and analysis and utilization of strategic information. Activities will encourage the partner militariy to review and utilize data to improve the military healthcare system, direct policies, and improve the quality and cost-effectiveness of HIV prevention, treatment, and care and support services in militaries. Continued support for building capacity will be provided in the areas of monitoring and evaluation and use of strategic information. Short term TA and periodic on-site mentorship will be provided in data collection, utilization of program monitoring data, and complimenting the goals of the national strategic plans for HIV/AIDS. Improvements will be made to the militarys’ health information management systems enabling them to provide strategic, data-based decisions in a timely manner. Capacity will be built among defense force personnel to conduct operations research to evaluate the effectiveness of program implementations (e.g. behavioral intervention assessments). TA will be provided for the timely and accurate collection of national HIV indicators within military HIV programs and facilitate data flow mechanisms for linkage to national and regional sy

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 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.
