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.

Until March 2016 HC3 will build capacity of GoE to fully manage, finance, and operate the AIDS Resource Center (ARC) in response to Ethiopia’s HIV epidemic, and in line with GHI principles. This transitioning process will include transfer of mass and small media, the Talkline, the regional resource centers, and capacity to support strategic behavior change communication (SBCC) programs. The process will also support adjustments in all of these ARC components to be responsive to the mixed epidemic context which requires a focus on HIV prevention among MARPs or core populations under PEPFAR Ethiopia. HC3 will work at the national level with FHAPCO to design, implement, and evaluate SBCC programs focusing on core populations in HIV hot spots across Ethiopia. The goal is to build the capacity of the GOE to provide technical leadership in SBCC; build capacity of SBCC professionals and institutions; and increase the practice of HIV preventive behaviors among core populations (CPs). Priority outcomes include prevention of new HIV infections and linkages to MARPS-friendly HIV services. HC3 will complement ongoing work of partner projects for cost efficiency. HC3 will work with MULU Prevention to ensure coordination between HC3 capacity building and MULU's town-level work with providers. HC3 will use a variety of approaches for M&E in compliance with USAID Evaluation Policy. HC3 will ensure that relevant PEPFAR indicators are addressed, and that indicators responsive to HC3’s Performance Monitoring Plan are included. Additional custom indicators will be determined in collaboration with USAID and HAPCO. This mechanism will receive additional funds of $ 492,298 from future proposed reprograming to meet its total spend amount of $1,300,000.

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.
