JHPIEGO is the prime partner for the Maternal and Child Health Integrated Program (MCHIP), USAID’s flagship maternal, neonatal and child health (MNCH) program. MCHIP seeks to address pre-service needs for HIV prevention, treatment, care and support among midwifery, community health and public health nurse training institutions. These include HIV technical updates for tutors, training of preceptors, development and/or review of training curricula. JHPIEGO/MCHIP works to expand key MNCH services, including the integration of the prevention of HIV and treatment of HIV/AIDS, into appropriate health care services. Much of this work has been primarily through training and supportive supervision of providers. JHPIEGO/MCHIP uses a competency-based approach to improve the skills and knowledge of providers in evidence-based practices. Improve the quality of PMTCT education and HIV, STI and AIDS care, and to develop and strengthen practicum sites. Emphasis will be on a competency-based approach supported by learning guides, job aids and learning models materials. All programs will include basic knowledge and skills to work with MARP.

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.
