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.

The goal of the SIAPS program in Mozambique is to assure access to safe, efficacious, and quality pharmaceuticals products and effective pharmaceutical services that will contribute to the achievement of desired health outcomes. SIAPS will work towards achieving this goal using a systems-strengthening approach that focuses on improving governance, human resource capacity, use of strategic information for decision making and the delivery of services at the facility level within the public pharmaceutical sector, with special emphasis on strengthening the Pharmacy Department (PD) and the Department of Hospital Pharmacy (DFH) of the National Directorate for Medical Assistance. In FY14, SIAPS will provide technical guidance and tools to two pilot Drug and Therapeutic Committees (DTCs) in carrying out medicine use evaluations (MUE) of ARVs and drugs for opportunistic infections in order to identify problem areas and propose recommendations. SIAPS will support the DTCs in the two hospitals to strengthen the availability and use of strategic information for improved decision making in the pharmaceutical sector. Experiences and lessons gained from the various activities in the two hospitals will allow DFH/DNAM to consolidate the results and better practices and then generate wider policy recommendations regarding DTC support and roll-out of tools, data analysis and data use of ARVs to the provincial level. SIAPS will ensure country ownership by the Ministry of Health in the strengthening of the NDRA and DNAM/DFH to ensure that the activities implemented to strengthen pharmacy services under this project will be sustainable. No purchased/leased vehicles under this mechanism.

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.
