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.

USAID/Namibia has a clear vision for its role in transitioning PEPFAR to an innovative TA program that protects USG investments in Namibia’s national multi-sectoral HIV response, working in partnership with the GRN to address policy and programmatic challenges. This mechanism, implemented by Management Science for Health (MSH), System for Improved Access to Pharmaceuticals and Services (SIAPS) works at national and sub-national levels to improve access to quality HIV pharmaceutical systems and services. Sustainability is achieved through strengthening of existing systems. This is in line with PEPFAR’s Blueprint outcome to increase the quality of HIV treatment programs and achieve efficiencies, the Partnership Framework for Namibia, and the Global Health Initiative. MSH will strengthen the capacity of the Ministry of Health (MOHSS) to ensure ownership and management of effective pharmaceutical services for the HIV response. Cost efficiency is gained by improved forecasting and rational use of HIV/AIDS commodities/medicines. In line with PEPFAR Namibia’s principles of transition, the focus in COP14 is to strengthen institutional leadership through mentoring of critical pharmaceutical human resources. MSH will provide TA to the newly established School of Pharmacy at the University of Namibia (curriculum development, teaching modules, strategic planning) to retain and graduate pharmacists able to support the HIV response. Lecturer costs have transitioned to the University. PLHIV and TB patients benefit from better HIV supply chains. Activities will be monitored and reported in collaboration with MOHSS. No vehicle will be purchased. Expenditure analysis outcomes were considered for this activity. REDACTED

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.
