The Systems for Improved Access to Pharmaceuticals and Services Program (SIAPS) is a five-year cooperative agreement managed centrally by the Health Systems Division of USAID and awarded in October 2011. SIAPS will assure the availability of quality pharmaceutical products and effective pharmaceutical services to achieve desired health outcomes consistent with the Global Health Initiative. SIAPS will continue to provide technical leadership and assistance in pharmaceutical system strengthening with a deliberate focus on patient-centered services and health outcomes. SIAPS results areas address the intersection between 5 components of the health system, namely governance, human resources, information, financing, service delivery and medical products to expand access to quality pharmaceutical products and effective pharmaceutical services. Expected outcomes according to the SIAPS results framework are: Pharmaceutical sector governance strengthened; Capacity of personnel for the provision of pharmaceutical services enhanced; Use of information for decision-making for pharmaceutical services improved; Financing mechanisms strengthened to increase access to medicines; Improved medical products availability; and, Improved rational use of medicine and patient safety.

SIAPS is committed to achieving these objectives by working closely with the National Department of Health (DoH), Provincial Departments of Health (PDOHs), PEPFAR partners and local organizations. SIAPS will use a health system-strengthening approach, build local capacity and develop strategic partnerships to achieve the program goal of strengthening the capacity of pharmaceutical systems at all levels. This goal supports the SAG’s priority health programs and initiatives to improve health outcomes

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.
