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.

Harvard University School of Public Health (HSPH) is an international partner that has supported comprehensive HIV prevention, care and treatment (C&T) services at 48 CTC, 200 PMTCT and 18 TB/HIV sites in Dar es Salaam since 2010. Over the past three years, HSPH has transitioned support of direct clinical care services responsibilities to MDH, a local grantee. Despite MDH making progress in supporting implementation of care and treatment services MDH continues to need TA from HSPH particularly on M&E and data management. HSPH’s role has now shifted to the provision of TA in order to support MDH-led adult and pediatric care, treatment, and PMTCT programs under the coordination of regional district authorities. HSPH TA to MDH is focused on improving data management, M&E, adult and pediatric ART training, pediatrics counselling and testing, and drug resistance monitoring. HSHP is leveraging PEPFAR resources to invest in key cross-cutting interventions that include Human Resources for Health and Nutrition. In COP FY 2014 HSPH will provide TA to MDH on the above mentioned program areas as well as on QI, grants management, and nutrition. HSPH assesses its work through routine reviews on project progress, program analyses, QI assessments, monthly team meetings, and quarterly and annual reporting. Supported activities are directly linked to implementation of the NMSF III, GHI and, the PF to promote greater program impact, sustainability and local ownership.

Harvard’s FY 2013 EA DSP UEs were reviewed and found to be comparable to similar partners; expenditures reported were in line with programmatic priorities and approved budgets. HSPH is a TA partner hence does not report on any indicator.

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.
