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.

Jhpiego is an international partner providing national-level TA support to the MOHSW to improve IPC practices in Tanzania. Specifically, Jhpiego focuses on strengthening the MOHSW’s capacity to manage IPC programs and address major contributors to hospital-acquired infections. In alignment with PF Goals 4 and 5 on commodity supply and human resources, Jhpiego will continue to provide TA to the MOHSW on IPC, injection safety, phlebotomy, occupational exposure to blood borne pathogens, and health care waste management (HCWM). Jhpiego will work with the MOHSW to ensure R/CHMTs are trained on IPC, injection safety and post-exposure prophylaxis (PEP) provision and that these areas are functioning well in all health facilities that provide HIV care and treatment services. In addition, Jhpiego will support the MOHSW to conduct supportive supervision and mentorship of R/CHMTs and hospitals as part of program M&E. The partner will work in collaboration with the MOHSW to ensure availability of high-quality IPC and injection safety commodities at the health facility level through site M&E. Jhpiego and the MOHSW will continue to implement a standards-based management and recognition approach as part of program and health facility evaluation. It is anticipated that this project will lead to measurable improvements in the overall quality of IPC in facilities, increased capacity of HCWs to consistently and correctly perform IPC practices, regular monitoring of IPC practices, institutionalization of appropriate HCWM systems, and reductions in stock-outs of essential IPC commodities. Jhpiego's activities are not measured with FY 2013 EA DSP UEs; however, expenditures reported were in line with programmatic priorities and approved budgets.

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.
