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.

In COP13, PEPFAR Vietnam supported the Ministry of Health, through the Maternal and Child Health Integrated Program (MCHIP), to complete the second phase of a two-phase activity to build the Government of Vietnam’s (GVN) capacity in the prevention of mother to child transmission (PMTCT) within the GVN's HIV/AIDS and Maternal and Child Health (MCH) systems. With PEPFAR funding, the MCHIP project implemented in Vietnam by Save the Children, has developed and implemented National Guidelines on Neonatal and Child Care for HIV exposed infants and infected children. Two main activities were planned and implemented: (1) development of national guidelines in FY2012, and (2) development of training materials and conducting ToT training in FY2013. The integration of PMTCT into the MCH system is a key priority for PEPFAR to ensure sustainability of this activity through routine antenatal care for pregnant women. The project will end in September 2014, and no new funding is requested in COP14.

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.
