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.

Since July 2010, the Population Council has been implementing the COMPACT project. The goal is to develop and determine the feasibility of “community compacts” as an innovative approach to prevent HIV in Zambian communities in line with government’s goal of reducing new HIV infections by 50% by 2015. Community compacts are agreements between service providers and recipient communities aimed at increasing effectiveness of services. Communities identify HIV prevention targets and implement intervention to achieve those targets. We have developed a system of incentives to reward communities for reaching their targets. The rewards are for the community, not individuals, to further the goals and motivate the community.

Objectives are a) Work collaboratively in selected communities to develop community compacts for HIV prevention interventions; b)Transfer skills to communities by building capacity of community-based organizations (CBOs) to improve and expand their HIV prevention activities; c) Develop and implement measurement frameworks to track progress of community prevention activities. To measure results, COMPACT is using a sero-behavioral survey to measure changes in behavior and HIV.

COMPACT is in six communities; Chinyunyu and Nangwenya communities in Rufunsa district, Chongwe in Chongwe district, and Kawama, Kaniki, and Mushili in Ndola district. It targets to 36,888 people (15,143 men, 19,726 Women, 2,019 adolescent girls). In each community, COMPACT has a Community Compact Development Committee (CCDC), leaders that manage the compacts and supervises 15 community based organizations. The CCDC will transition to Community AIDS Task Forces under National AIDS Council.

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.
