Jhpiego will continue to strengthen and expand the capacity of provincial and district level managers to train and mentor health care providers with emphasis on implementation of consolidated guidelines including the PMTCT Option B+ using the already existing Maternal neonatal and child Health (MNCH) platform. Jhpiego, in collaboration with partners such as CIDRZ and CARE International will train 100 health care providers from facilities which provide PMTCT in the 8 districts in the province in the Consolidated guidelines. 120 providers out of the 307 midwives and clinical officers in the province have been trained previously. The province has a total number of 1,307 frontline health care workers most of whom need training. The e-learning training package to be developed in FY 13 through another CDC funded program will be used to provide self-directed learning and knowledge assessments and to conduct training in the consolidated guidelines. The training will include knowledge and skills building on couples counseling, FANC (including STI screening, HIV retesting among HIV negative women and linkages to VMMC for negative male partners), EmONC, FP, EPI and Early Infant Diagnosis (EID). With regard to EID, providers will be trained on all services ranging from DBS collection, timely transportation and follow-up, data management, mother baby follow-up, quality improvement and linkage to other support services. This will be followed up by on site mentorship by experienced trainers from model sites to enhance the transfer of skills and reinforcement of the knowledge and skills in the implementation of the consolidated guidelines as well as quality improvement (QI). Mentorship will be conducted by Jhpiego staff, partners, provincial and district mentors, who will continue

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.
