In the new issue of Px Wire, AVAC gives our take on this year’s PEPFAR process for establishing the Country Operational Plans (COPs). These plans define what work will be done with PEPFAR money at the country level and how that work will be evaluated in each of the 63 countries that receive PEPFAR money.
The process has changed considerably since last year, allowing for deeper insights into what’s working and what’s not. In this issue, AVAC takes you through the good and bad of PEPFAR’s emphasis on index testing, analyzes crucial gaps in combination prevention, and lays out a series of questions to shape a powerful agenda for advocacy.
This issue’s centerspread takes a closer look at Zimbabwe’s data, and highlights amfAR’s detailed country factsheets that draw from PEPFAR’s giant data sets. Additional tools and information on influencing the COPs process are available from COMPASS partner Health GAP’s PEPFAR Watch.
