This is an average of the three domain scores below.
The State Department received an 82.5 (B-) because it released new PEPFAR documents (including the FY 2017 Country Operational Plan Guidance), that moderately improved its policy score, and spends HIV and AIDS money in a way that is responsive to global need. However, it still maintains policies that have little effect on SRHR.
The State Department received a 90.8 (A-) for HIV and AIDS because newly-published PEPFAR policy documents moderately promoted the HIV and AIDS response, and the State Department spent HIV and AIDS money in a way that was responsive to global need.
The State Department received a 77.3 (C+) for Maternal and Child Health primarily because it has persistently low transparency in policy and funding data.
The State Department received a 79.4 (C+) for Family Planning because in spite of having funding that is responsive to family planning need, State Department policies in effect (like the State Department Implementation Plan for the National Action Plan on Women, Peace, and Security) have received only average scores.
