PEPFAR's annual planning process is done either at the country (COP) or regional level (ROP).
PEPFAR's programs are implemented through implementing partners who apply for funding based on PEPFAR's published Requests for Applications.
Since 2010, PEPFAR COPs have grouped implementing partners according to an organizational type. We have retroactively applied these classifications to earlier years in the database as well.
Also called "Strategic Areas", these are general areas of HIV programming. Each program area has several corresponding budget codes.
Specific areas of HIV programming. Budget Codes are the lowest level of spending data available.
Expenditure Program Areas track general areas of PEPFAR expenditure.
Subdivisions of Program Areas, these track general higher level sub-classifications of expenditure.
Subdivisions of Major categories, these are the most detailed expenditure data.
Cross-cutting attributions are areas of PEPFAR programming that contribute across several program areas. They contain limited indicative information related to aspects such as human resources, health infrastructure, or key populations programming. However, they represent only a small proportion of the total funds that PEPFAR allocates through the COP process. Additionally, they have changed significantly over the years. As such, analysis and interpretation of these data should be approached carefully. Learn more
PEPFAR sets targets using the Monitoring, Evaluation, and Reporting (MER) System - documentation for which can be found on PEPFAR's website at https://www.pepfar.gov/reports/guidance/. As with most data on this website, the targets here have been extracted from the COP documents. Targets are for the fiscal year following each COP year, such that selecting 2016 will access targets for FY2017. This feature is currently experimental and should be used for exploratory purposes only at present.
Years of mechanism: 2012
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.
SIAPS will support central and provincial level to strengthen HIVcommodities security in Luanda, Bie and Benguela through training, supervision and catalytic TA. A PEPFAR funded analysis of the Angolan supply chain system (2012) identified the following gaps in the supply chain logistics management system for HIV/AIDS commodities: heavy legal and administrative procedures in public procurement, resulting in long lead times (months or years in some cases); weak warehouse and distribution management systems, especially in provincial facilities where inadequate transport and nonuse of pharmaceutical management tools are common; an overall weak LMIS for data collection, reporting and use for decision making; and insufficient human resource capacity development for pharmaceutical supply chain management. In COP 14, IM will provide TA and training to:INLS to revise long term forecasting and supply planning of all HIV/AIDS commodities; to national and provincial providers in pharmaceutical management through pre-and in-service training; to INLS to conduct more effective supportive supervision at provincial and site levels to improve pharmaceutical management; INLS and provincial authorities to develop shorter lead times through better planning, pre-qualification of suppliers and supplier performance monitoring; and to the National Directorate of Medicines and Equipment to assist in the design and implementation of a national supply chain strategy for sustained management of the HIV/AIDS supply chain.IM will also provide TA to the INLS network to improve LMIS to have more complete and quality data on consumption, stock levels, stock outs, pipelines,and remaining shelf life, and the use of reported information in HIV stock monitoring, forecasting and patient management.
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 https://www.pepfar.gov/reports/guidance/. 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.
