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: 2013
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.
USAID will provide technical assistance to the Ministry of Health (MOH) and local Non-Governmental Organizations (NGOs) through the Leadership Management and Governance Project (LMG) in organizational capacity building to provide services to key populations such as Sex Workers, Men who have Sex with other Men and Garifuna population in five prioritized regions: Tegucigalpa, San Pedro Sula, Puerto Cortes, Atlántida and Bay Island. The goals of this project are: 1) to develop organizational capacity within the MOH to establish and carry out effective funding mechanisms and improve management and stewardship of local non-governmental organizations (NGOs) to provide HIV prevention services; and (2) to build organizational capacity within local NGOs to support the implementation of evidence based, quality HIV prevention services for key populations in compliance with the new MOH funding mechanisms.
LMG will contribute to the Partnership Framework goals, through continuing providing TA to strengthening: a)the capacity in management, b)synergies between the MOH and NGOs to implement decentralize contracts to provide prevention services for KP; c)the capacity of the MOH to implement a plan to progressively, transition the HIV grants to national funds d) implementation of a new funding result base model and e) the inclusion of gender as a cross-cutting theme in activities, and f)monitoring and evaluation processes. This effort will lay the foundation for a long-term funding relationship between the MOH and civil society organizations to ensure the sustainability of critical HIV prevention services in country.LMG works in an environment in which prevention activities are traditionally funded by external funds, lack coordination among NGOs and the MOH, and a lack of experien
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.
