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: 2008
CDC is in the process of establishing a new agency presence in the DR, including opening a physical office.
CDC had anticipated directly hiring two professional LES staff, a Senior Laboratory Program Advisor and a
Strategic Information Coordinator, as part of the FY07 budget, however the late release of FY07 funds has
delayed this process to FY08 and the two positions remain vacant at this time. New for FY08, CDC plans
to create two positions (a driver and an adminsitrative assistant) to support CDC programs in the DR.
The Senior Laboratory Program Advisor will be funded through HLAB program funds and will provide expert
scientific and technical laboratory support to the USG PEPFAR DR country team; guide policy and
programs affecting the establishment and provision of public health and clinical laboratory services in
support of the PEPFAR-supported prevention, surveillance, treatment, and care programs in the DR;
provide TA on laboratory systems analysis and developmental planning, operational research, and
laboratory quality assurance; identify and develop appropriate infrastructure and resources necessary to
support local laboratory systems, evaluate laboratory programs and services, provide leadership in
developing scientific policy on laboratory practice for services and systems for HIV prevention, surveillance,
treatment, and care; and establish an M&E system for laboratory services.
The Strategic Information Coordinator will be funded through HVSI program funds and will oversee CDC's
DR program; plan, coordinate, monitor and evaluate project activities; assist GODR to develop and enhance
the HIV/AIDS strategic information system and its use for decision-making, focusing on quality surveillance
information, monitoring and evaluation, health management information systems and laboratory capacity;
provide in-country management assistance to GODR for PEPFAR-supported initiatives; represent the CDC
on the USG/DR PEPFAR team; monitor the CDC\DR country budget; oversee the technical and
administrative aspects of CDC's DR program; provide technical assistance for special studies; monitor CDC
staff; and support improvement of the PMTCT program, especially its M&E.
In addition, new for FY08 funds, CDC will be hiring administrative support by way of an Administrative
Assistant and a Driver. The Administrative Assistant will manage the logistics of operating the DR office,
provide basic office secretarial support, manage technical staff schedules; and handle small meeting
logistics. The Driver will maintain and operate the CDC vehicle, and drive CDC staff and visitors to and from
meetings and events. Although for FY07 and FY08 CDC has planned significant strategic information
activities, the vast majority of these activities are in furtherance of a two-year plan that will not be continued
in FY09 planning. Therefore, both the Administrative Assistant and the Driver will be funded through HLAB
program funds. Although CDC has no money planned for management and staffing, we included a zero
dollar entry in order to open space to include this activity narrative.
CDC has discussed its plans with the Embassy and has confirmed that it will incur no ICASS or other "cost
of doing business" expenses in the DR for FY08. Similarly, CDC has confirmed that there will be no
charges from CDC for computer support in the DR.
