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: 2010
In support of a strong pediatric care and support program for HIV-exposed and infected children, the USG will strengthen PMTCT services by training health teams, increasing referrals to early infant detection (E.I.D.), train counselors to integrate E.I.D. information into post counseling sessions, and support NGOs, CBOs, and FBOs to link the community with hospital services and appropriate testing.
These organizations will also assist to identify mothers who do not return for tests results. Health teams in primary health clinics will be trained in early identification of HIV exposure and infection status, collaborate with NGOs, CBOs and FBOs in the provision of care at the community level, and provide wrap-around services to children and mothers (e.g., immunizations, reproductive health and family planning, TB testing and treatment).
USG/CDC will continue to give TA and financial support to the National Reference Lab to continue its excellent service on EID DNA PCR testing, increasing their capacity and reducing TAT, in behalf of reducing the initiation of care to HIV positive children
1. CDC will continue to provide TA and funding to assure that the molecular biology department at NRL is ready to offer DNA PCR testing, in a timely manner.
2. CDC will continue to fund EQA Program for EID testing, to assure quality results.
3. CDC will continue to work with MOH to strengthen sample collection, storage sample, transportation, diagnosis, results, and follow-up with care and treatment.
