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: 2011
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.
The USAID Systems for Improved Access to Pharmaceuticals and Services (SIAPS) project implemented by Management Sciences for Health (MSH) supports the country to develop an efficient and effective national supply chain management system as a sustainable and cost-effective pathway to prevent stockouts of medicines and supplies for the national response to HIV. The project will provide TA at central, regional and site levels to ensure availability of inputs for HIV testing and treatment, and related programs, such as TB. The project will support the MOH to define, measure and ensure adherence to rational prescription practices to improve the quality of treatment. The project will support financial analysis, evidence-based prioritization, and resource mobilization to ensure that HIV and TB commodities are fully funded from national budgets. The project will support the development of the national laboratory sample referral network for HIV and TB. National training in pharmaceutical management and the national pooled procurement planning processes will be supported, to ensure effective forecasting of inputs for the national response and subsequent management of those inputs. During the first year (FY 2015), the project will continue support to consolidate the national supply chain management system to ensure sustainability, with TA reducing in the second year (FY 2016), as the national authorities develop sufficient capacity to implement the core operations of the system with more limited external TA.
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.
