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.
Until March 2016 HC3 will build capacity of GoE to fully manage, finance, and operate the AIDS Resource Center (ARC) in response to Ethiopia’s HIV epidemic, and in line with GHI principles. This transitioning process will include transfer of mass and small media, the Talkline, the regional resource centers, and capacity to support strategic behavior change communication (SBCC) programs. The process will also support adjustments in all of these ARC components to be responsive to the mixed epidemic context which requires a focus on HIV prevention among MARPs or core populations under PEPFAR Ethiopia. HC3 will work at the national level with FHAPCO to design, implement, and evaluate SBCC programs focusing on core populations in HIV hot spots across Ethiopia. The goal is to build the capacity of the GOE to provide technical leadership in SBCC; build capacity of SBCC professionals and institutions; and increase the practice of HIV preventive behaviors among core populations (CPs). Priority outcomes include prevention of new HIV infections and linkages to MARPS-friendly HIV services. HC3 will complement ongoing work of partner projects for cost efficiency. HC3 will work with MULU Prevention to ensure coordination between HC3 capacity building and MULU's town-level work with providers. HC3 will use a variety of approaches for M&E in compliance with USAID Evaluation Policy. HC3 will ensure that relevant PEPFAR indicators are addressed, and that indicators responsive to HC3’s Performance Monitoring Plan are included. Additional custom indicators will be determined in collaboration with USAID and HAPCO. This mechanism will receive additional funds of $ 492,298 from future proposed reprograming to meet its total spend amount of $1,300,000.
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.
This mechanism has no published performance targets or indicators.
