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.

JHPIEGO is the prime partner for the Maternal and Child Health Integrated Program (MCHIP), USAID's flagship maternal, neonatal and child health (MNCH) program. JHPIEGO/MCHIP works to expand key MNCH services, including the integration of the prevention of HIV and treatment of HIV/AIDS, into appropriate health care services. Much of this work has been primarily through training and supportive supervision of providers. JHPIEGO/MCHIP uses a competency-based approach to improve the skills and knowledge of providers in evidence-based practices.
JHPIEGO/MCHIP will work with local partners to strengthen pre-service education at 14 midwifery schools to 1) improve the quality of PMTCT education and HIV, STI and AIDS care, and 2) to develop and strengthen practicum sites, one per school. Emphasis will be on a competency-based approach supported by learning guides, job aids and humanistic materials. All programs will include basic knowledge and skills to work with MARP.
Funding will be used to finance the portion of the work that will improve the quality of TC education (including $100,000 FY2008 funding)
With this financing, JHPIEGO will work with associations of people living with HIV and AIDS in order to ensure the relevancy of TC, and stigma and discriminations scenarios. It is anticipated that the involvement of these groups in the preparation of young health professionals will contribute substantially to the reduction of stigma and positive provider attitudes regarding the MARP.
