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.

The JHU Behavior Change Support Project (BCS) project, implemented by the Center for Communication Programs is a four-year project supporting the communication needs of the entire USAID Health, Population and Nutrition Office portfolio. The Project invests in specific campaigns, and its work focuses on both health providers and communities.
Sub-grantee EXP Momentum specializes in social marketing activities, both for MARP and to mature the Ghanaian commodity market, by providing mid-range products that can be sold at or close to cost-prize. EXP is specialized in 'bar-activation', promoting condoms and lubricant at hot-spots (e.g., bars).
Funding will be used to review/analyze the need for additional HIV prevention materials for MARPs and work with implementing partners to ensure their availability to target populations.
Funding will be used by sub-grantees EXP Momentum for the distribution of condoms and lubricant, though two pathways. The first is peer educators establishing outlets in their communities. Peer educators working with FSW, their clients and NPP and MSM will also distribute condom and lubricants. All PLHIV groups will distribute condoms through peers, too. A second pathway is the commercial market. Through multiple large wholesalers, USAID will focus on the mature segment of the condom market, selling commodities at a cost-recovery price.
The JHU BCS Project will develop client-provider materials that can be used in PMTCT centers with a focus on HIV positive mothers. Two sets of manuals will be prepared. One to inform HIV positive mothers of all issues surrounding pregnancy and delivery, such as options for ART and use of malaria prophylaxis and cotrimoxizole; and a second set that will focus on issues related to prophylaxis, delivery and post-delivery issues such as HIV TC and breastfeeding options. The first set will be developed and reproduced with FY2010 funding. The present funding is for the development and reproduction of the second set.
