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.
Summary: With Fiscal Year (FY) 2009 funding, CDC will continue to strengthen the system of HIV care and
treatment in Haiti by focusing on assisting the Ministry of Health (MOH) and stakeholders, to plan,
coordinate and supervise different QA/QI programs. This activity will build on CDC's efforts to hire care and
treatment and information technology (IT) regional specialists. This activity will also add to the MOH's efforts
to provide human resources and logistic support to reinforce departmental directorates for better
coordination and supervision at the departmental level. Allocated resources will be used to hire CDC
regional specialists, as well as to cover logistic costs and per diem for their travel and participation in
training (both within and outside of the country).
As the treatment program is expanded, the United States Government (USG) is reinforcing coordination,
supervision and QA/QI at all levels. Resources are given to the MOH departmental directorates to build a
team that could oversee and supervise the treatment program at the departmental level. Regional hospitals
are being reinforced with mobile teams that the USG expects to become the technical arm of the
departmental directorates in mentoring and supervising peripheral sites. In addition, HIVQUAL has provided
resources to work with the MOH to launch a standard national system of QA/QI with adequate tools to
collect data and ensure continued improvement in the provision of treatment services. CDC will reinforce, at
the departmental level, the technical capacity for coordination, training, and mentoring particularly in the
regional public departmental hospitals which suffer from serious lack of human resources.
So far, three physicians, specialized in internal medicine, have been hired to fill the care and treatment
specialist positions in three departments (South, Grand'Anse and South East) working under the
supervision of the CDC/Haiti care and treatment specialist. These regional specialists have been very active
in making rounds within the internal medicine and infectious disease units of HIV care at the departmental
hospitals. They are providing technical support (hands on training and supervision) to expand care and
treatment to satellite sites and are working with the departmental staff to coordinate the program. As the
QA/QI program is rolled out through HIVQUAL, these specialists will play an important role in its
implementation. Treatment program funds have been used to support the costs of in-country travel for these
specialists. Funds have also been used to support training costs outside of the country as well.
With FY 2009 resources, three new treatment regional specialists will be hired and based in three additional
departments: North, Artibonite and North West. The resources planned through this activity narrative will be
used to cover salaries of the six regional specialists as well as their travel costs for supervising and
participating in training in and outside of the country for continuing education purposes. Part of these
resources will be used also to cover travel costs for health professionals from the MOH and other partners
who will be invited to participate in PEPFAR's international gatherings.
