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 Global Fund to Fight AIDS, Tuberculosis and Malaria (GFATM) currently supports HIV care and support activities in India under the Round 4 Rolling Continuation Channel (RCC) Grant, implemented by the Population Foundation of India (PFI). In June 2012, PFI resigned as the Principal Recipient (PR), effective as of the start of the RCC Phase 2 period on April 1, 2013. The Country Coordinating Mechanism (CCM) nominated the India HIV/AIDS Alliance as the new PR for the grant as of that same date. Between January and March 2013, the Global Fund and the CCM will oversee a PR transfer aimed at transferring activities with minimal disruptions to implementation. Given that Round 4 RCC funding will not be available to the India HIV/AIDS Alliance until April 1, 2013, the Global Fund Portfolio Manager exceptionally requested that PEPFAR consider providing support for a well-defined set of transitional activities in the quarter prior to this start date, during January-March 2013.
The goal of this three-month project is to support the smooth transition of crucial services under the Global Fund Round 4 RCC Grant, by funding preparatory activities of the India HIV/AIDS Alliance that will ensure the continuity of project activities at the state and district level. Under the RCC Phase 2 Grant, the India HIV/AIDS Alliance plans to establish and operate 350 Care and Support Centers that provide services to people living with HIV (PLHIV), as well as effective referral and linkages with medical, nutrition, social, economic and welfare services. This activity supports Goals 3 and 4 of the PEPFAR India country strategy (Building on Country Leadership and Commitment; and Health System Strengthening).
This time-limited investment will fund three major activities in the period January-March 2013. These activities, implemented at the state and district level, are designed to support the smooth transition of Global Fund Principal Recipients and the crucial care and support services they are mandated to provide.
Activity 1: Conduct a series of community consultations with current Sub Recipients, Sub-Sub Recipients and People Living with HIV (PLHIV) networks
The consultations with PLHIV networks across the states will be an important initial activity of the project, as the care and support services revolve around this target group. The state and district level consultations will reinforce the Greater Involvement of PLHIV (GIPA) principles.
Activity 2: Conduct an objective assessment and selection process of 20 Sub Recipients and 225 Sub-Sub Recipients
Capacity assessment of the Sub Recipients will be done using NGO Capacity Analysis Tools to identify the key strengths and areas for improvement of each of the selected Sub Recipients in the areas of technical skills, program management and financial management.
Activity 3: Conduct an orientation workshop for Sub Recipients on the operationalization of Care and Support Centers across 225 districts
The orientation workshops will be conducted to familiarize the Sub Recipients on the key functions of the Care and Support Centers and to ensure smooth functioning of these centers, including well-established tracking systems to refer PLHIV for need-based services.
