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.

"Cost of Doing Business" Assessment
The CDC Global AIDS Program (GAP) in Kenya is part of a Coordinating Country Office (CCO) that
supports multiple CDC programs in addition to PEPFAR. Beginning in FY 2008, all programs in Kenya will
be subject to a cost-sharing assessment to equitably distribute infrastructure costs. These infrastructure
costs include utilities and maintenance, staff costs for core administrative, finance and motor pool staff, and
support for the Director and Deputy Director of the Kisumu Field Station. Being part of a CCO is
advantageous to PEPFAR since it allows us to leverage resources, infrastructure and programs supported
by other CDC funds.
CDC has also established additional cost-sharing assessments for global support services previously
provided at no cost to field operations. The ITSO Global Support assessment covers the cost of technical
support, software licenses, internet connectivity and periodic equipment replacement. The Global Business
Services assessment covers the cost of human resources and workforce development support at
headquarters. These services are advantageous to PEPFAR since centralized procurement of equipment
and IT services is much less expensive than local purchase.
