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 After prolonged negotiations with the HIV/AIDS Unit and the Ministry of Health, it has been decided that the SPS project will focus on building technical capacity related to PMTCT relative to the rational use of medicines and create tools that will assist clinical and management staff to better track and report on PMTCT commodities. The TA provided will not to be limited to PMTCT/ARV drugs only, but rather the focus is to provide technical assistance to create an integrated pharmaceutical supply and rational use/dispensing system. To the extent feasible, some support would be linked to on-going SPS work under malaria medicines supported by PMI. Finally, support to strengthen MOH pharmaceuticals department will be provided as they transition into a directorate, which is critical part of a long term system strengthening and institution capacity development that will have a broader impact on the pharmaceutical sector in Malawi. Both in a short and long term, this support would serve the interest of HIV/AIDS unit and other public health programs. Background With FY 2008 PEPFAR funding, MSH/SPS supported the MOH scale up plans for counseling and testing, ART, and PMTCT services by facilitating the integration of HIV/AIDS medicines into the general supply chain to improve overall pharmaceutical management for HIV/AIDS programs. Current support in pharmaceutical management addresses each HIV/AIDS area individually and there is need to consolidate
these efforts under the umbrella of the National Drug Policy in terms of drug selection, procurement, distribution, and rational use. The procurement of all medicines and medical supplies in Malawi is done in accordance with the Malawi National Drug List and the Essential Health Package. The National Drug Committee is charged with the responsibility of selecting drugs and reviewing the Essential drug list and standard treatment guidelines (STG). MSH/SPS will work with the MOH to update the Malawi Essential Drug List as well as STG with HIV/AIDS medicines, to provide a facilitative policy environment for HIV/AIDS commodities integration into routine supply chain systems, and their rational use at facility levels. MSH/SPS will continue to work closely with the DELIVER Project and the MOH (the new HIV/AIDS M and E unit) to ensure a seamless complementarity of assistance and training between the two projects. This activity focuses on pharmaceutical management and rational drug use while the JSI - Deliver project focus is on logistics and information systems.
