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 goal of the collaboration between PCI and the MDF is to enhance the capacity of Malawis military leadership in leading the response towards reduced HIV prevalence among MDF personnel and their families. The objectives are:
? To engage and strengthen MDF leadership in response to HIV programming, including strategic planning, implementation, monitoring and evaluation focusing on Battalion and Company Commanders, Military Chaplains, and other key actors
? To provide technical assistance to the MAMHS HIV & AIDS Program Unit and existing HIV prevention team members, on a range of HIV technical areas.
? To promote information sharing and learning on comprehensive HIV & AIDS programming between the Malawian and Zambian Defense Forces;
DHAPP promotes MDF ownership and leadership through strategic capacity building of human resources for a sustainable program. DHAPP adheres to Malawis National Action Framework and the PEPFAR country strategy and GHI Partnership Framework. Through partnerships with government, other organizations and the private sector resources will be leveraged to ensure cost efficiency and sustainability. The program will ensure strict adherence to gender considerations through gender analysis and monitoring of appropriate gender indicators. The program will be implemented in 12 MDF units across Malawi and targets 30,000 soldiers and their families including the surrounding civilian populations. Joint MDF/PCI teams will monitor activities and conduct periodic data quality audits to enhance data quality. New approaches for BCC and peer education will be introduced to make behavior change communication more effective. 1 vehicle is include for support ot moblie VCT activities
Jhpiego will support MDF facilities in the implementation of this project through capacity building, system strengthening, VMMC promotional activities, training of providers, provision of VMMC services, and standardized, supportive supervision to ensure quality of services. Jhpiego uses a competency-based training approach, which will provide the MDF with health care providers who have the knowledge, skills and attitudes to adequately provide high-quality clinical VMMC services. Jhpiego will work closely with MDF and partners, primarily Project Concern International (PCI), in supporting the STI and HIV counseling and testing (HCT) programs to ensure that the minimum package for VMMC services is fulfilled, as well as to ensure that referrals from HCT/STI clinics to VMMC services are strengthened, and vice versa. DOD, PCI and Jhpiego have an agreement that mandates PCI to do all the communications and demand creation for the VMMC program. Jhpiego will also ensure that the trained providers will have the necessary supervision and coaching needed to establish services. Jhpiego will then build the capacity of selected providers and develop them to become trainers, thus enabling the MDF to sustainably address its own human resource needs in the future. Jhpiego will also implement proven monitoring and evaluation methods to ensure timely and accurate reporting and provide data for decision-making. Under Phase 1, Jhpiego will work with MDF and DOD to develop a comprehensive VMMC scale up plan to circumcise 5000 men in MDF clinics. The first six months will focus on developing a comprehensive plan, conducting site assessments, and orienting staff at five barracks to VMMC. The second six months will focus on equipping and strengthening five VMMC static sites; training clinicians in safe clinical VMMC, nurses in post-operative VMMC service, and HTC counselors in VMMC counseling; adapting communication materials to raise awareness; generating demand; and conducting one intensive VMMC campaign. Under Phase 2, Jhpiego will continue to provide technical support through mentoring and supportive supervision to the 5 barracks serving as static sites from phase 1 and add 3 additional barracks to these static sites. More clinicians and nurses will be trained in safe clinical VMMC and post-operative VMMC service and HTC counselors in VMMC counseling. The project will conduct 3 intensive campaigns. The target is to have 1500 VMMCs performed in MDF clinics. Under Phase 3, Jhpiego will continue to provide technical support through mentoring and supportive supervision to 8 barracks serving as static sites. The project will also oversee 2 intensive campaigns, with a target of 3500 VMMCs.
