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.
Years of mechanism: 2010
NOTE: The following is taken from summaries released by PEPFAR on the PEPFAR Data Dashboard. They are incomplete summary paragraphs only and do not contain the full mechanism details. When the full narratives are released, we will update the mechanism pages accordingly.
MCHIP is the leading national policy advisor for the MOH concerning an integrated comprehensive MNCH/RH package of services. MCHIP will support the MOH to address policies, guidelines and training health care workers in all aspects of an integrated MNCH/PMTCT approach, which ensures continuity with pediatric and adult HIV care and treatment packages. In addition, they will provide technical assistance to the MOH to print MNCH and PMTCT data recording tools, data reporting forms, and IEC materials.
MCHIP project was awarded in April 2011 and not a part of expenditure analysis. MCHIP will participate in the next phase of the expenditure analysis. MCHIP will be concentrating its technical capacity support at the central and provincial level to support the implementation of best practices across the continuum of care. A ceiling increase was requested for this project, based on expenditures and projections for the future, and based on the fact that costs are higher than originally anticipated, and that several key activities that are critical to achieving the project's SOW necessitate increased costs.
These key activities include the following: MMI minor repairs, PMTCT registers, Health Promotion, cervical cancer and Adolescent sexual, reproductive Health program. Short-term personnel support to the MOH to ensure the planning and integration of MCH/FP/HIV and cervical cancer. 11 vehicles were purchased for supervisory visits to health facilities and communities, as well as for transport of materials. For efficiency MCHIP will concentrate its efforts in 22 MMI sites to be accredited and adopted as learning facilities.
MCHIP has a PMP with quarterly reports. They work with MOH staff and conduct regular and intensive supervision and in job training.
Since COP2014, PEPFAR no longer produces narratives for every mechanism it funds. However, PEPFAR has now included performance targets or indicator information for each mechanism based on the Monitoring, Evaluation, and Reporting (MER) system. The MER guidance is available on PEPFAR's website https://www.pepfar.gov/reports/guidance/. Note that COP years 2014-2015 were under a previous version of the MER system and the indicators and definitions may have changed as of the new 2.0 guidance.
This mechanism has no published performance targets or indicators.
