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.
The goal of the SIAPS program in Mozambique is to assure access to safe, efficacious, and quality pharmaceuticals products and effective pharmaceutical services that will contribute to the achievement of desired health outcomes. SIAPS will work towards achieving this goal using a systems-strengthening approach that focuses on improving governance, human resource capacity, use of strategic information for decision making and the delivery of services at the facility level within the public pharmaceutical sector, with special emphasis on strengthening the Pharmacy Department (PD) and the Department of Hospital Pharmacy (DFH) of the National Directorate for Medical Assistance. In FY14, SIAPS will provide technical guidance and tools to two pilot Drug and Therapeutic Committees (DTCs) in carrying out medicine use evaluations (MUE) of ARVs and drugs for opportunistic infections in order to identify problem areas and propose recommendations. SIAPS will support the DTCs in the two hospitals to strengthen the availability and use of strategic information for improved decision making in the pharmaceutical sector. Experiences and lessons gained from the various activities in the two hospitals will allow DFH/DNAM to consolidate the results and better practices and then generate wider policy recommendations regarding DTC support and roll-out of tools, data analysis and data use of ARVs to the provincial level. SIAPS will ensure country ownership by the Ministry of Health in the strengthening of the NDRA and DNAM/DFH to ensure that the activities implemented to strengthen pharmacy services under this project will be sustainable. No purchased/leased vehicles under this mechanism.
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.
