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.

salaries and benefits of technical and programmatic staff are assigned to the appropriate program area
within the Emergency Plan categories, but their management and support costs are included under this
activity. The Country Director is 40% assigned to other policy/capacity building, and 60% management and
staffing. The Deputy Director of Operations and the ASPH fellows are 100% assigned to management and
staffing. Of the $1,500,000 Management and Staffing budget, $287,896.00 will go to ICASS and $47,001.00
to Security Cost Sharing.
Being located in the Ministry of Health and Social Services, the HHS/CDC office provides direct logistical
and material support to the Directorate's daily programmatic operations and to ART sites in the regions.
Operations costs outside of human resources include information technology and digital videoconferencing
facilities; telecommunications; photocopying and materials production; printing of guidelines, reports,
training curricula, and HMIS records; office consumables; utilities; office maintenance and equipment;
security; staff training; field, conference, and meeting travel; and other daily operations costs.
As of FY07, a major accomplishment has been to have programmed more than 85% of HHS/CDC-managed
funds to go directly to a Namibian organization. From this office, the deputy director of operations, office
manager/financial analyst, and ASPH fellows liaise with the Program and Grants Office at CDC-Atlanta and
provide direct financial management support to counterparts in these Namibian organizations receiving
direct USG funding under Cooperative Agreements. These organizations include the Ministry of Health and
Social Services, Namibia Institute of Pathology, Potentia Namibia Recruitment Consultancy, and
Development Aid People to People. In addition to the US Embassy procurement and financial management
staff, the deputy director of operations also works closely with the facility planning unit in the MoHSS on
renovations at ART/PMTCT sites that are contracted under the Regional Procurement and Services Office
(RPSO) in Frankfurt.
This activity leverages resources with the European Commission which provides technical advisors to
increase capacity of the Directorate and Regional AIDS Coordination Committees; with the Global Fund
which provides funding for technical officers in counseling and testing, PMTCT, and ART/care in the
Directorate; with the UK's Voluntary Service Organization which provides an accountant to the Directorate's
resource management office; and with the Ministry of Health and Social Services.
