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.
MSH works with CDC to strengthen performance of CDC-supported local partners and to solidify their ability to deliver high impact and sustainable services to respond to the HIV and AIDS epidemic in Tanzania. In line with the PF, MSH will strengthen various aspects of GOT agency leadership and management, organizational systems and structures, accountability and governance, human resources, project management, grants management and reporting, and evidence-based and strategic decision-making. MSH supports the first two goals of PEPFAR’s Partnership Framework. As a capacity building mechanism, MSH conducts similar strengthening activities across different budget codes. The project covers both Zanzibar (ZACP) and mainland working primarily with the NBTS, MOHSW’s Diagnostic Service Section (DSS), NACP, and NTLP, and NIMR. Its strategy for becoming more cost efficient over time includes the use of coaching and mentoring in capacity building interventions while utilizing a network of local consultants as needed. The transition to a partner government requires work with the partner institutions through established Change Agent Teams (CATs) to plan and execute activities. The CAT is made up of members from the partner institutions whose role is to spearhead the changes within those institutions. The project has outcome indicators associated with each objective that are tracked via quarterly and annual reports which provide a summary of planned and achieved outputs. For each institutional capacity assessment, tools compare baseline and post intervention status.
MSH activities are not measured with FY 2013 EA DSP UEs; however, expenditures reported were in line with programmatic priorities and approved budgets.
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.
