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 management and staffing budget for CDC is used to provide technical oversight and technical
assistance for the conduct of PEPFAR-related activities by the Thai Ministry of Public Health (MOPH), its
provincial health offices, the Bangkok Metropolitan Administration (BMA), and partner NGOs. A team of 43
personnel engaged full-time at CDC/Thailand carries out this support. The 43 positions include 4 direct-hire
U.S. staff, 37 locally hired staff, and two locally hired expatriate contractors. Of the direct hires, one is in a
technical leadership/management position, two are in a technical advisor/non-M&S staff position, and one is
in a technical advisor/program manager position. Of the locally hired staff, five are in technical
leadership/management positions, 24 are in technical advisor/non-M&S staff positions, three are in
technical advisor/program manager positions, and five are administrative/support staff. The two contractors
are in technical advisor/non-M&S staff positions. Additionally, seven non-PEPFAR funded personnel from
the CDC TB Program provide 30% to 50% of their time supporting GAP activities.
Activities carried out by these staff are:
•Technical oversight and technical assistance for project design, implementation, and evaluation, working
collaboratively with partners primarily in the Thai government and to a lesser extent in collaborating NGOs,
in the areas of PMTCT, Other Prevention, Palliative Care (basic health care and TB), VCT, ARV Services,
Laboratory Infrastructure, Policy and Systems Strengthening, and Strategic Information
•Capacity building for government and NGO staff, within the context of specific projects or to meet specific
objectives of the National AIDS Plan
•Project management, including reporting and financial oversight, for all collaborative projects with the Thai
•Coordinating PEPFAR Thailand strategy and planning with the MOPH and BMA to ensure that PEPFAR
Thailand contributions address priority areas and gaps within existing programs, and to ensure that
PEPFAR Thailand support will lead to strengthened, sustainable programs within the government systems
•Liaising and coordinating with other USG agencies (USAID and DoD/AFRIMS) on the PEPFAR Thailand
•Preparing strategic and operational plans and reporting results for OGAC
•Representing CDC and USG at coordination meetings with other donors, on the CCM, and on multiple
technical working groups of the MOPH.
•Technical assistance and training for PEPFAR programs in other countries, especially Vietnam and
Cambodia, in the areas of PMTCT, Palliative Care: TB/HIV, ARV Services, and Laboratory Infrastructure.

"Cost of Doing Business" Assessment
The cost of doing business associated with the 3 FTEs described in the CDC management and staff entry
includes ICASS and Capital Security Cost Sharing charges, as follows:
ICASS costs are $2,456
CSCS charges are $2,133
The actual costs to support the entire 43 personnel are estimated to be:
ICASS costs are $35,082
CSCS costs are $34,070
These costs are spread across the program areas, according to percentage of staff working in each
