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: 2013
The goal of this activity is to support the NTLP to improve case detection and treatment success rates through support to selected districts. The specific objectives include: enhancing leadership and technical capacity of NTLP to guide TB control efforts; Enable the NTLP to implement innovative DOTS interventions in Kampala; improve coordination of TB and TB-HIV activities; and strengthen MDR TB treatment in Uganda.
This activity will provide technical support to the national level and implement activities in the Kampala district. It will contribute to GHI Principle 3 Build sustainability through health systems strengthening
Three critical staff positions that will be supported through this program will be transitioned to Government support by year two of the program. Additionally the technical assistance provided will build capacity of the NTLP to plan, manage and monitor implementation of TB activities countrywide.
The activity will develop a performance management plan but will use national tools for the collection and reporting of data. The program will contribute to national level TB indicators for Kampala.
Two vehicles will be purchased through the life of this mechanism using COP FY 2012 funds.
New vehicle justification these vehicles will be used to support nationwide activities and provision of technical assistance to the USAID district based TB-HIV programs in the different parts of the country
A Performance Management Plan will be developed to track the performance towards monitoring the achievement of the project objective.
This activity will primarily implement activities within the Kampala district and provide technical assistance to the National TB program centrally.
This activity will contribute to the achievement of National and USAID Uganda TB control targets of 70% Case Detection Rate (CDR) and 80% Treatment Success Rate (TSR) building on achievements of the TBCAP, TBCARE 1 and other on-going projects supporting USAID funded TB activities in Uganda. The program will provide targeted technical assistance (TA) to the National Tuberculosis and Leprosy Control Program (NTLP) for the achievement of the above targets and provide TA to on-going USAID TB-HIV programs for the implementation of cohesive TB-HIV and DOTS interventions under the guidance of the NTLP. In addition it will support the implementation of DOTS within Kampala district, which contributes 20% to the annual TB cases reported nationally.
This activity will enhance leadership and technical capacity of the NTLP to effectively guide and manage the implementation of TB control activities at national and district level. This will be through TA support for joint planning and implementation, introducing quality improvement approaches to TB care, temporary support for key staff positions critical for NTLP functioning, and TA for the development and revision of national TB-HIV guidelines. This program will also support the coordination of all USG TB-HIV activities to ensure harmonized implementation.
TA provided through this mechanism will strengthen the NTLPs capacity to initiate and implement a quality Multi Drug Resistant (MDR) TB treatment program including support for MDR diagnosis, MDR drug quantification and procurement planning, health worker training, community follow up and M&E tools development.
This program will be implemented in support of NTLP priorities and with the goal of improving NTLP capacity for more effective planning, implementation and monitoring of activities countrywide including other non USAID districts.
Support will be provided under this activity for the recruitment of up to three critical staff at the NTLP who will be transitioned to government of Uganda support by year two of the program. Additionally health worker in service training for the management of MDR TB will be a part of this program.
