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.
ESIS (Epidemiology and Strategic Information Services) is a central multi-country CDC IDIQ contract (the three preapproved TA providers are listed in this IM as possible sub-partners).The contract provides TA, capacity building and support for CDC-funded international activities in a range of strategic information systems, methods, and activities including monitoring and evaluation; health economics and finance; surveillance/surveys, statistics, modeling, and epidemiologic investigations; and health information systems. In Ukraine, ESIS is used for capacity building in SI, with an initial focus on M&E. Specific trainings are informed by a FY11 M&E assessment.The target population for these activities is GOU HIV M&E staff and NGO M&E staff specialists from NGOs. Capacity building efforts involve both national and regional staff and institutions. Task orders to date have included support to the Ukrainian AIDS Center in the development of GF M&E processes and in training on data collection, analysis, and dissemination. The activities will contribute to the sustainability of M&E systems, the success of the GF grant, and to improving the GOu's overall approach to decisionmaking by strengthening the availability of high quality data and the practice of using it.
Each task order under this contract incorporates specific indicators for monitoring and assessing performance.
The ESIS contract would contribute to the achievement of all three of the goals of Ukraines Partnership Framework goals: directly to goal 2 (improved quality and cost effectiveness of HIV prevention, care, and treatment services for MARPs) and indirectly to goals 1 of (reduction of HIV transmission among MARPs) and 3 (strengthened national and local ability to achieve National AIDS Program objectives).
Activities planned for FY12 will build upon results achieved with the previous years' funding. The proposed activities within this mechanism include additional trainings for national and regional M&E staff of the AIDS centers in data managment and analysis and the use of data for decision making and program enhancement. The impact of the trainings on routine practices will be a subject of a separate assessment under this contract in a subsequent fiscal year. Activities under this contract will perform a catalytic role for implementation of the GF Rd10 grant by the Ukrainian AIDS Center and Oblast AIDS Centers, and facilitate further development and implementation of the National M&E Plan.
Other mechanisms covering the SI area will focus on different topics.
All planned activities have been and will be coordinated with the National M&E working group to ensure compliance with the National M&E Plan for HIV and avoid overlap with the work of other stakeholders.
