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: 2007
Since 2001 CDC has operated in Zambia under the Global AIDS Program (GAP), primarily providing technical and logistical support to the Ministry of Health (MOH) and other national institutions for HIV/AIDS and tuberculosis programs. With the rapid scale up of PEPFAR activities over the last three years, the staff and infrastructure of CDC-Zambia have continued to grow to support these activities. As a result the amount paid to share quality administrative services under International Cooperative Administrative Support Services (ICASS) has steadily risen. At the end of FY 2006 CDC-Zambia consisted of 38 individuals, including 11 support staff and 27 technical staff comprised of four United States Direct Hires, four contract positions, and 19 Foreign Service Nationals (FSNs). The total staff on the ground is significantly higher (+17) than when the FY 2006 ICASS counts were actually made. The total staffing of CDC-Zambia will be brought to 48 in FY 2007. In addition to staffing increases, CDC's ICASS charges associated with Financial Management and Procurement have continued to increased, with the highest number of "strip code" charges in Financial Management at post.
