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: 2008
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), National HIV/AIDS/STI/TB Council (NAC)
and other partners for HIV/AIDS and tuberculosis programs. With the rapid scale-up of PEPFAR activities
over the last four years, the staff and infrastructure of CDC-Zambia have continued to grow to support these
activities. At the end of Fiscal Year (FY) 2007 CDC-Zambia consisted of 42 individuals, and staffing is
projected to reach 49 by the end of FY 2008. CDC-Zambia has offices in four provinces throughout the
country (Lusaka, Southern, Western, and Eastern), and four office spaces within Lusaka (US Embassy,
Leased Agency Space, Chest Diseases Laboratory (CDL), and University Teaching Hospital (UTH). The
information technology needs of CDC-Zambia require that all staff members located at these various sites
be supported through appropriate hardware, software, and networking structures.
For FY 2009 CDC-Zambia will continue to purchase the required information technology support package
that CDC-Atlanta has designed. The CDC Information Technology Services Office (ITSO) in Atlanta has
established a support cost at each CDC Country Office for FY 2009 to cover the cost of Information
Technology Infrastructure Services and Support provided by ITSO. This includes the funding to provide
base level of connectivity for the primary CDC office located in each country and connecting them into the
CDC Global network, keeping the IT equipment located at these offices refreshed or updated on a regular
cycle, funds for expanding the ITSO Global Activities Team in Atlanta as well as fully implementing the
ITSO Regional Technology Services Executives in the field. This is a structured cost model that represents
what is considered as the "cost of doing business" for the country office.
The requested amount for FY 2009 is based on an 18% cost allocation for services in Zambia. This is a
percentage of the total requirement for the five designated Eastern and Southern African offices. It also
includes the estimated cost of internet connectivity and hardware and software requirements.
