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.

CDC technical assistance is required by the Ministry of Health for the Sustainable Management for Development Program (SMDP) and the Field Epidemiology Training Program (FETP) in order to bolster MOH management and epidemiology skills set within the country.
In FY 2011 CDC provided technical and financial assistance to the School of Medicine to establish the Management for Public Health (MfPH) course with the Department of Public Health. This course is modeled after the Management for Improved Public Health (MIPH) course offered by the Sustainable Management for Development Program (SMDP) offered by the Division of Workforce Development. The program was developed following intensive consultations with the Ministry of Health, the School of Medicine and other stakeholders to determine the need for management training among public health professionals. A Steering Committee chaired by an alumnus of the MIPH program guided the development of the program that resulted in 30 students successfully completing the first phase of the course with 27 of these being District Directors of Health from mainly remote rural districts. The participants are undertaking their applied field learning projects that would be presented during the second phase of the training to be held in the spring of 2012. In FY2012 CDC Zambia with technical input from SMDP will provide support for the further development of the program with the aim of adapting the training materials to the meet the needs of Zambia and to offer a second course to 30 participants that would be determined in close collaboration with the Ministry of Health.
In FY2012 CDC will provide technical assistance to the Ministry of Health for the development of the Field Epidemiology Training Program (FETP) that is patterned on the Epidemiology Intelligence System (EIS) training program. The development of the program will be guided by a Steering Committee that will be chaired by the Ministry of Health and that will include all relevant stakeholders such as the training institutions and other relevant government ministries. Activities to be undertaken include curriculum development, a multi-year strategy document, identifying program staff and required resources and holding of short courses. A Resident Advisor will be assigned to work with the Ministry of Health and other relevant organizations in the development of the program with the goal of enrolling the first batch of students in FY2013.
