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: 2012
NOTE: The following is taken from summaries released by PEPFAR on the PEPFAR Data Dashboard. They are incomplete summary paragraphs only and do not contain the full mechanism details. When the full narratives are released, we will update the mechanism pages accordingly.
Jhpiego will continue to strengthen and expand the capacity of provincial and district level managers to train and mentor health care providers with emphasis on implementation of consolidated guidelines including the PMTCT Option B+ using the already existing Maternal neonatal and child Health (MNCH) platform. Jhpiego, in collaboration with partners such as CIDRZ and CARE International will train 100 health care providers from facilities which provide PMTCT in the 8 districts in the province in the Consolidated guidelines. 120 providers out of the 307 midwives and clinical officers in the province have been trained previously. The province has a total number of 1,307 frontline health care workers most of whom need training. The e-learning training package to be developed in FY 13 through another CDC funded program will be used to provide self-directed learning and knowledge assessments and to conduct training in the consolidated guidelines. The training will include knowledge and skills building on couples counseling, FANC (including STI screening, HIV retesting among HIV negative women and linkages to VMMC for negative male partners), EmONC, FP, EPI and Early Infant Diagnosis (EID). With regard to EID, providers will be trained on all services ranging from DBS collection, timely transportation and follow-up, data management, mother baby follow-up, quality improvement and linkage to other support services. This will be followed up by on site mentorship by experienced trainers from model sites to enhance the transfer of skills and reinforcement of the knowledge and skills in the implementation of the consolidated guidelines as well as quality improvement (QI). Mentorship will be conducted by Jhpiego staff, partners, provincial and district mentors, who will continue
Since COP2014, PEPFAR no longer produces narratives for every mechanism it funds. However, PEPFAR has now included performance targets or indicator information for each mechanism based on the Monitoring, Evaluation, and Reporting (MER) system. The MER guidance is available on PEPFAR's website https://www.pepfar.gov/reports/guidance/. Note that COP years 2014-2015 were under a previous version of the MER system and the indicators and definitions may have changed as of the new 2.0 guidance.
This mechanism has no published performance targets or indicators.
