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.
Expenditure Sub-Program Areas track more specific PEPFAR expenditures.
Object classes provide highly specific ways that implementing partners are spending PEPFAR funds on programming.
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
Beneficiary Expenditure data identify how PEPFAR programming is targeted at reaching different populations.
Sub-Beneficiary Expenditure data highlight more specific populations targeted for HIV prevention and treatment interventions.
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.
Goals and Objectives:
The Marang Child Care Network Trust has a membership of 72 community-based organizations serving OVC in Botswana. The main purpose of Marang is to strengthen the organizational, management and technical capacity of its members. Marang works to equip partner organizations with relevant skills and capacities in OVC programming.
Linkage to Partnership Framework goals:
The Marang Childcare Network has a linkage with the Partnership Framework goal 2 "To increase the GOB, civil society and private sector ability to sustain high quality, cost effective HIV and AIDS services". Marang childcare network does through providing a series of capacity building programs to OVC providers (NGOs/CBOs/FBOs) to develop their capacities.
Geographic coverage and target population:
Marang Childcare Network has a wide coverage over the country. It has a membership of 72 which works to provide quality OVC services at the grassroots level.
Implementing mechanism's cross-cutting programs and key issues:
Their activities are being funded through the pipeline, they do not require additional funding this year.
Monitoring and Evaluation plans:A Monitoring and Evaluation person who reports to Health Policy Initiative on a quarterly basis is in place. The M & E person reports on relevant targets derived from the NGI Indicator's document. Health Policy Initiative in turn reports to USAID. HPI has provided support to the Nurse Association of Botswana (NAB) to form a support group for health workers affected by HIV and AIDS. Following the training, 35 facilitators established support groups at eight facilities to provide psychosocial support to 233 health workers. This was done following the recognition that health workers are on the frontline in providing services and care for the prevention and treatment of HIV/AIDS. The work is physically, emotionally, and psychologically demanding. Health workers not only provide care and support to an increasing number of clients, but many are also affected by HIV personally, either by being infected themselves and/or caring for family affected members.
On the issue of HIV/AIDS and gender, HPI is doing some work through an organization named Kgetsi Ya Tsie (KYT). A situation analysis conducted on KYT identified KYT's strengths and challenges in microfinance, gender, HIV, and community mobilization. Challenges included inadequate governance and leadership structures, limited finance and business management skills, reliance on natural resources without a sustainability plan, limited knowledge on gender and HIV/AIDS, and insufficient resources. HPI and partners used these findings to provide training and support to KYT to revitalize its governance structure and help KYT become more familiar about gender and HIV. To foster collaboration and leverage resources to support KYT, HPI has been meeting with a variety of partners to (1) identify specific resources and TA in microenterprise, HIV/AIDS, and gender that each partner can provide to KYT and (2) foster partnership and coordination in assisting and revitalizing KYT.
