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: 2011
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.
Building Local Capacity (BLC) is a five-year project which aims to strengthen the sustainability, quality and reach of HIV/AIDS organizations to implement policies and health services for those infected and affected by HIV in Botswana, Lesotho, Namibia and Swaziland. In Botswana, the program contributes to achieving improved delivery of quality health care services through the application of leadership and management practices, utilization of service data, work climate improvement and sound management systems. The objective responds to 2 strategic objectives of Goal 2, Capacity Building and Health Systems Strengthening, of the Government of Botswana (GOB) National Strategic Framework II (2010-2016).
The program is presently being implemented in 13 health facilities. This number will increase in FY 2012 to 16 to meet received expressions of readiness for accreditation. It will continue to target health managers in the Ministry of Health’s (MOH) Health Inspectorate and Clinical Services Departments and District Health Management Teams (DHMTs).
Lessons learnt from FY 2011 have informed the adoption of an integrated approach of quality improvement and leadership (QIL) and introduction of activities to improve coordination and supportive supervision. This will reduce the number of workshops and overall costs. BLC will continue to explore incremental cost-share from GOB as it continues to demonstrate political will for the accreditation of public health facilities. Emphasis will be placed on technical assistance, accompaniment and participatory skills development for MOH staff and DHMTs to become better drivers of the accreditation process. BLC will continue to pursue and report on results-oriented indicators.
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.
