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: 2010
Goals and objectives:In close collaboration with the Royal Government of Cambodia, Population Services International (PSI) will implement a social marketing and behavior change program. The program will establish sustainable access to health products, services and behaviors for HIV/AIDS, reproductive health, and child survival in Cambodia.
Geographic coverage and target populations:PSI will implement the social marketing program in urban and peri-urban areas with a high concentration of most-at-risk populations in Phnom Penh, Sihanoukville, Battambang, Siem Reap, Pursat, Takeo, Svey Rieng, and Kampong Thom provinces. Through interpersonal communication, the program will reach 165,000 high-risk urban men, 7,000 female entertainment workers, and 7,500 men who have sex with men.
Cost efficiency:Measures to promote cost efficiency will include: 1) employing marketing strategies to enhance commodity demand, reduce reliance on donor subsidies, and improve cost-recovery for condoms and other reproductive health products; 2) improving sub-partner coordination to avoid duplicative investments in management and service delivery; and 3) implementing performance-based financing across sub-partners. To promote long-term sustainability, PSI will enhance commercial-sector engagement and employ existing commodity distribution networks. PSI will provide technical assistance to sub-partners to enhance local capacity to socially market condoms, lubricant, and other reproductive health products for men who have sex with men and entertainment workers.
Monitoring and evaluation:PSI will implement routine behavioral surveys to assess and enhance program performance. PSI will also conduct distribution surveys to measure product access among most-at-risk populations.

PSI strengthens health systems by: 1) improving private sector capacity to serve the poor and vulnerable; 2) ensuring public-private linkages and information sharing; and 3) building the capacity of local civil society sub-partners to deliver products and information.
PSI strengthens health systems in both the public and private sector, providing training for family planning providers to strengthen their counseling skills. In the private sector, PSI brings together service providers through the Sun Quality Health Network of pharmacies, clinics, entertainment establishments, and small village shops, and focuses on improving service-quality standards through site supervision visits and assistance in the legal registration of private clinics. PSI also facilitates the reporting of service-delivery data from the private sector to the Ministry of Health.
PSI improves the capacity of its civil society sub-partners to implement quality interpersonal communication and social marketing for affordable health products, services, and referrals. Through its sub-partners, PSI supports targeted distribution of condoms, lubricant, and other health products to most-at-risk populations. PSI facilitates the enumeration and mapping of high-risk venues, and helps to supply these venues with condoms and lubricant. PSI applies a collaborative 'research to action' approach to the development of communication messages and tools. Routine training and field monitoring ensure the quality and consistency of prevention interventions. PSI aims to improve public-private linkages by strengthening referral mechanisms among public and private partners.
Target populations:The program targets primarily most-at-risk populations, including female entertainment workers, high-risk urban men and men who have sex with men.
Interventions:PSI will implement a social marketing and behavior change program with two objectives: 1) increasing access to and demand for high quality affordable health products; and 2) enhancing local organizations capacity to conduct social marketing and behavior change activities. PSIs HIV prevention efforts will assess and address the changing needs of key target populations, and fill in gaps in available services while enhancing collaboration across partners in the health product distribution arena.
In FY 2012, PSI will continue to socially market the Number One and OK condom brands. PSI will reposition the Number One brand in the market to establish full cost recovery, and will maintain modest subsidized support for the OK condom brand for those unable to pay higher prices. PSI will transition to an indirect distribution system through existing clinics, entertainment establishments, and small village shops. With complementary funding from the Global Fund, PSI will continue social marketing of the OK Plus condom and bundled lubricant targeting men who have sex with men and female entertainment workers.
PSI will build local sub-partner capacity to bring needed prevention commodities and services to entertainment workers, high-risk urban men, and men who have sex with men. To address the high unmet need for contraceptive use among entertainment workers, PSI will use complementary funding from a private foundation to support commodities, promote modern family planning methods, and support a reproductive-health hotline for entertainment workers.
PSI will continue to deliver behavior change communications targeting high-risk urban men in entertainment establishments. Communication messages will promote condom use with entertainment workers and sweethearts.
