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.
In collabortion with a social marketting firm, the CDC will develop and conduct a social marketing campaign that will promote PMTCT services among pregnant women. The campaign will include training, educational and promotional materials in order to increase awareness of existing services. This campaign will be piloted in two regions. Based on marketting results it will expanded to the entire country.
In FY 2010 USG will continue to strengthen MCH services to support PMTCT care and early infant diagnosis (EID) in at least ten "Centers of Excellence" hospitals throughout the country. Technical assistance, on-site training and support will be provided at the hospital level to integrate HIV/AIDS prevention and treatment services with wrap around services in reproductive health, tuberculosis, nutrition and immunizations, improve referrals, strengthen diagnostics and counseling, including the supply of quality test kits, CD4 and EID testing.
Health care providers will be trained in EID, dry blood sampling and referrals. A revised logistics system will transport samples to the National Reference Laboratory and results will be communicated to the appropriate hospital departments in a timely manner. Opt-out testing will be implemented as a pilot program in selected facilities. NGOs will be integrated into the system to assure linkages between hospitals and their communities.
USG will provide NGOs, FBOs and CBOs with technical assistance and support to create awareness in their respective communities of the health services available at the hospitals, provide linkages between hospitals and their communities, reduce the loss of mothers and their infants to follow-up programs and provide emotional and psychological support to HIV positive women and their families.
