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.
Years of mechanism: 2010
Based on the results of the updated OVC assessment, USAID will design a new activity to target OVCs and their needs.
Many children in the DR are vulnerable to HIV/AIDS. In FY2009, the USAID AED contract has been slow to implement its OVC component. Only three grants were awarded to NGOs to address the needs of OVC in line with PEPFAR requirements [In 2010 it is expected that three more grants will be funded]. AED provided TA and support to NGOs and mentors to provide quality care and to coordinate with the community, government and civil society partners in order to meet the needs of OVCs. USG-supported package of services includes referral to health services (immunization, emotional and psychological counseling), educational assistance (including tuition), economic support for clothing, support for caregivers and communities. Legal services to secure birth registration and training caregivers on providing a better health and nutritional environment are also provided.
With FY2009 PFIP funds, USAID will continue to support AED to expand services to OVC in Region V and VII. With the results of the assessment to be funded with PFIP FY 2008 funds and with FY 2010 funds, USAID will design a new activity to fund NGOs, CBOs, FBOs to provide services addressing the needs of OVCs wherever they may be. This activity may include technical training for youth, urban vegetable gardens and/or summer camps offering sports and creative arts. This approach will build resilience and hope in these children.
