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 FY 2010, the USG will continue to strengthen MCH services to support PMTCT services including early infant diagnosis (EID) in at least ten "Centers of Excellence" hospitals and 26 hospitals in regions V and VII. TA, 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, referrals strengthening, improved HIV counseling and diagnostic services strengthen, 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.
With PFIP FY 2009 additional funding and FY 2010 budget, USG will strengthen and scale up the access to and quality of CT activities in MOH hospitals; training will include DAF and NGO personnel, especially those in Border provinces. This intervention will seek to improve laboratory ability to provide quality test results in a timely manner. USG will also continue to support NGOs, CBOs and PLWA organizations to mobilize communities to encourage preventive behaviors and seek quality CT, provide counseling and testing in the communities, and facilitate active referrals for care and treatment, while also reducing barriers to CT such as stigma and discrimination.
USG will continue to support trained PLWA to provide emotional support and links to community based support groups. HIV+ individuals will be referred to TB testing as appropriate. Individuals with negative test results, either in clinics or a mobile unit will be provided with prevention information, including contact information for prevention and other community programs. USG will continue to support routine testing and counseling via organizations that work with sex workers, such as COIN and CEPROSH, linking these organizations to service delivery networks so they can work together. A mass media campaign to promote CT services targeting health personnel and individuals will be developed.
With MOH approval, USG will implement a pilot project "VCT Centers of Excellence" to demonstrate the feasibility of provider-initiated testing and opt-out possibilities. USAID will design a new mechanism to implement CT Centers of Excellence in 12 sites (10 in public hospitals, two in NGOs clinics).
Assuming the opt-out pilot is successful, USAID plans to provide TA to scale-up to 120 public CT and NGO services, design a mass media campaign to promote CT services and fund networks of persons living with HIV/AIDS to provide counselors and linkages to services
Improve quality of PMTCT services (including e.i.d.) in at least 5 hospitals the first year to complete ten in the second year of activity (including Armed Forces).
