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
In the context of the Dominican Republic Partnership Framework, USAIDs support to PSI will contribute to achieving Goal Area 1, Public Policies, and Goal Area 3, Promotion and Prevention. Through the life of the Condom Social Marketing Project 2011-2014, PSI will distribute 15 million condoms per year through its total market approach. In addition to expanding access to condoms, PSI will also create condom demand by implementing behavior change interventions targeting MSM, Sex Workers, Clients of Sex Workers, youth, and residents of bateyes (sugar cane plantations). PSI will continue to work with GODRs Contraceptive Security Committee to develop and implement a national condom policy stipulating responsibilities of the GODR and the commercial sector to comply with national AIDS legislation (e.g., no import duties on condoms). Policy development will also include helping the GODR to develop the skills to be able to forecast the quantity of condoms required by each target population and establishing responsibilities for financing, procuring and distributing condoms within the public sector. By taking a total market approach, PSI will look to transition persons from free to subsidized to full-priced condoms. Furthermore, by coordinating with Haiti, it will also mitigate the risk of condom leakage across the border. Through the life of the project, PSI will train local organizations to create sustainability in their condom social marketing strategies. In order to monitor and evaluate performance, the project will use surveys, sales reports and reports measuring both outputs and outcomes.
PSI will target specific vulnerable populations including MSM, Sex Workers, Youth and Residents of Bateyes with condom promotion and distribution activities. Condom use remains quite low in these populations, so emphasis will be placed not only on access to condoms, but also on creating demand within these vulnerable groups. PSI will leverage Peace Corps Volunteers and other implementing partners, including local organizations supported by USG, to expand the reach of its program.
