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.

This new Ethiopia Highly Vulnerable Children (HVC) Program continues the activities for OVC under the Positive Change: Children, Communities and Care (PC3) program. The primary goal is to reduce vulnerability among OVC and their families by strengthening systems and structures to deliver quality services to increase resiliency through a family-centered care and support approach. The program will reach 500,000 highly vulnerable children through a systems approach resting on four pillars: 1) Addressing child development needs; 2) Ensuring availability of and access to high quality services; 3) Strengthening community support; and 4) Promoting evidence-based decision-making and policy development. This is aligned with the GHI strategy to reduce socio-economic impacts of HIV on OVCs and people living with HIV/AIDS and the PF Goal 2.5: Increase care and support to needy OVC from 30% in 2008 to 50% by 2014. HVC will strengthen capacity and partnerships with local civil society and govt partners for better network coordination of services and support using standardized existing guidelines, tools, and materials. Coverage will be natl with emphasis on urban hotspots with high HIV prevalence. By the end of 2014, a child-focused Social Welfare Framework will be locally sustained to support quality, comprehensive services and empower caregivers to holistically address the needs of children and families through cost-effective coordination and integrated linkages in an extended care network focused on child wellness and family support. With its natl scope, the IP will operate six offices to appropriately provide M & E and coordinate community-based activities with continuous support supervision and review meetings. Six vehicles will be purchased for activity implementation
The Ethiopia Highly Vulnerable Children (HVC) Program is the USAID umbrella mechanism to support HVC and their families affected by HIV/AIDS. The program components will be implemented at the regional and community levels by PACT International, in conjunction with Family Health International, ChildFund and more than 40 local implementing partners. UNICEF will implement programming at the Federal level. Furthermore, PACT will manage sub-awards to local Ethiopian entities that will comprise of up to 75% of the total funding received each year. HVC builds on existing strengths at the family, household, community and government levels to support the needs of highly vulnerable children. Central to ensuring quality services is family-centered care management that recognizes that child well-being is wholly dependent on household members, HVC and their families to receive age-appropriate, inclusive services and active child participation. The programs regional to community level component also works with government administrative offices from three Ministries and a variety of service organizations. In addition to Boston Universitys engagement to design and implement an impact evaluation, the HVC program should also include robust monitoring, evaluation, feedback and learning processes that generate evidence to inform program implementation and policy discussions.
