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.
Years of mechanism: 2013
In accordance with the PEPFAR/Ethiopia portfolio realignment, this mechanism will subsume CDC funded communication activities which used to be implemented by Johns Hopkins University Center for Communication Programs (JHU-CCP). USAID will use a central behavioral change communication (BCC) implementation mechanism, Health Communication Capacity Collaborative (HC3). JHU/CCP is the prime implementer of this USAID-funded central mechanism and it will provide technical assistance to improve the dissemination of up-to-date HIV/AIDS information to the public through the Government of Ethiopias (GOE) AIDS Resource Centers (ARC) and other appropriate outlets. This mechanism will also work with Federal HIV/AIDS Prevention and Control Office (HAPCO) to strengthen local HIV communication systems. JHU/CCP works closely with the ARCs and other partners to implement a BCC and stigma reduction program that actively reaches out to and engages people. JHU/CCP designed and implemented BCC programs including multi-media youth interventions, Dagu radio program, 'Dagu Net' and 'Dagu Kit'; maternal and child health campaigns with a focus on PMTCT, and strategies that address gender norms and multiple concurrent partnerships. JHU/CCP provides technical assistance on behavioral interventions targeting highly vulnerable populations. The ARCs are managed by HAPCO, including the national ARC in Addis Ababa and 15 regional ARCs. The target population is the general public and researchers/journalists. JHU/CCPs priorities during the next two years are to expand upon the popular and widespread use of the AIDS information help lines to deliver more targeted communication programs and strengthen the outreach capacity of decentralized regional ARCs.
The target population of Johns Hopkins University Center for Communication Programs (JHU/CCP) program is the general public (particularly high school and university students) and researchers and journalists who will use AIDS Resource Centers (ARC) library resources and websites. The geographic focus is one national ARC and 15 regional ACRs. JHU/CCP will provide technical assistance and support in five priority areas described below.
1. JHU/CCP will support the National AIDS Resource Center (NARC) library and clearing house to serve the HIV information needs of varied audiences ranging from students and researchers, journalists, the general public and special target groups. JHU/CCP will restock materials, streamline distribution channels, institute new distribution systems, and establish systems for remote areas.
2. The highly utilized call-in HIV/AIDS hotline, The Wegen Talkline, offers a source of accurate prevention information and anonymous counseling to callers in multiple languages. JHU/CCP will produce an inventory of service organizations operating in different areas for referrals to hotline callers.
3. JHU/CCP will improve the capacity of public and private media professionals to raise awareness about HIV, mobilize communities, reduce HIV-related stigma and discrimination, and promote HIV services through innovative media. Topics of particular interest will include positive gender norms, delaying sexual debut, abstinence and fidelity.
4. JHU/CCP will continue to provide TA and coordination of media and events lead by federal and regional Ministry of Health (MOH) offices, as well as will support the secondment of prevention and communication experts as needed.
JHU/CCP will strengthen its monitoring and evaluation system to better respond to the USG new generation indicators.
This mechanism will work with Federal HAPCO, Ministry of Health (MoH), USG implementing partners and other stacke holders to coordinate HIV testing messaging and communications in annual big events like; world AIDS day and national testing day. The mechanism will provide technical assistance to Federal HAPCO and other implementing partners on communication materials which are important to increase access to HIV testing and counseling. The mechanism will work closely with HIV testing partners to on designing and pilot-testing communication materials.
The target population of Johns Hopkins University Center for Communication Programs (JHU/CCP) program is the general public (particularly high school and university students) and researchers and journalists who will use AIDS Resource Centers (ARC) library resources and websites. The geographic focus is one national ARC and 15 regional ARCs. As part of the USGs prevention portfolio, JHU/CCP provides technical assistance to several national and regional services and behavior change interventions, which include:
1. JHU/CCP will support the National AIDS Resource Center (NARC) library and clearing house to serve the HIV information needs of varied audiences ranging from students and researchers, journalists, the general public and special target groups such as blind/handicapped. JHU/CCP will restock materials, streamline distribution channels, institute new distribution systems, and establish systems for remote areas.
3. JHU/CCP will continue to provide support and technical assistance for World AIDS Day events, which will include coordination support for media and events lead by the Government of Ethiopia (GOE).
4. JHU/CCP will continue to build communications capacity of public and private media professionals, so that they can more effectively raise awareness about HIV, mobilize communities, reduce HIV-related stigma and discrimination, and promote HIV services through innovative media. Topics of particular interest include positive gender norms, promotion of couples testing, alcohol and HIV, correct and consistent condom use, and treatment adherence.
