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: 2012
NOTE: The following is taken from summaries released by PEPFAR on the PEPFAR Data Dashboard. They are incomplete summary paragraphs only and do not contain the full mechanism details. When the full narratives are released, we will update the mechanism pages accordingly.
The goal of SIAPS is to ensure access to quality pharmacy services that will lead to improved health outcomes. SIAPS works with 3 federal agencies, in all 11 regions & 700 ART sites, & with Ethiopian Pharmaceutical Association (EPA). In accordance with the GHI HSS: Commodity & Logistics Systems Strategy, SIAPS strengthens pharmaceutical systems & services. Hence, it is considered a core activity & contributes to HSS strategy & treatment program of PEPFAR by providing TA to GOE, civil society & private health facilities. SIAPS is supporting country-owned & led responses to build & institutionalize the Hospital reform guidelines, the 12 standards of pharmacy at hospitals & 5 standards in HCs. But, the pharmaceutical management information system will cover all PEPFAR-supported ART sites. It extends its support at the national, regional, & local HF levels (public & private) & the EPA to advance country ownership & sustainability for improved pharmacy services & systems that can contribute to the national HIV/AIDS response. SIAPS will provide TA, training, system development & institutional capacity building to MOH, FMHACA, PFSA, 11 RHBs & health facilities. SIAPS is expanding its targets & coverage while graduating matured sites as a key approach for transition & through both regional & federal government involvement & contribution. The project has M&E plans & will regularly report on the indicators. SIAPS will have an increase outlay because of the scale up & institutionalizing three key national initiatives.This mechanism will receive additional funds of $2,3,05,176 from future proposed reprogramming to meet its total spending of $2,380,176.This mechanism will receive additional funds of $2,305,176 from proposed reprogramming to meet its total spend amount of $2,770, 00
Since COP2014, PEPFAR no longer produces narratives for every mechanism it funds. However, PEPFAR has now included performance targets or indicator information for each mechanism based on the Monitoring, Evaluation, and Reporting (MER) system. The MER guidance is available on PEPFAR's website https://www.pepfar.gov/reports/guidance/. Note that COP years 2014-2015 were under a previous version of the MER system and the indicators and definitions may have changed as of the new 2.0 guidance.
