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
A task order under the AIDSTAR IQC was awarded by March 2010 - the SHARPER Project. Objectives are to improve MARP and PLHIV's knowledge, attitudes and practice of key health behaviors; to increase utilization of quality HIV/AIDS related health services for MARP and PLHIV; and to strengthen human and institutional capacity of MARP and PLHIV program implementers and coordination bodies. Activities will take place in 30 districts with a concentration of MARP, with at least 25 NGO subgrantees carrying out the interventions.
The HIV/AIDS prevention interventions for MARP and PLHIV focus primarily on the following key health behaviors: 1) use condoms consistently and correctly; 2) use non-oil based lubricants properly; 3) get tested and know your result; 4) disclose your HIV status to regular partners; 5) promptly seek appropriate and effective treatment (including for STI); 6) adhere to treatment (including ART, OIs and STIs); 7) reduce your number of multiple and concurrent sexual partners; 8) actively participate in program design and implementation; 9) eat healthfully; 10) protect yourself against infectious diseases such as TB, malaria and diarrhea. Main means to reach the target groups are Peer and small group education; condom promotion, bar activations and cell-phone-based interventions. In addition, there's a focus on reducing vulnerability of MARP through improved legal protection which should lead to a reduction of gender-based violance and coercion.
Through peer education, outreach, "Helpline" programs and TC services, MSM, FSW, MSW, NPPs and PLHIV will be encouraged to disclose their HIV status to their regular partners. Provider-initiated TC will be introduced for all STI clients.
Funding will be used for partner reduction activities among NPPs of CSWs and among the MSM population, using peer education and DJs at MSM "trust" parties. There are no abstinence-only activities planned.
Funding will be used to promote HIV/AIDS prevention and healthier behavior among MARP and PLHIV, through peer education programs, community events and telecommunication programs. Appropriate and consistent condom use of will be promoted among male and female sex workers (MSW and FSW), their clients, their NPPs, MSM and their female partners and PLHIV, including distribution of condoms and lubricant, through peer educators. Dedicated "Help Lines" with specially trained telephone counselors for MSM and for FSWs that were started in 2008 will be scaled up, and a helpline for PLHIV will be piloted.
