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
USG Ghana, through buy-in to the USAID/Washington Economic Growth, Agricultural and Trade Sustainable Tree Crops Program (STCP), will partner with licensed, Ghanaian cocoa buying companies to support HIV prevention efforts in cocoa producing centers. Cacao is a cash-crop and farmers often get a year's income all at once in their hands. Some then engage in high-risk activities like alcohol use and commercial sex, when farmers with cash transform sleepy towns into around-the-clock parties. Through a partnership with JHU, activities will include: interpersonal HIV communication through peer educators and condom activations and entertainment-education events in 'hot spots' (e.g. bars). USAID will coordinate efforts with the distribution of branded condoms through EXP Momentum, a Ghanaian social marketing firm. Cocoa buying companies will contribute $Redacted of in-kind contributions of staff time. USG Ghana will continue to coordinate closely with OGAC's PPP team on this activity. Project activities will be implemented in USAID/Ghana health focus regions and efforts will be made to ensure synergistic relationships with on-going safe motherhood, family planning and MCH interventions.
Funding will be used to strengthen Licensed Cocoa Buying Agents and other community volunteers to integrate HIV information and education in their field extension activities with cocoa farmers. Trained peer educators and community volunteers will undertake information, education and communication activities in 'HIV hot spots' (e.g., bars) and further promote condom awareness and usage. JHU will work closely with EXP Momentum to undertake condom activations and BCC activities in the selected hot spots where high-risk activities take place to ensure the availability of behavior change communication materials are readily available to support HIV education and uptake of services through referral.
