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: 2011
USG Ghana's PF will continue its support to the tiered MOH national public health laboratory system and will reinforce the institutional capacity and the coordination role of the national HIV, TB, and malaria programs in building sustainable national infrastructure, managerial and technical workforce capacity and expanding services to provide quality diagnostic testing, clinical laboratory monitoring of treatment, and surveillance.
This mechanism will be used to continue to request technical assistance from other PEPFAR and regional countries to provide training and technical support to implement cost effective quality assurance activities towards WHO-AFRO accreditaton process. CDC will hold this money at HQ in order to send cables out to respective PEPFAR countries as necessary. This south to south TA will also include training on molecular diagnostic testing for early infant diagnostic and quality management system (managerial and technical), in compliance with international requirements with the goal of accreditation.
