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.

JHPIEGO is the prime partner for the Maternal and Child Health Integrated Program (MCHIP), USAIDs flagship maternal, neonatal and child health (MNCH) program. MCHIP seeks to address pre-service needs for HIV prevention, treatment, care and support among midwifery, community health and public health nurse training institutions. These include HIV technical updates for tutors, training of preceptors, development and/or review of training curricula. JHPIEGO/MCHIP works to expand key MNCH services, including the integration of the prevention of HIV and treatment of HIV/AIDS, into appropriate health care services. Much of this work has been primarily through training and supportive supervision of providers. JHPIEGO/MCHIP uses a competency-based approach to improve the skills and knowledge of providers in evidence-based practices. Improve the quality of PMTCT education and HIV, STI and AIDS care, and to develop and strengthen practicum sites. Emphasis will be on a competency-based approach supported by learning guides, job aids and learning models materials. All programs will include basic knowledge and skills to work with MARP.
There is inadequate number of trained personnel at all levels of the health care delivery system to support implementation of HIV related activities are great challenges to the health sector as a whole and thus affects the health sector response to HIV.MCHIP will address this barrier by in order to meet the needs for HIV prevention, treatment, care and support envisaged HIV will have been included in the pre-service training of all health workers, training of preceptors, development and/or review of training curricula and admission and training of participants to ensure adequate numbers of trained staff are available in the long term. For preceptor training, MCHIP will leverage Government budget provision to undertake this activity.
This fund will strengthen MCHIP pre-service education of midwives and community health nurses, this will be achieved by reducing stigma that midwives, preceptors and staff have towards PLHIV as well as MARPS.The Ghana constitution criminalises the activities of MARPs and they suffer stigma and discrimination from the general public and harassment from the Police as well as health care workers. There are laws, regulations, or policies that present obstacles to access to prevention, treatment, care and support for these vulnerable sub-populations. There are laws that criminalise same sex sexual activities between consenting adults and laws deeming sex work to be illegal. Public health services do not officially target them as specific groups with specific needs for HIV services. However, a number of NGOs with support from some development partners are providing HIV prevention information and services for MARPs. MCHIP will address issues of discrimination among MARPS by providing the platform for linkages between MARP NGOs and pre-service institutions to provide an opportunity for students and tutors to interact with MARPS to better understand the health needs of this vulnerable sub population.
