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: 2008
The proposed activities are to: 1) Reduce stigma and discrimination. 2) Build capacity of beneficiaries (Staff,
Leader youth, OVC, PLWHA and caregivers) to prevent new infections. 3) Provide education in health,
nutrition and prevention to OVC and PLWHA. Trainings and prevention education programs based on
abstinence and being faithful will raise awareness, reduce stigma, and empower beneficiaries to make good
life choices. Work will focus on behavior change. New activities and will be implemented as a
comprehensive integrated program with cross cutting activities of prevention to OVC and PC beneficiaries.
Outside of the West department, where AERDO is not implementing PC programs, the prevention programs
will serve the OVC populations in the same manner as in the West Department, described below.
The emphasis areas are training (major: 60%), community mobilization (minor: 25%), linkage with other
sectors (minor: 15%), information/education/communication (minor: 10%), quality assurance (minor: 10%)
and strategic information (minor: 10%). The primary target populations are children and youth, community
leaders, NGOs/PVOs, volunteers, men and women (including those of reproductive age), out-of-school
youth, religious leaders, public and private health care workers, and HIV-positive children (5-14 years).
Coverage area includes West, Northwest, North, South, Central Plateaue, Southeast, and Artibonite.
This activity is expanding on the current PEPFAR-funded COP 08 ABY activities carried out by AERDO in
Haiti. Each partner agency will work with the Haiti Ministry of Health (MOH) at the community level, and
WCDO will also coordinate with the MOH at the national level. WCDO and all sub partners will disseminate
accurate information regarding prevention, which we believe to be efficacious toward behavioral changes.
Religious leaders, community leaders and other influential persons will also be mobilized and trained to
provide support in making important life choices. All these activities will be channeled through each
agency's church and community-based networks. AB activities will be gender balanced with at least 50% of
the beneficiaries being female. Ensuring access to AB activities for females will help to reinforce their
capacity to manage and negotiate their sexuality.
ACTIVITIES AND EXPECTED RESULTS:
ACTIVITY 1: Reduce stigma and discrimination. Staff and leader youth who will provide HIV prevention
training to OVC and PLWHA will be trained or retrained on HIV prevention and care for PLWHA. PLWHA
will share their testimonies during prevention trainings for these high-risk groups of OVC and PLWHA,
encouraging disclosure to sexual partners for those trainings addressing PLWHA.
ACTIVITY 2: Build capacity of beneficiaries (Staff, Leader youth, OVC, PLWHA and caregivers) to prevent
new infections. Staff and leader youth will be retrained on 18 modules of approved and revised Choose Life
curriculum and ABC prevention messages. Leader youth will then train OVC using the Choose Life
curriculum, and staff will train PLWHA on ABC prevention messages when necessary, as well as healthy
sexual behaviors. Sexual abuse and other HIV-related themes will be shared during conferences and
meetings to affected and/or infected youth while they are involved in capacity building activities, such as
vocational training to enhance financial independence and reduce risky behaviors. Programming will move
beyond information dissemination to behavior change communication by addressing couple discordance,
healthy sexual relationships, condom negotiation, and life decisions such as having children. Groups of
married or cohabiting PLWHA or sero-discordant couples will be reached with training on healthy, faithful
ACTIVITY 3: Provide education in health, nutrition and prevention to OVC and PLWHA. Through group
trainings and home visits, OVC and PLWHA will be trained on good nutrition, proper hygiene, HIV facts, and
prevention of STI's, as well as opportunistic infections.
