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.

NEW ACTIVITY NARRATIVE
Staff for the HHS/CDC Program is funded through the Global AIDS Program (GAP). The program has three
offices: in Delhi, Chennai, and Hyderabad. It is led by a USDH CDC Country Director and a Deputy Director
for Operations based in New Delhi. The Delhi office has one FSN medical officer; one locally contracted
technical consultant, the PEPFAR SI officer (not funded by GAP), two FSN support staff and one driver. In
Chennai, Tamil Nadu, two USDH positions (one epidemiologist- and one behavioral scientist) based at the
US Consulate provide technical support to CDC programs in south India, supported by two FSN technical
officers (medical and scientific), one laboratory scientist (to be filled), one FSN support staff and one driver.
In Hyderabad, Andhra Pradesh (AP), there are two FSN technical officers (medical and scientific), who are
co-located with the AP State AIDS Control Society.
CDC's core strength is in providing technical assistance and capacity development activities. CDC requires
staff with administrative and technical experience, often with a medical background and strong expertise in
training. Core strengths include a focus on surveillance, M&E, lab strengthening and evidence based
strategic planning for HIV/AIDS activities. CDC provides technical consultants and support to NACO, the
SACS, and input in several technical areas, including ART rollout, CT, PMTCT, laboratory, care, M&E
protocols, national guidelines and training curricula. In the field, CDC is directly involved in providing
technical assistance to partners to improve laboratory and surveillance systems and implement integrated
prevention, care and treatment programs at the state and district level.
• Funding for the PEPFAR Strategic Information Officer (SI Officer) is through GHCS funds (as is the case
for the PEPFAR Coordinator and Program Management Assistant). This position is currently based in the
CDC office in Delhi: it is hoped that in the future the PEPFAR unit can be co-located. The SI Officer has
primary responsibility for development and review of the collection and analysis of data related to the overall
PEPFAR program; specifically, she is responsible for the Annual Progress Report, in-house quarterly
reports and working with partners to develop, harmonize across agencies and justify interagency targets for
the Country Operational Plan. She is also responsible for training partners in data collection,
disaggregation, and quality control.
• The total funding for this position is $160,368, of which $79,529 covers salary and travel and $80,839 is
allocated for administrative costs (ICASS: $17,796; Other Costs: $63,043).
