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.

I-TECH’s goal is to strengthen health systems for improved, expanded, equitable and sustainable HIV service delivery through individual and institutional capacity building. This is an ongoing project that supports goal 4 (HSS) of PEPFAR/India’s strategy.
I-TECH works at the national level with NACO, and with the 10 NACO-designated Centers of Excellence (COE) throughout India. This project also targets health care providers in these institutions.
Project efficiencies are maximized by using innovative and economical capacity building models including the National Distance Learning Clinical Series (NDLCS) using Adobe Connect Pro Platform, clinical and programmatic mentoring, Expert Physician Access Number (EPAN), E-Library, COE Network Website, Research Capacity Building Programs.
I-TECH’s transition strategy is based on equipping COE staff to implement this range of programs in their regions through a) continuous on-site capacity building and technical assistance, and b) creation of customized database management systems
To monitor and evaluate project activities, I-TECH plans a range of activity-specific and project-wide assessments including: baseline and final assessments of training and clinical mentoring; continuous monitoring of specific activities through periodic reporting, site visits and quarterly review meetings. I-TECH plans a program-wide expert external evaluation.
