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.
Expenditure Sub-Program Areas track more specific PEPFAR expenditures.
Object classes provide highly specific ways that implementing partners are spending PEPFAR funds on programming.
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
Beneficiary Expenditure data identify how PEPFAR programming is targeted at reaching different populations.
Sub-Beneficiary Expenditure data highlight more specific populations targeted for HIV prevention and treatment interventions.
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: 2005
THIS IS AN ONGOING ACTIVITY.
The changes to the program since approval in the 2007 COP are
• due to ceiling problem with Measure Evaluation, a follow-on bilateral agreement through sole source with
University of North Carolina under a new funding mechanism known as APHIA II Evaluation is being
negotiated and once completed will implement the activity,
• the plan to lead a coordinated approach to MARP studies conducted by other implementing partners
through a workshop to standardize the approach and coordinate studies among different partners and to
disseminate findings in a single workshop ($100,000), plan to conduct data quality assessment, develop
and support a data quality monitoring and improvement plan through use of data quality assessment tool for
capacity building in order to both assess the quality of data related to selected PEPFAR indicators
(especially those of high NASCOP and NACC priority) and to institutionalize the capacity within
implementing partners to conduct routine DQAs ($50,000),
• harmonization of GIS datasets across various organizations and programs within the Kenyan health sector
resulting in a base of GIS health sector data ($52,000), and
• plan to support the rollout of District Management Information System (DMIS) to 5 additional districts to
enhance routine collection, analysis and reporting of data on OVC enrollment and school attendance
($250,000). Targets and funding level have also changed.
1.LIST OF RELATED ACTIVITIES
This activity is related to activities in strategic information (#7002, #9220, and #9012).
This activity has several components. The first component of this activity ($720,500), will continue to
support the position of an SI resident advisor ($605,000) to coordinate and support USG PEPFAR reporting
in Kenya by: 1) coordinating PEPFAR reporting among all of Kenya's implementing partners ($10,000); 2)
maintaining the Kenya-Program Monitoring System, KePMS and providing database training to all new
PEPFAR implementing partners (IPs) ($42,300); 3) continuing to work with PSRI to assess the M&E training
needs and provide general (50 people) and targeted (50 people) M&E training to staff of 90 PEPFAR IPs
($63,200 sub-contract to PSRI). In the second component ($750,500), MEASURE will support NACC to fully
develop Community Based Program Activity Reporting (COBPAR) by implementing the stakeholder
consultation and data use modules in the two provinces of Rift Valley and Coast in addition to the on going
national roll out. This is a phased process that will initially start in the two provinces, but gradually, based on
its success, will be expanded to other provinces. MEASURE will achieve this by 1) providing technical
support to build community-level capacity to generate and use information for program planning in these
two provinces and assist with expansion of community level program reporting through the stakeholder
engagement processes in other provinces (sub contract NACC $150,500 and $75,000 TA); 2) assisting
NACC with remote data capture and dissemination through automation of their data entry by purchasing
hardware and providing training at the CACC level for 20 District Technical Committees' computers
($75,000) and for 70 PDA ($175,000) for 60 CACCs; 3) training staff by sub-contracting PSRI ($75,000) to
train 125 people in 5 5-day trainings at Coast and Rift Valley); 4) conducting evaluation of this focused
approach in 2 provinces to learn lessons valuable to its expansion, develop national database (COBPAR,
CRIS), and upgrade the system to allow for routine data analysis ($50,000). MEASURE will carry out a
capacity building assessment, and, jointly with NACC management, develop a capacity building action plan
and follow-up on its implementation ($40,000). For increased system ownership and data use among all
stakeholders, MEASURE will further support 1) upgrading of the COBPAR training manual to include
lessons learnt during training of trainers (TOT) in 2 provinces; 2) inclusion of COBPAR training modules in
management training courses; 3) development and printing of data collection tools (registers) for COBPAR
reporting; and 4) technical assistance for central engagement of stakeholders in reviewing the COBPAR
system and data use ($110,000). The third component ($300,000) will support both short and long-term
M&E training needs in Kenya, in order to build a cadre of professionals in Kenya who are skilled in
monitoring and evaluation of HIV/AIDS programs. In the short run, MEASURE will seek to improve and
increase the number of professionals with HIV/AIDS M&E skills in Kenya, by collaborating with PSRI to
implement two 2-week short course on M&E of HIV/AIDS for 60 program managers and MOH staff,
currently involved in implementing HIV/AIDS programs ($75,000). For long term M&E capacity building in
the country, MEASURE will provide technical support to University of Nairobi/PSRI to develop a graduate
level M&E training course. ($225,000). This support will aid in meeting the high demand for advanced-level
M&E training in Kenya by increasing access to graduate level M&E training at affordable costs.
MEASURE's technical support will be in the area of development/adaptation of the existing M&E training
curricula to be implemented in a MPH-level M&E concentration at the university. PSRI will manage course
operations and cover training expenses through course fees. In the fourth component ($50,000), MEASURE
will seek to strengthen existing sources of cause-specific mortality statistics by improving the consistency
and standardization of AIDS mortality data collection procedures and methodology in 5 Demographic
Surveillance Sites (Kilifi, KEMRI, Kibera, Rusinga and Nairobi Urban), Central Bureau of Statistics, and
Ministry of Health. MEASURE will design and support a focused action plan to improve the quality of
mortality data. Technical input and collaboration will also be sought from members of the Health Metrics
Network ‘Monitoring of Vital Events' (MoVE) Task Group specifically: CDC National Center for Health
Statistics, Health Metrics Network, and INDEPTH. Use of facility and community-based data sources,
including resources will be enhanced through a) facilitating implementation of plans for increased
coordination, collaboration, and harmonization of methods relating to mortality surveillance at existing DSS;
b) increasing use of AIDS-specific mortality outputs by stakeholders at all levels through broad-based
stakeholders joint planning and reporting; c) collaborating with existing DSS sites in Kenya and MOH to
expand demographic and mortality surveillance using SAVVY to increase representativeness, quality and
use of AIDS-specific mortality data. Quality assessment methods for Kenya's vital registration
system/routine medical certification and coding of AIDS-related mortality will be strengthened and use of
available mortality data by various stakeholders improved. MEASURE will develop a detailed annual work
plan that will guide the implementation of this activity, monitoring of key results, information dissemination,
reporting and use at all levels of the national HIV/AIDS response.
3. CONTRIBUTIONS TO OVERALL PROGRAM AREA.
The activity builds on FY 2006 activities that support the national M&E systems as well as contributing to
the Emergency Plan's training outputs. The activity will provide technical assistance to 110 local
organizations and community based structures in strategic information in addition to supporting the training
of 285 other health care workers like M&E/HMIS Officers, Program managers, District Technical
Activity Narrative: Committees and CACCS in M&E/HMIS, reporting and data use for program management.
4. LINKS TO OTHER ACTIVITIES
This activity is related to the strategic information activity to be carried out by NASCOP (#7002), where
NASCOP will be rolling out Form 726, Form 727 and program specific client registers for data collection and
reporting at health facilities. It is also related to SI TE/TBD (#9220), that will attempt to investigate the
causes for low reporting rate by health facilities and recommend strategies for achieving 100% reporting
level by health facilities. It is related to strategic information activity to be carried out by Price
WaterhouseCoopers/NACC (#9012) which will support the development of data management infrastructure
and supportive field supervision of COBPAR activities by the M&E Coordinator.
5. POPULATIONS BEING TARGETED
This activity targets host government workers.
6. EMPHASIS AREAS
The major emphasis is USG database and reporting system while minor includes monitoring, evaluation, or
reporting (or program level data collection and information technology (IT) and communications
infrastructure. Measure Evaluation will use the additional funds ($400,000) to 1) strengthen the capacity of
the Resident Advisor's office by recruiting additional Strategic Information Officers to provide the much
needed M&E technical support to PEPFAR partners at provincial and district levels 2) to support the
recruitment, relocation and transition expenses for the new Resident Advisor for Kenya.
