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.

THIS IS AN ONGOING ACTIVITY. THE NARRATIVE IS UNCHANGED EXCEPT FOR UPDATED
REFERENCES TO TARGETS AND BUDGETS.
1. LIST OF RELATED ACTIVITIES
This activity relates to activities in Counseling and Testing (#8976, #8782, #8760, #8776, #8781, and
#8777), Palliative Care (#7102, #8936, #8863, #8928, #8929, #8934, and #8931), ARV services (#8765,
#8792, #8774, #8797, #8813 and #8826).
2. ACTIVITY DESCRIPTION
Ten member agencies of the Association of Evangelical Relief and Development Agencies (AERDO) have
come together in the AERDO HIV/AIDS Alliance (AHA) to mobilize comprehensive community and faith-
based responses to HIV/AIDS. Six of these AHA agencies are in Kenya and will work together to meet the
needs of orphans and vulnerable children (OVC). Building upon the complementary strengths and coverage
of these agencies, the AHA will integrate community interventions for the care of OVC. These agencies
share the distinction that they all work in partnership with local churches and community-based
organizations. They will collaborate to help churches and communities increase their compassionate care
and support to OVC while improving their quality of life. A firm foundation for the program has been laid in
the first and second year with programs expanded and goals met. This third year will see a larger outreach
in the numbers of OVC as the agencies have a full year to mobilize the churches and CBOs. There has
been strong success in the recruiting and retaining of volunteers that are the core of providing individual
care to the children in need. The creation of programs within the national churches and CBOs allows for
program self sustainability. As identifying OVC individually as HIV/AIDS affected can create significant
stigma we have focused our areas of intervention in high prevalence areas. Possible interventions include
training and/or inputs for the following: help doing regular chores, business training, micro credit loans,
vegetable gardens, livestock, protection of property, basic health care, psychosocial support, care giver
support groups, food, adult role models, formal education and/or vocational training. The need and
resources will be considered for each OVC and a plan made on how to help. The volunteers will bring
training to the household on the many issues above as they apply to that household. Their resources are
being mobilized and volunteers trained so that they can continue serving OVC and their caregivers after
USAID grant funding ends. This activity also includes support to the following sub recipients for activities
integral to the program World Relief (WR), Christian Reformed World Relief Committee (CR), Food for the
Hungry (FH), Nazarene Compassionate Ministries (NC), Medical Assistance Program (MA) and World
Concern Development Organization (WC).
3. CONTRIBUTIONS TO OVERALL PROGRAM AREA
This activity will contribute to the Kenya 5-year strategy by reaching 15,500 OVC affected by HIV/AIDS and
training of 1000 caregivers.
4. LINKS TO OTHER ACTIVITIES
In many areas of OVC need we will be linking with other agencies. For health care each partner will find
available services in their area of operation. They will then refer OVC and care givers in need to the hospital
or clinic as required. Referrals will be made to local VCT centers in each location.
5. POPULATIONS BEING TARGETED
This project is narrowly focused on OVC and their care givers. The goal is to work primarily with HIV/AIDS
affected households, but care will be taken to not create stigma. To accomplish this work we will work
through community leaders, teachers, religious leaders and volunteers. CBO and FBO in the form of
churches and para church organizations will be the foundation of the project.
6. KEY LEGISLATIVE ISSUES ADDRESSED
Through the OVC project we will work with women care givers to provide economic activities. Wrap rounds
for food, micro credit and education are all interventions that will be carried out during the year as part of
supporting care givers and caring for OVC.
7. EMPHASIS AREAS
The major emphasis of the program will be information, education, communication, local organization
capacity development and minor emphasis will be community mobilization/participation and development of
