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: 2010
This activity will: 1. Strengthen peer education on SRH in University of Nairobi (UON), United States International University (USIU) and Kenyatta University (KU), referred to as the universities by training an additional 150 new peer educators (PEs) and retraining 100 previously trained peer educators and equipping them with behavior change communication skills
2. Reach individuals in the universities and their surrounding communities with messages on prevention of HIV and unintended pregnancy, via radio messaging, thematic events, behavior change communication groups (BCCGs), promotional information materials and online social networks
3. Integrate SRH activities into existing HIV and AIDS prevention activities
4. Build the capacity of the universities (UON, USIU and KU) to carry out SRH interventions for students in the universities and enhance project sustainability
5. Assess effectiveness of integration of SRH activities in improving students utilization of services through strengthened monitoring and evaluation
This activity supports GHI/LLC and is completely funded with pipeline funds in this budget cycle.
FHI360 will continue to support ICL to provide HIV counseling and testing (HTC) targeting youth aged 18 years and above at Kenyatta University, University of Nairobi and United States International University.HTC will be provided as an entry to behavior change and identification of youth living with HIV for care and treatment referrals and support. HTC will be provided through mobile outreaches at the institutions in collaboration with trained ICL supported HTC service providers. HTC Clients will be followed up by ICL with risk reduction counseling, condom self-efficacy promotion and referrals for care and support to local comprehensive care centers offering youth friendly HIV treatment and care services. Youth living with HIV will be trained to promote HIV prevention with positives. HTC test kits will be provided by the District AIDS and STIs Coordinator (DASCO) through local health facilities.
Data on HTC including referral services will be collected through HTC registers to be provided by the DASCOs. Locally developed registers will be used to capture data on numbers of individuals trained as peer educators, BCC campus change agents and supervisors and individuals reached with BCC messages.
Support the capacity building of the University Health Staff to provide an integrated RH/HIV services including information and also develop a transition plan to ensure sustainability of the interventions [390 USD]
FHI 360 has collaborated with and built the capacity of I Choose Life (ICL) to reduce HIV, other sexually transmitted infections (STIs) and unintended pregnancies among youth in institutions of higher learning since 2005. This collaboration to advance the ABC approach for infection prevention and averting unintended pregnancies began at the University of Nairobi (UoN) and has now been scaled up to other universities. In addition, training of university health services staff in RH/HIV integration as well as breast and cervical cancer screening was recently added to the intervention package.
In the upcoming year, FHI 360 proposes to continue to collaborate with ICL to:
Support, strengthen and sustain peer education activities at University of Nairobi, United States International University, Daystar University and Kenyatta University campuses through peer education and behavior change communication activities (- train 150 on peer education, train 40 on BCC,100 on life skills & 25 as Campus Change Agents & supervisors, reach 30,000 individuals thro thematic events, reach 2,500 thro gender forums, broadcast SRH messages on 3 campus radio stations to reach 40,000 individuals, reach 6,000 through bulk text messages, print 10,000 copies of BCC materials, 20 BCCGs to reach 200 students, offer);
Build capacity of university health services staff to provide integrated RH/HIV services on campuses, including RH cancer screening, in collaboration with the MOH (train 10 service providers on breast & cervical cancer screening & supervision of services and provide these services and STI screening to 2,000 individuals, counsel and test 6,000 individuals & offer SRH services thro other collaborations to 5,000) ; and
Develop transition plans for sub recipient I Choose Life to sustain components of the intervention package in collaboration with the universities (initiate adopt-a-peer educator approach to reach 30 alumni; conduct 2 meetings with administrations of universities).
