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: 2011
NOTE: The following is taken from summaries released by PEPFAR on the PEPFAR Data Dashboard. They are incomplete summary paragraphs only and do not contain the full mechanism details. When the full narratives are released, we will update the mechanism pages accordingly.
While the Kenya health sector has made major strides including devolution of services, a number of systemic issues still persist. The Kenya health sector policies outline the need for Kenyans to have sustainable access to and appropriate use of safe, effective, quality medicines and other health technologies as envisioned in the Kenya constitution. Improving access to health commodities remains key to achieving the health outcomes for HIV prevention, care and treatment and is priority for both the Kenya Ministry of Health and USG/PEPFAR.
MSH/HCSM will provide technical assistance to the MoH at the national level and also selected counties on supply chain issues, management and use of HIV/AIDS commodities and related services. MSH/HCSM will support MOH and stakeholders to develop and implement relevant policies, strategies, guidelines, and tools for commodities management of HIV and related services.
To ensure efficiencies, MSH/HCSM will seek collaboration with other partners, leverage resources for targeted interventions during implementation to improve access to health commodities. Through the system strengthening approach, MSH/HCSM will identify opportunities for integration of activities, as well as strengthen linkages with other health service delivery areas.
To build local ownership and ensure handover to MoH for sustainability, MSH/HCSM will build the capacity of MoH staff at national and county levels in providing stewardship for health commodity management. As such, MSH/HCSM will ensure joint planning, implementation and monitoring with MoH counterparts at national and county level using commonly agreed indicators for progress on improving access and use of health commodities.
Since COP2014, PEPFAR no longer produces narratives for every mechanism it funds. However, PEPFAR has now included performance targets or indicator information for each mechanism based on the Monitoring, Evaluation, and Reporting (MER) system. The MER guidance is available on PEPFAR's website https://www.pepfar.gov/reports/guidance/. Note that COP years 2014-2015 were under a previous version of the MER system and the indicators and definitions may have changed as of the new 2.0 guidance.
