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: 2012
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.
Kenya Medical Supplies Agency (KEMSA) is a customer-focused integrated medical logistics provider for all public health facilities in Kenya. As a State Corporation, KEMSA is a secure source of value-for-money drugs and other medical supplies to over 5,000 facilities. KEMSA has also received substantial TA and support from USAID in human resource capacity building through the deployment of key advisors in areas of business development, procurement, IT and supply chain management. With USAID support, KEMSA has invested in an effective Enterprise Resource Planning (ERP) system that has led to the full automation and integration of KEMSA operations and overall business processes, resulting in greater efficiency and improved service delivery. KEMSA's fully automated central warehouse in Nairobi is now functioning under the platform of a Warehouse Module System hosted by the ERP. This has significantly improved efficiency in inventory management and processing of health facilities requirements. KEMSA has successfully implemented the Framework Contract system, and all current procurements are aligned to KEMSA’s strategic and business plan with enhanced visibility of all health care commodities in the supply chain. Currently KEMSA has a total allocation of $60 million for essential medical supplies, approximately $85 million for programs such as HIV, malaria and tuberculosis. KEMSA has been appointed as the procurement agent for the GFATM R10 procurements, and the USG is confident that KEMSA is ready to start handling some PEPFAR commodities. The program develops a Performance Monitoring Plan (PMP) on a yearly basis which will be reviewed with the partner during quarterly meetings to ensure that targets are being met.
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.
This mechanism has no published performance targets or indicators.
