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: 2010
Continuing mechanism, zero-funded in FY12. The size of the Malawis Social Welfare Workforce (SWWF) is largely unknown and SWWF challenges and priorities in Malawi are widely acknowledged by the Ministry of Gender, Children and Community Developments (MOGCCD) and stakeholders. There exists skills and needs competency mismatches at the front-line, reduced numbers in post, no clear career progression, etc. At the workforce system level, there are gaps relating to the planning, collaboration, coordination, implementation and impact monitoring between agencies and stakeholders with a broad range of Child Protection and social welfare workforce issues that require a skilled and comprehensive workforce that can respond to the vulnerabilities children face. In 2008, USAID through Southern Africa Human Capacity Development Project (SAHCD) and UNICEF provided technical assistance (TA) to the MoGCCD to conduct a Human Resources gap analysis and developed a capacity building plan to implement the recommendations of that analysis. Through PEPFAR, computers to facilitate establishment of a full and running HRIS system were provided to MoGCCD,Magomero Training School was upgraded and a social work curriculum finalized. Through CapacityPlus, PEPFAR will continue SAHCDs efforts by responding to Malawis SWWF action plan developed in December 2010. Critical activities will include development of a mid to long term SWWF Action plan focused on support to Magomero Training College to facilitate intake of the 1st class of social workers, workforce system planning and system strengthening in line with the priorities as identified in close collaboration with UNICEF, MoGCCD and other stakeholders.
