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 entry is a continuation of FY 06 Activity ID 6419 and represents the second phase of that assessment.
Data indicate that areas of Mozambique with lower rates of male circumcision correspond to higher HIV prevalence. If the remaining international randomized controlled trials confirm that male circumcision reduces HIV transmission, then male circumcision could be a relevant prevention intervention for Mozambique. This funding will allow consultants to continue work with the Ministry of Health to assess the current state of male circumcision services in Mozambique, including training needed to ensure safety of services, potential public and private sector options for expanding services, indications of demand for services in areas where male circumcion is not already prevalent, and issues that would need to be addressed in order to prevent condom migration or other unintended effects of male circumcision activities.
It is expected that the remaining randomized controlled trials will conclude in calendar year 2007. If results are positive, normative bodies such as the World Health Organization and UNAIDS will issue recommendations and guidelines for countries regarding male circumcision. Results of this assessment will provide information for the Ministry of Health and other stakeholders in considering potential next steps, such as training of health workers and public health messages.
The assessment will follow guidelines and use tools developed by the Emergency Plan task force on medical circumcision.
