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
Project Search Johns Hopkins University was funded in COP09 and COP10 (at a total of 1,000,000 (500,000 at each COP cycle) to implement an evaluation of the impact on behavior change and risk reduction of three PEPFAR funded implementing mechanisms around the reduction of multiple and concurrent partner reduction campaigns. JHU implemented the mid-term evaluation of the project in FY11 and released the findings of the evaluation. Overall the finding from the evaluation were positive, with changes in reported behaviors around the number of people counseled and tested and condom use. Additional analysis of the mid-term results are in process and additional secondary analysis will be released in November 2011. The end-of-project evaluation will take place in early FY13. Because of the pipeline from the last two fiscal years, there is no new funding for this activity in FY 12.
Project Search Johns Hopkins University was funded in COP09 and COP10 (at a total of 1,000,000 (500,000 at each COP cycle) to implement basic program evaluation activities that will primarily be focused on investigating the impact of general population abstinence and/or be faithful (AB), other prevention (OP) and most at risk populations (MARP) prevention intervention activities that USG Mozambique will be beginning in FY 2010. The primary objectives of this multi-prevention program evaluation are to quantify and qualify the impact of the newly developed prevention interventions on behavior change, normative behaviors, beliefs and attitudes that impact behavior change and attitudes towards HIV and sexual transmission practices for general populations and for MARP populations. Another primary goal of this program evaluation will be develop rigrous costing methodologies that will allow the USG and the government of Mozambique to have better estimates and projections around prevention interventions.
This activity will also provide data around multiple concurrent partnership reduction and other quantitative data related to general population and MARP activities, that will be used for baseline, target and ongoing program monitoring.
The evaluation will be a multi-province evaluation. The evaluation will first field test various methodological and logistical questions for feasibility. The evaluation may also include interviews and focus group sessions with participants of the multiple different types of prevention interventions that took place and would provide comparative impacts of different types of interventions with different populations.
