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
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.
FANTA III, operating at the central and provincial levels, aims to improve food and nutrition program design, implementation, and monitoring and evaluation for PLHIV and/or TB. FANTA accomplishes this through technical assistance to support the harmonization of strategies, guidelines, and manuals for food and nutrition interventions for PLHIV. FANTA will continue to strengthen food and nutrition interventions, and, in particular, improve the central and provincial health systems' capacity to treat moderate and severe acute malnutrition, in accordance with the PRN (Mozambique's Nutrition Rehabilitation Program), for PLHIV and OVC in USG-supported HIV care and treatment facilities. FANTA support to the Government of Mozambique (GOM) and PEPFAR clinical and community partners targets adults and children living with HIV, HIV-positive pregnant and lactating women, infants and young children (0-24 months) born to HIV-positive mothers, and OVC and their caregivers. FANTA will also improve national-level coordination working closely with the GOM's Department of Nutrition and its partners, as well as engaging in various Nutrition Technical Working Groups. FANTA supports activities, such as, the development of national guidelines for nutrition and HIV, design of a Social and Behavior Change Communication (SBCC) strategy for nutrition and HIV, implementation of quality improvement systems for facility-based nutrition counselling and services, and technical assistance to improve pre-service and in-service training of health professionals in the nutrition aspects of the care and treatment of PLHIV. FANTA will also integrate gender into nutrition and food security activities to improve women’s and children’s nutritional status and reduce their vulnerability to the impact of HIV.
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.
