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.
>>New Narrative for Oct 2011 Reprogramming: This Associate Award allows continuation of critical activities initiated under Health Systems 20/20 Leader award (due to end in September 2012 with activities winding down in July 2012).
In Namibia, the Assosciate Award will be focused to improve health system performance largely in four key areas (1) health financing, (2) Human Resources for health, (3) Health information systems (largely organizational development aspects) and (4) governance and (5)operations. The project team brings together an exceptional pool of professionals with depth and experience in capacity building, governance, finance and operations.
Health system strengthening is a key element of the Global Health Initiative and Partnership Framework. This associate award is committed to country ownership, institutionalization, and the development of local capacity to ensure sustainability of activities initiated under the agreement. Furthermore, the Award will continue its ongoing efforts in Namibia to strengthen human resources for health (HRH) planning, governance, and financial management of the health system including HIV/AIDS, three important components of the Partnership Framework. By the nature of these activities, they directly contribute to GHI focus areas of transition, increasing domestic financing, equitable resource allocation, and sustainability.
The Associate Award will work at the national level with government officials (MOHSS, Social Security Commission)and civil society stakeholders. By supporting the GRN in developing its staffing norms, HRH planning capacibitilites, the Associate Award will also target the cross-cutting issue of HRH strengthening.
The Associate Award's work aligns with PEPFAR's cost-efficiency principles by str
>>New Narrative for Oct 2011 Reprogramming: The following represent continuing activities from the HS 20/20 award:
1. Technical support in the area of health care financing, specifically a) to the MOHSS to develop and implement an equitable resource allocation formula, b) to the Social Security Commission regarding its intention to roll out national Health insurance, c) to the MOHSS to develop a health care financing strategy, d) to the MOHSS to conduct costing studies and to develop a process/system for conducting and updating future costing exercises within the Ministry (one that builds upon the expenditure tracking systems). Strengthening MOHSS's capacity in costing will enable them to ensure that new policies and guidelines can be sufficiently financed and effectively implemented. In addition, the Associate Award will continue to provide technical support on NHA specifically to the MOHSS regarding recent methodological revisions to the International Classification of Health Accounts (ICHA), priority area subaccounts, and institutionalization of expenditure tracking and the National Health Accounts Framework. This will equip MOHSS with necessary data to advocate for more GRN health investments during budget negotiations.
2. Organizational development support for the establishment of a new directorate on health information systems at the MoHSS that will build and sustain information systems that make data easier to maintain, access, and use for policy purposes.
3. Technical support to the MoHSS on HRH planning, restructuring, workload assessment and staffing norms.
