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: 2014
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.
USAID/Namibia has a clear vision for its role in transitioning PEPFAR to an innovative TA program that protects USG investments in Namibia’s national multi-sectoral HIV response, working in partnership with the GRN to address policy and programmatic challenges. This mechanism is a follow on with Jhpiego, continuing previous MCHIP work. The objectives are to expand access to and quality of integrated HIV/SRH and health extension services for vulnerable populations, including adolescents and young adults. This aligns with PEPFAR’s Blueprint outcome on identifying and achieving efficiencies that reduce costs and build sustainable national HIV responses, the Partnership Framework, National Strategic Framework for HIV/AIDS and the Global Health Initiative. The mechanism will deliver TA at the national and sub-national level to support the Ministry of Health (MOHSS) in HIV/SRH integration in primary health care (PHC) and institutionalization of the health extension program (HEP), including the integration of HIV and TB into the HEP. HEP is a domestically financed effort to increase access to services at the community level. Jhpiego will work with local organizations to strengthen their capacity to implement high quality integrated HIV services. Joint planning, supervision and monitoring will build government institutional capacity for HEP and HIV/SRH integration. Cost efficiency is gained by integrating HIV/SRH services in PHC and by providing a comprehensive health package at the community level. To assure sustainability, HEP training will transition to GRN training institutions by 2016. REDACTED
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.
