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.
LIFT will provide support to USAID/Nigeria and their OVC implementing partners in the following areas: (1) targeted, direct technical assistance (TA) to address immediate capacity gaps in household economic strengthening (HES) programs and improve the quality of existing programs; and (2) developing a technical toolkit for HES activities that will enable program implementers to draw on appropriate resources to implement or link to effective HES interventions.
LIFT has previously provided ongoing technical support to USAID OVC implementers through rapid assessments of OVC implementers and their technical capacity and TA needs, and provided a broad training in economic strengthening for OVC implementers. Through this assessment LIFT identified village savings and loan associations (VLSAs) as a core area for additional support and provided training in VSLA design and implementation.
Building off the previous technical assistance, LIFT will provide targeted training that meets the previously identified technical capacity needs. LIFT will develop a toolkit that enables USAID/PEPFAR implementing partners to make their own decisions and design programs with their own resources. LIFT will also support information and knowledge sharing among LIFT, USAID/PEPFAR, its partners, other donors and the GON. LIFT will also look into the possibility of developing or supporting an online platform to provide tools and e-learning materials to partners.
LIFT will build on its ongoing technical assistance to USAID/Nigeria OVC implementing partners by developing and delivering targeted training that meets previously identified technical capacity needs. Training will focus on M&E and impact assessment of HES interventions for OVC, and implementation of high-quality provision interventions and other technical areas identified in coordination with the USAID/Nigeria mission. Training will ensure that OVC implementers have the technical capacity to assess and categorize household vulnerability and assets which informs the development of appropriate economic strengthening interventions.
LIFT will develop a toolkit that enables USAID/PEPFAR implementing partners to identify appropriate HES program area to meet OVC needs, and design interventions with their own resources. LIFT will support linkages between OVC programs and economic strengthening interventions, including increasing the capacity of economic strengthening partners to deliver services to OVC and their caregivers. LIFT will also support information and knowledge sharing among LIFT, USAID/PEPFAR, its partners, other donors and the GON and enhance online learning platforms to make resources more accessible.
