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: 2012
Links for Children is a five-year project to improve services and support to OVC in 3 States: Bauchi, Kaduna and Katsina. The project will expand access to treatment services, and care and support for 11,950 orphans and vulnerable children; and training on care and support for 2,620 caregivers and 384 Child Protection Committee members. In COP 2012, project activities will focus on care and support for 6,250 OVC and training of 600 caregivers and 70 CPC members in three states, Bauchi, Kaduna and Katsina. This project will focus on one technical area of support: Support to OVC.
Key Project Outcome Indicators at end of COP 2012: 1) ARFH and 18 CSO partners (6 in each state) have completed an organizational assessment and development plan; 2) 6,250 children will receive support in areas of education, economic, psychosocial, or protection; and 600 caregivers and 70 CPC members will receive training. 3) One training for state government agencies will be conducted in three states. Particular attention will be paid to building economic stability of households so that parents and caregivers are able to provide for their children's long term needs; retaining children in school, and working with local governments to establish strong child welfare and protection systems. Additionally, during youth club sesions, older/adolescent OVC will receive life planning education on gender-based violence and sexual coercion to shape them to meeting the challenges of growing up into adulthood.

The project will enroll and support an additional 6,250 new children (OVC), while continuing to maintain the previous 5,900 children currently enrolled from the previous year. Children involvement will be closely facilitated, documented and reported through the kids club activities in the 3 states. A team meeting will be held inthe second quarter to discuss achievements and lessons learned as a team; to further refine the projects technical and strategic approach; to finalize the state work plans for COP 13 .LINKS will see the roll-out of the Economic Strengthening (Savings and Loan) activities.
