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.

The Nigerian Alliance for Health System Strengthening (NAHSS) has five goals: 1) Assessment and strategic planning for sustainable health system strengthening; 2) Provide technical assistance to indigenous implementing partners (IPs) to align HIV program to comply with Nigerian National Guidelines; 3) Strengthen IP capacity to implement Hub-Spoke Cluster for decentralization of service delivery; 4) Bridge capacity of IPs and Government of Nigeria (GoN) for sustainable logistics and supply chain; 5) Develop capacity of GoN to plan and manage programs and investments on the path to sustainable transition. To achieve these goals University of Maryland (UMD) partners with HEALTHQUAL International, and three Nigerian indigenous organizations: Solina Health Ltd. (Health system assessment); General & Health Logistics International Ltd. (GHLI-L) (logistics management assessments and strengthening); and IHV-Nigeria (IHVN)(mentoring in quality improvement, and infrastructure support to the project). NAHSS is conceptually framed in the HEALTHQUAL Quality Management paradigm that engages both a Quality Management (Evidence-guided Quality Improvement) and a toolkit with broad application for data-driven problem solving to strengthen strategic planning and program management and guide continuous quality improvement (CQI).
UMB is required to continue providing technical assistance to the FMOH to be able to coordinate, regulate and provide oversight function on CQI activities across the country.
IP should implement strategies aimed at strengthening HIV CQI system at the MOH level in at least 2 states with emphasis of implementing reliable and sustainable National/State CQI task teams.
IP is required to support PEPFAR implementing partners to implement QA/QI program according to national guideline in at least all their secondary and tertiary health facilities
IP should support the FMOH set-up system for HIVQual data collection and reporting
IP should provide technical assistance to FMOH on the revision of the existing HIVQual software to a more user friendly version.
