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
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.
This mechanism will not be funded in thebudget year.
Strengthening Institutional Capacity for the Delivery of Integrated HIV/AIDS Services in Nigeria (SICDHAN) is a Health Systems Strengthening Program of the Federal Ministry of Health (FMoH). SICDHAN aims to improve the capacity of the Federal Ministry of Health (FMoH) to coordinate the delivery of integrated HIV/AIDS services for all Nigerians through evidence-based policy, planning, monitoring and feedback. Specific Objectives of SICDHAN include:
• Creation of a comprehensive and robust Human Resource for Health Information System (HRIS) database that is updated regularly and informs service delivery planning at all levels.
• Strengthening key health professional regulatory bodies to review curricula and standardize continuing education programs for health professionals delivering HIV/AIDS and other services.
• Strengthening the National Health Research Ethics Committee (NHREC) to guide and evaluate HIV/AIDS research in Nigeria for the protection of human subjects.
• Establishment of a network of reference public health laboratories for Quality Assurance and conduct of advanced HIV/AIDS and other laboratory tests.
• Support generation of Strategic Information on HIV/AIDS through strengthening of Monitoring and Evaluation, and Surveillance activities for improved planning and implementation of the health sector response to the HIV/AIDS epidemic and meet international obligations.
• Support formulation and implementation of policies towards improved access to HIV and AIDS services in Nigeria.
The SICDHAN project is being implemented primarily through three (3) divisions in FMOH:
• HIV/AIDS Division (HAD)
• Nigerian Center for Disease Control (NCDC)
• Department of Health Planning, Research and Statistics (DHPRS)
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.
