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: 2005
This is a continuing activty from FY 2007.
World Relief's "Mobilizing Youth for Life" project aims to 1) engage youth in interactive learning to establish
standards of sexual protection, 2) equip influential adults to guide youth in making wise life choices, and 3)
obtain commitments to abstinence before marriage and fidelity in marriage from youth aged 10-24 years
old. Since the project's inception in March 2004, World Relief has reached over 730,800 youth through a
combination of activities in over 2,380 churches, 520 schools, 684 clubs and other community settings.
Over the past four years, the project expanded its activities into all 30 districts making it a national HIV
prevention and stigma reduction program. With FY 2007 funding, World Relief focused in the 20
CHF/CHAMP districts, ensuring an integrated approach and coverage, with supplemental funding from EP
supporting activities in the remaining 10 districts. Activities included support to the young people who had
already made a commitment to abstinence as well as promoting and seeking commitments to abstinence
for other youth. World Relief trained 8,052 youth leaders, pastors, peer educators and teachers using the
Choose Life curriculum to reach youth with abstinence only messages. World Relief incorporated an alcohol
and GBV approach into their programming, emphasizing the role of alcohol use in facilitating the
transmission of HIV.
In FY 2008, World Relief will train and refresh all the youth influencers (church leaders, teachers, youth
leaders and peer educators) to reach 40,000 new youth with AB messages through churches, youth
rehabilitation centers and schools. They will also focus efforts on supporting the youth who have already
committed to abstinence. Family focused activities such as youth and parent forums that encourage
intergenerational discussion on HIV prevention will also be supported. World Relief will continue to use
mass media (radio and video spots) to reach out to the community. FY 2008 is the last year of funding for
World Relief under Track 1.0. Using master training of trainers and capacity building workshops on program
planning and M&E, World Relief will ensure that local partners can continue the work carried out over the
last few years. An end of project evaluation will be conducted to measure the overall effectiveness of the
program and the results will be used to inform future programming.
