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.
Years of mechanism: 2005
Based on the EP ‘Staffing for Results' exercises conducted in collaboration with OGAC for FY 2008, CDC is
proposing to increase staff within technical areas by adding six new positions. Specifically, the office is
proposing to recruit a HIV/AIDS Treatment Specialist (2846), a TB/HIV Specialist (2846), a Systems
Strengthening & Policy Officer (16764), a Senior Program Manager, Prevention Services Expert (2844), and
a Monitoring and Evaluation Specialist (2848), to better support the implementation of EP activities. The
CDC will also fill the existing Chief of Party and Epidemiologist positions. In addition to personnel costs, this
activity includes equipment and services to support general office operating expenses. In line with CDC's
consolidation of IT services, the program will purchase services from the new ITSO Infrastructure Services
Support package in order to improve operational effectiveness and efficiency.
