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.

In COP12 MEASURE Evaluation will continue to strengthen the national HIV/AIDS M&E system and transition in-country project activities in a sustainable manner. Objectives are to support: (1) the RBC/IHDPC in the development of the National HIV/AIDS Strategic Plan (the NSP will be the basis for Rwanda's development of follow-on applications to the Global Fund for National Strategy Applications (NSA)); and, (2) the Ministry of Health to develop a long-term HIV M&E Capacity Building Strategy. Support will include the development of the final NSP document, the national HIV M&E Plan and accompanying operational plans. MEASURE Evaluation will also provide RBC/IHDPC with a strategic planning toolkit containing resource documents for planning mid-term reviews (MTRs) and NSPs.
MEASURE Evaluation will also support the MOH to develop a HIV M&E Capacity Building Strategy and HIV M&E Systems Manual. The capacity plans development will include a situational analysis of current HIV program M&E capacity, including an assessment of the impact of MEASURE Evaluations investment in building Rwandas national M&E capacity, current gaps in M&E human resource capacity, and the way forward for GOR after the departure of MEASURE Evaluation and other USG implementing partners currently supporting HIV M&E. The strategy will be focused on HIV M&E, based on the projects experiences building HIV M&E capacity but developed in a manner to allow adaptation to other disease/health system responses. The strategy will emphasize increasing data use for planning, program design and management. The accompanying M&E Systems Manual will document the HIV M&E system.
No vehicles have been purchased under this IM, nor will any be purchased in COP12.
In COP09 and COP10, MEASURE Evaluation supported Rwandas National AIDS Commission to develop the HIV/AIDS National Strategic Plan (NSP) 2009-12, National HIV/AIDS M&E Plan, and accompanying Operational Plans. In COP 12, MEASURE Evaluation will continue capacity-building with key GOR officials and other stakeholders throughout the NSP development process. MEASURE Evaluation will support central-level activities associated with NSP development, validation, and dissemination of the NSP at the national level. The development of the final NSP document, the national HIV M&E Plan and accompanying operational plans will also be supported. During COP12 MEASURE Evaluation will also provide RBC/IHDPC with a strategic planning toolkit containing resource documents for national stakeholders planning an MTR or an NSP and including practical documents such as: terms of reference for consultants and national technical working groups, protocols, roadmaps, templates for meeting minutes, and data collection tools.
In COP12, MEASURE Evaluation will build from these experiences to develop a HIV M&E Capacity Building Strategy and HIV M&E Systems Manual. Strategy development will include a situational analysis of current M&E human resource capacity, including an assessment of the impact of MEASURE Evaluations investment in building national M&E capacity, current gaps in M&E human resource capacity, and the GORs way forward after MEASURE Evaluations closeout and other USG implementing partners currently supporting HIV M&E. The strategy will be focused on HIV M&E, based on the projects experiences building HIV M&E capacity in Rwanda but developed in a manner to allow adaptation to other disease responses. The strategy will emphasize increasing data use. MEASURE Evaluation staff will also conduct advocacy events with GOR and other organizations to support the implementation of the strategy upon MEASURE Evaluations close out.
