HHS/CDC/South Africa office was responsible for the obligation of about over $140,000,000 in PEPFAR

funding. In FY 2008, this amount will increase to roughly over $220,000,000. CDC staff also has oversight

responsibility for al most $30,000,000 of Health Resources and Service Administration (HRSA) projects.

Staff responsibilities include monitoring design, implementation, and evaluation of funded activities;

providing technical direction and assistance to assure that activities are implemented in accordance with

OGAC technical guidance; and working closely with in-country and international partners to assure synergy

and avoid duplication. Staff participate actively in the Inter-Agency Task Force to design the overall

comprehensive PEPFAR program that meets the needs of South Africa and OGAC. Moreover, HHS/CDC

staff participate in Technical Working Groups (TWG) of the Task Force that work to coordinate all partners

in a particular technical area to ensure complementary and synergistic activities. Staff is also regularly

tasked to participate in ad hoc working groups to address specific issues as they arise.
