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.
ACTIVITY HAS BEEN MODIFIED IN THE FOLLOWING WAYS:
Due to the lack of connectivity or access to internet it will be important to provide an alternative method of
accessing the database for service providers who suffer such constraints. An SMS text service is proposed
to enable specific choices to be identified for a specific area.
PC will continue to develop the database to its fullest extent and will work with key stakeholders such as the
Department of Social Development (DOSD) and DOE to ensure that caregivers of OVC are informed about
and given access to the database.
Monitoring and Evaluation:
The OVC policy and guidelines include indicators that should be collected to ensure that the implementation
of relevant activities is effective. PC will review the project tools for monitoring the project indicators to
ensure that the correct data is being captured and recorded correctly. Continued communication with key
stakeholders will also ensure broader strategic use of the directory.
PC will conduct training to ensure the successful transfer of the database and its maintenance to a local
partner. Documentation, models and manuals as well as appropriate instruction will be provided so that the
partner is fully informed of regular input and maintenance activities and is aware of how to anticipate the
scope of possible areas of concern. Specific areas of training would include, but not be limited to, the design
of the database, physical data model, configuration management, database maintenance, and support
In collaboration with the South African government (SAG), FY 2008 PEPFAR funds will be used to support
a service availability mapping exercise that will allow organizations to be able to locate all necessary HIV
and AIDS related services they may need in order to strengthen their own care and treatment service
delivery. This service availability mapping exercise of districts and sub-districts will assist home-based
caregivers, volunteers, community-based organizations, faith-based organizations and public health
facilities to provide referrals efficiently in order for clients to access services closest to their household.
USAID/South Africa recognizes the need to be aware of available services and resources in order to identify
gaps, avoid duplication and to maximize collaboration and linkages with other stakeholders and partners.
This activity will include mapping of the essential services available from the South African Government, for
example Home Affairs for birth certificates and identification documents, legal-aid centers for land disputes
and inheritance issues, Social Development for access to grants, Rape Centers for access to post exposure
prophylaxis (PEP), and ART treatment sites for access to pediatric and adult treatment, etc. Mapping
provides a means of organizing local knowledge through the common language of geography and visual
representation. Through a participatory process, local knowledge can be gathered, integrated, represented,
and shared. Maps can then act as a basis for community discussion, empowerment, and decision-making.
A service provider to implement this activity will be selected in October 2007.
Primary emphasis will be on local capacity building and the development of network referrals and
Information, Education and Communication. The final product, a directory of services, will be used widely
both by PEPFAR supported partners as well as the SAG and other organizations that provide HIV and AIDS
services in South Africa. This booklet will be shared widely through the HIV and AIDS networks and forums
in South Africa.
The primary target populations for the intervention include OVC, people living with HIV and AIDS and the
general population aged over 25 years.
The South Africa PEPFAR program embarked on a geographical information systems (GIS) mapping
activity in FY 2005. These maps have proven a valuable tool for planning and coordinating activities within
and across partners. However, to date, these maps only show PEPFAR supported services, as well as SAG
ART services. The USG Team would like to take this mapping down to a community level to improve
service delivery on the ground. This activity will strengthen referrals and linkages between government
departments, NGOs, civil society groups and HIV and AIDS service providers through sharing and
dissemination of information on the availability and location of essential services in South Africa.
ACTIVITIES AND EXPECTED RESULTS:
A directory of organizations providing HIV and AIDS related services in South Africa will provide a useful
guide to the many agencies and organizations working to address the critical challenges faced by HIV and
AIDS in South Africa. There is a need for a comprehensive database of organizations working with and for
HIV-infected and affected individuals in South Africa. In 2001 a directory of Child HIV and AIDS services
was published by the Department of Social Development in collaboration with Save UK and UNICEF. In
addition, service availability mapping was completed in the Eastern Cape province during the former USAID
equity project. These directories are now out of date, however they will be used as the starting point to
establish a district map of the services and key service providers will be added. The availability mapping
exercise will inform all those concerned about HIV and AIDS, especially the partners funded by PEPFAR, of
the various services and initiatives available to assist them and to strengthen their efforts to support HIV-
infected individuals and their families. This directory will be user-friendly and will facilitate smooth referrals
and encourage linkages. The service directory will also enable organizations to better utilize services that
are available, facilitate new partnerships to address the gaps in service delivery and encourage a multi-
agency approach to assisting individual infected by HIV, their families and their communities. This activity
would begin in three of the provinces and will then be replicated in all nine provinces of South Africa. In
addition, this directory will be linked to GIS data points for more interactive usage of the directory and to
Activity Narrative: produce various maps.
This activity will contribute to the success of the following objectives of the SAG's National Strategic Plan; to
develop and implement mechanisms to identify, track and link OVC and child-headed households to grants,
benefits and social services at local levels and to increase the proportion of vulnerable children accessing
social grants, benefits and services.
