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 the NSP, the NDOH recognized the need to address growing HIV epidemics in the key populations of commercial sex workers (CSW), men who have sex with men (MSM), injecting drug users, and mobile populations However, South Africas ability to monitor progress towards meeting the targets for these populations has been hampered by poor coordination of program activity and lack of data. To date, there has been little coordination on inputs, outcome measures, and feedback of ethnographic, survey, and program monitoring and evaluation (M&E) data to understand the dynamics of these epidemics and to effectively allocate resources to the areas of greatest need among these high-risk populations. The strategy of this project is to work with local institutions to provide the training, technical assistance and long-term capacity building to improve the quality of HIVprevention interventions by enhancing local organizations capacity to conduct routine HIV surveillance and program M&E related to high-risk, underserved populations of MSM, IDU, and SW; and to utilize surveillance and M&E data to guide planning, program improvements and allocation of resources for these populations. The proposed project will build local institutional capacity to sustainably reduce HIV transmission and improve the capacity for collecting and using high-quality data among high risk populations. In addition, UCSF will also be implementing a Public-Private Partnership (PPP) with the Gates Foundation targeting HIV prevention activities among truck drivers and commercial sex workers along one high volume trucking corridor in South Africa by conducting the baseline assessment including mapping, population size estimations and a bio-behavioral survey in the target geographic area.
This is Year 2 of a surveillance activity targeting high risk populations including mapping, population size estimation, and bio-behavioral surveillance. FY 2011 activities for UCSF focused on female commercial sex workers include baseline assessments and community mapping, stakeholder sensitization and buy-in, protocol and tool development, ethical clearance, training for study team members and data collection in two sites. In year two, FY 2012 data collection will take place at two additional surveillance sites including HIV and STI testing and a behavioral interview for each participant.
In addition, UCSF will also be implementing Year 2 surveillance activities truck drivers and commercial sex workers along one high volume trucking corridor in South Africa by conducting a bio-behavioral survey including HIV and STI biomarkers and a behavioral survey among these two populations in the targeted geographic area.
