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.

South Africa HIV Counseling and Testing (HCT) Data Use for Program Planning
CDC South Africa has amassed a huge amount of monitoring data on its HIV counseling and testing (HCT) program and assisted the South African Government (SAG) in the establishment and scale-up of a number of national HCT initiatives. In order to better maximize existing HCT information to inform PEPFAR and SAG programs, UCSF proposes to conduct an HCT strategic planning exercise using existing data for PEPFAR and South African Government.
The primary objectives of this project are the following:
1. Conduct a synthesis and analysis of all available PEPFAR partner HCT data as well as other USG data sources when appropriate. The purpose of this activity is to better describe trends in HCT support in South Africa to inform future priority and resource allocation.
2. Conduct an HCT data use exercise utilizing existing and available SAG, PEPFAR, and other partner monitoring data
3. Increase in-country capacity of CDC and NDOH South Africa staff and other relevant stakeholders in all area
This funding is to continue conducting a synthesis and analysis of PEPFAR and SAG HCT data for strategic planning.
