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.
Subdivisions of Program Areas, these track general higher level sub-classifications of expenditure.
Subdivisions of Major categories, these are the most detailed expenditure data.
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
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.

The FHI UJANA project's goal is to contribute to the USG and GOT aims of reducing or averting HIV infections among youth ages 10-24. The project objectives are to: 1) assist youth to reduce their risk of HIV infection; 2) build social and community support for HIV prevention; and 3) strengthen capacity and coordination of youth programs. UJANA works to build the capacity of over 50 local non-governmental organizations (NGOs) as implementing partners in the project. In addition, UJANA has a wide range of technical assistance partners for specific focus areas, including Instituto Promundo (gender norms), NOPE (peer education), Pact (economic empowerment) and Grassroots Soccer (sports). Strategic partners include AMREF (youth-friendly services) and Femina Hip (popular youth-focused magazines, radio and TV). UJANA works to ensure that its partners implement evidence-based programming, through the application of global best practices and utilization of local research results, rapid assessments, and lessons learned.
UJANA contributes to health systems strengthening efforts through its focus on concerted capacity building of local NGOs and its continuing support of the youth-led ISHI campaign (a strategic youth-driven approach that relies on partnerships with youth and local NGOs and is led by over 500 youth volunteers). UJANA undertakes management and technical capacity building of its implementing partners and holds regular youth program coordination committee meetings. In addition, UJANA promotes use of its quality materials by a wide range of partners, including behavior change materials for youth, curricula and manuals, and peer education tools. UJANA works closely with the GOT in youth-related HIV prevention efforts. This includes collaboration with the MOHSW on peer education standards, with the MOEVT on a teachers training college assessment, with TACAIDS on THMIS youth results, and with the regional Iringa government on the development of an Iringa HIV strategy.
This program contributes to the Partnership Framework goal on Prevention. UJANA implements quality HIV prevention behavior change programs for youth, focusing on inter-personal communication and community mobilization efforts. Activities focus on raising risk perception of and building skills of youth, and address key drivers of the epidemic, including multiple concurrent partnerships, transactional and cross-generational sex, alcohol use, and low condom use. In addition to youth-focused efforts, UJANA works with communities to engage influential adults in efforts to raise awareness and build the skills of youth on HIV prevention and promote improved adult-child communication related to sexual and reproductive health (RH) matters. UJANA also focuses on addressing harmful gender norms, promoting gender equity, addressing gender-based violence, and linking young women with economic strengthening activities. In addition to successfully adapting Instituto Promundo's Program H and Program M manuals, UJANA works with Pact on young women and livelihoods, has integrated HIV prevention into traditional initiation activities for girls, and will begin a "safe schools" initiative for reducing gender-based violence in and around schools. Finally, UJANA works closely and deliberately with other USG prevention partners to ensure that efforts are coordinated, and that mass media and inter-personal communication is closely aligned.
UJANA aims to become more cost-efficient over time through its close coordination with other partners and its increasing use of local partners. HIV prevention programs are more effective and efficient through focusing on those at highest risk, addressing key drivers of the epidemic, and ensuring consistent messages are used by all partners. In addition, UJANA aims to help OVC partners better and more strategically integrate HIV prevention activities into their OVC portfolios.
UJANA has national reach (all mainland regions plus Zanzibar and Pemba), but focuses on higher prevalence regions of Dar es Salaam, Iringa, Coast and Morogoro). The Ishi campaign has activities in at least one district in all regions. UJANA has shifted focus over the years to ensure higher risk youth are targeted. Local partners work with in-school youth (15-24), high-risk youth (drug users, sex workers, OVC, youth working on plantations), and/or out-of-school youth. Youth aged 10-14 make up a smaller but sizeable portion of those targeted.
Given the increasing emphasis on supporting the implementation, management, and monitoring of activities through local partner organizations, UJANA will place additional focus on building technical and organizational capacity, through supportive supervision and monitoring of performance through the use of established performance quality standards. All UJANA partners receive targeted capacity building in technical, financial, and monitoring and evaluation areas through on-site technical visits, regular communications, review and feedback on monthly financial and program reports, and sharing of data collection tools and technical resources.
1)Intergrate prevention and RH services to OVC. 2) Provide technical assistance to OVC Implementing Partners on the intergration of prevention services 3) Review OVC partners' current manuals and develop guidelines for the delivery of age-appropriate life skills/HIV prevention information.

Maintain quality HIV prevention programs for youth in line with USG priorities, including a focus on key epidemic drivers, gender norms, and strengthening community activities. Partner works closely with key GOT ministries and builds the capacity of over 55 local partners through sub-grants and continuous capacity building efforts. Additional funds will be used to off-set ending of Track 1 ABY programs, and expand work in highest prevalence regions, with highest risk youth. National, with work in all districts in Dar/Iringa, 3-5 districts in Morogoro/Coast/ Kilimanjaro, 2 districts in Mwanza/Mtwara, Zanzibar, and at least 1 district per other region.
