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.
Years of mechanism: 2010
Funds will be used to build capacity of MOHSW-NACP through technical assistance from USG agencies on ART Data Quality Assesments ; this is important for informing the progress of the intervention for HIV Care services and use of data for decision making and proper forecasting and budgeting of ART supplies in Tanzania. *$200k has been moved to SI for DQA
UCSF will provide technical assistance to TACAIDS and MOHSW and support data synthesis activities to identify the drivers of HIV/AIDS epidemic and the impact of prevention responses at national and regional levels. UCSF will provide technical assistance to TACAIDS on secondary data analysis of THIS and THMIS.
UCSF will support NACP on establishing the data quality system. NACP will develop national data quality guideline. The guideline will document NACP's data quality vision, definition and concepts, applicable at facility, district, regional and national levels. The guidelines will stipulate standardized procedures and tools which shall be employed at all aspects of data quality assessment in routine data recording, reporting, storage, aggregation, use and dissemination and provide a platform for M&E capacity building and system strengthening for HIV/AIDS M&E in Tanzania.
DQA will be done through investigating both the USG/Partner reporting data flow as well as the GoT/NACP/Region/District data flow with specific partners assigned clearly for the public sector and civil society sectors. Initial step has already been started by contacting one local partner to carry out some DQA activities for some select regions.
In addition, UCSF will do curriculum development for M&E program for district health workers to address challenges facing district M&E issues. This will provide access to certificate, diploma and master's program. FY 11 is less than FY 10 by 60% in line with total SI reduction and some of the activities were completed in FY10
Develop a sustainable training program in Tanzania based on the Tulane/Jimma model. This program will train health M&E specialists at a masters degree level on a regular basis in country in order to address the need for this cadre within the health system. The course will be established based on the assessment findings conducted in the last fiscal year and will be hosted at a Tanzanian local university that will be suitable as per the assessment recommendations. This funding will support preliminary set- up for the course including development of curriculum materials and tutors' orientation. In the following years the program will provide scholarships to a few students to support the continuation of the program.
