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.

Family Health International (FHI) implements Pamoja Tuwalee, a five-year cooperative agreement that aims to improve the quality of life and well-being of OVC and their households by empowering households and communities to provide care and support. The projects objectives are to increase the capacity of communities and local governments to meet the needs of OVC and their households; increase the capacity of households to protect, care for and meet the basic needs of OVC; increase OVC household access to comprehensive services; and empower OVC, particularly females, to contribute to their own well-being. The program operates in 25 districts in the Coast Zone, targeting 43,000 OVC and their households. The project also contributes to the first goal of the Partnership Framework, which aims to maintain and scale-up services to reduce morbidity and mortality and improve the lives of Tanzanians affected by HIV/AIDS. It also supports the Global Health Initiative Immediate Result 1, relating to increased access to quality maternal, child, and reproductive health services.
Using sustainable approaches such as promotion of local ownership and strengthening of LGA and communities will ensure cost efficiency over time as these entities gain capacity to implement program interventions with less external support. Key structures to be strengthened include LGAs, most vulnerable childrens committees (MVCCs), and 10 civil society organizations that will deliver services at the community-level. FHI will monitor program implementation as addressed in the M&E plan, as well as report progress to the national OVC data management system. In addition, FHI will support LGA to conduct supportive supervision through field visits at the various levels.
Family Health International (FHI) is an international organization that has implemented Pamoja Tuwalee in Dar es Salaam, Zanzibar, and the Coast Zone since 2010. The program aims to improve the quality of life and the well-being of OVC and their households by empowering households and communities to provide comprehensive, sustainable care, and support. The key program strategies primarily support the USG/T priorities of increasing the capacities of households and communities and strengthening linkages between services. FHIs key strategies include improving integration of the program with other health and social service initiatives to increase sustainability and empowering key stakeholders to meet their own needs. These major activities respond to critical gaps in the national OVC response, specifically weaknesses in local capacity and ownership. In particular, FHI will strengthen the capacity of 15 local government authorities (LGAs) to implement the National Costed Plan of Action by facilitating incorporation of MVC activities and budget allocations into the Medium Term Expenditure Framework, a mechanism that guides budgeting and planning at local levels. Furthermore, the program will support improved collection, management, and use of data captured in the national OVC database.
FHI will train and support local civil society organizations to deliver services to vulnerable children. Collaborating with various partners, the project will link beneficiaries to specialized services, particularly economic strengthening, psychosocial support, and nutrition. In a coordinated effort with partners, FHI will develop various referral systems to ensure access to comprehensive services for vulnerable children and their households. For instance, FHI will partner with the UJANA HIV prevention project and link vulnerable youth to appropriate reproductive health and prevention education activities through youth clubs. To address the high levels of physical and sexual abuse recently detailed in the Tanzania Violence Against Children Report, FHI will work with SEMA Tanzania, a program that sponsors a helpline for children, to increase support to children who have experienced abuse. In addition, one district in Dar es Salaam will pilot the One Stop Centre child protection model, currently implemented by Save the Children, UK in Zanzibar.
