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
University California San Francisco (UCSF) overall strategy is to work with GAP-Tanzania to provide training, TA, and long-term capacity building to improve HIV prevention and care programs, surveillance systems, and the ability to use results to guide program planning, program improvements, and allocation of resources. To help achieve this, UCSF works with GAP-Tanzania, the USG PEPFAR team, NACP, ZACP, TACAIDS, MOHSW, the National Institute for Medical Research (NIMR), Muhimbili University of Health and Allied Sciences (MUHAS), and other bilateral and multilateral donor agencies to help Tanzanian institutions sustainably reduce HIV transmission, improve HIV/AIDS care and treatment, collect and use data, and manage national programs.
UCSF provides TA to leaders and staff in mainland Tanzania and Zanzibar to conduct surveillance on populations most at risk for HIV. However, UCSF does not implement projects, but rather provides TA and support to projects. Due to the hiring and capacitating of in-country staff, the need for international travel has been reduced. Local agencies will require less support over time to conduct surveillance activities.
UCSF routinely tracks the number of people trained and assesses the quality of the training through evaluations, as well at the outcomes of the TA (e.g. reports and data use).
UCSF will continue to provide technical assistance in the area of HIV surveillance for MARPs. This will build the national capacity for MARPs surveillance and enable national programs to continue routine surveillance with less support in future rounds, whereby eventually surveillance activities will be conducted without support.
UCSF will continue to assist Zanzibar with their MARPs studies and size estimation in both Unguja and Pemba with MSM, IDUs, and sex workers. UCSF will work with ZACP and CDC/GAP Tanzania to train data collectors, provide oversight of the studies, and assist with data analysis and report writing for both Pemba and Unguja. A drug mapping exercise in Mainland, along with the Drug Control Commission (DCC), will be conducted in order to assess areas of the country where drug use is prevalent and help to inform prioritization of drug prevention programming. UCSF will work with the DCC to write the protocol, collect data, analyze data, and disseminate results.
Technical assistance to CDC-GAP Tanzania, and its partners, will be supported in the design and implementation of an assessment of PMTCT program data for national HIV surveillance. With in-country partners, UCSF will assist in developing study materials, including data abstraction tools, SOPs, and job aides. UCSF will also assist with the development of training curriculum and assist in training PMTCT assessment staff and study implementation.
UCSF will provide technical assistance to CDC/GAP Tanzania and the National AIDS Control Program in the development and implementation of a study to understand behavioral drivers of the HIV epidemic in three large cities in Tanzania. The scope and specifics of this project have not yet been determined. The populations will likely be high-risk populations within urban areas, though specific definitions of the populations to be studied have not been determined. UCSF will support the national program in this endeavor in order to build capacity for operational research in the area of HIV surveillance.
