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.

PACT Tanzania implements Pamoja Tuwalee, a 5 year cooperative agreement that aims to provide coordinated and sustainable care for most vulnerable children and households infected/affected with HIV in the Lake and Southern Zones of Tanzania targeting 55700 OVC with one core service, 27850 with food and/or nutrition service and 6960 households with economic opportunity/strengthening support in FY12. The objectives of the project are to increase local ownership and capacity to support OVC to access community-based care and support; strengthen the capacity of local government authorities and civil society to provide quality services to OVC and their households; and replicate effective multi-sectoral coordination structures that include the private sector at district and village levels. The program also contributes to the 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. The objectives also contribute to GHI Strategy IR1,2 and 3 that relates to increased access to quality maternal, child, and reproductive health services.
PACTs program approach contributes to the sustainability of service delivery to vulnerable households by strengthening LGA and civil society capacity. In addition, sustainability is built through PACTs use of the WORTH economic strengthening model as a platform to strengthen capacity of households and mobilize communities around critical issues.
PACT will continue to collect program data as identified in the M&E plan, which includes mandatory PEPFAR indicators. In FY12, PACT will also contribute to the evidence base by documenting experiences with pilots in child protection and child health integration models in the Lake Zone.
PACT Tanzania is an international organization that has implemented OVC programs in Tanzania with support from PEPFAR and Global Fund for more than five years. PACT Tanzania has implemented the Pamoja Tuwalee program in Southern and Lake Zones since FY 2010 and aims to strengthen OVC households and community safety nets. The program primarily supports the first goal of the Partnership Framework, which is related to service maintenance and scale up to improve the quality of life of people affected by HIV, particularly most vulnerable children (MVC). The project targets roughly 2,000 MVC households per district.
In FY 2012 and FY 2013, PACT will continue to support delivery of health and social services to vulnerable households through grants and technical assistance to local organizations. Areas of priority include use of PACTs WORTH model to strengthen household economies and mobilize community members around critical issues such as gender-based violence, child protection, and HIV prevention. PACT also plans to engage the private sector in supporting program activities, particularly in increasing and expanding WORTH groups and providing health and social service provision to vulnerable households.
In FY 2012, PACT will also support continued roll-out and strengthening of para-social workers in targeted districts and most vulnerable childrens committees (MVCC) at the community-level to coordinate care and support services for MVC and their households. In response to findings from a recent UNICEF supported Violence Against Children Report, the USG and URT have allocated additional resources to PACT in FY 2012 to pilot and assess a one-stop center model for child protection in Mwanza. The proposed model will build on their existing child protection activities and will contribute to building the evidence-base in effective child protection strategies. In addition, PACT will also be an implementing partner of the Lake Zone Integration Initiative, which aims to pilot a continuum of care approach for child health and development through establishment of strategic linkages between PACT (OVC), URC (child health) and Baylor International Pediatric AIDS Initiative. Pact will also implement and assess gender-based violence activities with additional allocations from the global GBV initiative. Planned activities include developing safe havens for children who have experienced physical or sexual abuse and community sensitization efforts regarding the effects of abuse against women and children. In addition, PACT will train individuals that work at the district-level, including stakeholders, such as social welfare officers, police, teachers, and prison staff, to address child abuse and gender-based violence.
In FY 2013, PACT will also expand activities into the Southern Highlands Zone and serve OVC beneficiaries previously supported by the Walter Reed Program/Department of Defense (WRP/DoD). This transition will involve an increase of $2.74 million in PACTs budget from the WRP/DoD activity. Transition and start-up activities in Southern Highlands will commence early in FY 2012 to ensure continuity of services for the OVC beneficiaries. PACT will work closely with the WRP/DoD to assess the capacity of the current sub partners in order to identify sub grantees which will continue to implement the program.
