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.
Years of mechanism: 2012
In the second year of this mechanism, ICAP will continue to build on its extensive experience partnering with government agencies and community-based organizations in Tanzania to support URTs efforts to ensure a unified response to TB/HIV co-infection in the pediatric population. To achieve a sustainable response, ICAP will intensify the work initiated in enhancing the stewardship and capacity of MOHSW towards an effective national response to TB/HIV co-infections among children. Furthermore, the newly established pediatric TB/HIV Center of Excellence (COE) at Mwananyamala Hospital in Dar es Salaam will serve as a resource centre to healthcare workers. Trainings will be augmented by on-going mentorship in diagnostic procedures through clinical attachments at the COE, as well as on-site mentorship and supportive supervision from ICAP. Pediatric TB diagnostic algorithms and standard operating procedures will be strengthened to ensure that all TB suspects undergo a diagnostic work up, including chest x-ray and gene Xpert investigations, where indicated.
During the second through fifth years, ICAP will support scale-up and expansion of pediatric TB/HIV services through formation of regional COEs and establishment of linkages and referral systems with a network of private and public-sector satellite health facilities in regions with high TB and HIV burdens. ICAP will mentor regional and council health management teams so that they can ultimately assume management responsibilities and can sustain and ensure achievements beyond the life of the project. Support to MKUTA (NGO of former TB clients) to provide health education and contact tracing at community levels will continue with establishment of more TB clubs.
This funding will focus on building the capacity of health workers to provide comprehensive pediatric TB/HIV prevention services, providing care and treatment services through training, and conducting clinical mentorship and attachment. The project will ensure TB and HIV screening to all children attending the Dar es Salaam facility, while referring chidlren identified with TB disease for TB treatment. Children identified with TB disease will be initiated treatment, with the project ensuring that TB treatment is completed for these children.
