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: 2010
NOTE: The following is taken from summaries released by PEPFAR on the PEPFAR Data Dashboard. They are incomplete summary paragraphs only and do not contain the full mechanism details. When the full narratives are released, we will update the mechanism pages accordingly.
Harvard University School of Public Health (HSPH) is an international partner that has supported comprehensive HIV prevention, care and treatment (C&T) services at 48 CTC, 200 PMTCT and 18 TB/HIV sites in Dar es Salaam since 2010. Over the past three years, HSPH has transitioned support of direct clinical care services responsibilities to MDH, a local grantee. Despite MDH making progress in supporting implementation of care and treatment services MDH continues to need TA from HSPH particularly on M&E and data management. HSPH’s role has now shifted to the provision of TA in order to support MDH-led adult and pediatric care, treatment, and PMTCT programs under the coordination of regional district authorities. HSPH TA to MDH is focused on improving data management, M&E, adult and pediatric ART training, pediatrics counselling and testing, and drug resistance monitoring. HSHP is leveraging PEPFAR resources to invest in key cross-cutting interventions that include Human Resources for Health and Nutrition. In COP FY 2014 HSPH will provide TA to MDH on the above mentioned program areas as well as on QI, grants management, and nutrition. HSPH assesses its work through routine reviews on project progress, program analyses, QI assessments, monthly team meetings, and quarterly and annual reporting. Supported activities are directly linked to implementation of the NMSF III, GHI and, the PF to promote greater program impact, sustainability and local ownership.
Harvard’s FY 2013 EA DSP UEs were reviewed and found to be comparable to similar partners; expenditures reported were in line with programmatic priorities and approved budgets. HSPH is a TA partner hence does not report on any indicator.
Since COP2014, PEPFAR no longer produces narratives for every mechanism it funds. However, PEPFAR has now included performance targets or indicator information for each mechanism based on the Monitoring, Evaluation, and Reporting (MER) system. The MER guidance is available on PEPFAR's website https://www.pepfar.gov/reports/guidance/. Note that COP years 2014-2015 were under a previous version of the MER system and the indicators and definitions may have changed as of the new 2.0 guidance.
This mechanism has no published performance targets or indicators.
