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: 2011
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.
Jhpiego is an international partner providing national-level TA support to the MOHSW to improve IPC practices in Tanzania. Specifically, Jhpiego focuses on strengthening the MOHSW’s capacity to manage IPC programs and address major contributors to hospital-acquired infections. In alignment with PF Goals 4 and 5 on commodity supply and human resources, Jhpiego will continue to provide TA to the MOHSW on IPC, injection safety, phlebotomy, occupational exposure to blood borne pathogens, and health care waste management (HCWM). Jhpiego will work with the MOHSW to ensure R/CHMTs are trained on IPC, injection safety and post-exposure prophylaxis (PEP) provision and that these areas are functioning well in all health facilities that provide HIV care and treatment services. In addition, Jhpiego will support the MOHSW to conduct supportive supervision and mentorship of R/CHMTs and hospitals as part of program M&E. The partner will work in collaboration with the MOHSW to ensure availability of high-quality IPC and injection safety commodities at the health facility level through site M&E. Jhpiego and the MOHSW will continue to implement a standards-based management and recognition approach as part of program and health facility evaluation. It is anticipated that this project will lead to measurable improvements in the overall quality of IPC in facilities, increased capacity of HCWs to consistently and correctly perform IPC practices, regular monitoring of IPC practices, institutionalization of appropriate HCWM systems, and reductions in stock-outs of essential IPC commodities. Jhpiego's activities are not measured with FY 2013 EA DSP UEs; however, expenditures reported were in line with programmatic priorities and approved budgets.
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.
