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.

This is a continuing Track 1 : Hope for African Children Initiative (HACI) mission is to mobilize a global initiative to address the needs of African children affected by HIV/AIDS, and to engage, strengthen capacities of and share effective practices among stakeholders at all levels. In Uganda, the Breaking Barriers (BB) program is being implemented by Plan Uganda in partnership with Save the Children US and the Inter-Religious Council of Uganda (IRCU). HACI advocates for the rights of children made vulnerable by HIV/AIDS and strengthens the capacity of local organisations responding to their needs. Through the Breaking Barriers programme equitable, effective, high-quality OVC programs in education, psycho-social support and home-based care for children and families affected by HIV/AIDS will be expanded using school networks and religious institutions as a coordinated platform for rapid scale up, expansion and sustainability. Key of this project include: Increased number of OVCs enrolled in, attending and retained in school and receiving quality education and psycho-social support by 30%; Supported Government's efforts to reduce the stigma and discrimination of children, particularly primary school pupils, affected by HIV/AIDS; Information, education and communication (IEC) concerns of pupils addressed so that they receive adequate information about sexual and reproductive health issues; Teachers equipped with an integrated set of psycho-social support skills to counsel children on coping with parental illness or death; Strengthened children's participation through scaling up of children's activities.
To introduce and support psycho-social intervention along side HIV/AIDS knowledge dissemination in the primary schools in the country To ensure sustainability, Breaking Barriers leverages existing national investment in educational infrastructure, host government support of the majority of school operating costs, and the private support of faith-based organizations. Further, Breaking Barriers activities are largely knowledge and experience-based improvements to human resources so that individuals can continue program efforts without outside resources. The capacities of community based organizations involved in this programme are targeted for enhancement through training, mentoring and supervision and provision of financial support for service delivery. In Nakasongola where Save the Children (US) operates the programme is linked to the Food Monetization Programme supported by USAID. In FY 07, Breaking Barriers aims to reach 15,900 new OVC and 5,090 new care-givers. The cumulative total of OVC and care givers to be served this year is 32, 286 and 4279 directly and many more indirectly.
Breaking Barriers partners work in close link with both central and local government partners. Local council, political and opinion leaders are engaged to ensure community ownership of the programme. In addition, the IPs draw technical and other support from the wider HACI partnership. Linkages are established with health centers that provide health support to OVC identified as needing them. Through the Breaking Barriers programme, partners are supported to participate in district OVC fora. HACI has taken great care to ensure that the targets for FY do not double count OVC. This has been achieved by the establishment of school registers and establishment of monitoring and reporting forms to facilitate effective record keeping.
Targets: Number of OVC served by OVC programs - 7,950* (Male: 1987 Female: 5963) The 7,950 OVC targeted for FY07 are new OVC. The activities in this work plan will continue working with the 23,336 OVC reached last FY (06). The cumulative total by the end of FY 07 will therefore be 31, 286 OVC
Number of providers/caretakers trained in caring for OVC - 5,090
The 5,090 care-givers targeted for FY07 are new caregivers. The activities in this work plan will continue working with the 1,979 care-givers reached last FY (06). The cumulative total by the end of FY 07 will therefore be 4,279 care-givers
Plan: OVC served 2500 Care-givers trained 70 Save US: OVC served 3450 Care-givers trained 2080 IRCU:
OVC served 2000 Care-givers trained 150
