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.

As people return to their homes and re-build their lives in a post-conflict era and setting, natural resources,
especially access and rights to land and wildlife species, play a key role in maintaining the hard fought
peace, and contributes directly to improved health status. The new USAID/Uganda activity in northern
Uganda will support a core set of activities in the areas of biodiversity conservation and environment;
property rights and resource governance; environmental education and communication; and natural
resource management/economic opportunities The project will include a component on environmental
education in the schools and communities of three specific biodiverse regions. The objective of this
component is to improve environmental awareness among individuals, communities, CBOs and
Government officials in northern Uganda by addressing the major threats to biodiversity in the area,
primarily resource extraction (timber and bushmeat) and habitat fragmentation.
Schools are also centers of social capital. The Straight Talk Foundation (STF) currently works through
school structures to improve knowledge of HIV acquisition, transmission and prevention by distributing
youth newspapers, sensitizing teachers and supporting school HIV/AIDS clubs. STF is also an
environmentally conscious organization, with its Tree Talk program . Through the Tree Talk program,
woodlots are grown, teachers, students and communities are educated about the environment and
conservation. Wildlife Clubs of Uganda also works through schools and currently has clubs established in
over 1000 schools in Uganda. The USAID biodiversity project anticipates working with Tree Talk and
Wildlife Clubs of Uganda to implement the environmental education component. USG Uganda will
contribute HIV PEPFAR funds to wrap around this educational component and include HIV education and
Northern Uganda has the country's highest HIV prevalence . As people leave the camps and scatter across
the landscapes, many will occupy areas of high biodiversity assets. As many as 500,000 families will be
deforesting areas to build their homes and to hunt bushmeat for their families. New approaches to HIV are
urgently needed. While there is some fatigue with HIV messages, environmental education is new and
exciting. Tree Talk's experience is that schools mobilize more around trees than they do around HIV. The
USG team sees an opportunity to create a win-win scenario to reinvigorate HIV education and prevention by
using the channel of tree growing to conserve biodiversity.
The biodiversity project will support 600 educational institutions, including primary and secondary schools,
across the districts of Adjumani, Gulu/Amuru, Kitgum and Pader to become self-sufficient in fuel and plant
boundaries of indigenous trees. With tree growing as the entry-point, the biodiversity project will reach
120,000 parents a year, work with 74 Straight talk clubs for 37,500 older adolescents and youth,
sensitization of 600 teachers, and develop health fairs for 75,000 out-of-school youth. This activity would
work closely with the NUMAT project that offers other HIV/AIDS services to the internally displaced
