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.
The Inter-Religious Council of Uganda (IRCU) is an initiative established as a national faith-based Non-governmental Organization and constituted by five religious organizations in Uganda. They are the Catholic Church in Uganda, the Uganda Muslim Supreme Council, the Church of Uganda, the Uganda Orthodox Church and the Seventh Day Adventist church. However, other religious organizations notably the independent Pentecostal and evangelical churches under the Born Again faith Federation of Uganda work with IRCU to deliver HIV/AIDS programs. Since 2004 IRCU has been receiving funding from the United States Agency for International development (USAID) under the President's Emergency Fund for AIDs Relief (PEPFAR). The IRCU program supports religious communities and institutions to play a greater role in expanding access to and utilization of quality HIV/AIDS, prevention, palliative care and treatment for people affected and infected by HIV/AIDS and their families. The program has enhanced attainment of PEPFAR and IRCU goals for HIV prevention, care and treatment.IRCU delivers its programs by providing grants to credible FBOs to deliver services at the community level. Under the program IRCU has built capacity, provided, logistics and has given resources to FBOs in order to enable them deliver quality HIV/AIDS services. The program further strengthens linkages within and between the existing religious, community and service provision networks to enhance easy access to comprehensive HIV/AIDS services within the context of public-private partnership. In FY 2010, the overall approach of IRCU will be to strengthen the capacity of FBOs to plan, implement and deliver faculty and community based HIV and AIDS services while building on their existing structures, unique experiences and assets. This approach will be anchored on the following strategies. Service Integration, partnerships and linkages, training in service delivery, system strengthening and working with and strengthening the capacity of communities and families as first line structures for prevention and care. IRCU will use the faith based approach Model (FBM), a five pillar approach that emphasizes belief in God's power and guidance, acquiring and utilizing HIV/AIDS scientific knowledge, using relevant faith teachings and best practices based on the holy scriptures to complement prevention, care and treatment service delivery, use of religious structures and religious leaders and promotion of application of self control skills.
