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
May 2010 Programming = $150,000. Funds are being added to Abt Associates to support two critical needs in Vietnam: 1) Needs Modeling: HIV/AIDS Program Sustainability Analysis Tool (HAPSAT) in the amount of $50,000, and 2) Data Use and Interpretation in the amount of $100,000. With these funds HPI/Abt will continue to apply HIV/AIDS Program Sustainability Analysis Tool (HAPSAT) to simulate national and provincial scenarios of breadth and depth of service delivery coverage. HAPSAT is a computer-based tool for forecasting and analyzing the sustainability of national HIV/AIDS programs. HAPSAT uses detailed epidemiological, demographic, and economic data to estimate/project the financial and human resources required to sustain and/or scale up a portfolio of HIV/AIDS programs. This activity will also complement activities within A2 project which have been implemented in two 'PEPFAR focus provinces' annually since FY2008 as well as supporting the data triangulation activity that has been supported by PEPFAR SI since FY2009. To date, significant HIV/AIDS program data have been generated from various sources by PEPFAR implementing partners. However, the major gap in the M&E system of PEPFAR partners is a lack of capacity and/or being fully technical supported to analyze and use their own program data to improve program implementation and to respond precisely to the HIV/AIDS epidemic in Vietnam. In addition, technically analyzing and systematically presenting current data such as surveillance data, coverage data, and financial data at program level and provincial level for programming and planning remain under-developed particularly at the sub-national (i.e. province, district, commune) levels. Three key barriers have been identified:
? Lack of human resources and technical skills in utilizing data for programming, funding allocation and strategic decision making,
? Lack of human resources and technical skills in coordinating, harmonizing and triangulating surveillance, M&E, HIV/AIDS routinely collected programming and financing data,
? Limited technical and management guidelines on data analysis and use.
Abt Associates is one of the key partners of the PEPFAR program which has been implementing activities to strengthen the 'data synthesis and use' in seven 'PEPFAR focus provinces' in Vietnam with a focus at provincial and program level.
In FY10, PEPFAR will continue to support HPI/Abt Vietnam to continue ensuring timely and accurate data used for evidence-based decision making at both national and provincial as well as program levels. With close collaboration and technical guidance from PEPFAR Strategic Information, the HPI/Abt team will bring unique capabilities in using data to translate policy into action through HIV/AIDS policy planning, budgeting, and program implementation.
Moving toward sustainability development for host country, HPI/Abt will partially use the fund to continue support a local partner that has high profile, experience and expertise in data synthesis, analysis and use to provide hand-on technical assistance to PEPFAR partners and TWGs. The selected local partner will also work closely with PEPFAR SI team to provide support to members of other PEPFAR technical working groups in analyzing program data for planning. Furthermore, the selected local partner will support series of training workshops for PEPFAR partners on basic and advance program data analysis. In collaboration with other SI partners, the selected local partner will take part in fostering activities related to data synthesis and use such as data triangulation, estimation and projection, HIV/AIDS modeling.
ABT ASSOCIATES 100% CONDOM USAGE PROGRAM (CUP) IMPLEMENTATION: $100,000
The 100% Condom Usage Program (CUP) is an integral part of the PEPFAR Vietnam 5-Year Strategy and its plan for comprehensive HIV prevention programs. Whereas many outreach programs target either commercial sex workers (CSW) or potential clients, the 100% CUP is uniquely positioned to address the needs of both with the explicit cooperation of law enforcement, health authorities and other stakeholders. This collaboration helped the PEPFAR Vietnam team to reach planned FY 2009 targets not only through outreach, but by reducing the fear of arrest and the stigmatization that causes sex workers and clients to avoid health-seeking behaviors.
In FY 2010, the following activities will be carried out:
1. Abt Associates will continue to support implementation and evaluation of the 100% CUP in An Giang province. The evaluation will be based on program process data from the implementing partners and cross-sectional data on sex workers gathered through IBBS conducted by Family Health International and Population Services International's surveys of clients of CSW. The development of tools for supervision and monitoring of the 100% CUP implementation will be an integral part of this process.
2. Abt Associates will field-test guidance materials and training curriculum on 100% CUP in selected provinces. Following field testing, Abt will revise the materials, incorporating supervision and monitoring tools. Abt will also provide technical assistance to accelerate the implementation of national condom promotion guidelines launched in 2008 and expand 100% CUP to other provinces and localities.
The following indicators will be achieved:
Number of targeted condom service outlets: N/A
Number of individuals reached through community outreach that promotes HIV/AIDS prevention through behavior change other than abstinence and/or being faithful: 3,000
Number of individuals trained to promote HIV/AIDS prevention through behavior change other than abstinence and/or being faithful: 368
