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: 2008
This activity relates to other 1.0 OVC projects and RAPIDS HKID.
World Concern is a Track 1.0 OVC project that started in FY 2004 and expands care to OVCs through the
Association of Evangelical Relief and Development Agencies (AERDO) HIV/AIDS Alliance in Zambia,
including its direct affiliate, Christian Reformed World Relief Committee (CWCRC), as well as other partners
such as the Nazarene Compassionate Ministries (NCM), Reformed Church in Zambia Eastern Diaconia
Services (RCZ-EDS), World Hope International Zambia (WHIZ), the Reformed Community Support
Organization (RECS), and Operation Blessing International (OBI).
In FY 2008, World Concern will provide care and support for 10,269 OVC, train 564 caregivers, and
continue to build the capacity of 17 CBOs besides technical support to the existing FBOs and CBOs that
were recruited from year one to three. World Concern and its partners will continue to develop and
strengthen networks with government, other FBOs and NGOs, and USG funded OVC projects. World
Concern will enhance efficiency and effectiveness of program activities and ensure OVC quality care.
Special consideration will be given to HIV positive OVC and children whose parents or guardians are unable
to support them due to illnesses caused by HIV/AIDS. These children will be linked to VCT, ART, and PC
services. The project will continue to follow the established identification and selection process to identify
eligible OVC. The Church OVC committees first identify and recommend the OVC to World Concern staff.
Thereafter, the staff verifies the eligibility of each OVC by conducting an assessment at household level
using assessment and registration form. If an OVC qualifies, he/she is enrolled in the program. It is
expected that OVC support activities will continue in the community, even after the grant expires, through
volunteers, the established CBOs, and the animal and seed loan rotation program.
The project will develop close linkages with relevant government ministries and institutions. The project will
continue to promote gender equality in the support rendered to both OVC and Caregiver groups. Caregiver
and OVC registrations in the program shall continue to carry a balanced gender composition. World
Concern has a deliberate policy of gender-balance regarding participation in project implementation.
OBI will use formative and summative research to develop the key Behavior change television messages
for a series of radio and television public service announcements (PSAs) to an audience of the
approximated Zambia National Broadcasting Corporation (ZNBC) standard of 1,816,320 people. Working
through indigenous advertising agencies, focus group discussions with adults and OVC and an initial round
of surveys will provide information on the challenges to transforming public perceptions on OVC and
HIV/AIDS to form the basis of behavior change communication (BCC) message points. The PSAs will be
pre-tested in country again in collaboration with the CTO and USAID. The overall goal is to effectively use
mass media to raise awareness of, and support of the Zambian society for OVC, focusing on advocacy for
the protection of property and assets of families, capacity-building for the elderly and child-to-child
caregivers, raising awareness to create a supportive environment for OVC, and safer norms and behaviors
using the Abstinence and Being Faithful (AB) model. OBI will target ZNBC radio listeners and TV viewers
and will collaborate closely with ZNBC and other media organizations.
RECS and RCZ EDS will work on the Copperbelt and the Eastern Provinces of Zambia to increase OVC
and caregiver's income levels through IGA programs OVC will benefit through nutrition and educational
support. OVC support will be integrated in the community through the involvement of trained community
volunteers, FBOs and CBOs. RCZ EDS will encourage the active participation of both female and male
volunteers and beneficiaries. It will conduct gender sensitization workshops and support existing women's
groups with training, food security aid and health-related activities. The project will also continue to ensure
that youths (OVC between 13-17 years) continue to take a prominent role in the project. Youths who head
households will continue to benefit from skills training provided to caregivers. Other services provided to
them include psychosocial support, age appropriate reproductive health, HIV/AIDS awareness and
prevention, CT, and referral for other clinical services.
WHIZ will work with the Pilgrim Wesleyan Church communities located in Southern and Lusaka Provinces.
Selected families and caregivers will be targeted for agricultural and small-scale entrepreneurship start-up
loans. The targeted families and caregivers will under-go livelihood/IGA skills training in farming, gardening,
animal multiplication and animal husbandry projects, sewing and tailoring and carpentry. Income generated
from these projects will be used to cater for OVC's school, medical, food and clothing needs. Other areas in
which training will be provided to the targeted communities include community health in general and
HIV/AIDS in particular, peer education skills, OVC care, HBC, and functional literacy.
RECS will work on the Copperbelt, Northern, and Luapula Provinces. RECS will mobilize and strengthen its
FBOs by training and supporting volunteer members and caregivers in psycho-social counseling, Home
Based Care, IGAs, farming/gardening and small animal restocking. RECS will train its FBO coordinators in
leadership, OVC support skills and IGA in order to build FBOs' capacity to respond to the plight of OVC who
will be exposed to available health care, social, and education services.
NCM will train church and community volunteers as caregivers that will support OVC. NCM will work with
churches in Southern Province and Luapula Province. Program activities will involve training, awareness
and establishing methods of sustaining the OVC programs that will be introduced. Each identified
family/caregiver will receive skills training in OVC/Home Based Care, nutrition and prevention of common
community diseases including HIV/AIDS, to empower them to address problems in each respective
CCAP R&D will provide care to OVC and also train caregivers in Lundazi district in Eastern Province of
Zambia. The goal is to alleviate poverty and improve living conditions of OVC. CCAP R&D will organize
churches and communities and to empower them to support and provide for the needs of OVC. CCAP R&D
will help OVC to access education, good nutrition, different skills and quality care and support through a
supported caregiver. Communities and local organizations will be trained and encouraged generate income
through contributions, farming/gardening and other IGAs.
The sustainability strategy entails enhancing the capacity of churches to continue to provide the services to
both church members and community members at large.
All FY 2008 targets will be reached by September 30, 2009.
