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: 2007
Since 2001 CDC has operated in Zambia under the Global AIDS Program (GAP), primarily providing
technical and logistical support to the Ministry of Health (MOH) and other national institutions for HIV/AIDS
and tuberculosis programs. With the rapid scale up of PEPFAR activities over the last four years, the staff
and infrastructure of CDC-Zambia have continued to grow to support these activities. As a result the amount
paid to share quality administrative services under International Cooperative Administrative Support
Services (ICASS) has steadily risen. At the end of FY 2007 45 of CDC-Zambia's 48 approved positions had
been filled or were awaiting final security clearance. The total staffing will be brought to 53 in FY 2008. A
further breakdown of the staff can be found in the main management and staffing narrative. The total CDC
staff on the ground in Zambia is nearly 500% larger than when the PEPFAR program began in 2004. This
rapid growth has also seen a growth in all administrative requirements directly related ICASS charges. In
addition to staffing increases, CDC's ICASS charges associated with Financial Management and
Procurement have continued to increased, with the highest number of "strip code" charges in Financial
Management at post.
Additional funds are being requested to be reprogrammed from unallocated to support the anticipated
shortfall within the budget for embassy ICASS charges.
