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
ACTIVITY UNCHANGED FROM FY08:
These activities relate to activities in Catholic Relief Services (CRS) CRS SUCCESS II HBHC; HTXS, and
HVCT; other track 1.0 OVC projects, and RAPIDS HKID.
This is the sixth year of operations for this Track 1.0 OVC Project, Support to OVC affect by HIV/AIDS,
implemented by CRS. This project coordinates closely with the CRS SUCCESS home-based care project
in Zambia. This partnership has increased its effectiveness in the last few years. In FY 2008, CRS OVC
reached 16,547 OVC with various services, including: educational assistance, psychosocial support; child
protection; health, shelter and economic empowerment and training of 2,500 care givers.
In FY 2009, the CRS OVC project will continue to ensure that OVC have access to high quality services.
The project will continue with programs which ensure that faith based organizations (FBOs) and community-
based organizations (CBOs) have sustained capacity to deliver high quality OVC services. The project will
continue to intensify community mobilization. In FY 2009, the project will hold at least 20 community
mobilization activities aimed at raising the awareness of OVC issues. These will be conducted by the
Diocesan partners at the project level. The target group includes, but is not limited to, local community
leaders, religious leaders, guardians, teachers and OVC beneficiaries. The campaigns will also enhance
community participation in identifying volunteers, setting criteria for OVC enrollment, stigma reduction, and
strengthening the extended family system. Community mobilization activities are designed to build
community awareness about the needs of OVC and to promote a sense of community ownership of the
activities being implemented. Examples of these activities include drama performances, social activities,
psychosocial support, and recreation activities for youth.
CRS OVC will continue to follow and strengthen the established identification process for OVC. OVC are
first identified by caregivers, through home-based care programs and home visitations follow. The children
who are identified are then verified by community leaders/committees. After the verification exercise, a
direct registration form is used as a final document to take the client on as a beneficiary. Thereafter, the
form is sent to the parish for purpose of updating the beneficiary list.
The project will continue to support two diocesan partners of the Catholic Church (Mongu Diocese in
Western Zambia and Solwezi diocese in Northwestern Zambia). CRS OVC links closely to RAPIDS OVC to
avoid duplication and overlap, as well as to other Track 1 OVC activities. It also integrates with the CRS
SUCCESS II HBC project in areas served by both projects, to incorporate care and support to OVCs in
home-based care settings. Support and care services for OVCs will include (1) educational support, (which
includes the payment of school fees, provision of uniforms, and other educational materials); (2)
psychosocial support (which includes addressing the emotional, spiritual, mental, physical, and social needs
of children); (3) and Child Protection, which involves sensitizing parents/guardians and the community at
large about the rights of children and birth registration. The project will further train OVC guardians in coping
skills to help them cope with life.
The project will continue to focus on the three core services mentioned above, although some children will
be reached with less than three services. In FY 2009, the project estimates that it will reach 17,500 OVC
(8,750 Direct and 8,750 Supplemental) through community mobilization and closer linkages with other
sectors and initiatives.
Linkages with other sectors and initiatives shall be emphasized in order to promote leveraging. The program
has strategically selected its operating areas to link to other USG funded OVC projects (such as RAPIDS),
home-based care, and ART programs. Linkages with other sectors will include education support for OVC,
paralegal counseling for OVC households, linkages to nutritional education and support programs. Partners
will conduct training for OVC caregivers and receive support from CRS in quality assurance and local
organizational capacity development in order to promote sustainability. CRS will train 350 volunteer
caregivers in psychosocial skills, basic counseling skills, monitoring and evaluation, child protection issues,
and nutritional education.
CRS will continue to provide partners with guidance in quality assurance by conducting site visits, providing
technical support, and systematic feedback on financial and programmatic reports. In addition, CRS will
build the capacity of partners in programmatic and financial management through trainings and site visits.
Utilizing the capacity and trainings from CRS, the partners will in turn train and support faith based OVC
programs in Northwestern, and Western provinces .CRS will work with partners to strengthen parish and
community structures to ensure sustainability of activities. Integration of the program with other programs is
on going in order to achieve synergy and promote sustainability of programs within the Diocese.
It is estimated that $26,000 will be spent on health, shelter, and child protection activities.
