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
NOTE: The following is taken from summaries released by PEPFAR on the PEPFAR Data Dashboard. They are incomplete summary paragraphs only and do not contain the full mechanism details. When the full narratives are released, we will update the mechanism pages accordingly.
Jhpiego will build on past experience working with CDC/Zambia and the Ministry of Health (MOH) to achieve the goal of supporting Zambia’s response to the HIV/AIDS epidemic by expanding quality interventions in HIV/AIDS prevention, care and treatment and building the capacity of MOH, National HIV/AIDS/STI/TB Council (NAC) and other Zambian organizations to deliver quality service in a sustained manner.
Jhpiego’s objectives support the Government of the Republic of Zambia’s (GRZ) National AIDS Strategic Framework (NASF) goal and the joint GRZ and USG Partnership Framework goal to reduce new HIV infections while scaling up treatment, care and support. Our capacity building of healthcare providers is in line with the National Health Strategic Plan (NHSP) objective to improve the availability of and distribution of health workers in the country.
The target geographical areas are mainly the Southern, Western and Eastern Provinces of Zambia which were chosen to continue building capacity and to strengthen the integration of results obtained in the past. Jhpiego works at the national level by supporting the MOH in their ongoing activities such as the Epidemiology for Data Use Package work group, MC roll-out in all nine provinces, and implementation of the ART Continuing Medical Education.
To ensure collection of necessary PEPFAR program-level indicators and other output data for project monitoring, Jhpiego will work through the MOH district, provincial and central level information systems, when feasible, and directly with health facilities when proper information systems are not in place, especially for newer areas such as MC. Jhpiego will use the training information monitoring system (TIMS), to track persons trained in order to facilitate follow-up and record keeping.
Since COP2014, PEPFAR no longer produces narratives for every mechanism it funds. However, PEPFAR has now included performance targets or indicator information for each mechanism based on the Monitoring, Evaluation, and Reporting (MER) system. The MER guidance is available on PEPFAR's website https://www.pepfar.gov/reports/guidance/. Note that COP years 2014-2015 were under a previous version of the MER system and the indicators and definitions may have changed as of the new 2.0 guidance.
This mechanism has no published performance targets or indicators.
