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.
Expenditure Sub-Program Areas track more specific PEPFAR expenditures.
Object classes provide highly specific ways that implementing partners are spending PEPFAR funds on programming.
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
Beneficiary Expenditure data identify how PEPFAR programming is targeted at reaching different populations.
Sub-Beneficiary Expenditure data highlight more specific populations targeted for HIV prevention and treatment interventions.
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.
Since July 2010, the Population Council has been implementing the COMPACT project. The goal is to develop and determine the feasibility of “community compacts” as an innovative approach to prevent HIV in Zambian communities in line with government’s goal of reducing new HIV infections by 50% by 2015. Community compacts are agreements between service providers and recipient communities aimed at increasing effectiveness of services. Communities identify HIV prevention targets and implement intervention to achieve those targets. We have developed a system of incentives to reward communities for reaching their targets. The rewards are for the community, not individuals, to further the goals and motivate the community.
Objectives are a) Work collaboratively in selected communities to develop community compacts for HIV prevention interventions; b)Transfer skills to communities by building capacity of community-based organizations (CBOs) to improve and expand their HIV prevention activities; c) Develop and implement measurement frameworks to track progress of community prevention activities. To measure results, COMPACT is using a sero-behavioral survey to measure changes in behavior and HIV.
COMPACT is in six communities; Chinyunyu and Nangwenya communities in Rufunsa district, Chongwe in Chongwe district, and Kawama, Kaniki, and Mushili in Ndola district. It targets to 36,888 people (15,143 men, 19,726 Women, 2,019 adolescent girls). In each community, COMPACT has a Community Compact Development Committee (CCDC), leaders that manage the compacts and supervises 15 community based organizations. The CCDC will transition to Community AIDS Task Forces under National AIDS Council.
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.
