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
As planned, CDC posted a USDH Country Director to Swaziland in September 2007, whose role includes
overall responsibility for the CDC program presence and coordination in Swaziland, as well as specific
responsibilities for the PEPFAR SI activities (the latter is reflected in the SI narrative and budgets). The
initial year of salary and benefits for this USDH position was not covered by FY07 mini-COP funds, but they
are included in FY08 and will be in future years as well. The CDC HIV/AIDS Program Specialist, who was
funded for the first two years under COMFORCE will become a USPSC by September 2007. The Program
Specialist primarily covers activity management in the technical areas of Care and Treatment (reflected in
those narratives and budgets), as well as PEPFAR management (reflected here). Both the CDC Country
Director and CDC Program Specialist will continue to be members of both the USG PEPFAR Task Force
and Steering Committee, and will coordinate all partners in their respective technical areas to ensure
complementary and synergistic activities.
