PEPFAR data can be analyzed through a variety of additional data sources. Specific centrally funded initiatives, including DREAMS (Determined, Resilient, Empowered AIDS-free, Mentored, and Safe), DREAMS Partnership and Voluntary Medical Male Circumcision (VMMC) have additional data collected, which can be downloaded and reviewed. Site Improvement Through Monitoring System (SIMS) data aims to increase the impact of PEPFAR programs on the HIV epidemic through standardized monitoring of the quality of PEPFAR support at the site level. In addition, Supply Chain Management System (SCMS) data provides information on health commodities, prices, and delivery destinations. Please see the below links for additional detail about each of these data sets.
2015 and 2016 data shown at the Sub-National Unit (SNU) level is shown at the provincial level. If you would like to view SNU data at the district level, please refer to the most recent annual results report (http://www.pepfar.gov/funding/results/index.htm).
DREAMS and VMMC Central Data
PEPFAR central funds constitute monies allocated to operating units beyond those tied to annual operating budgets and to agencies to support administrative responsibilities.
Funds channeled to operating units typically are for local areas of PEPFAR countries, depending on the needs or opportunities afforded by local circumstances. Agency funds typically are assigned to all PEPFAR implementing agencies. Funds are used to promote innovation, research, and improved oversight of PEPFAR programs.
Central funds for the Determined, Resilient, Empowered AIDS-free, Mentored, and Safe (DREAMS) Partnership and Voluntary Medical Male Circumcision (VMMC) are additional funds added to the PEPFAR country budgets.
Funds are aimed at expanding male circumcision activities in targeted countries with the goal of achieving ambitious VMMC goals in high-burden countries. Please view our interactive charts for FY 2014 central funding data here.
Site Improvement Through Monitoring System
The goal of PEPFAR’s Site Improvement Through Monitoring System (SIMS) is to increase the impact of PEPFAR programs on the HIV epidemic through standardized monitoring of the quality of PEPFAR support at the site level (e.g., health facility; ward, district, etc.), focusing on key program area elements.
SIMS aims to systematize and broaden ongoing PEPFAR site monitoring processes and improve documentation of this oversight; this is accomplished through administration of standard tools that assess adherence to PEPFAR standards of care and service delivery, as well as within entities that support and guide service delivery. The following chart shows preliminary results from the FY2014 fourth quarter SIMS assessments. SIMS site assessments will be conducted on a regular and ongoing basis, and these data will be updated accordingly.
* Data are preliminary as November 28, 2014; these data may be updated. Relevant domains only were assessed at each site. Countries included are Botswana, Burundi, Cameroon, Cote d'Ivoire, Democratic Republic of the Congo, Ethiopia, Haiti, Kenya, Lesotho, Malawi, Mozambique, Namibia, Nigeria, Rwanda, South Africa, Swaziland, Tanzania, Uganda, and Vietnam.
Site Monitoring System
The Site Monitoring System (SMS), the predecessor for SIMS data, conducted over 4,100 PEPFAR site support assessments from July 2012 - June 2014 in 21 countries. The goal of SMS was to standardize clinical site quality monitoring by PEPFAR in-country staff through the assessment and scoring of site performance on key program area elements. SMS was used by PEPFAR until 2014, when it was replaced by SIMS, a longer-term initiative for improving program quality at PEPFAR sites.

Procurement Transaction Data from the Supply Chain Management System
Procurement transaction data from the Supply Chain Management System (SCMS), administered by the United States Agency for International Development (USAID), provides information on health commodities, prices, and delivery destinations.
These data are available in both CSV and an Excel format with similar fields to the Price and Quality Reporting (PQR) of the Global Fund to Fight AIDS, Tuberculosis and Malaria. This format provides a more complete picture of global spending on HIV/AIDS medical commodities and allows all stakeholders to make data-driven decisions. The SCMS data set is particularly valuable for understanding ranges and trends in pricing for specific commodities as well as trends in the commodities that have been delivered to various countries.
Limitations to the data exist. The data only include SCMS transactions, not all purchases made under PEPFAR. The data are not intended to determine lead times or total landed cost for a single shipment line item. Because individual line items are often consolidated into large shipments to reduce freight costs, line items may have different freight costs, points of origin, or delivery dates (e.g., emergency orders).
Additionally, while some shipment line items include cost of freight and/or insurance in the commodity price (based on the vendor’s responsibilities for the associated shipment), others do not. See more information in the Data Dictionary. Detailed Data Notes are also included within the Excel version of the data file. These data are expected to be published on a quarterly basis.
