Local vs. International PEPFAR Prime Partners: Comparing Financial, Epidemiological, and Value per Result Performance

Session Date: April 21, 2021

Session Description: In 2018, PEPFAR announced that by the end of fiscal year (FY) 20, 70% of funding from each implementing agency within a PEPFAR supported country should be provided to local prime partners. By the close of FY 20, PEPFAR allocated 52% of global funding to local prime partners, remaining short of the target. We analyzed FY 20 local vs. international prime partner financial, epidemiological, and comparative value per result performance to evaluate how local prime partner investment has contributed to PEPFAR programmatic goals on the path to reaching the 70% target.
