U.S. Global AIDS Coordinator Goosby Reflects on PEPFAR Expenditure Analysis Initiative

July 11, 2013

"In 2009, PEPFAR began to pilot the Expenditure Analysis Initiative, tracking expenditures for PEPFAR programs to provide rigorous financial monitoring. This analysis provides detailed annual data on expenditures by program area, cost category, and region," Ambassador Eric Goosby, head of the U.S. State Department's Office of Global Health Diplomacy and the U.S. global AIDS coordinator, writes in the PEPFAR.gov blog. "The Expenditure Analysis Initiative, currently being rolled out PEPFAR-wide, illustrates how the information collected will help direct our programs to stretch each dollar further through smart investments," he states, adding, "To truly maximize program impact and find additional efficiencies, we need to work with partner governments as well as with multilateral and bilateral organizations to generate a complete picture of all resources currently supporting national AIDS responses. To this end, PEPFAR is actively engaged with the Global Fund to Fight AIDS, Tuberculosis and Malaria, the World Bank, UNAIDS, and other partners on harmonizing expenditure categories across donor and national accounting systems" (7/10).
