PEPFAR Data Governance Guidance
Data, and the information derived from data, are assets for PEPFAR, its partners, academic and scientific communities, and the public at large. PEPFAR Data Governance Guidance establishes general policy for managing data generated through PEPFAR-funded programming. The PEPFAR program leverages data to improve our ability to achieve HIV epidemic control and increase transparency and accountability. The utility of data used for decision-making hinges on the degree to which data meet established quality criteria and are securely organized and accessible.
This document complements relevant policy directives, guidance, and authorities, including the Federal Data Strategy. PEPFAR is managed and overseen by the U.S. Department of State's Office of the U.S. Global AIDS Coordinator and Health Diplomacy, which implements data policies consistent with any applicable guidance, including guidance of State Department’s Bureau of Information Resource Management. This PEPFAR data governance guidance is also informed by data management policies of the PEPFAR implementing agencies: U.S. Agency for International Development (USAID); Department of Defense (DoD); Department of Commerce (DoC); Department of Labor (DoL); Department of Health and Human Services (HHS); Peace Corps and; Department of the Treasury. This PEPFAR data governance guidance document outlines roles and responsibilities for critical data management functions that support the PEPFAR program.
