1 PEPFAR defines direct support as data that captures the number of individuals receiving prevention, care, and treatment services through service delivery sites or providers directly supported by U.S. Government (USG) interventions or activities at the point of service delivery. An intervention or activity is considered to be direct support if it can be associated with counts of uniquely identified individuals receiving prevention, care, or treatment services at a unique program or service delivery point benefiting from the intervention or activity.
