  • 78,800 individuals received counseling and testing
  • 300 orphans and vulnerable children (OVCs) received support
  • 500 HIV-positive pregnant women received antiretroviral prophylaxis for PMTCT
  • 13,500 pregnant women with known HIV status received services

Through PEPFAR, South Sudan received $14.5 million to support comprehensive HIV/AIDS prevention, treatment and care programs in FY 2011.

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.

2Total bilateral planned funding does not include funds programmed to central initiatives and allocated for use in country. Funding levels include all sources of PEPFAR funding. All funding levels are planned and subject to change due to reprogramming or the allocation of additional funds upon the Global AIDS Coordinator’s approval.
