World AIDS Day 2013 Update: Latest PEPFAR Results

The U.S. President’s Emergency Plan for AIDS Relief (PEPFAR) represents America’s commitment to saving lives and the shared responsibility of all global partners toward achieving an AIDS-Free Generation.

  • As of September 30, 2013, PEPFAR is supporting life-saving antiretroviral treatment for 6.7 million men, women, and children worldwide. This far exceeds President Obama’s 2011 World AIDS Day goal of 6 million people on treatment -- a four-fold increase (from 1.7 million in 2008) since the start of this Administration.
  • In Fiscal Year (FY) 2013, PEPFAR supported HIV testing and counseling for more than 12.8 million pregnant women. For 780,000 of these women who tested positive for HIV, PEPFAR provided antiretroviral medications to prevent mother-to-child transmission (PMTCT) of the virus. Due to PEPFAR support, 95 percent of these babies were born HIV-free (including 240,000 that would otherwise have been infected).
    • Over the past two years, over 1.5 million HIV-positive pregnant women received these interventions to prevent mother-to-child transmission and improve maternal health, meeting the President’s 2011 World AIDS Day goal.
  • As of September 30, 2013, PEPFAR will have supported more than 4.2 million voluntary medical male circumcision (VMMC) procedures in east and southern Africa; by the end of 2013, PEPFAR will have reached the President’s 2011 World AIDS Day VMMC goal of 4.7 million.
  • PEPFAR supported 17 million people with care and support, including more than 5 million orphans and vulnerable children, in FY 2013.
    PEPFAR supported HIV testing and counseling for more than 57.7 million people in FY 2013, providing a critical entry point to prevention, treatment, and care.
  • The U.S. is the first and largest donor to the Global Fund to Fight AIDS, Tuberculosis and Malaria. As a result of the significant investment by the U.S. in the Global Fund, of the estimated 9.7 million individuals in low- and middle-income countries who currently receive treatment, nearly 9.1 million receive support through PEPFAR bilateral programs, the Global Fund, or both.
