World AIDS Day 2014 Update: PEPFAR Latest Results Fact Sheet
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, 2014, PEPFAR is supporting life-saving antiretroviral treatment for 7.7 million men, women, and children (of which, 4.5 million are receiving direct support and an additional 3.2 million are benefiting from essential technical support to partner countries).
PEPFAR is now differentiating the type of support provided to beneficiaries, recognizing the greater share of investment made by financial collaboration countries to reach these results. We congratulate countries, including Botswana, Namibia, and the Republic of South Africa, for their expanded leadership in this regard.
The majority of people that PEPFAR directly supports with antiretroviral treatment are in low-income countries.
In Fiscal Year (FY) 2014, PEPFAR supported HIV testing and counseling for more than 14.2 million pregnant women.
For 749,313 of the 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 prevention and treatment services to prevent mother-to-child transmission and improve maternal health.
As of September 30, 2014, PEPFAR has supported more than 6.5 million voluntary medical male circumcision (VMMC) procedures in Eastern and Southern Africa.
In FY 2014, PEPFAR provided care and support for more than 5 million orphans and vulnerable children.
