2012 Latest PEPFAR Results

"...we can end this pandemic. We can beat this disease. We can win this fight. We just have to keep at it, steady, persistent -- today, tomorrow, every day until we get to zero...That’s my pledge. That’s my commitment to all of you. And that’s got to be our promise to each other -- because we’ve come so far and we’ve saved so many lives, we might as well finish the fight."

- President Barack Obama, December 1, 2011

The U.S. President’s Emergency Plan for AIDS Relief (PEPFAR) represents U.S. leadership in meeting the shared responsibility of all global partners to make smart investments to save lives.

Latest PEPFAR Program Results

Reflecting America’s commitment to saving lives affected by HIV/AIDS, PEPFAR is supporting countries in providing HIV prevention, treatment and care to their people.

  • The U.S. directly supported life-saving antiretroviral treatment for more than 5.1 million men, women, and children worldwide as of September 30, 2012.
  • PEPFAR directly supported HIV testing and counseling for more than 11 million pregnant women in fiscal year 2012. PEPFAR supported antiretroviral drug prophylaxis to prevent mother-to-child transmission for more than 750,000 of these women who tested positive for HIV, allowing approximately 230,000 infants to be born HIV-free.
  • PEPFAR directly supported more than 15 million people with care and support, including nearly 5 million orphans and vulnerable children, in fiscal year 2012.
  • PEPFAR directly supported approximately 2 million male circumcision procedures worldwide cumulatively through September 30, 2012.
  • PEPFAR directly supported HIV testing and counseling for more than 46.5 million people in fiscal year 2012, 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. To date, the U.S. has provided more than $7 billion to the Fund. Of the estimated 8 million individuals in low- and middle-income countries who currently receive treatment, nearly 6.8 million receive support through PEPFAR bilateral programs, the Global Fund, or both.
