What a difference a decade makes. In 2013, the U.S. President’s Emergency Plan for AIDS Relief (PEPFAR) marked ten years of saving lives. Ten years ago, AIDS was truly a death sentence in Africa. It threatened the very foundation of societies – creating millions of orphans, stalling economic development, and leaving countries stuck in poverty.
Today, that picture has been transformed dramatically. Landmark scientific advances, many supported by the United States, coupled with success in implementing effective programs have put an AIDS-free generation within sight. The Blueprint for Creating an AIDS-Free Generation (PEPFAR Blueprint), launched on World AIDS Day 2012, demonstrates PEPFAR’s strong and sustained commitment to fighting this deadly disease. As the Blueprint notes, though, no one country can do it alone: achieving an AIDS-free generation is a shared responsibility.
Last year Congress passed the bi-partisan, bi-cameral PEPFAR Stewardship and Oversight Act of 2013 (P.L. 113-56), which the President signed into law on December 2, 2013. This law extends critical authorities of the PEPFAR program through FY2018, and strengthens oversight and reporting over the PEPFAR program.
