President Bush's Emergency Plan for AIDS Relief (PEPFAR/Emergency Plan) is a bold call for action abroad and an equally bold call for a "new way of doing business" here at home. Under the leadership of the U.S. Global AIDS Coordinator, new structures and systems have been established at every level of the U.S. Government working in international HIV/AIDS to ensure a unified strategic approach to combating the epidemic abroad.
The implementing agencies of the U.S. Government have heeded the Coordinator's call to "leave their uniforms at the door" and come together in the common cause of turning the tide against the HIV/AIDS pandemic.
The primary implementing departments and agencies of the Emergency Plan are:-- Department of State (DoS)
-- U.S. Agency for International Development (USAID)
-- Department of Defense (DoD)
-- Department of Commerce (DoC)
-- Department of Labor (DoL)
-- Department of Health and Human Services (HHS)
-- Peace Corps
