Global Programs


Presidents’s Emergency Plan for AIDS Relief (PEPFAR) The President's Emergency Plan for AIDS Relief (Emergency Plan/PEPFAR) is the largest commitment ever by any nation for an international health initiative dedicated to a single disease – a five-year, $15 billion, multifaceted approach to combating the disease in more than 120 countries around the world

  • International Cooperation
    The President's Emergency Plan for AIDS Relief (PEPFAR/Emergency Plan) seeks to promote comprehensive responses to HIV/AIDS at the country level by building international commitment to coordinated action.
  • Public-Private Partnerships
    Recognizing that partnerships are needed to sustain programs for the long-term, Congress authorized PEPFAR to promote public-private partnerships as a priority element of U.S. strategy to combat the HIV/AIDS pandemic and other global health crises.
  • Countries
    The U.S. President's Emergency Plan for AIDS Relief is working around the world to combat HIV/AIDS. Through partnerships with host nations, the Emergency Plan is creating hope for a brighter future. In FY 2006 the United States Government provided bilateral, regional and volunteer programs to assist 114 countries in HIV/AIDS prevention, treatment and care activities.
