White House Summit on Sustainable Development

White House Summit on International Development

On October 21, 2008, President George W. Bush hosted the White House Summit on International Development in Washington, DC. 

In attendance were the President, Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice, Liberian President Ellen Johnson Sirleaf, musician and activist Bob Geldof, National Security Advisor Stephen Hadley, U.S. Global AIDS Coordinator Ambassador Mark Dybul, and other public and private-sector leaders. 

The Summit focused on the core principles of the New Era of Development, which include country ownership, good governance, results-based programs and accountability, and the importance of economic growth.

President Bush, who addressed the Summit, noted the astounding success of PEPFAR and other development initiatives:

"I'm honored to be the President of such a nation filled with people -- filled with people of such generosity and goodness. I'm proud to join with all of you in ushering in a new era of development. This is an historic commitment that we all can be proud of -- one that will secure a bright future for our partners in the developing world, one that will make America a better place."

    President Bush Signs PEPFAR Reauthorization Legislation

    President George W. Bush is joined by Annette Lantos, right, and invited guests Wednesday, July 30, 2008 in the East Room of the White House, as he signs H.R. 5501, the Tom Lantos and Henry J. Hyde UnOn July 30, 2008, President Bush signed into law H.R. 5501, the Tom Lantos and Henry J. Hyde United States Global Leadership Against HIV/AIDS, Tuberculosis, and Malaria Reauthorization Act. In 2003, President Bush launched the President's Emergency Plan for AIDS Relief (PEPFAR) to combat global HIV/AIDS - the largest commitment by any nation to combat a single disease in human history. The new legislation will dramatically increase the financial commitment to this fight - authorizing up to $48 billion to combat global HIV/AIDS, tuberculosis, and malaria. Under this legislation, the next phase of the American people's commitment to those suffering from HIV/AIDS will support treatment for at least 3 million people; prevention of 12 million new infections; and care for 12 million people, including 5 million orphans and vulnerable children.
