United States President's Emergency Plan for AIDS Relief (PEPFAR)

The U.S. President's Emergency Plan for AIDS Relief (PEPFAR) is the U.S. government’s response to the global HIV/AIDS epidemic and represents the largest commitment by any nation to address a single disease in history. Thanks to American leadership and generosity, alongside the work of many partners, PEPFAR has saved millions of lives, averted millions of infections, and changed the course of the epidemic. Through PEPFAR, the U.S. has supported a world safer and more secure from infectious disease threats. We have demonstrably strengthened the global capacity to prevent, detect, and respond to new and existing risks – which ultimately enhances global health security and protects America’s borders. PEPFAR is led and managed by the U.S. Department of State's Office of the U.S. Global AIDS Coordinator and Health Diplomacy and implemented by seven U.S. government departments and agencies, leveraging the power of a whole-of-government approach to controlling the HIV/AIDS epidemic.
