Released: Filed Under: Stoa Policy
Welcome to PEPFAR: It’s a U.S. campaign to fight HIV/AIDS in other nations. It’s seen substantial success over the years and helped millions of people. The US also donates to the Global Fund to Fight AIDS, Tuberculosis and Malaria and UNAIDS, a program operated by the United Nations. US donations to these two organizations are included in the PEPFAR budget, even though PEPFAR is a separate program. Many lives have been saved, but insufficient funding for HIV/AIDS programs in poor countries leaves behind millions more who will get sick and die.
Benefits of PEPFAR include saving lives, better worker productivity, faster pandemic response, improved U.S. image, less violent conflict, etc. It has lots of empirical literature backing it up, so I would encourage you to read a lot about it; the background, the specifics, and the studies. This case has advocacy documenting how many lives would be saved with a 10% increase in PEPFAR, and that’s exactly what the plan does.
