No program better demonstrates the power of a well-executed global health initiative than the President’s Emergency Plan for AIDS Relief (PEPFAR). It was established by President George W. Bush in 2003 with bipartisan support from Congress. Over the past decade, PEPFAR has not only reduced the mortality and morbidity from HIV/AIDS, but may have had key secondary effects that enhance U.S. national security interests.

Next year, PEPFAR’s funding will come up for reauthorization before Congress. On December 12 BPC hosted a discussion on the impact of PEPFAR, the importance of continuing U.S. investments in global health, and how these investments can be one of the country’s most effective diplomatic tools.
