PEPFAR, first proposed by the President Bush, was authorized by Congress in 2003 as a five-year, $15 billion initiative to combat the global HIV/AIDS epidemic, as well as TB and malaria, through U.S. bilateral efforts and contributions to the Global Fund to Fight AIDS, Tuberculosis and Malaria. It is the single largest source of support for global health by the U.S. government. In 2008, Congress reauthorized PEFPAR for an additional five years at up to $48 billion for the three diseases.  This legislation also mandated a five-year strategy to expand and improve global HIV/AIDS programs. The much anticipated strategy lays out the broad goals and objectives for PEPFAR and comes as the U.S. government is in the process of developing a broader strategy for its global health portfolio and re-examining foreign aid and development programs more generally. The event is part of Kaiser’s ongoing efforts inform policy discussions about the U.S. role in global health.
