PEPFAR is life for millions - but without better prevention, the AIDS burden doubles every 25 years

In this blog Mead Over fom the Centre for Global Development assesses the impact of PEPFAR, US funding for AIDS treatment which has prevented millions of deaths, mostly in Africa.

Without PEPFAR, it’s safe to say that almost all of these countries would be stuck near zero coverage, toward the left side of the graph. Instead, 49 percent of HIV-infected people were receiving life-saving treatment in 2014, rising to 56 percent by 2015... But despite these accomplishments, much more work is needed to reach the end of the epidemic.

The blog provides recommendations to improve PEPFAR performance and help close the gap.
