Birx, U.S. global AIDS coordinator and U.S. special representative for global health diplomacy, discusses new PEPFAR partnerships and results announced at the 22nd International AIDS Conference that ended Friday in Amsterdam, including the MenStar Coalition and data from PEPFAR-funded Population-based HIV Impact Assessments (PHIAs). Birx concludes, “This week in Amsterdam showed us both how far we have come and what is needed to accelerate progress, learn from our successes, and fill critical gaps. As we depart AIDS 2018, we look forward to continuing our partnerships with governments, civil society, scientists, and implementers, with renewed energy and urgency” (7/27).
