CGD Expert Discusses PEPFAR Funding, New Acceleration Strategy

Center for Global Development: Will PEPFAR “Acceleration” Put Its Money Where Its Mouth Is?
Rachel Silverman, senior policy analyst and assistant director of Global Health Policy at CGD, discusses PEPFAR’s Strategy for Accelerating HIV/AIDS Epidemic Control, which identifies 13 target countries where PEPFAR will focus on accelerating progress toward epidemic control, and examines how funding allocation has changed among the countries receiving bilateral PEPFAR funding. Silverman writes, “It’s clear that money talks — and these figures demonstrate that PEPFAR’s ‘acceleration’ strategy is a serious endeavor, backed up by the potential for large reallocations between its target countries” (7/2).
