CSIS Report Summarizes U.S. Congressional Trip To South Africa To Evaluate PEPFAR Strategy

Center for Strategic & International Studies: Energizing the Fight against HIV in South Africa
Richard Downie, deputy director and fellow in the CSIS Africa Program; Audrey Jackson, senior fellow at the CSIS Global Health Policy Center; and Sahil Angelo, program manager and research associate for the CSIS Global Health Policy Center, report on a February 2016 U.S. congressional staff visit to South Africa. The report summary states, “The visit came at a time of considerable economic and political turbulence in South Africa. These dynamics create a challenging environment for the United States to implement a new strategy for its flagship global health policy, the President’s Emergency Plan for AIDS Relief (PEPFAR). Despite this, positive progress was observed that provides a platform to reach ambitious targets for significantly reducing HIV prevalence. Continued progress will be contingent upon the completion of major reforms to South Africa’s health system” (5/5).
