Friends of the Global Fight: 15 Years of PEPFAR: Past Success and Future Progress
John McMannis, program research and impact manager at Friends of the Global Fight, highlights discussions from a recent event, hosted by Friends and several other organizations, recognizing the 15th anniversary of PEPFAR. McMannis notes, “[T]here were serious doubts in the beginning about the impact that U.S. funding could have in the fight against HIV/AIDS internationally and questions about how PEPFAR and the Global Fund would work together. Were it not for strong bipartisan support for PEPFAR and the Global Fund over the past eight Congresses and three presidential administrations, then these doubts might have come true” (9/28).
