MCC, PEPFAR Launch Partnership For Sustainable HIV/AIDS Response

The Millennium Challenge Corporation (MCC) and PEPFAR on Friday launched a three-year partnership to more effectively respond to HIV/AIDS. In MCC’s “Poverty Reduction Blog,” Deborah von Zinkernagel, acting U.S. global AIDS coordinator, and Daniel Yohannes, CEO of MCC, write, “MCC’s experience with country-owned assistance programs together with PEPFAR’s excellence in providing support to national programs will come together to help evolve and enhance how PEPFAR resources are planned strategically together with partner countries, with the aim of making real and impactful progress toward an AIDS-free generation. … To be sustainable, it is critical that partner countries increasingly lead, manage, and implement their own HIV/AIDS response. These solutions must truly be national and include stakeholders across government and party lines, civil society, faith-based organizations, the private sector, and donor partners…” (3/21).
