PEPFAR 2017 Annual Report To Congress Highlights Successes, Encourages Sustained Support

Center for Global Health Policy’s “Science Speaks”: PEPFAR 2017 Report to Congress tells a success story at its halfway point
Antigone Barton, senior editor and writer of “Science Speaks,” discusses the PEPFAR 2017 Annual Report to Congress. Barton concludes, “[T]he report notes HIV is not controlled yet, and with an approaching boom of adolescents (thanks in part to PEPFAR success in averting infant infections and deaths), the advances made will face their biggest test yet, if not supported. The work, the report says, is only halfway there. But, it indicates, if PEPFAR’s history is a guide, it has the ingredients of a story that will make history” (3/7).
