World Politics Review Examines New PEPFAR Strategy, Trump Administration’s Commitment To Ending AIDS

World Politics Review: The Mismatch Between the Rhetoric and Reality of Tillerson’s New PEPFAR Strategy
“…[W]hile PEPFAR may be off the chopping block, the Trump administration’s new strategy seems to perpetuate trends that have activists worried about the long-term fight against HIV/AIDS. … First, for all its talk of U.S. commitment to PEPFAR, the administration seems prepared to follow through on a proposal to cut the program’s budget … Second, the strategy involves a new focus on 13 ‘high-burden’ African countries, with an eye toward achieving epidemic control by 2020. Yet it is unclear what this focus means for other countries receiving PEPFAR support…” (Corey-Boulet, 10/12).
