In May 2003, the U.S. Congress passed bipartisan legislation authorizing a bold new plan to combat a fast-spreading, deadly epidemic. In the 15+ years since, the President’s Emergency Plan for AIDS Relief – widely referred to as PEPFAR – has become the largest global health program focused on a single disease in history. Investing over $80 billion in HIV/Aids treatment, prevention, and research, PEPFAR has saved millions of lives and put 14 million people on treatment.
The Harvard Global Health Institute will host a one-day symposium to explore what enabled this visionary program, and to showcase how it has transformed not just the worldwide HIV/AIDS response but global health delivery more broadly.
