In spite of enormous progress in recent years on scaling up HIV treatment, close to half of the 37 million people living with HIV worldwide still don’t have access to lifesaving medications. Through the policy office, amfAR is a leading advocate for continued robust U.S. support for the global HIV response through critical programs such as PEPFAR—the U.S. President’s Emergency Plan for AIDS Relief—and the Global Fund to Fight AIDS, Tuberculosis and Malaria.
amfAR Launches New PEPFAR Advocacy Resource
amfAR has announced the launch of a new web tool that will enable global HIV advocates to access a wide range of programmatic PEPFAR data. The aim is to help civil society advocates, journalists, and researchers to better understand, engage with, and report on U.S. global investments in HIV programming through the President’s Emergency Plan for AIDS Relief (PEPFAR). The PEPFAR Monitoring, Evaluation, and Reporting Database is freely available at http://mer.amfar.org.
