Assessing The President's Emergency Plan For AIDS Relief: 
Past Achievements And Future Prospects For PEPFAR
Tuesday, July 10
8:00 am - 3:15 pm

On Tuesday, July 10, Health Affairs will release its July 2012 issue, "Assessing The President's Emergency Plan For AIDS Relief."  The volume contains a thorough examination of PEPFAR, the program of bilateral U.S. assistance begun in 2003 to support countries in their battle against HIV/AIDS. The effort has been described as the largest program of U.S. aid since the Marshall Plan. 
 
The July thematic issue of Health Affairs contains articles examining the successes scored by PEPFAR, the lessons learned, and the opportunities to move forward toward an "AIDS-free generation." The issue and its dissemination have been funded in part by the Office of the U.S. Global AIDS Coordinator; Merck & Co., Inc.; BD; and the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services.
