Blog Highlights Factors Potentially Affecting U.S. Support for Global AIDS Response in 2013

July 19, 2012

In this post in the Center for Global Development's (CGD) "Global Health Policy" blog, Jenny Ottenhoff, policy outreach associate at the center, says "four big issues will impact U.S. support for the global response to the [AIDS] epidemic over the coming year." According to Ottenhoff, these issues include the FY 2013 budget; the upcoming presidential election; "looming, automatic, across-the-board spending cuts that will be triggered under sequestration in January 2013"; and the potential reauthorization of PEPFAR, which will be decided in 2013. "These storm clouds over AIDS funding could turn out to have a silver lining if austerity creates pressures to improve the global response to AIDS in ways that make it more effective and efficient," she writes (7/18).
