Reflecting on PEPFAR's Role in the Global AIDS Response
July 26, 2012
In this post in The Hill's "Congress Blog," Eric Bond, managing editor of Bread for the World -- a Christian anti-hunger organization -- examines the role of PEPFAR in the global AIDS response, writing, "Progress against HIV/AIDS has been a remarkable achievement in which diverse communities worked together to apply political pressure, find funding, conduct research, and share tactics," and "U.S. foreign assistance programs like [PEPFAR have] provided support to tens of millions of people through prevention, treatment, and care." He continues, "As the International AIDS Conference continues this week in our nation's capital, it is worth reflecting on the part that Bread for the World members have played in fighting AIDS through their support of U.S. foreign assistance programs like PEPFAR," and "it provides a reminder of the importance of keeping such assistance in the federal budget" (7/25).
