Recognizing PEPFAR's 10th Anniversary
May 24, 2013
Writing in the Center for Global Development (CGD) blog, Amanda Glassman, director of global health policy and a senior fellow at CGD, and Jenny Ottenhoff, policy outreach associate at the center, note the 10-year anniversary of PEPFAR and highlight "some major areas of consensus" from the Institute of Medicine (IOM), the Government Accountability Office (GAO), and the PEPFAR Scientific Advisory Board's Data Working Group (DWG) "that we think are reflective of PEPAR's past and future." They outline successes and challenges as the program "matures from an emergency program to a sustainable, long-term response," and they continue, "So while we mark PEPFAR's 10th birthday and applaud the program's success, we're pleased that PEPFAR has also received 800+ pages of recommendations for the future. After all, this milestone should be less about celebration, and more about reforms that will usher PEPFAR through another decade of progress marked by sustainable partnerships with countries" (5/23).
