Blog Examines PEPFAR, Global Fund Collaboration in Haiti

July 19, 2013

"For the past decade, [PEPFAR and the Global Fund to Fight AIDS, Tuberculosis and Malaria] have navigated uncharted waters," Michael Johnson, Global Fund attaché to the permanent mission of the U.S. to the U.N. and other international organizations, writes in the AIDS.gov blog. He provides a brief overview of the partnership and collaboration between the two organizations. Noting his "current role as Global Fund attaché was created to facilitate this collaboration through identifying programmatic areas and opportunities for partnership between PEPFAR and the Global Fund, and enhancing communication among all stakeholders," he states, "Haiti is a great example of how this collaboration can work in-country." He discusses the groups' work in the country and continues, "As we reflect on this, the 10-year anniversary of PEPFAR, it is remarkable what has been achieved in the fight against HIV/AIDS in Haiti and around the world. ... Continued partnership between the Global Fund and PEPFAR will be key to maintaining and scaling up the fight" (7/18).
