Center for Global Development Blog Examines PEPFAR Stewardship and Oversight Act of 2013

October 1, 2013

Writing in the Center for Global Development's (CGD) "Global Health Policy" blog, Policy Outreach Associate Jenny Ottenhoff examines the PEPFAR Stewardship and Oversight Act of 2013 (S 1545/HR 3177), "which aims to extend and modernize the landmark U.S. global AIDS program." She writes, "The bill is short (18 pages!), has bipartisan support, and doesn't contain any major overhauls to the (very good) existing policy." Ottenhoff adds, "The bill isn't a full reauthorization like in years past; it simply extends provisions in the current law that would otherwise expire on September 30 and updates PEPFAR's annual reporting requirements to strengthen congressional oversight of the program," and she outlines some specifics of the bill (9/30).
