USAID Blog Recognizes 10 Years of PEPFAR Ahead of World AIDS Day

November 25, 2013

USAID is observing World AIDS Day on December 1 "by celebrating 10 years of our HIV and AIDS work under PEPFAR," the agency's "IMPACTblog" notes in two separate posts. In the first post, Goli Fassihian, senior public affairs adviser for the Global Health Bureau's Office of HIV/AIDS, writes, "PEPFAR was, and continues to be, ambitious, visionary, and far-reaching," adding, "[W]e can confidently say that the program has saved millions of lives and delivered hope to communities where it was so desperately needed" (11/22). In a separate post, Elizabeth Walsh of Management Sciences for Health (MSH), and Lourdes de la Peza, a senior technical adviser for the Leadership, Management & Governance (LMG) Project, examine how the LMG Project has "helped support the PLAN-Health Nigeria project, funded by PEPFAR through USAID and managed by [MSH], to pilot Leadership Development Program Plus (LDP+), which focuses on empowering teams to improve [prevention of mother-to-child transmission of HIV (PMTCT)] results" (11/23).
