CDC, Other U.S. Agencies Will Continue Work to Make PEPFAR Succeed

December 6, 2013

Noting President Barack Obama this week signed into law the PEPFAR Stewardship and Oversight Act of 2013, CDC Director Tom Frieden writes in the agency's newsroom, "Along with our colleagues at the HHS Office of Global Affairs, the National Institutes of Health (NIH), the Health Resources and Services Administration (HRSA), the Food and Drug Administration (FDA), and the Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration (SAMHSA), our work with PEPFAR over the next decade will be equally pivotal." He continues, "The heart of what CDC brings to the fight is our ability to share our science and innovation to build capacity across the globe." Frieden adds, "We are closer today than ever before to reaching our goal of an AIDS-free generation. That is a reason to celebrate and, more importantly, to dedicate ourselves even more to scaling up what works to stop this pandemic" (12/4).
