Obama Administration Should Integrate PEPFAR With Country Health Systems

December 7, 2009

"As the global AIDS epidemic evolves, so should the tools used to fight it," according to a Boston Globe editorial. "For both financial and health reasons, the Obama team should integrate [PEPFAR] more closely with the overall health systems of the countries receiving aid. If, as seems likely, budget pressures in the United States prevent a major hike in PEPFAR funding, American health officials must help recipient nations pick up the slack," the Boston Globe writes.

"Congress called for increased global HIV/AIDS funding in 2008, before the full dimensions of the recession were evident. Now the Obama administration must move toward sustainable HIV/AIDS programs in developing countries, with an eye toward achieving economies as well as better coordination with other public health campaigns," the editorial concludes (12/5).
