PEPFAR Commits Additional $30 Million to Scale Up Gender-Based Violence Prevention, Response Efforts in Tanzania, Mozambique, DRC

May 7, 2010

PEPFAR on Wednesday announced the decision to commit "an additional $30 million to support three partner countries -- Tanzania, Mozambique, and the Democratic Republic of Congo -- in scaling up GBV [global-based violence] prevention and response efforts," according to a State Department press release, which adds that the "commitment is part of PEPFAR's broader gender response and reflects the Administration's increased focus on gender outlined in the Global Health Initiative" (5/5). A second State Department press release notes that U.S. Global AIDS Coordinator Ambassador Eric Goosby and Ambassador-at-Large Melanne Verveer will participate in a GBC consultation "to ensure efficient and coordinated scale-ups in the three countries" May 6-7 (5/5).
