Watch A Devex Conversation with Ambassador Deborah L. Birx, Feb. 4, 8:30-9:30 a.m. ET, 2:30 p.m. CET.

Devex and Chemonics are hosting an exclusive conversation with Ambassador Deborah Birx to shed light on what's in store for the U.S. President's Emergency Plan for AIDS Relief in the year ahead.

Birx, the U.S. global AIDS coordinator and special representative for global health diplomacy, sits down with Devex President and Editor-in-Chief Raj Kumar to discuss what’s happening at PEPFAR, following stagnating levels of funding and proposed budget cuts — against the backdrop of the 2020 presidential elections.

Uncertainty around PEPFAR’s funding and future remain an important concern to global health organizations and those impacted by PEPFAR funding changes. This exclusive interview with Birx sheds light on some of these issues, as well as what's to come.
