In 2003, the United States launched the President’s Emergency Plan for AIDS Relief — the world’s largest investment in a single disease. 15 years later, what has PEPFAR accomplished and — in the face of changing demographics, threats to funding, and a new strategy — what’s in store for the battle against HIV/AIDS?

As part of an ongoing look at the legacy of PEPFAR, Engagement Editor Kate Midden and Associate Editor Adva Saldinger discuss the origins of the historical program — and how the program may evolve into the future.
