As the largest and most impactful global health initiative ever undertaken, the U.S. President’s Emergency Plan for AIDS Relief is credited with saving millions of lives and changing the trajectory of the global HIV epidemic.

Since its creation in 2003, PEPFAR has set aside more than $80 billion for HIV bilateral programs across the globe. By comparison, the Global Fund to Fight AIDS, Tuberculosis, and Malaria has disbursed close to $20 billion for HIV/AIDS since 2002 — a total that includes contributions from PEPFAR.
