"On January 28, 2003, during his State of the Union Address, President George Bush proposed that the United States spend $15 billion over five years to combat HIV/AIDS through the President's Emergency Plan for AIDS Relief (PEPFAR). The initiative focuses on 15 countries in Africa, Asia, Latin America, and the Caribbean. The plan anticipated spending $10 billion of the $15 billion on the 15 focus countries, $4 billion on 108 non-focus countries and international HIV/AIDS research, and $1 billion on contributions to the Global Fund to Fight AIDS, Tuberculosis, and Malaria. Between FY2004 and FY2008, the initiative was to support care for 10 million people living with AIDS, including children orphaned by AIDS; prevent 7 million new HIV infections; and support efforts to provide antiretroviral medication (ARV) to 2 million HIV-infected people."
