ABSTRACT

President's Emergency Plan for Aids Relief: State Should Improve Data Quality and Assess Long-Term Resource Needs, Report to the Chairman, Committee on Foreign Relations, U.S. Senate   [open pdf - 7MB]

From the Highlights: "To address the HIV epidemic, the U.S. Global AIDS Coordinator oversees about $6 billion annually across several U.S. implementing agencies and two international organizations through the PEPFAR [President's Emergency Plan for AIDS Relief] program. According to S/GAC [State's Office of the Global AIDS Coordinator], without concentrated efforts to reach the growing youth population, progress achieved toward controlling the HIV epidemic could be reversed. GAO [Government Accountability Office] was asked to review PEPFAR's response to the growing youth population for achieving its goals. This report examines (1) what is known about the growing youth population and HIV in Sub-Saharan Africa, (2) PEPFAR's response to reach the growing youth population, (3) the extent to which S/GAC's PEPFAR program-level budget data are reliable for a resource trends analysis to inform future programing, and (4) the extent to which PEPFAR officials have determined the long-term resources needed to achieve and sustain HIV epidemic control given known factors. GAO reviewed PEPFAR documents and budget data, and reports by UNAIDS [United Nations Program on HIV/AIDS] and other entities. GAO also interviewed PEPFAR officials from State, implementing agencies, and country teams in Kenya, Mozambique, South Africa, and Uganda."
