The United States is proud to support the international effort to combat HIV/AIDS. Launched in 2003 to combat global AIDS, the U.S. President’s Emergency Plan for AIDS Relief (PEPFAR) is the largest commitment in history by any nation to combat a single disease. With support from PEPFAR and other programs, the global community has made groundbreaking progress in saving lives through HIV prevention, treatment and care services.
