President's Emergency Plan for AIDS Relief (PEPFAR) in Cote d'Ivoire
Funding locally, thinking globally.
The President's Emergency Plan for AIDS Relief (PEPFAR) is a five year, fifteen billion dollar program to fight HIV/AIDS in over 100 countries around the world, with targeted initiatives in fifteen of the globe's worst affected countries, including Cote d'Ivoire. This year, PEPFAR is spending more than $84 million dollars in Cote d'Ivoire in partnering with local and international organizations to help reinforce the capacity of Ivoirians to combat this threat to the medical, political, economic, and social stability of the country and West Africa. This unprecedented initiative aims to combat HIV/AIDS by working in close coordination with Ivoirian organizations to prevent the spread of the disease, to treat those who have been infected, and provide care for orphans and vulnerable children who have been affected by the disease. While the funding and resources are coming from the people of the United States, many of the initiatives are coming from grassroots organizations and individuals in Cote d'Ivoire. Together we will defeat this devastating disease and bring hope for future generations to live free of AIDS.
