Fifth Annual PEPFAR Report Released

President George W. Bush’s administration on January 12 released its fifth annual report to Congress on the President’s Emergency Plan for AIDS Relief (PEPFAR), which outlines the program’s first five years, according to Agence France-Presse.

U.S. Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice said in a press conference that by last October, PEPFAR helped provide antiretroviral treatment to more than 2.1 million men, women and children living with the virus around the globe since its creation in 2003.

“A disease that was once thought to be a death sentence…is now a disease that America is helping people to live with and to manage, so that they can be a part of their children’s lives going forward,” Rice said. “We now support care for more than 10.1 million people affected worldwide, including more than 4 million orphans and vulnerable children who represent the hope for a brighter future.”

Rice added that PEPFAR has also been instrumental in preventing mother-to-child HIV transmission during nearly 16 million pregnancies, allowing roughly 237,000 babies to be born HIV-negative from positive mothers.

President Bush leaves office January 20.
