What’s at Stake

Even before COVID-19, global HIV prevention goals were unacceptably off-target. Now, without immediate, aggressive action, we risk a harmful escalation in new HIV infections, negative impacts on the lives of people living with HIV, and squandering the substantive resources that have been dedicated to fighting HIV/AIDS for the past four decades.

Our Response

GAPP advocates for the most evidence-based, effective, and well-funded U.S. global HIV response. In addition, we work to ensure that the legacy of U.S. leadership in the fight against HIV and AIDS is understood and maintained.

How We Work

GAPP works closely with its members and with U.S. leadership to ensure robust financing, strengthen policy, improve service delivery, facilitate an enabling environment, and build on the HIV/AIDS systems and infrastructure built over the past four decades.

Call to action

Since it was established two decades ago, PEPFAR has consistently contributed about 1/5 of the global resources to fight HIV/AIDS. However, it has been flat funded for decades. To meet global targets, we must increase investments in PEPFAR.
