Guess Who Just Turned 10?!?

Posted: May 28, 2013 · Posted by: Jee-Young Kim, HAI intern

Yesterday, May 27, 2013, marked the tenth anniversary of President’s Emergency Plan for AIDS Relief (PEPFAR).  Before PEPFAR, an HIV/AIDS diagnosis left many without much hope for treatment.  Ten years ago in 2003, people in developing countries did not have access to life-saving antiretroviral therapy (ART) and life expectancy was grim for those diagnosed with HIV/AIDS. However, in the last decade, the program grew tremendously and simply put, PEPFAR directly supported estimated 5.1 million people to receive treatments around the world.

Over the years, HAI has received PEPFAR funding for projects in Mozambique and Côte d’Ivoire.  Thanks to PEPFAR, HAI’s current project in Côte d’Ivoire counted on the following achievements for 2012:

·  Supported 117 health sites in HIV testing and counseling, prevention of mother-to-child transmission of HIV, care and treatment for HIV, TB, and prevention activities

·  Tested and counseled 52,446 pregnant women for HIV

·  744 newborns received vital interventions to prevent the transmission of the virus from mother to child

·  8,753 people benefited from life-saving treatment for HIV

·  14 community based organizations were supported to provide psychosocial support and a vital link between patients and the health centers.
