    • Description:
      The US President’s Emergency Plan for AIDS Relief (PEPFAR) partners with government and parastatal agencies, private institutions, universities and non-governmental organizations in South Africa to improve the country’s public health foundation, to prevent transmission of tuberculosis (TB) and HIV, to provide care and treatment for those who are already infected with HIV and TB, and to strengthen laboratory capacity. In 2004, with the launch of the U.S. President’s Emergency Plan for AIDS Relief (PEPFAR), U.S. government partner agencies including US Agency for International Development (USAID) and the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) expanded the scale and scope of its financial and technical support in South Africa. The National Strategic Plan on HIV, STIs and TB, 2012-2016 (NSP) provides the blueprint for comprehensive HIV prevention, care and treatment services. In addition, the US-South African Partnership Framework, a five-year cooperative agreement signed by South Africa and the United States in December 2010, provides guidelines to transition PEPFAR by strengthen the effectiveness, efficiency and sustainability of South Africa’s national HIV and TB response through joint planning and decision-making. PEPFAR and the South African government are currently developing a Partnership Framework Implementation Plan which will explicitly spell out the scope and pace of this transition. Today, the South African government is leading an unprecedented scale-up of HIV and AIDS prevention, care and treatment services throughout the country. Its improved capacity to respond rapidly to other public health threats is testament to the long-standing partnership between the U.S. and South African governments. The reauthorization of PEPFAR in 2008 means these productive relationships will continue as the government of South Africa moves toward program sustainability. S-0528 •
