Hi, friend. Yes! The U.S. Embassy of the U.S. Department of State has announced an open competition for organizations to submit applications to carry out an innovative program on HIV and AIDS to engage the Ghanaian media on accurate reporting, innovative educative programs and HIV AntiStigma campaign to end epidemic control.
- Launched by President George W. Bush in 2003, the U.S. President’s Emergency Plan for AIDS Relief (PEPFAR) is a U.S. government initiative to address the global HIV/AIDS epidemic and help save the lives of those suffering from the disease.
- As of May 2020, PEPFAR has provided about $90 billion in cumulative funding for HIV/AIDS treatment, prevention, and research since its inception, making it the largest global health program focused on a single disease in history.
- PEPFAR is implemented by a combination of U.S. government agencies in over 50 countries and overseen by the Global AIDS Coordinator at the U.S. Department of State.
- PEPFAR is currently guided by two main strategies: the overarching strategy laid out in PEPFAR 3.0 – Controlling the Epidemic: Delivering on the Promise of an AIDS-free Generation and a complementary, more targeted strategy for accelerating implementation of PEPFAR efforts in certain high-burden countries laid out in the PEPFAR Strategy for Accelerating HIV/AIDS Epidemic Control (2017-2020).
The deadline for submitting the applications is 18-Sep-21.
