Making prevention and treatment possible

HIV and AIDS

Since the launch of USAID's HIV and AIDS program in 1986, the Agency has been on the forefront of the global AIDS crisis.
Today, with more than 34 million people living with HIV worldwide, USAID is a key partner in the U.S. President’s Emergency Plan for AIDS Relief (PEPFAR), the largest and most diverse HIV and AIDS prevention, care and treatment initiative in the world.
As a result of PEPFAR, USAID and other implementing partners have:
  • Provided lifesaving AIDS treatment to more than 5.1 million people and HIV counseling and testing to more than 46.5 million people.
  • Supported more than 11 million pregnant women with HIV testing and counseling and provided prevention of mother-to-child transmission (PMTCT) services to more than 750,000 HIV-positive women. As a result approximately 230,000 infants were born free of HIV.
  • Reached nearly 15 million people with care and support, including more than 4.5 million orphans and vulnerable children.
  • Supported approximately 2 million male circumcision procedures worldwide cumulatively.
