In honor of World AIDS Day, we look back at the impact that the U.S. Agency for International Development (USAID), the U.S. President's Emergency Plan for AIDS Relief (PEPFAR), and our implementing partners have had, and recognize everyone’s commitment to leadership in combating the HIV and AIDS epidemic worldwide.

As of September 2016, USAID under PEPFAR has:

  • Supported lifesaving antiretroviral treatment for more than 11.5 million people
  • Supported HIV counseling and testing for more than 74.3 million people in FY 2016, including 11.5 million pregnant women with HIV testing and counseling
  • Provided care and support to more than 6.2 million orphans and vulnerable children and their families in FY 2016
  • Supported more than 11.2 million voluntary medical male circumcision procedures in eastern and southern Africa       
  • Reached more than 1 million adolescent girls and young women through the Determined, Resilient, Empowered, AIDS-free, Mentored and Safe (DREAMS) Initiative

This progress is noteworthy, and there is evidence [PDF, 389KB] from PEPFAR’s Population-based HIV Impact Assessments that Zimbabwe, Malawi and Zambia are making significant strides towards controlling the epidemic in older adults and babies.

This year, USAID’s Office of HIV/AIDS celebrates 30 years of continued investments in combating the HIV and AIDS global epidemic. As we celebrate this milestone, USAID is actively continuing to effectively test, treat and care for people around the world, setting our sights on achieving zero new HIV infections. To reach the goal of an AIDS-free generation, we must continue to respond to HIV and AIDS with sustainable solutions and shared partnerships.


To honor USAID's global leadership on HIV and AIDS over the last three decades, USAID's Office of HIV/AIDS launched the #HIV30x30 social media campaign. From November 1 through World AIDS Day, USAID's Global Health Twitter account shared one daily photo, graphic or quote representing the last 30 years of USAID's HIV/AIDS work. Thank you to all of our partners, stakeholders and advocates who participated and promoted the campaign! We encourage you to continue to amplify messaging through your own social media channels.
