  • Derailing Progress: The Human Impact of the U.S. FY2018 Global Health Budget

    The U.S. government's efforts to fight the global AIDS pandemic through both the President's Emergency Plan for AIDS Relief (PEPFAR) and the Global Fund have been transformative in the global AIDS response. The Administration has proposed cuts that would decrease global AIDS funding to PEPFAR and USAID by a total of $800 million in Fiscal Year 2018, representing a 17% decrease. This substantial decrease could dismantle hard-fought progress against HIV, resulting in thousands of HIV treatment disruptions for adults and children, new HIV infections, and preventable AIDS-related deaths.

  • Unprecedented extension of Global Gag Rule puts HIV programmes at risk

    The Alliance comments: "In implementing this controversial policy, the US government will force organisations to choose between either women’s right to comprehensive health services and advice, or vital support for tens of millions of people living with HIV.
