The Office of the U.S. Global AIDS Coordinator (S/GAC) is responsible for implementing the U.S. President's Emergency Plan for AIDS Relief (PEPFAR) -- the U.S. Government initiative to help save the lives of those suffering from HIV/AIDS around the world. This historic commitment is the largest by any nation to combat a single disease internationally and PEPFAR investments also help alleviate suffering from other diseases across the global health spectrum. PEPFAR is driven by a shared responsibility among donor and partner nations and others to make smart investments to save lives. Thanks in large part to U.S. leadership tremendous progress has been made in the fight against global AIDS. PEPFAR is supporting countries in providing HIV prevention treatment and care to their people. As the cornerstone of the U.S. President’s Global Health Initiative (GHI) PEPFAR represents U.S. leadership in meeting the shared responsibility of all global partners to make smart investments to save lives. With a special focus on improving the health of women newborns and children the Global Health Initiative’s goal is to save the greatest number of lives by increasing and building upon what works and supporting countries as they work to improve the health of their own people. The U.S. Global AIDS Coordinator who reports directly to the Secretary of State oversees and directs all resources and activities of the U.S. Government to implement PEPFAR and combat the global HIV/AIDS pandemic including U.S. contributions to the Global Fund to Fight AIDS Tuberculosis and Malaria and relations with other countries and multilateral organizations. S/GAC leads an integrated U.S. global HIV/AIDS prevention treatment and care program; works with partner governments; multilateral organizations; the private sector; faith-based and non-governmental organizations to foster engagement in the fight against HIV/AIDS; and ensures that U.S. Government policies are harmonious programs are synergistic and operations are efficient and effective.
