Transforming the Global HIV Epidemic

As a key implementing agency of the U.S. President’s Emergency Plan for AIDS Relief (PEPFAR), CDC is at the forefront of the global response to the world’s two deadliest infectious diseases – HIV and TB. In 2020, CDC’s efforts contributed to more than 50 percent of key PEPFAR outcomes. CDC teams across the globe are working to ensure continued access to treatment while reducing the opportunity for exposure to COVID-19.
