Centers for Disease Control and Prevention
CDC has supported EGPAF’s prevention, care and treatment programs since 2004 with funds from the President’s Emergency Plan for HIV/AIDS Relief (PEPFAR). The largest program, Project HEART (Helping Expand Antiretroviral Therapy for Children and Families), seeks to reduce morbidity and expand prevention efforts among HIV-positive people through increased access to and utilization of quality care and treatment services. Project HEART currently works in five countries: Côte d’Ivoire, Mozambique, South Africa, Tanzania, and Zambia. As of March 2011, over 350,000 individuals were on ART as a result of Project HEART, and almost 400,000 HIV-positive mothers had received prophylaxis and support to reduce HIV transmission to their children. CDC also funds bilateral HIV prevention, care and treatment programs in
Côte d’Ivoire, Kenya, Mozambique, and Tanzania. To date, CDC has provided EGPAF with over $500 million in funding.
