Partnerships are the cornerstone of PEPFAR’s success. We need all sectors and diverse partners working together to achieve our collective goals.

PEPFAR works closely with partner countries toward achieving HIV/AIDS epidemic control while promoting the long-term sustainability of their responses. We forge strategic partnerships with the private sector that support and specifically complement our prevention, care, and treatment work addressing key gaps in innovative ways. We coordinate with multilateral partners, such as the Joint United Nations Programme on HIV/AIDS, the Global Fund to Fight AIDS, Tuberculosis, and Malaria, and the World Health Organization, to optimize our investments, strengthen partner country leadership and sustainability, and enhance service delivery.

PEPFAR partners with and strengthens the capacity of civil society and communities, including faith-based communities and organizations [697 KB], recognizing that successful and sustainable HIV/AIDS interventions must involve, be informed by, and tailored to those who we serve.

PEPFAR partners with U.S. chiefs of mission globally and with the diplomatic corps in Washington, DC to advance global health diplomacy and connect health impacts to other U.S. foreign policy priorities, including economic growth, trade, education, and political stability.

PEPFAR seeks expert advice on scientific, implementation, and policy issues related to the global response to HIV/AIDS through its Scientific Advisory Board (SAB), whose members are drawn from a broad array of external stakeholders representative of the global HIV/AIDS community.
