World AIDS Day 2020


  • The U.S. government theme for World AIDS Day 2020 is Ending the HIV/AIDS Epidemic: Impact and Resilience.
  • In honor of World AIDS Day, PEPFAR is proud to announce its latest annual program results showing that it has saved 20 million lives, supported several countries to achieve HIV epidemic control and the UNAIDS 90-90-90 targets, and significantly strengthened global health security.
  • PEPFAR’s latest results demonstrate the remarkable life-saving impact of the program over the past 18 years, its unmatched capacity to protect and advance HIV gains even in the face of severe adversity, such as with the COVID-19 pandemic, and the work that remains to control and ultimately end the AIDS epidemic as public health threat around the world.
