UNAIDS and PEPFAR announce dramatic reductions in new HIV infections among children in the 21 countries most affected by HIV in Africa
Concerted global efforts have led to a 60% drop in new infections among children, which has averted 1.2 million new HIV infections among children in 21 priority countries since 2009
What is ACT?
Launched at the 2014 U.S. African Leaders Summit, the Accelerating Children’s HIV/AIDS Treatment (ACT) Initiative is a two-year effort to double the number of children receiving life-saving antiretroviral treatment (ART) in nine high-priority countries in sub-Saharan Africa. The $200 million initiative represents a joint investment by the U.S. President’s Emergency Plan for AIDS Relief (PEPFAR) and the Children's Investment Fund Foundation (CIFF).

PEPFAR Gender Strategy: Addressing gender norms and inequities is essential to reducing HIV risk and increasing access to HIV prevention, care and treatment services for women and men. In low and middle-income countries worldwide, HIV is the leading cause of death and disease in women in reproductive age. In sub-Saharan Africa, 60% of those living with HIV are women and in some of these countries, prevalence among young women aged 15-24 years is on average about three times higher than among men of the same age.
