Accelerating progress toward the end of AIDS in India

Post Date: 

On January 28, the U.S. President's Emergency Plan for AIDS Relief (PEPFAR) will mark its 20th anniversary as a global effort that has invested $100 billion into the HIV/AIDS response and saved more than 25 million lives.

In India, the impact is felt by millions who access HIV prevention, testing, life-saving treatment, and care.
The third largest HIV/AIDS epidemic in the world, more than 2.4 million people in India are living with HIV. Still, about 900,000 people are not linked to treatment, and more than half a million people do not know they are living with HIV.

As a PEPFAR-funded USAID project implemented through the Johns Hopkins University School of Medicine, ACCELERATE is closing gaps in the response with innovative models that bring HIV services to the most vulnerable populations.
