May marks the 15th anniversary of one of the United States'most important and successful initiatives—the President's Emergency Plan For AIDS Relief,universally known as PEPFAR.First proposed by then-President George W.Bush in January 2003,the initiative has since invested over$80 billion dollars to address HIV/AIDS worldwide and transformed the lives of millions of people around the globe.


五月是美国最重要和最成功的举措之一,总统的艾滋病紧急救援计划(PEPFAR)15周年。这项倡议于2003年1月由时任美国总统小布什首次提出,此后已投资800多亿美元,在全球范围内解决艾滋病毒/艾滋病问题,并改变了全球数百万人的生活。

The idea was to fight the HIV/AIDS epidemic in the hardest-hit regions of the developing world.The initiative's first 15 focus countries were Botswana,Cote d'Ivoire,Ethiopia,Guyana,Haiti,Kenya,Mozambique,Namibia,Nigeria,Rwanda,South Africa,Tanzania,Uganda,Vietnam,and Zambia.In the initial five years,the program aimed to support treatment for 2 million people,prevent 7 million new infections,and care for 10 million people infected or affected by HIV/AIDS.These were stunning goals at a time when fewer than 50,000 Africans had access to HIV/AIDS treatment.


这个想法是为了在发展中世界受影响最严重的地区防治艾滋病毒/艾滋病流行病。该倡议的前15个重点国家是博茨瓦纳、科特迪瓦、埃塞俄比亚、圭亚那、海地、肯尼亚、莫桑比克、纳米比亚、尼日利亚、卢旺达、南非、坦桑尼亚、乌干达、越南和赞比亚。在最初的五年里,该计划旨在支持200万人的治疗,防止700万新的感染,并照顾1000万受艾滋病毒/艾滋病感染或影响的人。在只有不到5万非洲人能够获得艾滋病毒/艾滋病治疗的时候,这些目标是惊人的。


Fifteen years and two 5-year extensions of the program later,PEPFAR supports HIV/AIDS treatment for 14 million men,women and children in over 50 countries.That's twice as many people as we had just four and a half years ago,said U.S.Global AIDS Coordinator and U.S.Special Representative for Global Health Diplomacy Deborah Birx at a recent press conference.Through our work with the countries and partners,we've dramatically increased the effectiveness of the program.


15年后,该方案又延长了2个5年,PEPFAR为50多个国家的1400万男性、女性和儿童提供了艾滋病毒/艾滋病治疗支持。美国全球艾滋病协调员、美国全球卫生外交特别代表黛博拉·比克斯在最近的一次记者招待会上说,这是我们四年半前的两倍。通过与各国和合作伙伴的合作,我们大大提高了项目的有效性。
