As we mark World AIDS Day and the Obama Administration releases its new “PEPFAR Blueprint,” Health Affairs Blog wanted to remind readers that the July 2012 issue of Health Affairs provides a comprehensive look at PEPFAR, the President’s Emergency Plan for AIDS Relief. The issue contains a wide array of articles by leading voices such as Ambassador Eric Goosby, the US Global AIDS Coordinator in the Department of State, Michael Merson, the founding director of the Duke Global Health Institute, and many others. Health Affairs also published a Health Policy Brief on PEPFAR to accompany the issue.
In addition, readers may view the release event for the July issue on the Health Affairs website. The briefing featured many of the authors from the issue as well as others such as Rep. Jim McDermott (D-WA), the co-chair of the Congressional HIV/AIDS Caucus.
Finally, one the authors in the July issue, Jacob Bor of the Harvard School of Public Health, attended the 2012 International AIDS Conference in Washington DC and reported on the proceedings for Health Affairs Blog.
