U.S. President’s Emergency Plan for AIDS Relief (PEPFAR) (February 2016).
PEPFAR has released technical considerations for Country/Regional Operational Plan (COP/ROP) Fiscal Year 2016. These substantially revised technical considerations include input from Chiefs of Mission and provide new details on PEPFAR’s technical support to countries. The technical considerations include funding memos and country-specific applications. PEPFAR will support countries for one-time commodities funds to immediately expand drug availability. Additionally, PEPFAR will continue working with countries to move immediately to provision of antiretroviral therapy for all persons living with HIV (Test and START) by adapting and implementing the 2015 World Health Organization (WHO) guidelines.
