President Obama announced the new goal of helping host countries get six million persons living with HIV (PLHIV) on antiretroviral therapy (ART) by the end of 2013. The PEPFAR Track 1.0 Care and Treatment Program represents the United States' government largest HIV commitment to date, providing $2.2 billion from 2004-2011 to Elizabeth Glaser Pediatric AIDS Foundation, Harvard University, ICAP-Columbia University, and the AIDS Relief Consortium. As of July, 2011, PEPFAR Track 1.0 programming has supported provision of ART for 936,106 PLHIV, representing 26% of 3.6 million PLHIV on ART directly attributable to PEPFAR. This was accomplished through the implementation of novel approaches to ensure rapid, high-quality, and sustainable treatment scale-up. The workshop will share lessons about how programme efficiencies and capacities were designed, scaled up and transitioned successfully to local partners. Diverse country representatives will address how these lessons can be leveraged to meet the ambitious treatment goals.
