Plan for a Short-term Evaluation of PEPFAR Implementation:
Letter Report #1

Mandated by Congress in P.L. 108-25, this new Institute of Medicine (IOM) letter report reviews the President's Emergency Plan for AIDS Relief in 15 focus countries that seek to prevent seven million HIV infections, provide two million HIV-infected people with retroviral therapy, and care for ten million people affected by HIV/AIDS -- a $15 billion international public health initiative. The report outlines the evaluation questions and the approach to answering them. Over the next three or fours months, the IOM will be visiting focus countries to evaluate the program on the ground with a final report expected in late 2006.

This briefing was for members of Congress and congressional staff only. The report was publicly released on October 31, 2005 and can be found, in its entirety, on the Web site of the National Academies Press.
