The PEPFAR Monitoring, Evaluation, and Reporting (MER) Database is a tool for exploring the impact of PEPFAR and the current state of the HIV/AIDS epidemic.
The U.S. President's Emergency Plan for AIDS Relief (PEPFAR) delivers life-saving services to people affected by the HIV/AIDS epidemic in 36 country and regional programs. Founded in 2003, PEPFAR is the largest investment in combating a single disease by a single country in history. To date, more than $55.75 billion has been programmed through bilateral investments in countries.
Since 2015, PEPFAR has greatly expanded access to and availability of programmatic performance data, including at the district and facility level on its own data platform.
amfAR, The Foundation for AIDS Research, is one of the world’s leading nonprofit organizations dedicated to the support of AIDS research, HIV prevention, treatment education, and advocacy. Since 1985, amfAR has invested more than $517 million in its programs and has awarded more than 3,300 grants to research teams worldwide.
This database is a creation of amfAR's Public Policy Office and developed to help expand access to HIV programmatic data to strengthen civil society organizations ability to monitor, oversee, and engage with the PEPFAR program at a more robust level. It complements our PEPFAR funding database.
Funding from PEPFAR supports HIV testing, treatment, care, and prevention for adults and children affected by the HIV/AIDS epidemic.
HIV testing, treatment, and prevention of mother-to-child transmission of HIV are core components of a strategy to end HIV.
