This is a joint posting with Steve RosenzweigCGD's HIV/AIDS Monitor team has suggested in a policy memo addressed to the U.S. President-Elect and his Transition Team that the new administration move quickly to publicly release data from the President's Emergency Plan for AIDS Relief (PEPFAR). Releasing funding and programmatic data which have already been collected at tax payer expense would make possible informed analysis on the impact of the billions of dollars that the U.S. spends to help developing countries address the pandemic, and thereby help to increase the impact of spending going forward.The one-page memo draws on previous HIV/AIDS Monitor work, including:
- PEPFAR Reauthorization: Improving Transparency in U.S. Funding for HIV/AIDS;
- New PEPFAR Data: The Numbers Behind the Stories; and
- Following the Funding for HIV/AIDS: A Comparative Analysis of the Funding Practices of PEPFAR, the Global Fund and World Bank MAP in Mozambique, Uganda and Zambia.
