The U.S. President’s Emergency Plan for AIDS Relief (PEPFAR) is the largest source of funding for the HIV response globally. It is critical that this money is used in accordance with the needs of people living with HIV and other affected communities. In order to ensure this, it is important to work with other activists ahead of the COP planning process cycle to develop a priority list of recommendations to demand from PEPFAR. This will be the basis of what civil society demand from the PEPFAR teams throughout the COP cycle.

In order to support civil society in this process the PEPFAR Watch network is holding a series of webinars in January and February 2021 in order to assist in defining the technical detail on community priorities. 

Below are webinar slides and related resources.
