Secretary of State John Kerry provided video remarks for the 2014 PEPFAR (President’s Emergency Plan for AIDS Relief) Annual Meeting in Durban, South Africa. Among other things, Secretary Kerry reflected on PEPFAR’s progress under the Obama Administration to achieve an AIDS-free generation and, in an effort “to have greater transparency, greater accountability, and to work with our partners to reach more men and women,” called “on PEPFAR and U.S. Government agencies to establish an Interagency Collaborative for Program Improvement,” noting that “[w]ith this effort, [the U.S.] will bring together the key experts implementing PEPFAR across U.S. agencies. These leaders will share data and share best practices in order to deliver better quality services at a better cost.”
