ABSTRACT
The article discusses the U.S. President's Emergency Plan for AIDS Relief (PEPFAR), a program implemented to fight acquired immunodeficiency syndrome (AIDS) worldwide beneath the administration of U.S. President George W. Bush. The program is believed by many to be the best plan implemented during the largely unpopular President's term in office. It began with some controversy, as many leaders within the U.S. Republican Party did not approve of supplying condoms. A compromise was found with the public health approach ABC, which stands for abstinence, be faithful, correct and consistent condom use. Praise for the program stemming from the U.S. Institute of Medicine and the U.S. Government Accountability Office is discussed.
