CCIH Faith Community Letter Supporting PEPFAR
September 18, 2023
CCIH led a faith community letter to U.S. Congressional leaders in support of the President’s Emergency Plan for AIDS Relief (PEPFAR) with signatures from 35 faith-based organizations supporting the program’s reauthorization. The letter urges Senate and House leaders to pass a clean, five-year reauthorization before PEPFAR expires on September 30. PEPFAR has saved the lives of over 25 million people, provided treatment for 20.1 million people, prevented mother-to-child transmission for 5.5 million babies, and provided care to 7 million orphans and vulnerable children. Four identical letters were sent to the Senate Foreign Relations Committee leadership, House Foreign Affairs Committee leadership and Senate and House Leadership.
