Lancet Infectious Diseases Piece Highlights Positive Results of PEPFAR in Mozambique

December 24, 2009

In a Lancet Infectious Diseases Reflection and Reaction piece, a group of "PEPFAR-implementing partners" in Mozambique counter a previous piece published in the journal that says there is "abuse" of PEPFAR money in the country. The authors contend that "since the introduction of PEPFAR, great strides have been made in increasing access to life-saving drugs and developing both infrastructure and human capacity. Exhaustive efforts have been made by the government of Mozambique and its PEPFAR partners in creating those institutional structures necessary to provide transparency, oversight, and improved monitoring and evaluation of implemented activities" (Moon et al., 1/10).
