Foreign Assistance to Combat HIV/AIDS, Tuberculosis, and Malaria Inspectors General Coordinated PEPFAR Oversight Plan Fiscal Year 2024 U.S. Department of Health and Human Services, Office of Inspector General
For the FY 2024 coordinated oversight plan, the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services Office of Inspector General (HHS-OIG) plans to conduct PEPFAR program integrity and fraud prevention activities.
HHS' Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) builds upon scientific and technical expertise from decades of HIV control experience and provides support to deliver high-impact, sustainable prevention, care, and treatment of HIV to millions of people globally. The CDC works with foreign Ministries of Health and other partners to strengthen local health infrastructure and promotes the use of data to inform public health policies and strategies, to iteratively improve HIV programming, and measure the impact of global health interventions.
To date, HHS OIG has conducted 32 PEPFAR audits, which have examined the CDC and recipients in 9 countries on 3 continents (Africa, Asia, and North America). HHS OIG's PEPFAR oversight has helped the CDC, HHS staff, and grant recipients learn important grant and program integrity lessons that apply to ongoing and future responses to infectious diseases.
In FY 2024, HHS OIG plans to conduct PEPFAR program integrity and fraud prevention activities. HHS OIG will complete three ongoing audits, initiate two new audits (one domestic to include sub-recipients and one collaborative audit with USAID), share a data analytics dashboard with the PEPFAR implementing inspectors general, and conduct fraud prevention training.
