Grantees' Use of President's Emergency Plan for AIDS Relief Funds
In more than 60 countries, Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) grantees such as ministries of health and other partners work to control the HIV/AIDS epidemic. CDC awarded more than $5.5 billion in President's Emergency Plan for AIDS Relief (PEPFAR) funds to grantees during FYs 2018 through 2020 (about 96 percent of PEPFAR funds received by HHS during the three FYs) to accelerate HIV treatment and prevention worldwide by using public health, innovation, and data-driven approaches to achieve the global goal of HIV/AIDS epidemic control. To date, HHS-OIG has conducted 21 audits of grantees in 8 countries on 2 continents (Africa and Asia). OIG's PEPFAR oversight has helped grant recipients learn important grant and program integrity lessons that apply to ongoing and future responses to infectious diseases. In previous audits of foreign PEPFAR grantees, OIG identified unallowable expenditures, inadequate accounting systems, and internal control weaknesses. We will determine whether selected foreign or domestic grantees: (1) managed and expended PEPFAR funds in accordance with award requirements, and (2) have controls to mitigate potential risk to the PEPFAR program.
