Recipients' Use of President's Emergency Plan for AIDS Relief Funds
As a key implementing partner CDC works side by side with ministries of health, civil and faith-based organizations, private sector organizations, and other on-the-ground partners to improve methods for finding, treating, and preventing HIV. CDC received more than $5.4 billion for FY 2019 through 2021 (about 97 percent of the 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 recipients 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 recipients, OIG identified unallowable expenditures, inadequate accounting systems, and internal control weaknesses. We will determine whether selected foreign or domestic recipients: (1) managed and expended PEPFAR funds in accordance with award requirements, and (2) have controls to mitigate potential risk to the PEPFAR program.
