About the webinar

The U.S. global AIDS coordinator, Deborah Birx, directed U.S. agencies managing PEPFAR to reach a benchmark of directing 40% of their PEPFAR funding to “indigenous” organizations by the end of FY2019 and 70% by the end of FY2020. However, threats to slash funding have left the future of the global health initiative uncertain.

With the release of the PEPFAR Country Operational Plans (COP) for 2019, Devex takes a look at past COP data to surface key contracting trends and explore with experts in the field what impact changes under the current administration and a renewed push to localize might have on current and future implementers.

You can take a look at Devex's analysis of PEPFAR's country operational plans here. We will also save time at the end for audience questions. You may submit questions ahead of the event to webinars@devex.com.
