This reception, co-hosted by BCIU and Ambassador Deborah Birx - U.S. Global AIDS Coordinator, will bring together key partners on the margins of the United Nations General Assembly to recognize PEPFAR’s 15th anniversary and honor many leaders that have partnered with PEPFAR on the global HIV/AIDS response.  We will convene heads of state, health ministers, the U.S. government, congressional repre­sentatives, non-governmental organizations, foundations, multi-lateral partners, and the private sector — to further strengthen  partnerships and continue the collective great progress towards epidemic control of HIV/AIDS.
