Avert up to 1.9 million new infections or cases across the three diseases, and;
Provide antiretroviral therapy for more than 100,000 people, and;
Provide treatment for 31,000 women to prevent passing HIV to their babies, and;
Provide tuberculosis (TB) treatment and care for 153,000 people, and;
Provide 4,300 people with treatment for multidrug-resistant TB, and;
Distribute 6.2 million mosquito nets to protect children and families from malaria, and;
Provide indoor residual spraying for 1.2 million households to protect children and families from malaria, and;
Spur domestic investment of US$300 million toward the three diseases, and;
Create US $2.2 billion in long-term economic gains.

PEPFAR (President's Emergency Plan for AIDS Relief) funding focuses on prevention, care and treatment, and the support of children affected and infected by HIV and AIDS. In 2016, PEPFAR programs achieved the following historic results:
11.5 million men, women, and children on life-saving antiretroviral treatment
Prevented nearly 2 million babies from being born with HIV, who would otherwise have been infected
1.1 million children are on life-saving antiretroviral treatment
More than 1 million adolescent girls and young women were reached with critical comprehensive HIV prevention intervention
6.2 million orphans and vulnerable children received care and support
220,000 new health care workers trained to deliver HIV and other health services
74.3 million people received HIV testing and counseling
Malarial programs treat, prevent, and control this deadly disease with the vision of ending preventable child and maternal deaths. The programs also build government capacity to treat and prevent malaria.
Tuberculosis programs screen, diagnose, and treat millions of people each year affected by the leading infectious disease killer globally in order to cure and prevent the spread of TB.
