On January 28, 2003, during his State of the Union Address, President George Bush proposed that the United States spend 15 billion over five years to combat HIVAIDS, tuberculosis TB, and malaria through the Presidents Emergency Plan for AIDS Relief PEPFAR. The President proposed that most of the spending on PEPFAR programs be concentrated in 15 countries in Africa, Asia, Latin America, and the Caribbean. Of the 15 billion, the Plan proposed spending 9 billion on prevention, treatment, and care services in the 15 Focus Countries, where the Administration estimated 50 of all HIV-positive people lived. The President also proposed that 5 billion of the funds be spent on existing bilateral HIVAIDS, TB, and malaria programs and research, and 1 billion of PEFPAR funds be reserved for U.S. contributions to the Global Fund to Fight AIDS, Tuberculosis, and Malaria Global Fund. Between FY2004 and FY2008, PEPFAR aims to have supported care for 10 million people affected by HIVAIDS, including children orphaned by AIDS prevented 7 million new HIV infections and supported efforts to provide antiretroviral medication ARV to 2 million HIV-infected people.
