Dr Alan Ingram has been awarded a British Academy Small Research Grant to study US policies on global HIV/AIDS relief. The project will run from February to July 2008 and will involve fieldwork in Washington DC.
The research focuses on the US President's Emergency Plan for AIDS Relief (PEPFAR), which at $15bn for 2003-2008 is by far the largest single funding stream in this area as well as a flagship US foreign aid programme. 2008 will mark the transition to the second phase of PEPFAR which President Bush has suggested should extend for a further five years and be funded with $30bn.
Dr Ingram said "The US presidential election and transition to the second phase of PEPFAR make 2008 an important year for global HIV/ AIDS relief. This research aims to produce insights into the key issues and debates around policies that shape the life chances of millions of people in recipient countries."
