Expensive Worldwide Abstinence Program Did Not Prevent HIV

Expensive Worldwide Abstinence Program Did Not Prevent HIV
 - The President’s Emergency Fund for AIDS Relief (PEPFAR), a worldwide initiative to rid the world of HIV and AIDS, was implemented by then US president George W. Bush in 2003. A third of its funds were required to focus on abstinence-based programs that promote abstaining from sex until marriage, limiting sexual partners and remaining monogamous. This portion of PEPFAR, which some critics said was added to appease religious conservatives, is referred to as ABC, or "Abstinence, Be faithful, Condoms."
