How Expanded Mexico City Policy Is Disrupting Global HIV Programs

The recently expanded Mexico City Policy prohibits foreign NGOs from receiving U.S. global health funding if they perform abortions, counsel on or refer for abortion, or advocate for its liberalization - outside of limited exceptions. For the first time, the Policy applies to HIV/AIDS funding through the President's Emergency Plan for AIDS Relief (PEPFAR), implicating hundreds of additional organizations.

amfAR completed a confidential online survey targeting all PEPFAR prime partners in the 2016-2017 PEPFAR country operational plans to understand the initial impacts of this policy expansion. Responses were received from 286 partners operating in 45 countries.
