This paper provides a brief overview of the President’s Emergency Plan for AIDS Relief’s (PEPFAR) record on gender and offers five recommendations to help the Office of the Global AIDS Coordinator (OGAC) make gender central to its policies and programs. Together, these recommendations focus on the content of PEPFAR’s programs, outlining ways to make them more gender-responsive, and on processes that OGAC can institute to increase transparency and ensure that its programs remain gender responsive and relevant to the populations it seeks to serve.
