The MHF Board at its October 1, 2013 meeting, voted to sign a letter of support for the President’s Emergency Plan for AIDS Relief (PEPFAR) Stewardship and Oversight Act of 2013 which is working its way through Congress.  PEPFAR has been a program which faith communities have supported in the past and has made a significant positive impact on the AIDS pandemic.
