And Big Pharma also (eventually) recognized the value in opening up markets in Africa, not only for ARVs, but for all the other stuff they and the medical supply industry sell, and helping to create a culture of modern health seeking behavior for the future, etc.

Personally speaking, I cannot help thinking that the origin of PEPFAR was 
that Bush wanted to clean himself from the dit of Iraq war, found strong 
campaign by civil society and people living with HIV so he rode on!

(Apparent sycophancy to Washington's power allows this discrediting of 
AIDS activists by two who should know - and do - better. It was 
published originally in the /Washington Post /last week: "Just 15 years 
ago, Western experts said confidently that there was little that rich 
countries could do to stop the global AIDS crisis, which was killing 
millions of people in Africa and elsewhere. Today, thanks to leadership 
and advocacy from President George W. Bush, a bipartisan coalition of 
members in Congress, courageous faith-based organizations and U.S. 
government researchers such as Tony Fauci and Mark Dybul, more than 10 
million Africans are getting lifesaving treatment.")
