Congressional Republicans are threatening to defund PEPFAR, which has saved more lives in developing nations than any other US policy in the 21st century. For what condition does this policy provide relief?

Questions have been raised about the cognitive health of 81-year-old Senate Republican Leader Mitch McConnell after this recent incident.
