Name that AIDS Programme

The Center for Global Development invites readers to rename PEPFAR, the 15-soon-to-be-at-least-45 billion dollar aid programme for HIV care (and a bit of prevention) in developing countries. The finalists are now open for voting on; they include such inspirational suggestions as American Sustainable HIV/AIDS Relief Plan (A-SHARP) and Program to Encourage Partnerships Focused on AIDS Relief (PEPFAR).

I want to keep the PEPFAR acronym, too. But I think we can find something that is closer to the true spirit of the programme. How about:

Pooh-poohing Evidence: Politics First, Abstinence Rules!
or
President’s Efforts to Pander to Fundamentalists and the American Right

I know some of you can do better. Graham?
