PACHA Law and Legal Definition

PACHA means the Presidential Advisory Council on HIV/AIDS. The PACHA was a commission formed in 1995 by the former U.S President Bill Clinton. It was established to provide policy recommendations on the U.S. government’s response to the AIDS epidemic. The commission advices, recommends, and informs the secretary of various programs and policies with an intention to promote effective prevention of HIV disease, and to advance research on HIV/AIDS. The PACHA is advisory in nature.

The PACHA provides written reports to the secretary, and the secretary in turn transfers copies of these reports to the president.
