The Elizabeth Glaser Pediatric AIDS Foundation seeks to prevent pediatric HIV infection and to eliminate pediatric AIDS through research, advocacy, and prevention and treatment programs.
Since 2000, EGPAF has supported expanded access to comprehensive HIV prevention, and later to HIV care and treatment services, in regions of the world deeply affected by HIV and AIDS. Our dedicated staff work in close partnership with local governments and like-minded organizations to halt the spread of the virus, especially among children, and to ensure those living with HIV receive the care and support they need to live long and healthy lives.
EGPAF's program implementation efforts seek to extend HIV prevention, care, and treatment services to at least 80 percent of children, women, and families affected by HIV in the countries where we work. Strengthening of health systems, and integration of HIV care within maternal and child health services in particular, is critical to achieving this goal. Key programmatic areas that EGPAF supports include:
Preventing mother-to-child transmission of HIV.
Caring for children, women, and families living with and affected by HIV.
In addition to these core programmatic areas, EGPAF works to address a number of cross-cutting issues within national health systems to strengthen overall service delivery and ensure optimal health outcomes. These include:
Quality assurance and quality improvement
Adherence and retention in HIV prevention, care, and treatment services
Integration of HIV services into primary care services
Human resource strengthening
Program management and financing
As of June 30, 2012, we have provided nearly 15.3 million women with services to prevent transmission of HIV to their babies. We have enrolled more than 1.8 million individuals, including nearly 140,000 children, into HIV care and support programs, and have started more than 961,000 individuals, including more than 76,000 children under the age of 15, on antiretroviral treatment.
