Thank you for your support of EPGAF in Lesotho

Dear Supporters,

We are so grateful for your continued commitment to our shared mission of eliminating pediatric AIDS. As you know, the Elizabeth Glaser Pediatric AIDS Foundation (EGPAF) is a global leader in the fight against pediatric HIV/AIDS, and our successes so far would not have been possible without the help of supporters like you. Working at more than 5,500 sites in 15 countries, EGPAF has provided nearly 16 million women with services to prevent transmission of HIV to their babies.

Through the important work of the local pony riders, great strides have been made in Lesotho over the past several years.  We are proud to partner with the Lesotho Ministry of Health and Social Welfare and other partners to work toward a shared goal of decreasing the rate of new HIV infections.  Thanks in part to your recent support, the Foundation works to strengthen, expand and integrate prevention of mother-to-child transmission of HIV (PMTCT) and HIV care and treatment services across Lesotho.

As of September 30, 2012, EGPAF-supported programs in Lesotho had:

  • Provided nearly 112,000 women with PMTCT services.
  • Tested nearly 95,000 pregnant women for HIV.
  • Enrolled nearly 195,000 people into HIV care and support programs, including more than 10,000 children under the age of 15.
  • Started more than 91,000 people on antiretroviral therapy (ART) for HIV, including more than 4,700 children under the age of 15.

Thank you again for your continued support.  At this time we have decided to shift our GlobalGiving focus from the Lesotho pony project to another EGPAF initiative in the near future. We hope you will join one of forthcoming projects on the GlobalGiving site, which we plan to launch by early fall.

We hope you will join one of forthcoming projects on the GlobalGiving site. In the meantime, please consider joining the fight to eliminate pediatric HIV/AIDS by signing up at www.pedaids.org, or connecting with EGPAF on social media at  www.facebook.com/EGPAF or www.twitter.com/EGPAF. Again, thank you for your interest and support as we work together to achieve an AIDS-free generation.

Sincerely,

Mikaela Gibson, Development Coordinator
