Elizabeth Glaser Pediatric AIDS Foundation

The partnership seeks to prevent pediatric HIV infection and to eradicate pediatric AIDS through research, advocacy, and prevention and treatment programs.

Elizabeth Glaser Pediatric AIDS Foundation

The Elizabeth Glaser Pediatric AIDS Foundation (EGPAF) is an internationally recognized leader in the fight against pediatric AIDS. Since its inception in 1998 as a U.S.– based non-profit 501(c)(3), EGPAF has been at the global forefront of the fight to prevent pediatric HIV infection and to eliminate pediatric AIDS through research, advocacy, and prevention, care, and treatment programs. EGPAF works in 15 countries around the world and collaborates with host governments, health facilities, non-governmental organizations and community-based organizations to halt the pandemic and help those already infected with HIV to lead healthier lives.

EGPAF provides a full range of critical HIV services by increasing access to prevention of mother-to-child transmission (PMTCT) services, and care and treatment for children and families, linking services, and training leaders in advancing quality care. EGPAF places great emphasis on capacity building and technical assistance. It assists international government partners to strengthen their country’s health systems and provide training to help ensure the effective sustainability of their prevention, care, and treatment programs.

EGPAF has reached 20 million women with lifesaving services to prevent transmission of HIV to their babies. As of December 2013, EGPAF has tested nearly 16.6 million women for HIV. More than 1.32 million pregnant women and 893,000 children have been provided with antiretroviral (ARV) prophylaxis through EGPAF services.

EGPAF's comprehensive approach includes prevention, diagnosis, and treatment of opportunistic infections such as pneumonia and tuberculosis. EGPAF is working to increase identification and care and treatment of young HIV-positive or HIV-exposed children and their mothers, through maternal, neonatal and child health (MNCH) clinics, general clinics, and inpatient wards. EGPAF is also implementing routine testing of children and/or mothers of unknown HIV status in well-child clinics and inpatient pediatric wards. Boehringer Ingelheim, Johnson & Johnson, and ViiV Healthcare are major supporters of EGPAF and its work.
