Support Children Affected by AIDS

The partnership aims to expand access to health care for mothers and children affected by HIV/AIDS in developing countries.

Partnership with BIPAI to Support Children Affected by AIDS

Early in the program, the main challenge was proving that children living with HIV could be provided high quality care and treatment (and adhere to treatment) in resource-poor settings and show positive measurable results. The pilot project in the Romanian clinic that led to the development of the BIPAI model addressed this challenge, and since then the model has been replicated in six countries across Sub-Saharan Africa.

BIPAI brought together other corporate donors, multi-laterals such as UNICEF, and governmental agencies such as USAID/PEPFAR, CDC, and NIH to partner with the program country’s Ministry of Health. In addition to helping the Baylor College of Medicine International Pediatric AIDS Initiative (BIPAI) bring together donors and partners for the pediatric AIDS program, these initiatives gave birth to new global health programs, including but not limited to malnutrition, malaria, tuberculosis, cancer, sickle cell anemia and neglected tropical diseases.

The partnership objectives are:

  • Expand access to healthcare, testing, and treatment for children and families affected by HIV/AIDS in low and middle-income countries
  • Strengthen HIV/AIDS related health services
  • Prevent mother-to-child transmission of HIV/AIDS
