PEPFAR Partnership for Pediatric AIDS Treatment

PEPFAR’s program strategy emphasizes improving health outcomes, increasing program sustainability and integration, and strengthening health systems.

PEPFAR Partnership for Pediatric AIDS Treatment

The US President's Emergency Plan for AIDS Relief (PEPFAR) Partnership for Pediatric AIDS Treatment was launched in 2006. This public-private partnership includes research-based and generic pharmaceutical companies and multilateral organizations such as UNAIDS, WHO and UNICEF. The initiative will identify scientific obstacles to treatment for children, take practical steps to address key barriers, share best practices and develop systems for clinical and technical support.

Partnership objectives:

  • Transition from an emergency response to promotion of sustainable country programs.
  • Strengthen partner government capacity to lead the response to this epidemic and other health demands.
  • Expand prevention, care, and treatment in both concentrated and generalized epidemics.
  • Integrate and coordinate HIV/AIDS programs with broader global health and development programs to maximize impact on health systems.
  • Invest in innovation and operations research to evaluate impact, improve service delivery and maximize outcomes.
