About the Organization

Created in 1988 from one mother’s fight to save her children, EGPAF inspired a movement that has resulted in the virtual elimination of pediatric AIDS in the U.S. and Europe. Still, in other parts of the world, pediatric AIDS rages on. Each day, 900 children worldwide become infected with HIV; 90 percent will contract the virus through mother-to-child transmission. Without diagnosis and treatment, most of these children will suffer a painful, premature death.

We can change this. We must change this.

We have the medicines and the knowledge to reduce the risk that an HIV-positive mother will transmit the virus to her baby to virtually zero; to protect virtually every child from being born with HIV; and to ensure that mothers can be healthy enough to raise their children into adulthood. In fact, as of 2011, one in five HIV-positive mothers worldwide was receiving lifesaving medications through EGPAF-supported clinics.
