The Elizabeth Glaser Pediatric AIDS Foundation seeks to end pediatric HIV/AIDS through research, advocacy, and prevention and treatment programs.
Since 2000, EGPAF has supported expanded access to comprehensive HIV prevention, care and treatment services in regions of the world deeply affected by HIV and AIDS. Our dedicated staff work in close partnership with local governments, ministries of health, and local organizations to halt the spread of the virus, especially among children, and to ensure those living with HIV receive the care and support they need to live long and healthy lives.
EGPAF’s program implementation efforts seek to expand HIV prevention, care, and treatment access to children, women, and families affected by HIV in the countries where we work. Strengthening health systems, and integrating HIV services with primary health care services, particularly maternal and child health services, is critical to achieving this goal.
EGPAF continues to lead the field in the conduct of clinical and implementation research to evaluate innovative strategies and novel technologies to contribute to this ever-growing body of knowledge. EGPAF's research efforts specifically focus on determining the effectiveness of PMTCT and HIV care and treatment programs under real-world conditions, and assessing ways to increase the effectiveness of HIV-related health services and improve the health and wellbeing of women, children, and families. This includes developing effective and replicable comprehensive service delivery models that are well integrated within the health system with strong linkages to the communities that they serve.
EGPAF also advocates for national, regional, and global policies that promote greater access to HIV prevention and treatment among children and their families.
EGPAF is supporting activities in 19 countries.
