For more than 30 years, the Elizabeth Glaser Pediatric AIDS Foundation (“EGPAF”) has been the leader in the fight to end HIV/AIDS in children. Building on their success in reducing new infections in children by more than 95% in the United States and more than 50% globally, EGPAF seeks sustained, high-quality, locally led HIV/ AIDS epidemic control for children, youth, and families that achieves our ultimate hope for a health, AIDS-free generation. The organization takes an innovative approach to advance research, advocacy, service delivery, and capacity-building efforts to fight the HIV/AIDS epidemic.

The core principles of EGPAF’s global programmatic efforts include integrating HIV/AIDS services with other fundamental health services—especially maternal, child, and reproductive health—and fostering sustainable, high-quality health systems in the countries where they work. EGPAF recognizes that ending HIV/AIDS cannot be achieved in isolation and requires access to, and utilization of, needed prevention, treatment, and support services by all family members—adults as well as children and youth. EGPAF is committed to the health of the communities we serve, and confronts HIV/AIDS, co-infections, and existing and emerging health threats that stand between us and our mission. EGPAF engages in the most affected regions in the world and has a global footprint reaching thousands of health facilities in multiple countries, with a particular focus in Africa.
