The EGPAF@AIDS2012 blog features the activities of the Elizabeth Glaser Pediatric AIDS Foundation (EGPAF) at the XIX International AIDS Conference, held from July 22-27 in Washinton, D.C.
Founded in 1988, EGPAF began as the fight of one mother – Elizabeth Glaser – to save her children from AIDS. Today it supports the fight of all mothers around the world to help their children grow up free from HIV and AIDS.
EGPAF is headquartered in the U.S. with offices in Washington, D.C. and Los Angeles, but has a global staff of nearly 900, with more than 85% working in the field in 13 African countries and in India to prevent and treat HIV in children and adults. EGPAF and its Foundation Affiliates work in collaboration with national goverments, international and local organizations, and communities to fight HIV/AIDS, improve maternal and child health, and strengthen health systems.
EGPAF is a global leader in efforts to eliminate pediatric AIDS through scientific research, public policy and advocacy initiatives, and innovative programmatic implementation.
It also serves on the Global Steering Group to implement the Global Plan towards the Elimination of New HIV Infections among Children by 2015 and Keeping Their Mothers Alive.
