The Elizabeth Glaser Pediatric AIDS Foundation is a global leader in the fight against pediatric HIV and AIDS, working in 15 countries and at over 7,000 sites around the world to prevent the transmission of HIV to children, and to help those already infected. Today, because of the highly successful work of the Foundation and its partners, pediatric AIDS has been virtually eliminated in the United States. With a growing global staff of over 1,000 - nine of 10 who work in the field - the Foundation’s global mission is to eliminate pediatric HIV and AIDS by implementing HIV prevention, care, and treatment programs; further advance innovative research; and to execute strategic and targeted global advocacy activities to bring dramatic change to the lives of millions of women, children, and families worldwide.
Through a grant from UNITAID, EGPAF will introduce and scale-up innovative point-of-care (POC) early infant diagnosis (EID) in nine African countries. This four-year project will procure and distribute more than 475 POC EID platforms and 600,000 POC EID tests worth an estimated total cost of US$ 24 million. The Project will enable the testing of up to 215,000 HIV-exposed infants, resulting in increased pediatric HIV diagnosis, earlier initiation of infants on ART, increased pediatric ARV coverage, and improved survival of HIV-positive infants.
