About the Company
The Elizabeth Glaser Pediatric AIDS Foundation (EGPAF) is a proven leader in the global fight to end HIV and AIDS, and an advocate for every child to live a full and healthy life into adulthood.
Founded through a mother’s determination, we are driven to see a world where no other mother, child or family is devastated by this disease. For more than 30 years, EGPAF has been a leader in meeting urgent needs in pediatric HIV and AIDS in the world’s most affected regions.
While we’ve seen significant progress in the fight to end HIV and AIDS – reducing new infections in children by more than 95% in the U.S. and by over 50% globally – there are alarming rates among adolescents and young adults, with nearly 10,000 youth becoming newly infected each week.
Each stage of life – from infancy to adulthood – brings new and different challenges, and EGPAF recognizes that ending this epidemic cannot be achieved in isolation. It requires access to prevention, treatment, and support services for all members of the family.
In 2020 and beyond, EGPAF will leverage our core expertise in service delivery, capacity building, research and advocacy to comprehensively address an evolving HIV and AIDS epidemic, and through our presence on the ground and on the global stage, we’ll advocate for the health and well-being of children as they transition into adulthood.
