Executive Summary:

Not one infant should ever be born with HIV, yet every day, over 400 children are newly infected. This is 100% preventable. Without treatment, 50% of these children will die by age five, and all will require lifelong care. The majority of HIV infections are in sub-Saharan Africa where socio-economic factors create disproportionate risk of contracting HIV, especially for young pregnant women. In addition to devastating health impacts, the collateral consequences of a generation lost to HIV infection are profound, including social marginalization from stigma, reduced school enrollment and employment, increased poverty, and even negative effects on GDP growth. We can ensure that not one more baby is infected with HIV and set the world on the path to ending pediatric HIV. The Elizabeth Glaser Pediatric AIDS Foundation (EGPAF) will achieve this goal through a proven solution set focused on timely diagnosis and retention on treatment for women in Africa.
