Family AIDS Initiative

Commitment by

Elizabeth Glaser Pediatric AIDS Foundation

In 2006, the Elizabeth Glaser Pediatric AIDS Foundation committed to providing integrated health services for HIV-infected mothers at risk for transmitting HIV to their infants. By coordinating prevention and treatment strategies, the initiative will fill gaps in family health care systems, including the provision of antiretroviral therapy when needed. The program will target areas in which HIV prevalence exceeds 10% , thus reaching an estimated 200,000 HIV-positive pregnant women.
