One Million Babies Born HIV-free Signals Major Milestone in Global Effort to Eliminate Pediatric AIDS
Date:6/18/2013

Washington, DC (PRWEB) June 18, 2013

The Elizabeth Glaser Pediatric AIDS Foundation (EGPAF) joined the U.S. Department of State and the U.S. President’s Emergency Plan for AIDS Relief (PEPFAR) to mark PEPFAR’s 10 year anniversary and celebrate significant new milestones in the global effort to eliminate pediatric HIV/AIDs. U.S. Secretary of State John Kerry announced that as of June 2013, one million babies globally have been born HIV-free thanks to PEPFAR support. Since PEPFAR’s inception in 2003, EGPAF has been a key implementer of PEPFAR-supported programs and is directly responsible for approximately 20 percent (213,000) of the one million averted pediatric infections. Today’s announcement highlights EGPAF’s crucial role in global effort to achieve an AIDS-free generation.

Secretary Kerry was joined by U.S. Global AIDS Coordinator Ambassador Eric P. Goosby, U.S. Senator Mike Enzi (R-Wyo), U.S. Senator Benjamin Cardin (D-MD), and Dr. Richard Nehabi Kamwi, Namibian Minister of Health and Social Services to announce additional achievements, including 13 new countries that have reached the “tipping point” in the HIV epidemic—the point at which the annual increase in new patients on anti-retroviral therapy (ART) exceeds the annual number of new HIV infections.

EGPAF Ambassador Tatu Msangi, a mother living with HIV, was a featured guest speaker at the event. Msangi was diagnosed with HIV in 2004 while pregnant with her first child. Thanks to services provide by EGPAF and PEPFAR to prevent mother-to-child transmission (PMTCT) of HIV, Msangi’s daughter was born and remains HIV-free.

“I am honored to stand before you as a living example PEPFAR’s impact on the global effort to eliminate HIV/AIDS,” said Msangi. “Thanks to PEPFAR and its implementing partners, such as the Elizabeth Glaser Pediatric AIDS Foundation, I was able to access the treatment I needed so I could stay healthy and my daughter, Faith, co
