uld be born HIV-negative. My daughter is all the proof you need that an HIV-free generation is possible.”

Pediatric AIDS has virtually been eliminated in the United States and Europe but still, more than 900 babies are born HIV-positive every day, mostly in sub-Saharan Africa. Currently, 57 percent of HIV-positive eligible adults receive HIV treatment, but only 28 percent of eligible children living with HIV have access to the medicines they need.

“We are proud to be a part of today’s event and celebrate the accomplishments of the last 10 years,” said Charles Lyons, EGPAF president and CEO. “As we learned today, many significant milestones have been achieved, but we still have a lot of work to do to eliminate pediatric HIV/AIDS. I am confident that as long as we are able to continue to build upon this exciting progress, an AIDS-free generation is within reach.”

EGPAF is currently one of the largest providers of PMTCT services in sub-Saharan Africa, and a leader in the global movement to end pediatric HIV/AIDS. To date, EGPAF has provided PMTCT and other health services to nearly 16 million women and their babies and operates more than 5,500 sites in 15 countries worldwide. Through PEPFAR and other partners, EGPAF strives to increase access to the treatments and programs necessary to eliminate pediatric HIV/AIDS worldwide.
