The Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation
EGPAF has a longstanding relationship with The Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation
. In 2000, EGPAF was able to vastly expand its international prevention of mother-to-child transmission (PMTCT) of HIV efforts through a multi-million dollar grant from the Gates Foundation. Since then, the Gates Foundation has provided EGPAF with additional grants for PMTCT implementation and operations research, as well as pediatric HIV vaccine research.
