EGPAF’s continued success is made possible by the support of generous private donors and volunteers. Joining us in our mission to eliminate pediatric AIDS, these supporters are changing the lives of children and families affected by HIV and AIDS, and are introducing more individuals to EGPAF and our work around the world.
Whether they volunteer their time and skills, or support us through charitable donations, EGPAF is grateful for the commitment of these incredible individuals. In recognition of our supporters and their impact, EGPAF highlights those who continue to motivate and inspire us to create a generation free of HIV.

This summer, pharmaceutical company Boehringer Ingelheim (BI) decided to show its support of EGPAF in a very meaningful way. In 2000, BI introduced its Viramune® Donation Programme to help meet the needs of HIV-positive pregnant women in developing countries who wish to decrease the risk of transmitting HIV to their babies. EGPAF is the largest beneficiary of this program, and also has received more that $1.5 million from BI to support its work to eliminate pediatric AIDS around the world.
