Statement from the Elizabeth Glaser Pediatric AIDS Foundation about the U.S. Government's Investment in the Global Fund
October 5, 2010
The Elizabeth Glaser Pediatric AIDS Foundation would like to recognize today’s announcement
by the U.S. Government for its increased investment in the Global Fund to Fight AIDS, Tuberculosis and Malaria
. This is an important commitment, and we welcome the continued leadership of the U.S. Government in financing the response to the global AIDS epidemic.
The U.S. Government recently joined Global Fund and other global health partners in calling for virtual elimination of pediatric AIDS. This Global Fund pledge and continued U.S. investment in the President’s Emergency Plan for AIDS Relief (PEPFAR) are critical to collective efforts to reach this goal.
The Elizabeth Glaser Pediatric AIDS Foundation is a global leader in the fight against pediatric HIV and AIDS, working in 17 countries to implement prevention, care, and treatment; to further advance innovative research; and to execute strategic and targeted global advocacy activities to bring dramatic change to the lives of millions of women, children, and families worldwide.
