Elizabeth Glaser Pediatric AIDS Foundation Partnership

Our partnership with the Elisabeth Glaser Paediatric AIDS Foundation works towards increasing access to antiretroviral drugs and improving care for infants and young children.

The need

Solutions to the challenges presented above, require a concerted effort between all of the stakeholders. Programme success cannot be achieved by a sole organisation and hence we need effective partnerships across major governmental, non-governmental and private organisations. Industry is a key player in this process and contributes both knowledge and resources.

You need to include all of the stakeholders in HIV as you work in the country. Industry brings in the resources and the expertise that allow us to run programmes which are often overlooked or underfunded.
