About the Organization

Elizabeth Glaser Pediatric AIDS Foundation (EGPAF) is a worldwide leader in the fight against pediatric AIDS, working to halt the pandemic and help those already infected with HIV. Before the Foundation’s inception, children affected by HIV and AIDS had no voice – and few medicines and interventions that were available had been developed specifically for children. Thanks to the courageous efforts of Elizabeth Glaser and those who follow in her footsteps, the Foundation improves the lives of millions of children and families affected by AIDS each year by funding groundbreaking scientific research, providing lifesaving services, and advocating for children around the globe. The Foundation is currently working in nearly 5,500 sites in 19 countries worldwide.

In Malawi, more than 1.1 million people are living with HIV/AIDS. HIV/AIDS prevalence is at 8.9% among adults (ages 15 – 49) with about 33,000 new infections every year. Of the people living with HIV/AIDS in Malawi, approximately 540,000 are women and 84,000 are children under 15 years of age. It is against this backdrop that in 2001 the Foundation, working with local partners, initiated one of the first programs to provide prevention of mother-to-child transmission of HIV (PMTCT) services in Malawi. Today, the Foundation’s program focuses on providing technical and capacity building assistance to the Ministry of Health (MOH); working to eliminate HIV infection in infants and children; increasing access to comprehensive, high-quality, and well-integrated PMTCT care and treatment services for HIV-positive pregnant women, infants, and families; and supporting the strengthening of health systems. EGPAF is currently working in seven districts in the Central and Northern Zones.

In April 2017, EGPAF began implementation of the five-year project, Achieving HIV Epidemic Control through Scaling Up Quality Testing, Care and Treatment Program (also known as PIVOT2). In collaboration with Malawi’s MOH and CDC, the program aims to achieve HIV epidemic control in 179 sites across nine districts in the central and southern regions of Malawi, through the administration and integration of comprehensive, evidence-based, and high-quality HIV testing, prevention, care, and treatment services. As it continues to implement the program, EGPAF will intensify site-level service delivery, targeted community interventions, and data-driven approaches to identify, initiate, and retain 90% of people living with HIV (PLHIV) on antiretroviral therapy (ART), as well as improve the overall quality of HIV services, and ensure optimal patient outcomes.
