The UP 4 THE FIGHT program is the community fundraising and awareness arm of the Elizabeth Glaser Pediatric AIDS Foundation (EGPAF). EGPAF is the global leader in the fight to end AIDS in children. Since our founding, there has been a 95% decline in new pediatric HIV infections in the United States. Globally, new pediatric infections have been reduced by more than 50% since the year 2000. But every day, more than 400 babies are infected with HIV because their families lack access to the health services they need to prevent transmission. Together, we will make that number zero.
EGPAF programs have reached nearly 30 million pregnant women with the services needed to prevent the transmission of HIV to their babies -- across more than 5,000 health care sites and with programs in 19 countries. We have proven that we can work in diverse global settings — no matter a country’s size or resources — to support delivery of HIV services, as well as research, advocacy, and improved health systems for mothers and children.
