Since March 13, 2006, PEPFAR has lead an unprecedented public-private partnership topromote scientific and technical discussions on solutions for pediatric HIV treatment, formulations and access to care. This partnership brings together a wide range of expertise through the U.S. government , innovator and generic pharmaceutical companies, civil society organizations, such as Elizabeth Glaser Pediatric AIDS Foundation (EGPAF), and the United Nations system through UNAIDS, UNICEF and WHO. Participants meets on an annual or biannual basis, seeking to maximize the utility of currently available pediatric formulations and to accelerate children's access to treatment.
This partnership compliments PEPFAR’s goal to support programs that expand treatment for adults and children, such as support for health care capacity-building and expedited regulatory review of drugs through HHS/FDA. The partnership will offer children and parents hope for a better day - the hope of families staying together, leading healthy lives, and living positively with HIV/AIDS.
