VII. Conclusion

Among the many tragedies caused by the global HIV/AIDS pandemic, the infection of children is among the most difficult to address. It poses unique challenges that the world is only beginning to solve.

Focusing on our future, the President�s Emergency Plan is committed to protecting children from HIV/AIDS and caring for those who become infected. The United States has thus lent support to encouraging early successes in the prevention, diagnosis, and treatment of pediatric HIV/AIDS.

The early accomplishments realized by host nations in addressing pediatric HIV/AIDS have been remarkable. Contributions have been made both by governments and by countless nongovernmental organizations, including faith-based and community-based groups. Through the Emergency Plan, the people of the United States are partners in these efforts, and will continue to be partners in the common fight to help children live free from the shadow of HIV/AIDS.
