Date:7/29/2013

tive people in Africa, including providing lifelong access to antiretroviral therapy (ART) to all HIV-positive pregnant and breastfeeding woman and providing ART for all HIV-positive children younger than five years of age.

“The AU’s declaration signals that African countries are ready to take more ownership of their public health initiatives,” said Rhoda Igweta, senior public policy and advocacy officer at EGPAF. “Combined with the new WHO guidelines, there is tremendous opportunity for African countries to become global leaders in the effort to achieve an AIDS-free generation. With the right resources in place, the AU should meet its goal to eliminate HIV/AIDS by 2030.”

EGPAF is currently one of the largest providers of prevention of mother-to-child transmission of HIV (PMTCT) services in sub-Saharan Africa, and a leader in the global movement to end pediatric HIV/AIDS. To date, EGPAF has provided PMTCT and other health services to nearly 16 million women and their babies and operates more than 5,500 sites in 15 countries worldwide. Still, more than 900 babies are born HIV-positive every day, mostly in sub-Saharan Africa. Currently, 57 percent of HIV-positive eligible adults receive HIV treatment, but only 33 percent of eligible children living with HIV have access to the medicines they need.
