United States Gives $12 Million to Pediatric AIDS Foundation Initiative
Date:1/24/2008

Ministry of Health and Child Welfare health facilities, in over 24 districts of Zimbabwe. Through their programs, more than 280,000 pregnant women have gained access to services. About 34,000 women living with HIV have been identified within the program, and the majority of these women and their infants have received anti-retroviral treatments.

Only one in every three HIV positive pregnant women in Zimbabwe is currently receiving the services that can protect their babies from the virus. As a result, more than 17,300 children each year become infected in Zimbabwe. USAID's Mission Director to Zimbabwe, Karen Freemen said, "The Elizabeth Glaser program's achievements are a culmination of a multitude of efforts by the U.S. government, its partners, donors, and the thousands of health care workers whose dedication to patient care and service sustains these programs."

The Elizabeth Glaser Pediatric AIDS Foundation is a worldwide leader in the fight against pediatric AIDS. To learn more about the Foundation's work in Zimbabwe, visit http://www.pedaids.org/OurWork/InternationalPrograms/Zimbabwe.aspx.
