About the Foundation The Elizabeth Glaser Pediatric AIDS Foundation is a worldwide leader in the fight to prevent pediatric HIV infection and eradicate pediatric AIDS through research, advocacy, and prevention and treatment programs. We currently support programs for children and families in 18 countries around the world. The Foundation’s longstanding commitment to pediatric HIV/AIDS research is at the heart of what we do. Elizabeth Glaser created the Foundation at a time when there was no research dedicated specifically to meet the unique needs of children with HIV. We now support innovative projects, bringing the best minds together in collaboration and bridging gaps within the medical and research communities to ensure that children will have access to the best medical treatments. Only by working together can we continue to bring real solutions to children and families around the world and make real our vision that every child deserves a lifetime.
