As we think back to the work Elizabeth Glaser started 25 years ago, there is much to applaud. We have seen a 95 percent reduction in new AIDS cases in the U.S., and a 50 percent reduction in new infections in children around the world. The Elizabeth Glaser Pediatric AIDS Foundation (EGPAF) has been a major contributor to this achievement, and just recently celebrated having reached more than 20 million pregnant women with HIV services to prevent transmission to their babies. This accomplishment marks a significant milestone for EGPAF and the worldwide effort to end AIDS in children.
