Founded in 1988, the Elizabeth Glaser Pediatric AIDS Foundation is a worldwide leader in the fight to end pediatric AIDS. The organization works in 15 countries to implement lifesaving HIV programs, to advance pediatric AIDS research, and to advocate on behalf of those affected by HIV/AIDS. Today, because the work of the Foundation and its partners, more mothers around the world have access to the tools they need to have healthy, HIV-free children.
Elizabeth Glaser contracted HIV through a blood transfusion in 1981 while giving birth to her daughter, Ariel. She and her husband, Paul, later learned that Elizabeth had unknowingly passed the virus on to Ariel through breast milk and that their son, Jake, had contracted the virus in utero. After Ariel lost her battle with AIDS in 1988, Elizabeth rose to action, creating a foundation to support children, mothers, and families affected by HIV/AIDS.
The Foundation’s identity video “The Time to Eliminate Pediatric AIDS Is Now” revisits the personal story of Elizabeth Glaser, how the Foundation began, and the work the Foundation is doing to eliminate new HIV infections in children globally.
The Foundation’s “Countdown to an AIDS-Free Generation” shares the last three decades in the global fight against HIV/AIDS, and how the Foundation and others are fighting to create the first AIDS-free generation.
