Since 2010, ViiV
has provided important support to expedite access to HIV testing, care and treatment for infants and young children in Lesotho, Malawi and Swaziland. Through this partnership, EGPAF has been able to pilot innovative approaches to reaching the most vulnerable with life-saving services. The partnership also supports advocacy efforts to address policy barriers and support the prioritization of pediatric HIV care and treatment policies in other EGPAF-supported countries. EGPAF also is partnering with ViiV’s Positive Action for Children Fund to provide technical assistance to community-based organizations (CBOs) in Kenya and Malawi, as well as to support community-level PMTCT programs in Kenya.
At AIDS 2012 in Washington, D.C., ViiV Healthcare was the principal sponsor of the Global Village
to promote networking between people from across the globe who are highly motivated to get involved in addressing issues of importance to people living with or affected by HIV and AIDS. Also, ViiV Healthcare’s Paediatric Innovation Seed Fund
supports partnerships with organizations such as EGPAF that focus on the evidence base for pediatric care and treatment; the research and development of pediatric fixed-dose combination (FDC) products; and formulations for the treatment of infants and children living with HIV.
