The Lesotho Times: Plan to expand child HIV prevention programmes

The Lesotho Times | October 8, 2010

While the Foundation recently commemorated the close of the USAID-funded Call to Action project, it unveiled a mission and objectives for the next era of support for HIV/AIDS services in Lesotho. The Foundation has received funding through USAID for a new five-year project, “Strengthening Clinical Services in Lesotho." The Lesotho Times covered the Foundation's continued work in Lesotho in the article below.

The United States Agency for International Development (USAID) and the Elizabeth Glaser Pediatric AIDS Foundation (EGPAF) say they plan to expand programmes dealing with the prevention of mother-to-child transmission of HIV in Lesotho.

USAID and the Foundation, working closely with the Ministry of Health, also plan to scale up HIV care and treatment in all health facilities in Lesotho.
