AGPAHI was named in honor of Ariel Glaser, the daughter of U.S. pediatric AIDS advocate Elizabeth Glaser. Elizabeth contracted HIV through a blood transfusion while giving birth to Ariel, and unknowingly passed the virus on to Ariel through breast milk.
Ariel lost her battle with AIDS in 1988, and Elizabeth created the Pediatric AIDS Foundation to raise money for critical AIDS research for children. Elizabeth lost her own battle with AIDS in 1994, and to honor her legacy, the Pediatric AIDS Foundation was renamed the Elizabeth Glaser Pediatric AIDS Foundation (EGPAF) in 2004 on the 10th anniversary of her death.
Before she passed away, Ariel created a painting of how she envisioned the world—as a beautiful garden kept bright with sunshine and surrounded by love. Her inspiration serves as EGPAF’s logo, and now as AGPAHI’s logo, representing hope for children everywhere.KNOW MORE ABOUT US
STORIES OF HOPE
HEART TO HEART
STORY FROM PAUL AND MARIA
"All this was due to stigma associated with HIV and AIDS pandemic” Paul and Maria said. “HIV positive people were regarded as outcasts in the society.
They were isolated, called different names and even finger pointed.” Maria also confesses that Paul’s condition changed the perceptions and stereotypes she had towards people living with HIV and AIDS. She also wanted to protect the family name since she loved her husband. Paulo and Maria were the first people in Malampaka village to be known as discordant couple, a situation where one spouse is HIV- while the other is HIV+."
PROVIDING SAFE SPACE FOR CHILDREN LIVING WITH HIV
The Adolescent Club at Shinyanga Regional Hospital is one of 12 established in local health facilities in late 2015, funded by the Accelerating Children’s HIV Treatment (ACT) Initiative. Organised by the Ariel Glaser Pediatric AIDS Healthcare Initiative (AGPAHI), the ACT implementing partner in the region, the clubs are a lifeline for their 475 members, aged 10 to 19, the population group at the highest risk of sickness and death from HIV. Typical teen challenges with puberty and social anxiety are vastly compounded by HIV.
