Affiliation

 Affiliation with the Elizabeth Glaser Pediatric AIDS Foundation

Ariel Glaser Pediatric AIDS Healthcare Initiative (AGPAHI) grew out of the Elizabeth Glaser Pediatric AIDS Foundation’s (EGPAF) country programs in Tanzania, which have been ongoing since 2003.The establishment of AGPAHI was based on EGPAF transition strategy developed in consultation with CDC. Following PEPFAR’s focus to transition the HIV programs to national organizations in 2010, EGPAF established an international affiliation structure and created one national affiliate known as AGPAHI.

EGPAF and AGPAHI have an affiliation agreement that aims to support the independence of AGPAHI in Tanzania, and provides a substantive mechanism to access technical support , cross institutional information sharing and to achieve programmatic excellence as well as high quality administrative and financial management system.

 

Benefits of Affiliation

AGPAHI and EGPAF are two independent organizations having a formal affiliation structure. The affiliation aims to establish mutually beneficial areas of technical collaboration, provide opportunities to participate in a network of organizations, and establish a mechanism to promote high standards of management and program implementation. 

The transition nature of our work and the affiliation agreement between the two organizations creates synergy to strengthen capacity and to accelerate efforts to eliminate pediatric AIDS while providing high-quality HIV care, support and treatment services to Tanzanian communities.
