Welcome Agpahi

Welcome to AGPAHI

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.

Experience & Impact

AGPAHI experience with HIV programs:

AGPAHI is comprised of highly qualified health, finance and program management specialist leading on paediatric, public health, research, adolescent, and adult clinical HIV/AIDS care and treatment;
TB services in health facilities and mining setting, proven management of large, complex PEPFAR projects; experience providing support to victims of Gender Based Violence (GBV); strength in data analysis and use for continuous quality improvement; and transformative capacity building and skills transfer to Council Health Management Teams and Regional Health Management Teams for impressive gains in HIV epidemic control.

Since AGPAHIs inception up to April 2019, AGPAHI has supported provision of PMTCT services to over 1.5 million women where 55,165 pregnant women have received live saving ARVs and more than 45,000 babies born HIV free.

Through the course of implementation AGPAHI with the support from PEPFAR through CDC under our BORESHA Project we have managed to reach the third 95% by ensuring that 95% of the supported clients currently on ART are virally suppressed.
This has been achieved through scaling up of optimal ARVs particularly TLD transition and Pediatric ART optimization. Establishment and support of 15 viremia clinics beyond Tier 1 facilities in the supported regions where more than 15 Viremia clinics offer intensive services and support to virally unsuppressed patients have also shown to increase viral suppression for the target group.
As for the children, peer to peer attachment and family centred approach clinic has also added value in achieving 95% VL suppression.
