World Closer Than Ever to Ending Pediatric AIDS

February 22, 2013

Writing in the Huffington Post's "Global Motherhood" blog, Chip Lyons, president and CEO of the Elizabeth Glaser Pediatric AIDS Foundation, highlights the foundation's "first annual 'Global Champions for a Mother's Fight' gala, an opportunity to honor some of our heroes in the battle against pediatric HIV/AIDS and discuss global change, innovation, and advocacy." He writes, "The battle against HIV/AIDS has been fought for over three decades, by people from every community and all walks of life," adding, "We're now beginning to talk about how to end" the epidemic. "But we're not there yet," he continues, and writes, "[W]e know what to do, and where to do it, and we can do it; country by country, mother by mother, baby by baby, until no child is born with HIV." He concludes, "The world is closer than it has ever been to ending pediatric AIDS. Please join us as we move toward an AIDS-free generation" (2/21).
