VOA News Examines Five-Year Program to Eliminate Pediatric AIDS in Zimbabwe
January 25, 2011
VOA News reports on the Elizabeth Glaser Pediatric AIDS Foundation's five-year $45 million program that aims "to eliminate pediatric HIV/AIDS in Zimbabwe." The program receives support from the London-based Children's Investment Fund Foundation. "Zimbabwe was picked for two reasons. One, because over the last five or six years, we have seen significant progress in the parts of the country where we have been working. But more importantly, the overall reason was that relatively few pregnant women in Zimbabwe have access to health services. And that's particularly true in rural areas," said Philip O'Brien, the Glaser Foundation's executive vice-president for communications, advocacy and development (DeCapua, 1/21).
