CRANBURY, N.J., April 13, 2021 /PRNewswire/ -- Contemporary Pediatrics®, a trusted multimedia platform featuring clinical articles, case studies, and practice management tips for pediatricians and other pediatric health care providers, has announced the addition of the Elizabeth Glaser Pediatric AIDS Foundation (EGPAF) to its Strategic Alliance Partnership (SAP) program.
"We are so proud to announce our Strategic Alliance Partnership with the Elizabeth Glaser Pediatric AIDS Foundation," said Mike Hennessy Jr., president and CEO of MJH Life Sciences™, parent company of Contemporary Pediatrics®. "This partnership with a world-renowned foundation dedicated to improving the lives of pediatric patients will allow us to enhance the trusted content that is disseminated through the Contemporary Pediatrics® platform."
EGPAF is a nonprofit organization working to help children with HIV and AIDS to live full, healthy lives into adulthood. Since being founded over 30 years ago, EGPAF has been a proven leader in meeting the urgent needs of pediatric patients with HIV and AIDS in some of the world's most affected regions, with programs largely based in sub-Saharan Africa.
With a global reach, EGPAF can combat the HIV and AIDS epidemic on a vast scale, prioritizing children, youth, and families in the United States and around the world. To date, EGPAF has supported over 15,000 sites in 17 countries. Additionally, EGPAF is supported by several notable donors and collaborators such as Johnson & Johnson, the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation, the Elton John AIDS Foundation, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, Disney, UNICEF, and more.
EGPAF remains committed to reaching its goals, which include advancing research and innovations that lead to improved, scalable solutions for ending HIV and AIDS; advocating on the global stage for resources, policies, and leadership needed at local levels to address the epidemic; strengthening local health care systems; and growing the capabilities of governments and communities through providing technical expertise and proven solutions. EGPAF works toward these goals through research, advocacy, capacity building, and making its presence known on a global scale.
"Since 2000, new pediatric HIV infections around the world have been reduced by more than half, yet every day, nearly 500 children are newly infected because their families lack access to the health services they need to prevent transmission," said Clare Dougherty, EGPAF's vice president for external affairs. "The Elizabeth Glaser Pediatric AIDS Foundation is excited to partner with Contemporary Pediatrics® to further our shared goal of advocating for children, youth, and families to live long, healthy lives."
