Through the leadership and support of the President's Emergency Plan for AIDS Relief (PEPFAR) and the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, the Elizabeth Glaser Pediatric AIDS Foundation is honored to have led Project HEART (Help Expand Antiretroviral Therapy to children and families), an eight-year initiative to extend life-saving prevention and treatment to millions of people living with HIV.

-- Project HEART was launched in 2004 in Côte d'Ivoire, South Africa, Tanzania, and Zambia, and in 2006 in Mozambique.

-- Through the project, more than one million men, women, and children received HIV care and support, and more than half a million people started ART. In 2010, one out of every 10 PEPFAR-supported ART patients in sub-Saharan Africa received their treatment through Project HEART.

-- More than 2.5 million pregnant women received HIV counseling and testing, and more than 66,500 pediatric HIV infections were prevented.

The Foundation produced this piece along with Long Story Short: Jessica Stuart Media, Inc. (http://jessica-stuart.com) in celebration of the achievements of Project HEART.
