The Positive Action for Children Fund
The Positive Action for Children Fund (PACF) is an integral part of ViiV Healthcare’s Commitment to Communities affected by HIV and AIDS. The Organization supports Prevention of mother-to-child Transmission (PMTCT) of HIV services across the globe. Every year, one of the big challenges is to form new partnerships with community focused organizations; who strive to alleviate the devastating effects of the HIV/AIDS pandemic. PACF supports organizations across four continents, with special attention given to countries with the most need of PMTCT interventions: Nigeria, Democratic Republic of Congo, Uganda, Ethiopia, Cameroon, Mozambique, Zimbabwe, Zambia, Malawi, Angola, Burundi, Chad, Tanzania, Kenya and India. PACF’s efforts align to UNAIDS' Global Plan and the World Health Organization’s PMTCT Strategy, both of which aim to eliminate new HIV infections among children and keep their mothers alive. The Fund also aims to alleviate the impact of HIV and AIDS on women and children’s health by supporting interventions that engage affected communities, developing their capacity to participate and lead.
