Launched June 2011, the Global Plan towards the Elimination of New HIV Infections among Children by 2015 and Keeping their Mothers Alive (Global Plan) is an unprecedented effort to leverage and coordinate contributions of various partners to virtually eliminate mother-to-child transmission of HIV. This session will demonstrate how the Global Plan is mobilizing political, technical, and financial resources needed to achieve elimination through its focus on 22 high-burden countries that account for 90% of annual new pediatric HIV infections globally; outline progress achieved to date on implementation and the leadership of national governments in marshalling resources, developing national plans, and scaling up high quality services; and highlight the vital contributions of bilateral and multilateral donors as well as the private sector, the work of technical experts and implementers in supporting countries with the best technical guidance and support, the role civil society, and the importance of high-level advocacy efforts toward advancing the Global Plan.
