Paediatric HIV & TB : Rome Action Plan
The Rome Action Plan is a compilation of commitments by key stakeholders to accelerate research, development, registration, introduction and uptake of HIV & TB diagnostics and medicines for children living with HIV, with the ultimate objective of reducing morbidity and mortality among this high vulnerable group.
The Rome Action Plan is the product of a series of High Level Dialogues convened by His Eminence Peter Kodwo Appiah Cardinal Turkson, Prefect of the Vatican’s Dicastery for the Promotion of Integral Human Development, and organized by the Elizabeth Glaser Pediatric AIDS Foundation (EGPAF), the World Health Organization (WHO), the President's Emergency Plan for AIDS Relief (PEPFAR), the Joint United Nations Programme on HIV/AIDS (UNAIDS), faith-based organizations (FBOs) and global partner organizations.
EGPAF and WHO have the responsibility to monitor progress on the Action Plan and to promote full and timely implementation of the action points, including tracking progress towards milestones, and communicating regularly with participants about progress on their commitments and overall implementation of the Plan.
This website tracks the commitments of the Rome Action Plan.
