The Elizabeth Glaser Pediatric AIDS Foundation seeks to prevent pediatric HIV infection and to eradicate pediatric AIDS through research, advocacy, and prevention and treatment programs.
Started in 1988 by Elizabeth Glaser, the Elizabeth Glaser Pediatric AIDS Foundation has become the premier source for research concerning pediatric AIDS. The foundation was born through the love of a mother, who accidently passed the AIDS virus to her children. From there Glaser developed the foundation as a source of hope for children infected with the disease. Thanks to the foundation, there is today an entire field of research dedicated to pediatric AIDS that did not exist before the creation of the foundation. The Elizabeth Glaser Pediatric AIDS Foundation has stayed true to their goal of the eradication of pediatric AIDS, but has also begun to expand their efforts to battle the global AIDS crisis.
The Elizabeth Pediatric AIDS Foundation offers both full time jobs as well as internships within the foundation. Jobs and internships vary in location from Washington D.C. to the heart of the AIDS crisis in Africa. The jobs and internships available through the foundation tend to vary with the need for hire. Job categories include accounting, management, and technical assistance. For more information on current job and internship offerings visit their website at pedaids.org.
