Welcome to PATA

PATA is an action network of health providers and health facilities in sub-Saharan Africa. Our goal is to effect positive change in paediatric and adolescent HIV policy and service delivery on the frontline.

The PATA network offers a powerful platform for regional collaboration, capacity building and peer-to-peer exchange – closing gaps and building bridges for linking, learning and partnership in the paediatric-adolescent HIV response.

ACTIVE PEER SUPPORTERS

Over 20 years ago, initiatives for families and children to prevent vertical transmission and to eliminate children dying of AIDS truly kick-started what has now become our global AIDS response. This stemmed from an unprecedented activation of all partners, yet, despite early and dramatic progress, despite more tools and knowledge than ever before, children are falling way behind adults and way behind our goals. The inequalities are striking – children are nearly 40% less likely than adults to be on life-saving treatment (54% of children versus 74% of adults), and account for a disproportionate number of deaths (just 5% of all people living with HIV are children, but children account for 15% of all AIDS-related deaths). This is about children’s right to health and healthy lives, their value in our societies. It’s time to reactivate on all fronts – we need the leadership, activism, and investments to do what’s right for kids.”
