Breakthrough Partnership (BP)
Paediatric -Adolescent Treatment Africa (PATA) in partnership with Elizabeth Glaser Paediatric AIDS Foundation (EGPAF), AidsFonds, United Nations Children’s Fund (UNICEF), convened and supported by ViiV Healthcare’s Positive Action are implementing the Paediatric Breakthrough Partnership project in three countries− Uganda, Mozambique, and Nigeria. The Breakthrough Partnership (BP) aims to end paediatric and adolescent HIV in priority locations through developing a sustainable and replicable quality package of interventions that is informed by the UNICEF Paediatric Service Delivery Framework− “Improving HIV Service Delivery for Infants, Children and Adolescents: A framework for country programming.”
The interventions implemented by Breakthrough Partnership partners on the ground will be based on a gap analysis in the selected priority locations. The interventions together will be a comprehensive package of high quality as well as an example of coordinated partnership that can be adopted in national programming and guidelines. Additionally, the Breakthrough Partnership will utilise its collective value to amplify key advocacy messages and identify opportunities that contribute to closing the pediatric and adolescent HIV service delivery gap. The principle of linking and learning is a core component of the partnership to catalyse understanding, strengthen quality implementation and demonstrate the value of collaboration.
