Elizabeth Glaser (November 11, 1947 ? December 3, 1994), was a major American AIDS activist and child advocate married to actor and director Paul Michael Glaser.
Glaser co-founded the Elizabeth Glaser Pediatric AIDS Foundation in 1988. Glaser’s work raised public awareness about HIV infection in children and spurred funding for the development of pediatric AIDS drugs as well as research into mother-to-child transmission (MTCT) of HIV.
Before her death in 1994, Glaser entered the national spotlight as a speaker at the 1992 Democratic National Convention. She criticized the federal government’s under-funding of AIDS research and its lack of initiative in tackling the AIDS crisis.
