Every minute of every day, a child is born with HIV. We must stop this and we can. Treatment is now available to help a mother prevent the transmission of HIV to her child.
Just because a Mum is HIV positive doesn’t mean that her child has to be born with the virus; it is relatively easy to prevent. Why wouldn’t we support such intervention when it can make such a huge difference? This short video about one child’s story is worth watching, just 2 mins.
PMTCT is an integral part of our proposal for funding which is being submitted to The Global Fund at the end of this month.
