Pledge Your Support to End Pediatric HIV/AIDS!
By Johanna Harvey | August 12, 2013
Each day, nearly 900 babies are born with HIV, but with the right treatment, we can prevent the transmission of pediatric AIDS from mother to child nearly 100 percent of the time.
For Sabina, a cloth-maker from Tanzania, finding out she was HIV-positive felt like the end of the world. She was five months pregnant with her son when a regular prenatal checkup revealed her status. But thanks to prevention of mother-to-child transmission (PMTCT) services provided by the Elizabeth Glaser Pediatric AIDS Foundation (EGPAF), her son was born HIV-free!
We need your help to reach more women like Sabina and eliminate pediatric HIV/AIDS. Add your voice to this effort and together, we can give the same hope to mothers around the world.
