Help women in the DRC keep their babies HIV free

Help women in the DRC keep their babies HIV free

    1. Sponsored by

      The Elizabeth Glaser Pediatric AIDS Foundation

HIV and AIDS are no longer the mysteries they once were. We now have the knowledge and the tools to keep all babies HIV free.

In a nation like the Democratic Republic of the Congo, where over 1,000,000 people are HIV positive and 70% of the population has little to no access to health care, keeping children healthy and HIV free is very challenging.

For ten years, the Elizabeth Glaser Pediatric AIDS Foundation has worked in the DRC to implement proven strategies to eliminate pediatric AIDS. Through testing, prenatal treatment, counseling, education on breastfeeding, and access to safe childbirth, thousands of potentially at-risk children are instead HIV free and thriving.

But funding is running out. To continue and expand this work, we must rally a worldwide movement of people who share our dream of a world in which no child is born with HIV. Join the fight and pledge your support now.

      AIDS is particularly a infection of the women, girls in third countries, AIDS in Africa is already an epidemic. Women, girls and female children in these countries are often mutilated, forced into marriage as children or young girls or are very often raped. Because many men are already infected with AIDS, more and more women, girls and female children are infected. It must be urgently taken precautionary measures for the protection of women, girls and children. Whoever intentionally women, girls and children with AIDS infects should be punished as a murderer, so the maximum penalty, women should also have access to condoms and other preventive measures, but that's just banned in Islamic countries. Also infected with genital mutilation knives, razor blades spread AIDS. FGM should therefore be banned worldwide as a felony. It is incomprehensible to me how they act in these barbaric countries with women and children and it should give and being built help centers for these women and children where they receive medical treatment, be advised and be protected. It is sad that t these women and children must be protect of their men in the country, but unfortunately it is so! AIDS is predominantly a disease of men, but unfortunately the risk of infection for women is much higher by the sperm is in mass rapes, rapes in child marriages and sexual intercourse. We must help worldwide every Aids Foundation!
