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.
