Help women in the DRC keep their babies HIV free
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.
I pledge to support programs that help mothers in the DRC keep their babies HIV free.
Funding is in danger, leaving many women and children vulnerable. I stand with millions of people around the world in calling for an end to pediatric AIDS within this generation. If we stand together and speak as one, we can make the dream of a world without pediatric AIDS a reality.
We have the knowledge. We have the tools. We have the facilities. Now we just need the collective will to eliminate pediatric AIDS for good.
The Elizabeth Glaser Pediatric AIDS Foundation started this pledge with a single signature, and now has 4,664 supporters. Start a petition today to change something you care about.
