Mother's Day is May 12 - give a gift of a healthy baby to a Mom in Zambia. The Power of Love team would like to thank its friends and donors who have supported our pediatric HIV care program in Zambia. With generous support from donors, we have been able continue to improve the lives of several hundred children and families impacted by HIV, AIDS, and malaria. You can learn more about the Mother-to-Child HIV Prevention program on its program page.
The MTC HIV Prevention program is an elements of our pediatric HIV care program. As discussed in our last report, eleven children were born in our MTC program in 2012 and all of them tested negative for HIV. This is remarkable as the newborns all have mothers and siblings who are HIV positive. Of the 23 children born since we launched the MTC program, 22 have been born HIV negative.
Given below are stories of two children born HIV-free to HIV+ mothers in our program. These healthy newborns have confirmed our belief that with proper intervention we can reduce/eliminate new pediatric HIV infections. As always, we appreciate your support as we could not have done this without you.
