Grandmothers, mothers and aunts in Africa take care of their HIV+ children with very few resources. Most families enrolled in our pediatric HIV care program face food insecurity, illness, impact of HIV, and have insufficient knowledge about HIV.
Pediatric HIV Care
Zambia is among the 20 countries with the highest malaria incidence and mortality globally. Most families living in resource poor neighborhoods, are vulnerable to malaria but do not have the information on how to prevent malaria or the resources to purchase mosquito bed nets.
Today we are thinking of mothers and aunts in Africa whose families are vulnerable to COVID. Families in Zambia are especially vulnerable as they have little or no information about COVID and have weaker immune systems if living with HIV.
Dear friend: Happy Summer!
Dear Power of Love Friend: Happy March! In Zambia, transmission rates for malaria are high throughout the country. To keep vulnerable families malaria free, 3,000 insecticide treated nets were provided in rural and urban areas in Zambia. Nets provision was preceded by a demonstration and education session, and all activities were completed in a safe manner.
Dear Friend: Wishing that 2021 is filled with good health and happiness for you and your family. This year could be a turning point in ending AIDS if a vaccine for HIV become available.
Dear Friend: Happy holidays! Looking back 2020 has been a tough year.
Dear Friend: Happy World AIDS Day! Every year, December 1 is designated to support adults and children living with HIV, and to pledge to continue the fight against HIV and AIDS. We believe that together we can end AIDS. In Zambia, only 59% of all people living with HIV have undetectable viral loads; this number must be increased to 75% for the epidemic to end.
