Join The Fight To End Pediatric HIV For World AIDS Day

world-aids-day-pediatric-hiv #WAD2012 #globalteam0f200

I was only 18 when I had my first child. I had very little knowledge about caring for an infant other than attending to her basic needs. When it was discovered that she was born with severe asthma and other health conditions, I did not know what to do. It is only by the expertise of doctors and access to medicine that she is well and healthy today.

.

 I could not imagine what I would have done without it.

 . 

Tragically, there are many moms who are not as fortunate.

 . 

900 times each day, mothers transfer HIV to their newborn babies because they lack knowledge or access to medicine. In many cases, these transfers result in a very uncomfortable life for the child, and even death. What is worse is that every single one of these situations is completely preventable proper with medical care and treatment.

 .

900. That is a lot. And there is something that we can do to help.

 .

 .

The Elizabeth Glaser Pediatric AIDS Foundation has joined forces with the global health community in a mission to eliminate the number of cases of HIV transferred from mother to infant around the world. They have set the goal of zero cases by 2015, and with the help of social action and contributions, it can be achieved.

Testing, prenatal care, and safe childbirth are the main ways in which pediatric HIV can be prevented. A donation of simply $30 can provide such care and treatment to one mother, for one month. Donations of $100 or more can help 3-5 mothers.

Thank you for covering this topic! In highschool I trained with the American Red Cross and a program in my hometown to educate my peers on Aids. I learned so much and met some great people on that journey. Thank you again for sharing!
