We believe that birth should be about life and nothing else, which is often something we take for granted. Yet, for the 1.3 million HIV-positive women who will give birth in the next year this is not the reality.
The transmission of HIV from mother-to-child is preventable; the million women reached by mothers2mothers, and the children who have been born HIV negative are proof of this. Despite this, AIDS is still a leading cause of maternal death and 260,000 children are born with HIV each year. Without treatment, 50% these children will die before their second birthday.
We now have the chance to make birth about life, and nothing else. mothers2mothers wants to make this a reality for a million more mothers. Join us:
