A frightening statistic by the World Health Organisation states that almost every minute of every day, a baby is born with HIV, passed on by their mother during pregnancy, labour or delivery. This is because very few mums with HIV in poor countries receive the medicine and health care to free their babies from HIV and thus remains undetected.
Basic screening tests for expectant mothers will help identify any issues early enough to treat. Testing is always voluntary.
This gift will enable us to provide the right medicine and care to reduce the chance of a mother with HIV passing the virus to her baby.
