Today we are at a critical point in the fight against AIDS: great progress has been achieved, and mother-to-child transmission can be prevented with the right treatment — but we need to maintain enough global support to ensure that this progress can continue.
Since 2002, the Global Fund to Fight AIDS, Tuberculosis and Malaria has been at the forefront of the battle against HIV and AIDS, including the prevention of mother-to-child transmission. With enough support, it is possible that no child will be born with HIV by 2015.
The following slideshow tells the story of a family in Rwanda fighting the disease and stigma that often accompanies it, with the support of a health center financed by the Global Fund.
With World AIDS Day quickly approaching us this Thursday, when you look at these images, bear in mind that we could be the generation that saves future generations from the burden of HIV and AIDS.
