Meet my adorable nephew, Usher. It is said that in Sub Saharan Africa, almost 1000 babies born each day are HIV+ and may never live to see their 5th birthday simply because they have unnecessarily been infected through their mothers.

Noted; never realised so many babies were born with Aids EVERY DAY. The pharmaceutical companies have to take their share of blame as they refuse to lower the prices on the necessary medicines. Always money......

I wonder why the African or South African governments don't give these mothers the necessary medication, surely they do have the medication available?

As long as the Catholic church prohibits the use of condoms....this problem will continue. Much of Africa is officially Catholic and these poor people do what the Pope tells them to do.

I guess I'm becoming the condom king today. Christian organizations like the Red Cross, and the Salvation Army, are not proponents of birth control. They help with the infected, and the dying, and advise people to not have sex if one partner is HIV positive. This is a solution?

I watched a documentary last night about the plight of children and babies born in Africa with Aids, it was heartbreaking to see these mothers weep for their children and bury them. It was disturbing to listen to how cheap the medication these people need can be bought for.There used to be a click to give on care2 for the prevention of aids but it disappeared, maybe it would be a good idea if this was started up again. Thank you Brian.

Need to find a way to change attiiytudes towards sex and women, this will be a hard thing to do.

A few who don't take care are enough to (re)spread this desease even if the great majority act safely.
