Freedom Foundation prevents mother-to-child transmission of HIV. Our goal: 25 people living with HIV/AIDS in friendly hospitals that deliver services to prevent HIV transmission from mother to child.
Beneficiaries are poor people infected with HIV/AIDS, specifically pregnant women and their newborn babies. Doctors and nurses fear handling deliveries of infected mothers. Poor hospital care results in increased rates of mother-child HIV transmission.
Anti-retroviral treatment for mothers and babies. Feeding for newborns. Testing for mother and child. Training of doctors, nurses, and helpers. Group counseling.
25 hospitals would emerge as centers for treating pregnant women with HIV/AIDS. 40,000 pregnant mothers will get access to counseling and testing annually.
I believe a small window exists on preventing HIV to our future children and to keep mothers alive. This is a unique opportunity to prevent HIV in our communities burdened with disease. - Dr. Ashok Rau, Executive Trustee and CEO
