HIV-Free Babies and Treatment of Infected Families



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.

What is the issue, problem, or challenge?

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.

How will this project solve this problem?

Anti-retroviral treatment for mothers and babies. Feeding for newborns. Testing for mother and child. Training of doctors, nurses, and helpers. Group counseling.

Potential Long Term Impact

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.
