The End of HIV

AT THE PEAK OF THE HIV EPIDEMIC, NEARLY HALF A MILLION CHILDREN WERE INFECTED WITH HIV AT BIRTH EACH YEAR. BUT A COORDINATED GLOBAL EFFORT IS ELIMINATING MOTHER TO CHILD TRANSMISSION OF HIV TO ENSURE THAT EVERY CHILD IS BORN FREE.
    • THE END OF HIV IS WITHIN OUR REACH, AND IT BEGINS WITH THE PREVENTION OF MOTHER TO CHILD TRANSMISSION. ALTHOUGH WORK REMAINS TO REACH THE GLOBAL GOAL OF ELIMINATION, ACCELERATION HAS BEEN ACHIEVED AROUND THE WORLD. AS OF 2015, A 60% DECLINE IN MOTHER TO CHILD TRANSMISSION HAS BEEN ACHIEVED IN THE COUNTRIES MOST AFFECTED BY THIS ISSUE. THE FIGHT CONTINUES TO ENSURE THAT CHILDREN AROUND THE WORLD WILL BE BORN HIV FREE.
