MOTHERS AND BABIES
No child should be born with HIV. Without intervention, one in three babies born to mothers living with HIV, will contract the virus either in the womb, at birth or while being breastfed.
But, with the correct treatment, care and support it is possible for children to be born HIV-free.
One to One Children’s Fund is eliminating mother to child HIV transmission. Women are accessing life-saving antiretroviral treatment, healthcare, information and support throughout pregnancy, birth and breastfeeding to ensure their babies are born HIV-free.
Our Mentor Mothers provide house-to-house healthcare and support that is transforming the lives of vulnerable mothers and babies, and building the foundation for a healthier future for the whole community in Mankosi, South Africa.
