Newborns free of HIV by 2015
02-16-14 01:41

The UN and the US government plan to eliminate HIV infection cases in newborns by 2015. The global campaign, called Countdown to Zero, is aimed at treating HIV-positive pregnant women cutting infection rates among their babies to less than 5%.

According to the UN, an infected baby is born nearly every minute; most of them are from sub-Saharan Africa. Michel Sidibé Executive Director of UNAIDS says: “We believe that by 2015 children everywhere can be born free of HIV and that their mothers can remain healthy”.

The plan will cost $2.5 billion but Ambassador Eric Goosby, the United States Global AIDS Coordinator, stressed that “…preventing new HIV infections among children across the globe is truly a smart investment that saves lives and helps to give children a healthy start in life”.
