December 1 marks World AIDS Day. A day of worldwide solidarity to unite in the fight against HIV. With a new set of global targets for 2030, it is more important than ever to galvanize support around this day with an eye towards the future: envisioning the world we want to have in the next 10 years.
While mother-to-child transmission of HIV has been nearly eliminated from industrialized countries, progress has been slower in many African countries. Nearly 1.3 million cases of HIV have been averted as a result of the scale-up of programs to prevent mother-to-child-transmission of HIV. However, less than 50% of exposed infants under two months of age are tested for HIV.
Join us to spread the word about the continued fight against AIDS using #EveryNewborn, #HIVprevention and #WorldAIDSDay.
