Global Plan Towards the Elimination of New HIV Infections Among Children by 2015 and Keeping Their Mothers Alive. UNAIDS (2011)

Global Plan_Elimination_HIV_Children

We believe by 2015, children everywhere can be born free of HIV and their mothers remain alive. The goal of the Global Plan is to move towards eliminating new HIV infections among children and keeping their mothers alive. This plan focuses on reaching
pregnant women living with HIV and their children—from the time of pregnancy until the mother stops breastfeeding. Prior to
pregnancy, and after breastfeeding ends, HIV prevention and treatment needs of mothers and children will be met within the existing continuum of comprehensive programmes to provide HIV prevention, treatment, care and support for all who need it.
