Gender Matters: Overcoming Gender-related Barriers to Prevent New HIV Infections among Children and Keep their Mothers Alive. UNAIDS. (2014)


Approximately 660 children globally are estimated to acquire HIV every day, mostly during pregnancy, birth or breastfeeding. If pregnant women living with HIV and their children both have timely and continued access to antiretroviral medicines, it is possible to reduce new HIV infections among children to less than 5%. Furthermore, enrolment in services to prevent new HIV infections among children is increasingly being seen as an opportunity to enable women to access HIV treatment and care for their own health and well-being.
