Pediatric HIV Care
Dear Power of Love Friend: Happy new year! We have a wonderful piece of news to kick start 2018: in Florida, a group of scientists have demonstrated a "functional cure" for HIV. In a novel approach, a new compound effectively suppresses production of the HIV virus.
Dear Power of Love Friend: We hope you are having a wonderful and relaxing summer!
Key Program Activities and Impact in 2017
Over the last ten years, this program has grown, matured, and continues to provide a comprehensive package of lifesaving health care services to 350 HIV+ children and their families in Zambia. Key program activities completed in 2017 are given below:
With your support, we are seeing a reduced incidence of HIV in our community, and fewer new HIV infections especially amongst children born to HIV+ moms. A critical element of our pediatric HIV care program is the training in HIV prevention and care provided to families of all 350 HIV+ children.
Dear Power of Love Friend: Happy July! UNAIDS has set an ambitious goal: to end AIDS by 2030. This can be achieved if 73% (compared to 25-37% today), of all people living with HIV are on medication.
Dear Power of Love Friend: Happy April! Today we would like you to meet Alex who enrolled in our pediatric HIV care program last year. Alex inspires us with his cheerful attitude and love for learning amidst difficult circumstances. Both his parents are HIV+ and he was suffering from fever, lack of appetite, weight loss, and diarrhea since he was a baby.
