Unite For Children Unite Against AIDS

"Every day

  • There are nearly 1,800 new HIV infections in children under 15, mostly
    from mother-to-child transmission
  • 1,400 children under 15 die of AIDS-related illness
  • More than 6,000 young people aged 15–24 are newly infected with HIV

After more than 20 years

  • Less than 10 per cent of pregnant women are being offered services to
    prevent transmission of HIV to their infants
  • Less than 10 per cent of the children who have been orphaned or made
    vulnerable by AIDS receive public support or services
  • Less than one third of young women aged 15–24 in sub-Saharan Africa
    fully understand how to avoid the disease.

Millions of children, adolescents and young people in the path of the pandemic are at risk and in need of protection. AIDS is redefining the very meaning of childhood for millions, depriving children of many of their human rights – of the care, love and affection of their parents; of their teachers and other role models; of education and options for the future; of protection against exploitation and abuse.

The world must act now, urgently and decisively, to ensure that the next generation of children is AIDS-free." (unicef)
