At a U.N. summit this past June, the Elizabeth Glaser Pediatric AIDS Foundation announced its “Global Plan Towards the Elimination of New HIV Infections Among Children by 2015 and Keeping Their Mothers Alive.” Is that
a realistic goal? The stats suggest so:
The rate of mother-to-child transmission (MTCT) of HIV in South Africa where prevention of mother-to-child transmission (PMTCT) services are available during pregnancy.
The MTCT rate in areas with less access to PMTCT services.
The MTCT rate in areas with no PMTCT services.
