a Community Initiative for a HIV Free Generation
Year of completion: 2018
Location: Luwerezi, Malawi
What is needed to make sure zero babies are born HIV positive in Luwerezi, Mzimba? Help a Child and Livingstonia Synods Aids Program (LISAP) completed a three year program with funding from the Positive Action for Children Fund (PACF) to bring down the transmission of HIV from parent to child. The community initiative was about involving both mother and father. Knowing your HIV status together and what to do to prevent the virus to be passed on to your child is where it starts. It is possible and it is one of the successes of the project that was completed.
The project was implemented between April 2015 and March 2018 in Luwerezi, Northern Malawi.
