"If you follow the treatment you will live longer and the baby you are expecting is going to need you and depend on you"
"1 in 3 are HIV positive"
"Many HIV positive expectant mothers carry the burden of guilt often feeling responsible for threatening their child with the HIV virus. By increasing the odds that their child will be negative the mother to baby pack is a
