HIV-free toddler graduation
Since 2015, Kinondo Medical center has enrolled 320 HIV-positive women in the mentor mother program to promote safe childcare and to ensure that babies born from HIV-positive mothers are not infected. These babies are closely monitored yearly during five years to ensure that they stay negative. Of the children in this programme, 62 babies have reached the age of 2 years in the period under review. They are all HIV-negative.
Today we celebrated the 2-year graduation of 24 babies that have reached their 2 anniversary as HIV-negative, with birthday cake at Kinondo Kwetu Medical center
