HIV mother to child transmission
Agustina*, 19, speaks in a hushed voice as her baby sleeps in a hanging cot. She tested positive over two years ago. She gave birth to her son 18 months ago. He is HIV positive. Lack of awareness about the disease means many infants are infected through childbirth or breastfeeding. Although she knew of her HIV positive condition, Agustina was unaware of the implications for her child's health.
