HIV/AIDS

Around the world, HIV/AIDS adversely affects the lives of millions of people, particularly children. HIV/AIDS is preventable, and no child needs to be born HIV-positive. UNICEF works to prevent the transmission of HIV/AIDS from mother-to-child, provide pediatric treatment to children with HIV, and support children who have been left orphaned or vulnerable due to the effects of HIV/AIDs on their communities.
