Child AIDS Prevention
One dose. One dollar. One life saved.
Working together to prevent mother-to-child transmission of HIV/AIDS in Africa
Child AIDS Prevention Project
With a goal of eliminating pediatric AIDS in Africa, The Child AIDS Prevention (CAP) project is designed to encourage Rotarians to work together to raise funds for
• Education and training
• HIV testing
• Life-saving drugs
Each year, over 2 million HIV-infected pregnant women give birth to 700,000 HIV-infected infants.
The life expectancy of infected babies is three years. A single does of nevirapine given to the mother and infant could prevent 350,000 infant infections each year.
