World AIDS Day

The Children’s Project International joins organizations and individuals around the globe to recognize a human tragedy this World AIDS Day.

According to UNAIDS estimates, there are now 34 million people living with HIV, most of whom live in poor, developing countries. Home to just 10% of the world’s population, sub-Saharan Africa represents 60% of all AIDS infections with mother-to-child transmission posing a real threat to the most vulnerable human beings. Last year alone, UNAIDS estimates 390,000 children were newly infected with HIV. Health organizations and their allies have made great progress limiting the spread of the disease, however where access to preventive education is limited, the pandemic, and our struggle against it, continues.
