Outside of the public sector, we're at least moving in the right direction -- but very slowly.

Gisele Bundchen: End Mother to Child Transmission -- Together, We Can Make a Difference
Today, more than 1,000 babies are born with HIV every day in the developing world. As a mother, this statistic really breaks my heart, especially when as many as 98% of these cases could be prevented.
