We are a not-for-profit organization founded on a vision to make an HIV-vaccine that can be globally accessible and relevant that would stop AIDs in our lifetime. In January 2004 we opened "Chez Rosalie" in the southeast country of Africa called Malawi. We remain committed to our mission and have devoted specific clinical efforts aimed at eliminating the transfer of HIV from the mother to her newborn in childbirth. We have achieved a 100% success rate of stopping the transfer of HIV to the child
Currently more than 35 million people world are living with HIV/AIDs. Of these 35 million people with HIV/AIDs, 70% of them live in sub-saharan Africa- including 88% of the worlds HIV-infected children. The country of Malawi (Mali) is among the world's most least developed countries and has one of the lowest life expectancy rates and highest infant mortality rates. These rates have been linked to Malawi's significantly high HIV/AIDs prevalence rate.
We have created the Chez Rosalie clinic to treat and provide mothers before and after pregnancy with HIV care. A main goal at the clinic is to completely stop the transfer of HIV from the mother to the newborn child during childbirth. Through our diligent efforts, we have successfully achieved a 100% rate of stopping the spread of HIV to the child. In order to continue our efforts and continue to have a high success rate we need to continue our treatment and care of the women and children.
If the spread of HIV is eliminated from the mother to the infant during childbirth, that is one more individual who has avoided HIV transmission. Children, having the greatest HIV prevalence worldwide, should be a main focus for prevention. If we can eliminate and prevent the spread of HIV to a child, that will eliminate the growth of the disease.
