Preventing HIV in South African Babies

May 10, 2013

Steady progress being made

Steady progress has been made thus far with the preparations for the launch of this campaign on the 1st August 2013. The content for the information booklet for mothers is being developed by a team of pediatricians and communication specialists. The individuals involved in developing our booklet for mothers were heavily involved in the development of the newly launched National Prevention of Mother-To-Child Transmission (PMTCT) Policy for South Africa. There are few others in South Africa who understand this policy as well as these professionals and we are privileged and honored to have them working with us.

Listen out for our Yezingane Network Chairperson Prof. Ashraf Coovadia speaking about the campaign on SAFM ( on Wednesday 15th May at 19h00 South African time (Africa/Johannesburg). To see what time this is in your country visit


We sincerely appreciate your support and contributions to this project, and we will continue to keep you updated on the progress and impact that your invest is making in the lives of South African mothers and babies.

Thank you,

Kyle Ballard
