HEALTHY MUM= HEALTHY BABY PROJECT

Prevention of Mother to Child Transmission started in 2007 with support from the National AIDS Control Programme. Over 1000 women have and continue to benefit from this intervention at the onsite clinic.  Since 2014 the onsite clinic has not recorded a single case of HIV infection of the babies among it cohort of HIV infected mothers.


Healthy Mum - Healthy Baby is a program dedicated to the nutritional needs of HIV expectant mothers and their babies. In addition to the many challenges HIV positive women face, HIV positive pregnant women endure more challenges ranging from stigma to inability to afford good nutrition.

Apart from providing nutritional items, IHCC staff educates on a full range of topics about motherhood and assist mothers including providing nutritional services. The program continued its path of success with various sessions from January to December 2015.

The number of women participating in the program has increased. Contrary to the previous year, now on average, we have not less than ten (10) women in each session. This was the case for all sessions throughout January to December, accounting for a total of twelve (12) women being on the program.  Ten (10) of these women have given birth to healthy bouncing babies, two (2) of them, not yet. We have ten (10) women still on the program.
