Office of the Spokesperson
August 3, 2012
Secretary of State Hillary Rodham Clinton, joined by Uganda’s Minister of Health Dr. Christine Ondoa, on August 3, 2012, in Kampala, Uganda, highlighted the additional $25 million the U.S. government recently committed to help Uganda eliminate mother-to-child transmission of HIV.
Through the U.S. President’s Emergency Plan for AIDS Relief (PEPFAR), the U.S. government has invested more than $1 billion in the global effort to eliminate mother-to-child transmission of HIV. In the first half of this fiscal year, U.S. efforts to prevent mother-to-child transmission (PMTCT) reached more than 370,000 women around the world and are on track to reach an additional 1.5 million women by next year. The U.S. government seeks to ensure that HIV-positive pregnant women receive the treatment they need to protect themselves their partners, and prevent their babies becoming HIV positive. MORE.
