This is a heartfelt story from UNICEF about a family in Papua New Guinea in which the parents are living with HIV but because of a health intervention their child was born free of HIV.

Through a treatment course known as the Prevention of Mother to Child Transmission, a child can be born with out HIV, even if their mother is HIV positive. Stopping this transmission is a key front in the global fight against HIV/AIDS. It has been largely accomplished in the developing world, where such transmissions are rare. But in poorer countries programs like UNICEF are now getting off the ground.
