An “AIDS Free Generation” is not some pie-in-the-sky dream. It is an achievable goal that is not terribly complex to achieve. What we need to do is make sure that pregnant mothers in HIV endemic countries are tested; and if they test positive, adhere to a series of medicines that virtually eliminates their chances of passing HIV to their child.

Swaziland is doing to a good job on this front, and is on its way to sharply reducing mother-to-child transmission of HIV. From UNICEF.
