139,000 Mozambique Babies Born With HIV in Six Months

April 10, 2007

A UNICEF report released Monday estimates some 139,000 babies were born with HIV in Mozambique during the past six months, and another 20,000 Mozambican children under age five died from AIDS in the last year. However, UNICEF reported that about 146,000 pregnant women were diagnosed as HIV-positive and given drug treatment to prevent mother-to-child HIV transmission. About 1.5 million people in the nation have HIV/AIDS.
