for AIDS Treatment and Research
Help provide AIDS treatment and research by downloading a song or making a small donation. The proceeds will go to support one of the leading HIV/AIDS clinics in the world.
The HIV/AIDS pandemic has claimed the life of millions in South Africa, many of whom are mothers, and their children who are born with the virus. Through treatment provided by the PHRU, an HIV/AIDS research unit at the world’s largest hospital located in Soweto, a pregnant mother who is HIV positive can get access to medication and a program that will enable her to save the life or her child by beginning treatment during her pregnancy. This treatment costs a little over a dollar a day - which is more than the daily income of 40% of sub-Saharan Africa.
Through TakeTheWalk.net you can purchase a song or make a donation to HIVSA and provide the medicine needed to save the lives of children, stopping the cycle of the HIV/AIDS for the next generation.
HIVSA / The Perinatal HIV Research Unit
The Perinatal HIV Research Unit (PHRU), established in 1996, is one of the world’s leading HIV/AIDS research centers. Their early research focus on prevention of mother to child transmission has expanded and PHRU now leads studies on many different aspects of HIV prevention, treatment and care, including medical and social research.
The PHRU is a research unit of the University of the Witwatersrand, directed by Prof Glenda Gray and Prof James McIntyre. The unit is based in Soweto, South Africa at the Chris Hani Baragwanath Hospital, the world's largest hospital.
Provide treatment for 1 month for 250 mothers.
One month is the minimum amount of time that a mother would need to be part of HIVSA’s program to increase the chances of their child being born without the HIV virus.
