Int. Zonta Hilfsprojekt: Prävention der Übertragung des Aids-Virus von Müttern auf ihre Kinder in Ruanda

Eines der internationalen Hilfsprojekte von Zonta basiert auf der Zusammenarbeit mit UNICEF im Kampf gegen die Übertragung des Aids-Virus von Müttern auf ihre Kinder. Nachstehend das offizielle Projekt (von der Website von Zonta International) und ein eindringliches Video zum Thema.

„During the 2010-2012 Biennium, three projects are being supported by the International Service Program Fund:

  • Prevention of Mother to Child Transmission of HIV and Gender-Based Violence in Rwanda

Funding: US$500,000 to UNICEF (United Nations Children’s Fund)
Women and children in Rwanda are still vulnerable to the repercussions of the genocide and war that took place 16 years ago.  Treating HIV-positive women, preventing transmission of the virus to their offspring, and ensuring access to health care and reproductive services, as well as preventing and responding to the violence awoken by the brutalization of the society during the genocide, are critical issues for the development of Rwanda and the safety of its women and children.  Building on the success of the project during the 2008-2010 Biennium, the project will continue focus on the prevention of mother-to-child transmission of HIV by providing the full range of family package services at 20 UNICEF-supported PMTCT sites throughout Rwanda during the 2010-2012  Biennium.  In addition, the project will seek to expand holistic care and services at support centers for survivors of domestic and gender-based violence to ensure access to proper medical, legal, psychosocial and police support.“
