Join the EGPAF Google+ Hangout Tomorrow


Every single day, 1,000 mothers — some unaware they carry HIV — transfer the virus to their babies during pregnancy, childbirth or breastfeeding. Without treatment, 50 percent of HIV-positive infants will die before their second birthdays. As global leaders, researchers and activists descend upon Washington, DC for the International AIDS Conference, we must ask: What are the challenges HIV-positive mothers face in having HIV-negative children in the AIDS epidemic? We are at an important moment in the effort to create an AIDS-Free Generation. How do we keep the momentum going?

Join the Elizabeth Glaser Pediatric AIDS Foundation and us tomorrow Wednesday, July 25th at 2:00pm ET for a live Google+ Hangout on the International AIDS Conference and AIDS epidemic with Mom Bloggers for Social Good and EGPAF Ambassadors Florence Ngobeni-Allen and Martha Cameron. EGPAF ambassadors will answer these questions and share their own personal stories as HIV-positive mothers raising HIV-negative children.

RSVP for the event and we encourage you to submit questions for EGPAF ambassadors in the comments:
