* UNICEF Goodwill Ambassador Angélique Kidjo calls for a scaling-up of treatment and support for children with HIV in Zimbabwe * Apr 28 2006 Every week in Zimbabwe 550 children die of an aids-related illness and a further 565 become infected with HIV. This means Zimbabwe is facing the worst rise in child mortality in the world and per capita has the most number of orphans on the planet UNICEF Goodwill Ambassador, Angélique Kidjo, met with some of Zimbabwe’s infected children at Harare Children’s Hospital where she witnessed first hand the scale of the emergency and listened to the problems children face when living with HIV and AIDS. Life-saving drugs remain in desperately short supply in Zimbabwe. Currently less than 5000 Zimbabwean children are receiving antiretroviral treatment UNICEF Zimbabwe already assists the government to procure ARVs for children. With additional support they are embarking on a massive, nationwide programme to improve the health, education, and nutrition for the country’s 1.6million orphans. SOUNDBITE (English) Angélique Kidjo, UNICEF Goodwill Ambassador: “What are we here to do? What is our duty towards these children? That is the question I am asking all the leaders of the world. You can not absolutely not take any decision that can jeopardise the future of the children of any country in any part of the world.” The tragedy is the vast majority of Zimbabwe’s 115,000 children who are HIV-positive could have been spared this burden. They contracted the virus through Mother-To-Child-Transmission. The world has the drugs that prevent this and yet less than 7% of Zimbabwe’s HIV-positive pregnant women receive them.
