The kingdom of Lesotho. With nearly a quarter of its adult population living with HIV, the landlocked nation has one of the highest HIV burdens in the world.


Compounded by poverty and food insecurity, the country has nevertheless embarked on a journey to reverse the spread of HIV, and making prevention, treatment and care accessible to all.


Soundbite (English), Dr. Mphu Ramatlapeng, Minister of Health and Social Welfare, Lesotho SOT:
"The main achievement of the government of Lesotho was the introduction of the "Know Your Status" campaign. Our other major achievement is rollout of prevention of mother-to-child transmission program. The bottom line is we cannot afford to have people infecting other people. We cannot afford to have so many people dying and leaving children behind."


Malehloa Pitso found out her HIV status when she was pregnant with her second child. Despite the initial shock and discrimination from others, she followed her treatment regiment rigorously, and gave birth to a healthy baby free of HIV.


Malehloa Pitso now works for "Mothers2Mothers," an NGO that supports HIV positive mothers to live healthy lives and prevents babies from contracting HIV through mother-to-child transmission.


Soundbite (English), Malehloa Pitso, 32
SOT: "So I'm also helping other mothers to be like me, to have babies like mine. So when you see a positive—positive baby in the facilities, it's very rare, and it's like I wasn't doing anything. I wasn't doing my job."
