They’re brothers in arms today, but just a few years ago 12-year-old Pascal would have been too sick to play with his
younger brother, Bernard. He’s HIV-positive, and until he started receiving life saving antiretrovirals, he was often too sick to get out of bed. Pascal was infected through his mother, Celine; she gave birth to him not knowing her own
positive HIV status.


“I found out my child was pos in similar circumstance, he was always sick, he couldn’t eat, he was put on a drip, he
was so sick he nearly died, finally he was tested and he was also HIV positive.”


Supported by UNICEF, Ouagadougou’s St. Camille clinic has been the pioneering facility in Burkina Faso for HIV and
AIDS care since 2001. Through the clinic’s HIV/Aids programme both Celine and her son received antiretroviral therapy.


When she fell pregnant a second time, Celine once again approached the clinic and enrolled in the Prevention of Mother To Child Transmission programme. She was just one of the 1500 women who enroll in the programme each year. At least 10% of the women turn out to be HIV pos, but through pmtct interventions, it’s no longer a given that their babies will become infected.


The UNICEF-supported pediatric section receives referrals from all over the city and at present monitors over 200
children who are either already HIV positive or showing signs of having the virus.


The battle against HIV and Aids in Burkina Faso extends beyond St Camille’s walls. A team of peer educators has taken to the streets. They’re part of the Reseau Africain Jeunesse Sante et Developpement network, which has over 1500 clubs across the country. Supported by Unicef, they encourage their peers to talk about the virus and dispel many of the myths about how it is transmitted. They are one of many groups who use education, information and awareness to reduce the risk these young people face in getting infected.
