The woman we'll call Jeanne, not her real name, is trying her best to resume a normal life.


She's HIV positive, six months pregnant and homeless.


The earthquake destroyed her home and killed the father of her unborn child, and she has no job, which was also a casualty of the earthquake.


For now, she's living in a cramped tent with 14 other people. It's been seven weeks since the earthquake, but the memory is still alive in her mind.


"I saw a falling wall coming at me and I tried to protect my stomach because I'm pregnant. A brick hit my shoulder and my finger was crushed. I wrapped my finger in a piece of cloth and wandered the streets. I didn't even know anyone was in the house."


Remarkably, her access to antiretroviral medication was only disrupted one day. UNICEF has been working with partners like GHESKIO, the largest AIDS clinic in Port-au-Prince, to ensure that women have continued access to their medication, as well as access to services that will prevent the transmission of the virus to their unborn children.


Another concern is providing uninterrupted service to the mass of HIV-positive people who fled Port-au-Prince after the earthquake. Many of the clinics on the ground rely on financial support from UNICEF.

"We're basically making sure that everything – whatever medication, (midwifery) kits, that these clinics need to continue, with an upscale treatment for women, whether it's HIV/AIDS or basic maternal and child health."


Jeanne knows she has a difficult road ahead. She also knows the importance of staying as healthy as possible, for herself and for her child, a girl who is due in May.
