HIV/AIDS

HIV/AIDS account for approximately 3 percent of all childhood deaths, brought about by mother-to-child transmission from birth or breast-feeding. Sadly, the relative contribution of HIV/AIDS to the total mortality of children under-five in sub-Saharan Africa continues to increase, as education and medical treatment are less frequently available.
