South African 'Mentor Mothers' lower HIV infection rates among pregnant women
The incidence of HIV infection in South Africa tops that of any nation in the world, with some 6 million of the country’s nearly 50 million residents infected.

More than one-fourth of pregnant South African women are infected with the virus; in some communities, the infection rates are even higher. But those infection rates might be reduced — and the overall health of children improved — through community-based peer counseling programs, according to a new study conducted by UCLA’s Mary Jane Rotheram-B...

I’ve always thought that one of the reasons my son Dan never dealt with recovery avoidance is because his values were crystal clear to him, and he was determined not to l...
