Congratulations to Cuba! 

Certified as having eliminated HIV & Syphilis transmission from mother to child.

In 2007 the WHO developed the elimination of MTCT policy - all regions have been working towards elimination. There is a structured validation process to approve and celebrate successful countries/regions. Cuba is the first country to reach this target!

Worldwide there's much work to be done - almost 1,000,000 pregnant women have HIV. Assuming  a rate of 2% MTCT, there are a still a number of children diagnosed and a significant number more at risk.
