Photo of the Week: Fighting HIV in Nepal

Indra, with her husband and two daughters, remembers how she felt two years ago upon learning she was living with HIV: “I was so shocked that I neither spoke nor cried. I thought I would die soon.”

Now seven months into her third pregnancy, she regularly receives antenatal care and services to prevent mother-to-child transmission (PMTCT) of HIV, at a hospital in Achham District. UNICEF is supporting the Ministry of Health and Population’s work to expand access to PMTCT programmes. (Nepal, 2014)
