Early Treatment or Immunity? Child Born With HIV Now Free of Infection #WATWB

banner-520-x120-whiteThis blog is joining the “We are the World Blogfest” to help infuse social media with all the good stories that are out there.

This story was really heartwarming for me, it’s amazing how far AIDS treatment has come in the past couple decades.

A 9-year-old child born with the AIDS virus was treated briefly with antiretroviral medication as a baby and is now reported to be free of the infection.

We Are The World Blogfest ~~GUIDELINES~~~

1. Keep your post to below 500 words, as much as possible.
2. All we ask is you link to a human news story on your blog on the last Friday of each month, one that shows love, humanity, and brotherhood. Something like this news, about a man who only fosters terminally ill children.
3. Join us on the last Friday of each month in sharing news that warms the cockles of our heart. No story is too big or small, as long as it goes beyond religion and politics, into the core of humanity.
4. Place the WE ARE THE WORLD Badge on your sidebar (see the bottom of this page) and help us spread the word on social media. Tweets, Facebook shares, G+ shares using the #WATWB hashtag through the month most welcome. More Blogfest signups mean more friends, love and light for all of us.
5. We’ll read and comment on each others’ posts, get to know each other better, and hopefully, make or renew some friendships with everyone who signs on as participants in the coming months.
6. To signup, add your link in WE ARE THE WORLD Linky List below.

    Hi Steven – yes … there’s been so much medical research into helping those with HIV – that’s brilliant that babies are being given a chance too … and your example shows us that the research does work … thanks for letting us know – cheers Hilary
