More significant pledges should be made to protect children’s health, as the NACA DG emphasized the significance of preventing preventable diseases, such as HIV.

As we remember our children on this day, let us also resolve to shield them from avoidable harm, such as the spread of HIV. It is within our ability to prevent the transmission of HIV, thus no child should have to start life carrying the virus. According to her, we can guarantee that all children have a chance to grow up healthy and strong by enhancing services for Prevention of Mother to Child Transmission (PMTCT).
