Gabon : environ 4 000 enfants affectés par le VIH

« Au Gabon, le test du VIH fait partie du bilan prénatal. Toutes les femmes enceintes testées positives, bénéficient d’un soutien particulier au service de la prévention de la transmission du sida de la mère à l’enfant. »

Au Gabon environ 4 000 enfants sont infectés par le VIH ; 40% meurent avant leur premier anniversaire. Ces chiffres émanent de la représentation locale de l’Unicef qui a récemment fait un don qui permettra de dépister les bébés dès leur naissance au lieu d’attendre 18 mois comme c’est le cas aujourd’hui. Le matériel de dépistage donné par l’Unicef n’est pas encore opérationnel mais il suscite déjà beaucoup d’espoir.
