Lessons on HIV from Latin America and the Caribbean
December 1, 20151850 I Street NW, Washington, DC, Room I8-300

On June 30, Cuba became the first country in the world to eliminate mother to child transmission of HIV and syphillis. This means less than 2% were born with HIV (which is the lowest rate attainable with current preventative measures). Also, Argentina and Brazil were the first two countries in Latin America and Caribbean region that introduced financial protection for the poorest with free access to HIV/AIDS treatment.
