How it works

For every photo donated, Johnson & Johnson gives $1 US to Born Free Africa. That $1 US helps train a health care worker in sub-Saharan Africa to eliminate mother to child transmission of HIV by better treating pregnant HIV+ women and tracking their adherence to critical medication over time. It takes 80 photos to train one health care worker.


Born Free Africa is a private philanthropic initiative working to end AIDS by eliminating mother-to-child transmission of HIV (eMTCT). Born Free Africa works directly with African government leaders to build stronger teams of local talent who work directly with health care providers to accelerate progress toward elimination of mother to child transmission of HIV. These teams are exceptionally strategic and break down existing barriers in management and health care service delivery. One pill, once a day is enough to prevent mother-to-child transmission of the HIV virus. Sub-Saharan Africa has made tremendous progress toward eMTCT. Supporting Born Free Africa helps give health care workers in sub-Saharan Africa the tools and knowledge that they need to better treat pregnant HIV+ women and protect the next generation from HIV.
