Inform health professionals in hospitals, IPS and civil society organizations - NGOs, where maternal population living with HIV can be attended, on how it is possible to reduce to 50% the number of cases of babies infected via mother-child; sensitize health professionals to provide adequate and quality care required by a pregnant mother living with the virus and her baby.

Empower pregnant women living with the virus, their partner and their family environment in the cities of Bogotá, Barranquilla and Cartagena as part of the Colombian Caribbean zone with indicators that merit our intervention, in order to educate and provide truthful and responsible information on how to prevent their daughter or son from being born infected; monitor the mother and the baby during pregnancy, childbirth, postpartum and breastfeeding.

Strengthen links with hospitals, IPS and civil society organizations - NGOs with which Planeta Amor has signed alliances for the development of its project "Mothers transmitting Life and not HIV"; as the responsible entity it reports on HIV and AIDS, the rights of children and their mothers and what is a responsible sexual life.

Topics addressed during trainings:

1. Risk factors for mother-to-child transmission of HIV:

Talks-workshops with emphasis on how to prevent mother-to-child infection. With the participation of health care professionals and the work team (psychology, nursing and social work, among others) the importance of complying with established protocols is addressed, such as the timely taking of antiretroviral drugs from the mother during pregnancy; in the postpartum period, the supply of antiretroviral drugs to the baby, according to the instructions of the treating infectious doctor, as prophylaxis and during breastfeeding so that the viral load of the mother has the lowest possible number of copies of the virus in her body.

2. What is HIV and what is AIDS:

Through these conversations, the interventions reaffirm knowledge about what HIV is and what AIDS is; they also address indicators of the adolescent and young population as the most vulnerable - population between the ages of 15 and 25; how to prevent infection and if the patient tests positive for HIV, who to turn to for professional and responsible information and advice. In a number of situations we have found that some health professionals are unaware of some of this information.

3. Children's and women's rights:

Like any project developed by Planeta Amor, the Rights of the Child are the fundamental axis for fulfilling its Mission; it is the starting point for our work, its enforceability and fulfillment; all the actors who participate in the project activities receive detailed information about the right to life, to health, to education, to live in family and community, to give their opinion, among many others, and how to advocate for their fulfillment.

4. A mother living with HIV can lead a responsible sexual and reproductive life:

Finally, through interactive exercises, those attending the trainings know the rights of mothers living with the virus: the right to enjoy a healthy sexual life, the right to choose whether or not to have children and how many, to sexual and reproductive health care, to obtain clear and simple information; to know and choose contraceptive methods, accessing them free of charge. The right not to be rejected at work or at an educational institution because you are pregnant; how to avoid having your rights violated or what to do when your rights have been violated.
