Monrovia, Liberia – JUNE 15, 2012: Princess Adeyeo is HIV positive, but thanks to funding from the Global Fund she is still alive because of ART provided through JFK Hospitol in Monrovia. While on ARVs Princess became pregnant. Because she went through the PMTCT program at JFK, she was able to give birth to a healthy HIV free baby boy, Michael. Unfortunately, Michael was not so lucky. His mother defaulted on her ART and then got pregnant with him. Michael was born HIV positive and five months later his mother died, but Princess has taken him in and cares for baby Michael like her own child. Princess is also a peer-to-peer educator at JFK hopsital and counsels other HIV positive women, encouraging them to adhere to the PMTCT program. Photo by Morgana Wingard
