So the plan is to use the power of social networking to increase the awareness of HIV/Aids in children. Women need to receive antiretroviral drugs to prevent the virus being passed to their unborn babies. If this can happen reports are stating that in 2015 there should be a significant decrease in the amount of children born with HIV. Instead of saying zero children will be born infected with the virus, in reality about only 13% of women will most likely unavoidably transmit the virus to their children.

"AIDS," Carroll said, "should not be a disease of children."
