Women and children in Rwanda are still vulnerable to the repercussions of the genocide and war that took place 16 years ago. Treating HIV-positive women, preventing transmission of the virus to their offspring, and ensuring access to health care and reproductive services, as well as preventing and responding to the violence awoken by the brutalization of society during the genocide, are critical issues for the development of Rwanda and the safety of its women and children. Building on the success of the Zonta-funded project during the 2008-2010 Biennium, Zonta International will donate US$500,000 to UNICEF during the 2010-2012 Biennium to provide a full-range of family package services to prevent mother-to-child transmission of HIV at 20 health care sites throughout Rwanda and expand holistic care and services at support centers for survivors of domestic and gender-based violence to ensure access to proper medical, legal, psychosocial and police support.
