PHOTO OF THE WEEK: 28 March 2011

Zambia, 2010: Two-year-old Bright smiles at his aunt and primary caretaker Leontina in Mulebambushi Village. Bright acquired HIV in utero, and his mother, Yvonne, died of an AIDS-related illness last year. Services to prevent the mother-to-child transmission of HIV are now available in their district, and Bright is receiving life-saving antiretroviral medicines.
