Maamohelang kisses her son.

A few months after Tsokuliso’s death, Maamohelang realized she had conceived again. Knowing she was HIV-positive, she visited the Molikaliko clinic and received medication to prevent passing HIV on to her child. In August 2008, her baby was born, HIV-free. His name is Rebone, which means “we have witnessed.” Maamohelang continues to take HIV treatment, thanks to the support of USAID and the Riders for Health program. Credit: Reverie Zurba/USAID.

 

The USAID-supported Horse Riding for Health program engages pony riders and motorcycle riders to transport blood tests, drugs, and supplies to Lesotho’s remote mountain health clinics. The system allows people to receive HIV test results sooner, access life-saving drugs, and ensure an uninterrupted supply of medication.
